Merry Christmas to each of you, I hope Santa Claus is good to you this weekend. Below, we share the best new weekend movies to watch in theaters and available on streaming services that you won’t want to miss.

Look, Christmas is ALWAYS the most loaded slate on the movie schedule. So many people have traditions where they have an early lunch/dinner and pop in for a movie or vice versa. So, it is not a surprise that there are SO many movies hitting theaters this weekend.

Weekend movies to watch (and stream) today

  • Babylon, Theaters
  • Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, Theaters
  • I Wanna Dance With Somebody, Theaters
  • Living, Select Theaters
  • Corsage, Select Theaters
  • Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, Netflix

Where do I start? The cocaine-infused wild ride from the mind of Damien Chazelle? The best-animated movie of 2022 in Puss in Boots? Or the murder mystery from Rian Johnson? Or the biopic based on one of the greatest singers ever? I told you there are loads of options for you to check out.

First up, Babylon, and let me start by saying this is a THREE-HOUR movie, so if that isn’t your jam, you might want to wait till it hits VOD. However, this movie needs to be seen on the biggest of screens to enjoy the beautiful sights, sounds, and production design of the movie. From lights-out performances from Margot Robbie and Diego Calva to the beautiful score of Justin Hurwitz to the incredible costumes, you are all in for a real treat with this one.

When I sat down to watch Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, I only did so because of a friend of mine, Jillian, said it was AMAZING. I was confused but also intrigued, so I checked it out. My goodness, was she right because I had a blast with the film. It’s funny, heartfelt, and overall a good time that kids and adults can have.
