Showtime today has added 40 new movies to its cable/satellite and streaming lineups.

The new films include director Sam Mendes’ twisted but painfully accurate satire of suburban life with Kevin Spacey starring as a Dad who comes down with a serious case of arrested development in his late 30s; Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Steven Spielberg’s amazing sci-fi spectacle about a benign invasion by space aliens; the three Godfather movies, including director Francis Ford Coppola’s newly reedited part three, called Mario Puzo’s The Godfather: The Death of Michael Corleone; and Damsels in Distress, director Whit Stillman’s hilarious send-up of modern campus life with Greta Gerwig starring as a coed striving to bring civility and order to a often uncivil and byzantine world.
