"These women must bond together, overcoming their suspicions and conflicts, to use all their talents and training to stop an event from occurring that could thrust our teetering world into chaos. Along the way, these strangers and enemies become comrades and friends, and a new faction is formed code-named '355' (a name they adopt from the first female spy in the American Revolution)," the plot synopsis reads.

The espionage thriller, directed by Simon Kinberg, will release in the US on 15 January, 2021. However, it's release date in India is yet to be revealed.

Halal Love Story

Featuring Indrajith Sukumaran, Joju George, Parvathy Thiruvothu, Soubin Shahir, Sharafudheen, and Grace Antony in the lead, Halal Love Story focuses on “a group of passionate filmmakers who come together to create a film that follows religious guidelines in every phase of the filmmaking and the resulting chaos and confusion.”

Fatman

Fatman is about a rowdy Santa Claus who is fighting his business decline when he is forced to forge a partnership with the US military. In the meanwhile, a neglected and precocious 12-year-old hires a dangerous hitman to kill Santa after receiving a lump of coal in his stocking.

The trailer, which released recently, sees Mel Gibson play the part of a disgruntled Santa Claus.

The film is slated to release in select US theatres ON 17 November.
