Russell and Plemons are both Emmy nominees for their TV work — her for “The Americans” and him for “Fargo” and “Black Mirror.” In recent years they’ve been dabbling more in the film world. Russell played Zorii Bliss in “Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker” while Plemons can be seen in 2021 releases “The Power of the Dog,” “Jungle Cruise” and “Judas and the Black Messiah.” “Antlers” marks the first on-screen collaboration between Russell and Plemons.

Another red-hot box office release this weekend is “Last Night in Soho” (dir. Edgar Wright) from Universal Pictures. The Oscar contender stars Thomasin McKenzie as a contemporary college student who envisions herself as a glamorous 1960s socialite, played by Anya Taylor-Joy. The film also co-stars the late Diana Rigg in her final role.

Last weekend’s Top 5 box office champions in the U.S. were “Dune” ($40 million), “Halloween Kills” ($14 million), “No Time to Die” ($11 million), “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” ($9 million) and “Ron’s Gone Wrong” ($7 million).
