Big movies are playing at theaters, and at home, too. This weekend, after a trip to the cineplex, keep the film love going at home as well: you can choose from a gangster origin story, a frantic 911 call, a road trip from hell, or you can pop on a classic to prepare for some big theatrical releases. Here are the new movies you should watch from each streaming service. Happy streaming!
The Many Saints of Newark (HBO Max)
Wake up this morning and pop on this origin tale flashing back to how Tony Soprano gets made. Taking place in the late '60s, "The Many Saints of Newark" focuses on young Soprano (Michael Gandolfini) and his mentorship with uncle Dickie Moltisanti (Alessandro Nivola). Fans of "The Sopranos" will enjoy seeing younger versions of classic characters. This includes Silvio Dante (John Magaro), Paulie Walnuts (Billy Magnussen), and Pussy Bonpensiero (Samson Moeakiola). Not to mention wonderful takes on Livia and Junior from Vera Farmiga and Corey Stoll. There are also fun easter eggs to spot for the eagle-eyed viewer. After the movie, why not stick around for a full "Sopranos" binge on the platform?

The Guilty (Netflix)
LAPD detective Joe Baylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) is now working the phones at the 911 call center. But this will not be a typical night. Antoine Fuqua helms this crime thriller, a remake of a Danish thriller from 2018. That movie was Denmark's submission for Best Foreign Language Film. This remake might not reach the emotional heights of the original, but Gyllenhaal and Fuqua will still take you on quite a ride.
The Addams Family 2 (PVOD)
The creepy and kooky Addams family are back after their successful box office run in 2019. This time parents Gomez and Morticia pack up the car for a wacky road trip across the USA. The movie might not have the same charm as the original, but there's still enough for kids to enjoy. Doubly so as they get set for Halloween at the end of the month.

Black as Night (Amazon)
Welcome to the Blumhouse! The horror production house and Amazon have teamed up for another scary October. "Black as Night" takes you to the bloodsucking streets of New Orleans. There, a teen girl (Asjha Cooper) finds confidence as she hunts vampires across the Big Easy. The fright fest debuts with the equally creepy "Bingo Hell." Two more Blumhouse productions will drop next week, "Madres" and "The Manor."
With "No Time to Die" hitting theaters next week, there's no time better than now to prepare for Daniel Craig's last adventure as Bond. Hulu has what's arguably the best of the Craig era, "Skyfall."
