After several light weeks of movies, we have a full slate for you this weekend. Below, we’re sharing the best new movies to watch in theaters and the movies available on streaming services you won’t want to miss.
There are weeks like the last two where huge movies come out and streaming services and studios like to take a step back and find a hole where they can drop something, that’s that type of week. We’ve got the perfect mix of theatrical and streaming releases, so let’s get to it.
Weekend movies to watch (and stream) today
- Mrs. Harris goes to Paris, In theaters
- Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank, In theaters
- Where the Crawdads sing, In theaters
- The gray man (Limited), In theaters
- Don’t Make Me Go, Prime Video
- Zombie 3, Disney+
- Persuasion, netflix
The biggest release of the weekend is Where the Crawdads sing, a film adapted from the popular book of the same name. The film follows Kya, played by Daisy Edgar-Jones, about a woman who comes up and becomes a suspect in the murder of a man she was once involved with. I’m not sure I’m going to rush to see this one, but I’m interested in the plot, Daisy Edgar-Jones, and the Taylor Swift song.
We have Netflix continuing to dip their toes into theatrical releases ahead of their debut on their streaming platform with The gray man with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans. I love the idea of them exploring the theater option because some of their best films have felt like they would have looked even better on the big screen.
A few other options this weekend include Disney’s third installment. Zombie franchise, led by Dakota Johnson Persuasion hit Netflix and Don’t make me Go with John Cho on Prime Video which I highly recommend.
