With The Boys, Prime Video explores what the world would be like if cape-wearers were the bad guys. Samaritan, the streamer’s latest title centered on superheroes, imagines a scenario where a reluctant do-gooder goes missing and is reported dead. Starring Euphoria’s Javon Walton and Sylvester Stallone, the movie picks up two decades after that happens to Joe Smith (Stallone), and sees him trying to keep a low profile as a refuse collector. Despite Joe’s best efforts, his neighbour Sam (Stallone) learns of his past, and with their city in a bad way, the youngster tries to convince the old-timer to return to his roots. Directed by Julius Avery, the flick also stars Dascha Polanco, Martin Starr, and Moisés Arias.

Perhaps you’re in the mood for some laughs this weekend instead? If so, Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg offer up Me Time, a new comedy movie that follows a weary father, who reaches out to a former friend and proposes that the pair indulge in a wild weekend while his wife and kids are away. What he didn’t expect, though, was to find himself again while the twosome engage in all sorts of crazy antics. Regina Hall also stars.

The first two episodes of new documentary series Welcome to Wrexham have premiered on Hulu in the US and Disney Plus in the UK.

If you’re waiting impatiently for Selling Sunset season 6 to arrive on Netflix, there’s a new spin-off on the streamer. Selling the OC follows the Oppenheim Group as owner Jason opens its second office on Newport Beach in Orange County, California. Although there’s a new cast of real estate agents to contend with, we can expect the same drama, ostentatious houses, and high-heeled shoes that look like they should be impossible to walk in as it’s Sunset Boulevard counterpart. 

Little Demon – Hulu

Still, accepting her lot in life, she tries to give daughter Chrissy a normal life; a task made difficult by a bunch of monstrous forces and Satan’s constant attempts to gain custody of the youngster’s soul.Guest stars across season 1 include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rhea Perlman, Shangela, Patrick Wilson, Dave Bautista, Willia, Jackson Harper, and Mel Brooks.

Alana Haim plays Alana, a directionless woman in her 20s who strikes up a friendship with Gary – and plenty of madcap escapades ensue.
