Weekend Streaming Highlights

This weekend’s streaming lineup offers a diverse mix of entertainment, headlined by Super Mario, an Elvis holiday special, Paris Hilton’s new chapter in motherhood, and the final appearance of Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. These are just a few highlights selected by The Big Big News’ entertainment team.

UPCOMING MOVIE STREAMS

— Netflix is set to stream “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” the year’s top-grossing film, excluding “Barbie.” Initially available on Peacock, this movie, with its staggering $1.4 billion box office earnings, slightly outperformed the notorious 1993 Super Mario Bros adaptation. The film’s vivid colors earned praise in my review, although I noted that it lacks the interactive excitement of playing the game itself.

— “May December,” directed by Todd Haynes and premiering on Netflix, delves into a complex drama. The film, inspired by the true story of Mary Kay Letourneau, stars Julianne Moore and Charles Melton as a couple years removed from a scandalous relationship. Natalie Portman plays an actress researching the pair for a film. AP’s Lindsey Bahr described it as “a bold, humorously self-aware, and emotionally intricate drama that resists easy classification.”

— Harrison Ford’s final portrayal of Indiana Jones in “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” arrives on Disney+ this Friday. Despite a mixed critical and box office reception, the film, directed by James Mangold and featuring Phoebe Waller Bridges and Karen Allen, offers a memorable conclusion. Bahr acknowledges its shortcomings compared to earlier installments, yet appreciates it as a respectable, swashbuckling adventure and a fitting farewell to one of cinema’s most iconic roles.

This special, following NBC’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center,” marks the first televised concert from Graceland, with Riley Keough making special appearances.

— Peter Gabriel’s long-awaited album, “i/o,” featuring a mix of bright and dark tones, releases this Friday. The album, with input from Brian Eno and others, culminates a year of single releases timed with each month’s full moon.

— The Violent Femmes’ 40th anniversary of their self-titled debut album, releasing this Friday, includes demos, B-sides, and live performances of their iconic songs.
