HIGHLIGHTS



Hanna: Season 2 (2020) 93%


Description: In season 2, Hanna is drawn out of hiding when her only friend, Clara, is recaptured by the Utrax organization and taken to a new facility, The Meadows. To rescue Clara, Hanna needs the help of her previous nemesis, troubled CIA agent Marissa Wiegler, who begins to see Hanna as the daughter she never had.

Premiere Date: July 3



Vivarium (2020) 72%


Description: Tom and Gemma (Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots) are looking for the perfect home. When a strange real-estate agent takes them to Yonder, a mysterious suburban neighborhood of identical houses, Tom and Gemma can’t leave quick enough. But when they try to exit the labyrinth-like housing development, each road takes them back to where they started. Soon, they realize their search for a dream home has plunged them into a terrifying nightmare, in this taut thriller filled with white-knuckle suspense.

Critics Consensus: Vivarium may confound almost as often as it intrigues, but this well-acted sci-fi/horror hybrid has interesting ideas — and explores them with style.

Premiere Date: July 11



The Weekend (2018) 87%


Description: Stand-up comedian Zadie (Sasheer Zamata) is still reeling from her last breakup three years ago, but is trying to stay friends with her ex-boyfriend Bradford (Tone Bell). She invites him on a weekend trip to her judgmental mother Karen’s (Kym Whitley) country B&B and he brings his new girlfriend Margo (DeWanda Wise) along with them. Their awkward love triangle gets complicated by the arrival of handsome and newly single guest Aubrey (Y’lan Noel).

Premiere Date: July 15



Radioactive (2019) 62%


Description: 

Critics Consensus: Radioactive’s flawed script and counterproductive storytelling choices are offset by Rosamund Pike’s central performance in a sincere tribute to a brilliant scientific mind.

Premiere Date: July 24


Jim Gaffigan: The Pale Tourist

()


Description: In The Pale Tourist, Gaffigan boldly goes where no stand-up comedian has gone before: everywhere. The two hour-long specials were filmed as part of Gaffigan’s The Pale Tourist worldwide tour, in which he traveled the world — in each country meeting people, eating the food, and learning a bit about the history. He would then transform those experiences into a stand-up set of all-new material and perform it for locals and expatriates, before heading on to another destination and doing it all over again.

Premiere Date: July 24
