We’re well into the summer blockbuster season, with Barbie and Oppenheimer out now, but you don’t have to go to the theater to catch a big new movie. The major streaming services are always bringing new (and classic) movies to their libraries throughout the year.
However, with so much coming and going, it’s easy to miss when an exciting new movie worth your while is available to stream. So, we made this roundup. Every week, we review the best new movies to stream on Netflix, Hulu, Prime, Max (HBO), and other streaming services.
M3GAN became a meme culture of its own, which fortunately didn’t take too much away from the fact that it’s actually a pretty good movie. Designed by toy company roboticist Gemma (Allison Williams), M3GAN is a marvel of artificial intelligence. The life-like doll is programmed to be a child’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally — the coolest toy ever, basically.
But when Gemma suddenly becomes the caretaker of her 8-year-old niece, Cady (Violet McGraw), it’s M3GAN, not Gemma who takes on the brunt of the protector responsibilities. And M3GAN takes those responsibilities very, VERY seriously.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania didn’t exactly launch Phase 5 of the MCU into hyperspace, especially after abuse allegations were targeted toward the MCU’s new big bad, Jonathan Majors, but it’s still worth a watch for Marvel adherents.
In the film, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) continue their study of the Quantum Realm. But when they’re sucked in, along with Scott’s daughter, Cassie (Kathryn Newton), they encounter strange new creatures firsthand and come face-to-face with a terrifying new threat: Kang the Conqueror (Majors).
This genre-bending rom-com stars Chris Evans and Ana de Armas as polar opposites who stumble into romance. Cole (Evans) is a salt-of-the-earth, cautious romantic who falls head over heels for the enigmatic Sadie (de Armas) after one good date.
But when she stops replying to his texts, Cole begins to fear he’s been ghosted. Turns out, she’s a secret agent, and before she can completely ghost Cole, they’re forced to team up on an international adventure to save the world.
