Happy Friday to all my lovely people of the world. It is a beautiful day to head to Starbucks, grab a coffee and watch a movie. Below, we share the best new weekend movies to watch in theaters and available on streaming services that you won’t want to miss.

When I tell you this is one of the widest ranges of movies being released in one weekend, I mean it. So we have a bear on cocaine (true story), people realizing they have a ghost, a revolution for Jesus, and a movie that might have a happy ending? What a sentence.

Weekend movies to watch (and stream) today

  • Cocaine Bear, Theaters
  • Jesus Revolution, Theaters
  • My Happy Ending, Theaters
  • We Have a Ghost, Netflix
  • Bruiser, Hulu

Cocaine Bear seems like a made-up movie that would be dropped straight to VOD, starring Bruce Willis fighting a bear while on cocaine. However, that is not this movie, it is based on the true story of a 500-pound black bear that went on a rampage murdering people after ingesting cocaine. You are like, NO WAY, this is true, folks, it is a true story. I am sure it’ll be Hollywood-ized, but you have Elizabeth Banks directing the film with Ray Liotta, Matthew Rhys, Keri Russell, and O’Shea Jackson Jr. starring in the movie. I will be seated front and center upon its release.

We have a brand new movie from the creative mind behind the Paranormal Activity franchise, Happy Death Day 2U, and Freaky in the Netflix movie, We Have a Ghost. The film follows the story of a ghost named Ernest haunting Kevin and his family. However, it turns the family into massive social media stars. The film stars David Harbour, Jennifer Coolidge, and Anthony Mackie.

Next. The Departed and the 10 best movies of all time. dark
