Movie theaters are slowly reopening, but many don’t have new releases quite yet, and studios seems to be embracing the streaming model. Whether you’re staying at home to limit potential risks, or just saving a few bucks by watching from the couch, we’ve organized a huge list with many of the newly added films and some upcoming releases.
New this week: The big talk of the week has been all about the Broadway production Hamilton coming to Disney+. Despite being a holiday weekend (of sorts) in the US, there are a decent number of releases with a lot of familiar names, albeit people we haven’t heard from in quite a while. If you’re looking for some action, check out Mel Gibson and David Zayas going head to head in Force of Nature. To keep the blood pumping, The Outpost tells a story based on true events about soldiers in Afghanistan defending against Taliban insurgents, starring Orlando Bloom and Scott Eastwood. And if you want some true B-movie action, just peek at Top Gunner, starring Eric Roberts — you know what to expect here.
And if you’re looking for something a little lighter, Netflix brings us Desperados, a comedy that takes three women down to Mexico for a mad dash to stop a guy from reading a message. And for some family friendly fun, Four Kids and It imagines a wish-granting creature voiced by Michael Caine, a good-hearted family, and a whacky (live action) Scrooge McDuck-like character played by Russell Brand.
