The last weekend of each month is normally a fairly light time for streaming services, as the start of the following month is usually when platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu add dozens of new movies to their libraries.
But this weekend happens to be pretty substantial. Between six of the biggest streamers – which include HBO Max, Amazon Prime, Disney +, Netflix, Apple TV, and Hulu – there will be a total of 18 new movies to choose from.
Here I am going to highlight some of the most notable films. And at the end of the article, you can find a full list of new releases.
Lupe (HBO Max)
While Tom and Jerry is arguably the biggest movie to air this weekend, there’s one more movie on HBO Max that maybe deserves your attention more. Lupe– a drama about a Cuban boxer grappling with his transgender identity – was a darling of the film festival circuit and is now set to reach a wider audience with its streaming premiere.
Captain Fantastic (Netflix)
If you’re looking for a more family-friendly option this weekend on Netflix, then Bigfoot family could be your best bet. But you shouldn’t jump on it Fantastic captain, a 2016 film about a man named Ben (played by Viggo Mortensen) who has to learn to raise his children on his own after the death of his wife.
The United States vs. Billie Holiday (Hulu)
The other big movie to hit Hulu this weekend is Florence foster jenkins. But it’s hard to recommend anything but The United States vs. Billie Holiday, which was directed by the great Lee Daniels and stars several heavyweight actors (Andra Day, Trevante Rhodes, LaKeith Stanfield and Garrett Hedlund, to name a few).
Blade Runner 2049 (HBO Max)
The other big addition to HBO Max’s lineup this weekend is Blade Runner 2049, which became Denis Villeneuve’s greatest film to date in 2017. This sequel to the original classic Blade runner follows a new Blade Runner (played by Ryan Gosling) in the Los Angeles Police Department.
Billie Eilish: The world is a bit hazy (Apple TV)
Although several music documentaries are released each month, Billie Eilish: The world is a bit hazy seems to promise a deviation from the norm. The film details the making of Billie Eilish’s debut studio album When we all fall asleep, where do we go?
