New Streaming Releases for the Week

As the last Wednesday of May arrives, the temperature is rising here where I write. But I am not here to give you a weather report; I am here to inform you about the new streaming releases. Specifically, 53 series, movies, and documentaries are being released from today until Sunday on Netflix, Max, Prime Video, Filmin, Movistar Plus+, Disney+, Atresplayer, and Apple TV+.

‘The Rise and Fall of MoviePass’

This original HBO documentary tells the story of MoviePass, the meteoric subscription service that offered access to cinema tickets for a modest monthly fee. However, following its great promotional offer in 2017, everything changed due to poor management and greed.

This thriller, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, narrates a father’s desperate search when his son disappears.
