Are you looking for new releases in Film or Television to watch this weekend of June 24th!? Well, THS has you covered in our weekly series! So, make sure to come back each week as we compile all of our recommendations for you to check out on your days off.
However, I wanted to break down this list and make it a little more personal. Kind of like when you walk into a book store and see the wall of employee recommendations. So, I’ll be breaking down this list as to what we at THS are watching, not necessarily every single thing releasing.
I’m going to be watching the latest Ms. Marvel on Disney+. Then, The Black Phone in theaters!. Also, I finally got around to starting Neon Genesis Evangelion (I missed the boat in the 90s, okay?). It’s streaming on Netflix.
This weekend I’m going to be re-visiting the first couple of episodes of Apple TV+‘s Loot, even though the show didn’t fully impress me with its first season, it’s still a lot of fun. Also, Netflix has the new Woody Harrelson-Kevin Hart action-comedy The Man From Toronto, which will be a good Friday night watch with friends. And finally, I will be attempting to find a movie theater playing Marcel the Shell With Shoes On as I’ve heard it’s one of the best films of the year (an A24 clay-mation mockumentary film…!? I’m so in!)
I’m headed to theaters to watch The Black Phone and the new Elvis movie! Then, I’ll be streaming Loot on AppleTV+, and Trevor: The Musical on Disney+.
I’m super excited for The Black Phone!! So, it looks like I’m headed to the theater.
TRAVIS IS WATCHING
This weekend I’ll be streaming the latest episode of The Boys on Prime Video to see what new craziness always is. I’ll also be watching the first few episodes of Netflix’s Umbrella Academy season 3, or perhaps the entire season if I can’t resist the urge to binge-watch.
After blubbering at the end of Obi-Wan. I plan on watching Ms. Marvel on Disney+, The Orville on Hulu, Dragons: Race to the Edge on Netflix and topping it off with Umbrella Academy Season 3 also streaming on Netflix.
It’s Ms. Marvel on Disney+ time for me!
I’m watching more Thermae Romae Novae on Netflix. It’s the most strangely interesting anime about Ancient Rome I’ve ever seen.
I’m going to be watching the new Ms. Marvel on Disney+, as well as Motherland: Fort Salem on Freeform On Demand. The new season is premiering and I want to see how the ending of last season kicks off the start of this season!
I’m diving into Umbrella Academy Season 3 on Netflix, as well as watching Multiverse of Madness on Disney+!
I’m headed to theaters to watch The Black Phone. Then, back to my couch to watch the new season of The Boys on Prime Video, and The Thing (1982) on Peacock.
