Sharks. Women’s soccer. Teenage vampires. And a sequel 25 years in the making. What do all of these things have in common? They all are part of this weekend’s streaming lineup, which will feature 22 new movies on the biggest platforms, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Max, Disney+, and Peacock.
So where do you start? Hopefully I can help. I will highlight five of the biggest additions to the streaming landscape this weekend. Then at the end of the article, you can find a full list of every new movie available between today and Sunday.
Fear Street Part 3: 1666 (Netflix)
With Fear Street, we’re getting not one, not two, but three movies—all in the span of two weeks. On July 2, Fear Street Part 1: 1994 made its Netflix debut. And just seven days later, Fear Street Part 2: 1978 continued the terrifying adventures of Sadie and her teenage friends, who must travel through time to stop an evil force that’s plagued their town for centuries. That trilogy reaches its conclusion this weekend with Fear Street Part 3: 1666, which is now streaming on Netflix.
Space Jam: A New Legacy (HBO Max)
If you were a kid living in the ‘90s, then Space Jam was…well, your jam. Michael Jordan teamed up with the Looney Tunes to play basketball. What’s there not to love? And this weekend, we’re getting an updated version with the NBA’s current biggest star: LeBron James. Space Jam: A New Legacy is now streaming on HBO Max.
Miss Pettigrew Lives for A Day (Amazon Prime)
Amazon Prime isn’t very active with its movie additions throughout the month. But this weekend they’ve got one intriguing option: the 2008 romantic comedy Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. The film, which stars Amy Adams and two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand, focuses on Guinevere Pettigrew, who is unfairly dismissed from her job and begins to work for an entertainer. Miss Pettigrew lives for a day is now streaming on Amazon Prime.
Jamie Foxx has of course been the star of several gigantic films in Hollywood, including Project Power, Miami Vice, and Django Unchained. But his most memorable performance to date may be as Ray Charles—and the Academy agreed when it awarded him Best Actor for the role. Ray, which is now streaming on Peacock, tells the life story of the famed R&B musician.
We Bought A Zoo (Disney+)
It’s strange to think that Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, and Elle Fanning all starred in a movie together ten years ago. But that’s exactly what happened when Cameron Crowe released his feel-good family drama We Bought a Zoo back in 2011. The film follows a journalist who, after the death of his wife, decides to move his family to a wildlife park. We Bought a Zoo is now streaming on Disney+.
