6 New Netflix, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime, and Mubi movies and shows to watch this weekend
This is another week of closure, who knows how many are left to go. At least we have seen a whole bunch of new Netflix shows. And if what's new on Netflix this month doesn't suit your streaming needs, don't be afraid since we also have some films from other streamers, including Disney Plus and Mubi (because frankly this is the latest addition, Pain and Glory) it is worth looking for immediately).
So what are you waiting for? Keep scrolling and find out what's new in streaming this weekend (June 20th)!
Politician Season 2 - Netflix
Ryan Murphy's satirical take on American politics is returning, and this time Ben Platt's Payton Hobart has grown from trying to become president of his school's student body to a candidate for a seat in the New York State Senate. This time he will face Judith Lights majority leader Dede Standish. The new series has already received rave reviews and is one with only seven episodes to survive this weekend.

Rick and Morty Season 4A - Netflix
Available: Netflix UK
It may not be the entire episode of season four, but you can now watch the first half of the latest season of Rick and Morty - including some of the best Rick and Morty episodes ever. The Adult Swim series continues its inimitable brand of high-concept comedy with shock factor, with episodes that falsify parallel universes (did someone say "fascist wasps"?), Robbery films, time travel and more snakes than you can shake with a glootie can. It all adds up to a short piece of science fiction that will make you laugh through all five episodes.
7500 - Amazon Prime
If you wanted your new movie scratched before the cinemas reopened, you could do much worse than 7500, which is now available on Amazon Prime Video. Why the name? This is the emergency code for a hijacked plane - and a situation that copilot Tobias (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) has to deal with at 20,000 feet, no less. He has to bring hostage negotiations together, land a plane and the emotional weight of knowing his girlfriend is at risk. All of this ensures a pulsating thriller, which is definitely recommended after this weekend on the left, right and center.
Percy Jackson - Disney Plus
While this adaptation of Rick Riordan's beloved children's books, released in 2010, doesn’t stay too faithful to the original text, the mythical adventure is the perfect film to see with your family. Percy Jackson of the same name is enrolled in Camp Halfblood for the summer, a place where the children of the gods meet. That's right, Percy Jackson is the son of Poseidon himself, only he doesn't know that yet. What follows is a heartwarming journey to find his father and return the flash stolen from Zeus. He just has to avoid terrible Greek gods on the way. Be sure to catch Percy Jackson on Disney Plus, pending her upcoming series customization.

Pain and fame (Mubi)
Antonio Banderas in pain and fame
Pedro Almodóvar's 21st feature film Pain and Glory is played by Antonio Banderas, who was named best actor at the Cannes Film Festival as director Salvador Mallo. The film is a stylized summary of the life and work of the famous Almodóvar and unites different actors with whom he has worked over the years. It is full of life, deeply moving and often funny. Catch it on Mubi as long as you can, as films are only available on the carefully curated platform for 30 days.
The men staring at goats - Amazon Prime
With an all-star cast (George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges) and based on a book by Jon Ronson, the men who stare at goats should be an ultimately successful formula. And while this film about an investigation into how the U.S. military tried to use psychic powers as a weapon may have this formula for success, it sometimes lags behind the mark. Still, it's worth seeing Clooney's appearance torn straight out of a Coen Brothers movie.
