An eclectic, post-holiday set of new releases this week (Jan. 3-7) includes The 355, a gripping spy thriller from director Simon Kinberg, featuring Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger, Penelope Cruz and Lupita Nyong'o as an all-female foursome of international agents working to recover a very dangerous top-secret weapon—and the latest finely wrought drama from the two-time Oscar winning Iranian master Asfghar Farhadi, A Hero
