This Week In Streaming is a weekly blog and video series that’s your one-stop-shop for learning about all the new shows and movies coming to streaming services this week. Whether it’s Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Amazon Prime, Apple TV+ or HBO Max, we’re going to talk about it. Today is June 18th, here’s what’s new.
New episodes of Loki are now streaming on Disney+. Created by Michael Waldron (who’s also a producer on Rick and Morty), Loki follows the classic Marvel villain as he interacts with a bureaucratic organization called the Time Variance Authority.
The show takes place after the tesseract is stolen in Avengers: Endgame, and stars folks like Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson. If you’re into Marvel, this is definitely a show to check out.
There are four more episodes in Loki season one, and the show is already greenlit for a season two. Until then, you can watch the first two episodes now on Disney+.
The movie Fatherhood just dropped on Netflix today. Fatherhood follows a father who has to raise his baby daughter as a single dad after the unexpected death of his wife.
The film is directed by Paul Weitz (who also co-directed About a Boy) and stars folks like Kevin Hart, Anthony Carrigan, and Lil Rel Howery. If you’re looking for a father’s day flick, check this movie out.
In very important news, Paddington has finally come to streaming. This critically acclaimed 2014 family-comedy movie follows Paddington bear as he moves from his home in Peru to London.
The cast is absolutely stacked and stars folks like Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Julie Waters, Ben Whishaw, and Nicole Kidman.
This movie is legitimately incredible and so heartwarming. If you want to watch a feel good movie about concepts like family and home and colonialism, please check out Paddington. You can watch it for free today on either Peacock or IMDBtv. Or, both, I guess.
Before we go, let’s check in with what the most-saved movie and TV show was on Likewise last week. The most saved TV show was the aforementioned Loki and the most saved movie was Cruella, same as last week. You can watch both on Disney+.
