Deadly (HBO Max)
James Wan (The Conjuring, Saw) is returning this weekend with an original horror film. It is about a woman who dreams of murders committed by something or someone from her past – it does not appear extremely Innovative, but solid to some fear given the director’s track record. Side note: It’s a little odd that Malignant’s release didn’t have time to coincide with Halloween — but that’s probably because Dune is coming out at the end of October.
US viewers can watch it at home for 31 days on the HBO Max ad-free $14.99 monthly plan. Everyone else, including those who want to watch Malignant in the UK, will have to watch it on the big screen.

Wedding Scenes (HBO Max)
Oscar Isaacs and Jessica Chastain, who co-starred in the acclaimed 2014 oil-themed drama A Most Violent Year, reunite in this dazzling HBO adaptation of the milestone Ingmar Bergman mini-series.
watching a relationship deteriorate over time in a secluded place Courage Not for optimal pandemic look, but damn, what a cast – Corey Stoll and Nicole Behari co-star.
Hagai Levy, who worked on the Showtime series The Affair, directed all five episodes of One Wedding Scene. People in the US can catch it on HBO Max, while UK audiences will finally get to see it on Sky and Now this year – it doesn’t have a release date yet.
Airing this Sunday on HBO and then streaming on HBO Max
Series that asks ‘What if Lucifer runs a nightclub in Los Angeles?’ It finally comes to a conclusion this week after six seasons — and after a mid-run change of house, Netflix avoided cancellation. You get a total of 10 episodes this season, with episode 3 acting as an animated episode, which is something you only get if a popular show has been running for so long (see also: Scrubs and Buffy Music episodes).
This season you’ll see Lucifer (Tom Ellis) adjust to life with Chloe (Lauren German) after a brief hiatus. Hopefully, fans will enjoy getting closer to this often-outrageous DC Comics adaptation.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars in this action film about an assassin who is poisoned during a failed hit on a Jacobs boss and seeks revenge as she slowly dies. It sounds cheesy, but the trailer makes it fun — at least on the action side, where it might superficially remind you of John Wick.
While critics are not keen, however, several outlets pointed out that it is derivative and pretty anemic when it comes to the story. The set piece, however, has garnered praise. However, now that you have actual movies to go to the theater and watch, it probably feels a little less appealing than it used to be.
If you end up watching it, you have a helpful diversion from Woody Harrelson to look forward to.

Lullarich (Amazon Prime Video)
This documentary series is about the Lularo company, best known for its distribution of women’s leggings, until it was accused of having a pyramid scheme by the state of Washington. Sounds like fertile territory for a documentary series, doesn’t it?
LuLaRich is available on Amazon Prime Video in both the US and UK. Documentaries previously worked on Fair Fraud for Hulu, so if you enjoy that genre, it should make for comfortable viewing. There are four episodes in total.

Being James Bond (Apple TV)
Daniel Craig reflects on his 15 years playing James Bond in this 46-minute documentary, which is free to watch on the Apple TV app – no Apple TV Plus subscription required. In it, Craig collaborated with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson discussing his portrayal of the character, along with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the films.
And with No Time to Die now confirmed for release next month, it’s a good time to re-acquaint yourself with 007.

Doogie Kameloha, MD (Disney Plus)
The spiritual successor to the Neil Patrick Harris children’s series Doogie Hauser, MD has started rolling out on Disney Plus. Set in Hawaii, the show follows 16-year-old medical specialist Lahela Kameloha (Peyton Elizabeth Lee), who works with her mother at a local hospital.
How then do they justify the ‘doogie’ part of the title? Well, in this universe, the characters have seen the TV show Doogie Hauser – hence the nickname. weird, huh?
Still, it looks healthy enough, and not every major Disney Plus original is required to feature superheroes or bounty hunters (though we wouldn’t complain if they did). Jumanji director Jake Kasdan produced the first episode.
