At the end of the article, you’ll find a full list of all the new movies available to stream this weekend.
The White Lotus: Season 2 (HBO)
An all-star cast heads to a beach resort and unleashes its most privileged worst impulses. The series is a sharp social satire that follows the exploits of various guests and employees of the fictional resort chain White Lotus, whose stay is affected by their various dysfunctions. A week in the life of vacationers unfolds as they relax and rejuvenate in paradise. With each passing day, a darker complexity emerges in these picture-perfect travelers, the cheerful hotel employees, and the idyllic place itself.
Wendell & Wild (Netflix)
The two devious demon brothers Wendell and Wild (Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key) must face their nemesis with the help of the nun Sister Helly, known for expelling demons. However, the brothers are not only tormented by her, but also by her altar boys.
Run Sweetheart Run (Amazon Prime)
After what begins as a dinner date with a client, a single mother finds herself stalked by a monstrous and seemingly unstoppable assailant.
A tormented garbage man named Clean tries to live a quiet life of redemption, but when his good intentions make him the target of a local crime boss, he must soon come to terms with the violence of his past.
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
Now in the care of Dave Seville’s nephew (Zachary Levi), chipmunks Alvin, Simon and Theodore are taking a break from pop music stardom and returning to school. Almost immediately, the tiny blacksmiths are given the mammoth task of saving their school’s music program by winning a battle of the bands contest. Although the boys think winning will be easy, romantic and musical sparks fly when they meet Brittany, Eleanor and Jeannette – also known as The Chipettes.
The Black and the Blues of Louis Armstrong
This documentary pays homage to the musician’s legacy as the founding father of jazz. The film shows how Armstrong’s life spans the transition from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, and how he became a lightning rod figure during this turbulent time.
Survival of the Dead (Mubi)
Zombies have taken over the world, and a ragtag band of soldiers led by Sarge Crockett (Alan Van Sprang) roams the countryside trying to salvage what they can. Constantly on guard against Flesh Eaters, the group is intrigued when they hear of a safe haven on Plum Island. But when they arrive, they find the supposed paradise torn apart by a family feud between the O’Flynns, who want to exterminate all zombies, and the Muldoons, who coexist peacefully with their undead relatives.
