Shows to Stream 

Gossip Girl

A little over a decade ago, Gossip Girl made its debut as the latest cool teen drama. While the original show and its devious and ostentatious shows of wealth have ended, make way for a new show that’s going to take its place–the Gossip Girl reboot, which is a new HBO series. Set in modern day, Gossip Girl is now an Instagram account that posts about the lives of wealthy Upper East Sider high schoolers. While we know that there are many major changes to the show, such as the presence of social media, influencers, and an increase in diversity, a lot of our favorite things will be staying the same. Namely, the voice of Gossip Girl is still the iconic Kristen Bell. Catch this reboot now on HBO Max starting July 8th!

Movies to Stream 

No Sudden Move

It’s 1954 and the auto race in Detroit is in full force. A group of criminals are hired to steal a document by a mysterious man, and after their heist goes wrong, they must find out who hired them and why they were hired. The film deals not only with the implications of a failed heist, it also engages with issues of race and class. Make sure to watch the worldwide premiere of this new movie on HBO onJuly 1st!

Space Jam: A New Legacy 

Legendary basketball player LeBron James and his son Dom are trapped in a digital landscape. They must get home safely and can only do so with the help of the Looney Tunes gang, including Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. At the end, James must play a game of basketball against an AI team in order to escape. Check out Space Jam: A New Legacy on July 16th on HBO!

Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah is a biographical drama about Fred Hampton (played by Daniel Kaluuya), the chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party, and William O’Neal (played by Lakeith Stanfield), an FBI informant. After being arrested for attempting to steal a car, O’Neal is told his charges will be dropped if he infiltrates the Illinois Black Panther Party. Over time, O’Neal develops a friendship with Hampton, which ultimately leads to betrayal. For their performances, Kaluuya and Stanfield were both nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, which Kaluuya eventually won!

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

One of the most famous slasher movies ever is now on HBO. Beware, Texas Chainsaw Massacre is as horrifying and violent as it sounds. The film follows a group of friends who come into contact with cannibals at a farmhouse and have to fight to survive. One of the antagonists, Leatherface, is one of the most iconic killers in movie history. The film is also known for its disturbing nature and for changing the trajectory of horror movies in America. Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the scariest movies of all time, so if you’re prepared for nightmares, give it a watch!


HBO is on a roll with its horror movie selection this July. Scream is an ultra popular slasher horror film about a masked knife killer who haunts the roads of a quiet suburban town. This film revitalized the horror genre through its satirization of other horror movies and comedic elements. Check it out starting July 1st on HBO
