Everybody’s working for the weekend and we have MADE it. Below, we share the best new movies to watch in theaters and films available on streaming services that you won’t want to miss.
I expect there will be many people groggy at work today because they stayed up overnight to watch the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, you better get a nap because we have a loaded slate of films coming out this weekend.
New movies to watch in theaters and streaming
- Top Gun: Maverick, Theaters
- Bob’s Burgers, Theaters
- Emergency, Prime video
- There Are No Saints, VOD
- Look at Me: XXXTENTACION, Hulu
The weekend’s big release is Top Gun: Maverick. The movie has been pushed several times over the last couple of years due to COVID and it finally is ready to grace the big screen. After thirty years of service, Maverick is one of the Navy’s top aviators where he belongs, pushing the envelope and dodging advancement that would ground him. I am excited to see what kind of crazy stunts Cruise has in store for us.
Are you a fan of the show Bob’s Burgers? Well, the team has gotten back together to release a movie for you to enjoy on the big screen. The show was never my cup of tea, but if you loved it, I hope the film is great.
One of the surprise hits from the 2022 Sundance film festival is hitting Amazon Prime Video this weekend in Emergency. I loved this film a whole lot. It has incredible writing by K.D. Davila, excellent direction by Carey Williams and powerhouse performances from our leads (R.J. Cyler, Donald Watkins and Sebastian Chacon). I can’t recommend this one enough.
What will you be watching this weekend? Will you enjoy a movie in theaters or streaming?
