The sequel to Rian Johnson’s entertaining murder mystery (starring Daniel Craig) gets a star-studded sequel, now also starring Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom and more. This one involves a murder on a private Greek island. (November 23 in theaters; December 23 on Netflix)

This Rob McElhenney comedy about wildly dysfunctional video game developers enters season three with a clash between two competing companies and a dive into the metaverse, which is pretty much designed for satire as it is. (November 11, Apple TV+)

Why hasn’t anyone ever done a brunch-centric reality/cooking show?

On Only the strong survive, the iconic New Jersey rocker tackles an array of classic R&B, soul and early rock. Do we need a Springsteen cover album? Maybe, maybe not, but it will make dads (granddads?) everywhere happy (and the first single is a pretty heavy-hitting version of “Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)”).

More new music: Billy Joel (live album, November 4); Morris Day (November 11); Guns ‘N Roses (box set, November 11); Neil Young with Crazy Horse (November 18); Tom Petty (live album, November 25)
