5 new movie and TV releases to enjoy at home this weekend

Whether you've got Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, or Apple TV+, we've got something for you!

This weekend is the best time to catch up on some amazing new movies and TV shows that have been released on the streaming platforms in the last few days, and this week in particular has been a particularly generous one when it comes to great new additions to the libraries.

We've scoured them all and come up with the five best movie and TV shows for you to enjoy before Monday rolls back around again.

WandaVision (Disney+)

The first two episodes of WandaVision have been added to Disney's streaming service this weekend, and as we said in our review, this really feels like the Marvel Cinematic Universe's first foray into a proper big mystery.

We also took part in the global press conference for the show, and you can find out some of the behind-the-scenes details of the show right here.

Broken Law (Netflix)

The Irish crime drama has a score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, and while it was released in Irish cinemas in July 2020, due to the pandemic, it didn't get seen by enough viewers before cinemas were closed once again. Now is your chance to check it out from the comfort of your couch!

Servant (Apple TV+)

While there isn't exactly a lot of competition in the market right now, we're still calling Servant the best horror show right now. Check out our review here, but if you haven't checked out season one yet, then we fully recommend that you do, as the second season has kicked off this weekend!

One Night in Miami... (Prime Video)

You might think that because cinemas have been closed for most of the last year, then that might mean the upcoming Oscars race won't be as packed as usual. One Night In Miami... proves that isn't accurate, as the exceptional cast telling a truly unique story makes for a one of the more awards-likely releases you'll see.

Sputnik (Netflix)

And now for something completely different! To put it briefly, this is basically "Alien... if it was made by Russians". Or to put it another way, this is a brilliant sci-fi horror that mixes in some elements of classics of genre (including, yes, Alien), but ending up with a creation all its own.
