As the month of March rolls along, more and more movies are added to our favorite streaming services. And this weekend, just about every one of the major streaming outlets will be offering up brand new films to choose from.
But which movies have the most hype? In this article, I’ll go over the major highlights to expect this weekend. And then at the end of the story, you’ll find a full list of every film dropping on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+ and Apple TV over the next three days.
Yes Day (Netflix)
Netflix’s big new release is poised to become one of its most popular movies in 2021: Yes Day. Akin to We Can Be Heroes in its target demographic, this family-friendly film starring Jennifer Garner, Édgar Ramírez and Jenna Ortega centers on a mom and dad who agree to say “yes” to everything their children ask for an entire 24-hour period.
Cherry (Apple TV)
In what is undoubtedly one of the biggest streaming-only releases of 2021, Cherry represents the return of directors Joe and Anthony Russo—you know, the guys who made the highest-grossing movie of all time, Avengers: Endgame. Their latest film, Cherry, stars Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, in a much grittier role.
Nuestras Madres (HBO Max)
Nuestras Madres, a film from César Díaz, tells the tale of Ernesto, who is a young anthropologist out of Guatemala. After hearing an account from an elderly woman, he believes he has found the key to locate his father who went missing during a war.
Farewell Amor (Hulu)
An intriguing indie drama from IFC Films, Farewell Amor centers on an Angolan woman and her daughter as they reunite with her husband after he spent 17 years in exile. Their shared love of dance helps them to overcome the years of distance between them.
Honest Thief (Amazon prime)
In what promises to be yet another high-octane action/thriller from Liam Neeson, the 2020 release Honest Thief heads to Amazon Prime this weekend. Neeson plays a professional bank robber who wishes to live an honest life—just before he is framed by the FBI for murder.
