Film festival season has started fruit for audiences. This weekend includes two premieres from the Toronto Film Festival including The Woman King and the X prequel, Pearl. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the top movies this week.

The Woman King

Director Gina Prince-Bythewood’s The Woman King clicks in almost every way it needs to. The movie revolves around the African kingdom of Dahomey which is under threat from an empire.

King Ghezo (John Boyega) relies on the general of his all-female fighting unit, Nanisca (Davis) to build new troops for the impending battle.
