Newly announced films include “Lucy In The Sky” starring Natalie Portman as an astronaut losing touch with reality on her return to Earth, Jamie Dornan and Anthony Mackie as paramedics in the sci-fi/horror “Synchronic”, and the biographical thriller “Seberg”, featuring Kristen Stewart as iconic actress Jean Seberg in a tale about the young FBI agent (played by Jack O’Connell) who investigates her after she becomes embroiled in the civil rights movement of the 1960s.

Also announced are “Guns Akimbo” starring Daniel Radcliffe as a nerdy video game developer who becomes a participant in an illegal livestreamed deathmatch, the on-screen reunion of “The Theory Of Everything” stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in “The Aeronauts”, about a 19th-century scientist and a hot-air balloonist who make altitudinal and meteorological history, and the family drama “Human Capital” starring “Stranger Things” It girl Maya Hawke.
