Kicking off its release with a brief theatrical run, "Malcolm & Marie" will now be available to stream on Netflix starting this Friday.

This black-and-white romance drama pairs John David Washington and Zendaya as a passionate couple that's having a little bit of trouble in paradise.

To prepare for the film, we've found 3 more films from the lovely Zendaya that you should watch before you stream it.

  • Spider-Man: Far From Home

    Though she made her first appearance in the MCU in "Spider-Man: Homecoming," Zendaya was even more amazing in "Spider-Man: Far From Home." While everyone is on a school field trip in Europe, and Peter Parker is still trying to keep his identity secret, MJ (Zendaya) is always playing it cool with her no-nonsense attitude and seen-it-all perspective.

    Now streaming on: STARZ, Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, VUDU, & Philo

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    Action / 2019

    Peter Parker's relaxing European vacation takes an unexpected turn when Nick Fury shows up in his hotel room to recruit him for a mission. The world is in danger as four massive elemental creatures -- each representing Earth, air, water and fire -- emerge from a hole torn in the universe. Parker soon finds himself donning the Spider-Man suit to help Fury and fellow superhero Mysterio stop the evil entities from wreaking havoc across the continent.

  • The Greatest Showman

    This pick is one of Zendaya's more stunt and performance heavy films, where she's singing, dancing, and trapezing throughout the majority of the film. She also does an amazing job showcasing how versatile an actress she is, and shares a moment with Zac Efron where they lock eyes, and time really does stand still for a moment.

    Now streaming on: Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, & VUDU

    The Greatest Showman

    Musical / 2017
