This Month’s Highlights

Available June 30

If you want to float too: It

The biggest horror movie of 2017, director Andy Muschietti’s take on Stephen King’s classic horror novel was a runaway hit thanks to its a moody vibe, heavy ‘80s nostalgia, and a terrifying Pennywise played by Bill Skarsgård. The story of a group of friends who run afoul of a shapeshifting being that torments them with their greatest fears, It is also only an adaptation of the first half of King’s novel: It: Chapter Two, starring the adult versions of this cast of unfortunate kids, is coming next year. Available June 30.

If you love moody, thoughtful sci-fi: Blade Runner 2049

Commercially speaking, Blade Runner 2049 was a failure. Creatively, however, Denis Villeneuve’s sequel is a rousing success, a film that’s as challenging and confounding as Blade Runner was when it was first released in 1982. Gorgeous, meandering, and contemplative, Blade Runner 2049 follows Ryan Gosling’s K, a synthetic human replicant who, like most all replicants, is enslaved. Unlike most of his kind, K is a Blade Runner tasked with hunting down and killing rogue replicants, and in the course of his work, finds something that will upend the entire order of the world. 2049 is a sequel that takes the themes and questions posed by Blade Runner and asks: What next?

Because Tom Cruise isn’t just an action star: American Made

As one of Hollywood’s foremost action stars, it’s surprising how rarely Tom Cruise is asked to exert more than just a nominal level of charisma. And that’s too bad, because he’s really good at it. Playing the real-life Barry Seal, Cruise sports a Louisiana accent (!) as a commercial airline pilot who’s thrust into a smuggler’s life by a CIA agent and quickly learns how to play both sides of the law. It’s been a while since Cruise has taken on a role like this, and it’ll likely be a while before he does again, but starting this month you can stream American Made to your heart’s content. Available June 9.
