Between movie theaters, VOD, Redbox, Netflix and the rest of the streaming platforms, a lot of content dropped this week. I went through and found some of the best options you can watch this weekend.
The Belcourt (Virtual)
IMDB: “A crew of astronauts on a multi-generational mission descend into paranoia and madness, not knowing what is real or not.”
Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar
Reunited and it feels so good! Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, whose combined forces brought us one of the funniest films of all time (Bridesmaids), are back with their latest joint venture. The pair star as Barb and Star, two ladies down on their luck who decide they need a vacation. Jamie Dornan steals the show with an outlandish yet hilarious performance as Edgar. If there is one film you watch this weekend, make it this one. You won’t regret it.
Speaking of dynamic duos, husband and wife combination Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy bring superhero-style action to Netflix this weekend. McCarthy stars alongside Octavia Spencer star as best friends that join forces to take down the supervillains in their city.
The New Mutants
IMDB: “Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.”
