Here is Yahoo's guide to the best new movies to watch this week.
Knock at the Cabin | Sky Cinema and NOW (pick of the week)
M. Night Shyamalan's critically-acclaimed thriller follows fathers Eric (Jonathan Groff) and Andrew (Ben Aldridge) as they step up to protect their daughter Wen (Kristen Cui) when their vacation in the woods turns into a nightmare after they're held hostage by four strangers.
Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Abby Quinn and Nikki Amuka-Bird portray the people that take the family hostage, and urge them to sacrifice one person in order to save the world from an impending apocalypse.
Elemental | Disney+
Pixar's newest film examines how the power of love can be greater than any perceived difference between us, as a fire person and water person challenge the idea that they aren't meant to mix.
Set in Element city where fire, water, air and earth people live together, Ember meets Wade and the pair team up in a bid to save her father's shop from closing down.
After a sluggish start at the box office, Elemental went on to be a big hit with families over the summer, and it's arrival on Disney+ couldn't come soon enough.
80 for Brady | Sky Cinema and NOW
Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Rita Moreno and Sally Field star in this feel-good comedy, which follows a group of friends who are determined to meet their hero, Tom Brady.
Based on real-life events, the film explores the meaning of friendship through the quartet's experiences as they head to the Super Bowl to witness one of the great sports comebacks of all time.
80 For Brady is also streaming on Paramount+.
A Million Miles Away | Prime Video
Starring Michael Peña, A Million Miles Away follows the real-life story of NASA flight engineer José Hernández whose story saw him go from being a migrant farmworker to an astronaut.
Based on a book by Hernández, the film follows his decades-long journey to space with the support of his family, friends, and teachers.
