 The Best New Movies To Stream On Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO, Disney+ And Peacock This Weekend

Ah, the month of May—thank you so much. We welcome you with open arms as you bring us so many great movies. And this weekend is the biggest one of them all, as every one of the major streaming platforms—which includes Netflix

NFLX
, Amazon

AMZN
Prime, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+ and Peacock—will offer up dozens of new films to choose from.

But how do you decide what to watch? Especially if you (like me) subscribe to several different streaming platforms?

Well, hopefully this article can help. I will highlight the biggest releases coming to the streaming world this weekend. And then at the end of the article, you can find a fill list of all the new options available over the next three days.

500 Days of Summer (Hulu)

500 Days of Summer came out during a weird time in movie history. Zooey Deschanel had become the poster child for the “Manic Pixie Dream Girl”—and if you don’t know what that means, then just watch this very indie, very quirky movie. 500 Days of Summer centers on a greeting card writer named Tom (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who tries to understand why his girlfriend Summer (played by Deschanel) dumped him.

Other notable movies: Bound, Dances with Wolves, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Predator, Reservoir Dogs, Train to Busan, The Wailing

Back to the Future trilogy (Netflix)

Why watch just one Back to the Future movie…when you can watch all three? This epic blockbuster series from Robert Zemeckis offers up three completely different takes on time travel in what could be considered the height the entertainment.

Other notable movies: Resident Evil: Afterlife, Notting Hill, Mystic River, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Zombieland

Almost Famous (Amazon Prime)

A lot of people moan and cringe at the very mention of Cameron Crowe’s name. But despite his missteps, he did manage to make one movie that just about everybody agrees is great: Almost Famous. This classic coming-of-age road movie follows a 15-year-old boy named William who is hired by Rolling Stone magazine to interview the up-and-coming band Stillwater.

Other notable movies: Without Remorse, Aliens, Resident Evil, Scent of a Woman, The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable

Muriel’s Wedding (HBO Max)

It’s difficult for me to think of a movie more joyous than Muriel’s Wedding. This impossibly entertaining flick out of Australia marks Toni Collette’s first big splash on the movie scene. The film centers on a socially awkward woman named Muriel (played by Collette) who desperately wants to get married.

Other notable movies: Tenet, The Cable Guy, Frida, Jackie Brown, Magic Mike, When Harry Met Sally

White House Down (Peacock)

Every year on Independence Day, my wife and I have made it a tradition to watch White House Down. In our opinion, this Roland Emmerich action film is one of the most entertaining blockbusters of the 2010s. The movie follows a Capitol police officer (played by Channing Tatum) who must protect the President of the United States (Jamie Foxx) after terrorists infiltrate the White House.

Other notable movies: The Bourne series, Dazed and Confused, Hellboy, Miami Vice, The World’s End
