Macy; Suffragette, starring Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Meryl Streep, Ben Wishaw, and Brendan Gleeson; Black Mass, starring Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, Dakota Johnson, Joel Edgerton, Juno Temple, and Kevin Bacon; Spotlight, starring Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Shreiber, Mark Ruffalo, Stanley Tucci, and John Slattery; and Beasts of No Nation, starring Idris Elba.
