New Movies + Shows to Watch this Weekend: ‘Titans’ + Evangelion + More

Why is summer nearing its end? Back-to-school commercials have invaded the ad space and already some kids have returned to the classrooms. Can’t we bask in the lazy heat of summer just a little longer? It seems like the streaming services are on our side, because this Friday they have offered up some quite impressive morsels for us to indulge upon while we desperately cling onto the summer season for a little while longer.

Titans season 3 – HBO Max

The third installment of the DC show sees the titans travel to Gotham City and encounter a whole host of new faces, including Barbara Gordon (Savannah Welch), Starfire’s sister Blackfire (Damaris Lewis), and the Scarecrow (Vincent Kartheiser). Season 3 will also see the transformation of Curran Walters’ Jason Todd from Robin into Red Hood, and we’ll see more of Brenton Thwaites’ Nightwing in action after his transformation in the season 2 finale.

Modern Love season 2 – Amazon 

Modern Love is based on the New York Times column of the same name and the anthology series recounts different love stories that take place in the Big Apple. Season 1 had a star-studded cast and season 2 is no different – look out for famous faces like Kit Harington, Dominique Fishback, Tobias Menzies, Anna Paquin, and Jack Reynor. With eight half-hour episodes, it’s the perfect binge-watch.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch: Season Finale *Disney+ Original

The season finale of Star Wars: The Bad Batch, “Kamino Lost,” hit Disney+ on Friday, and it’s got all the undersea drama of a James Cameron epic. We’ve now spent 16 episodes with this cast—not counting their introduction in The Clone Wars—and the finale rounds out what is surely the best inaugural season of any animated Star Wars show.

Jurassic Park – HBO Max

While we wait for Jurassic World 3 to hit the big screen next year, why not take it back to where it all started with Jurassic Park. Steven Spielberg’s 1993 movie introduces us to the doomed theme park full of dinosaurs and features a stellar cast, including Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Richard Attenborough. The movie’s two sequels are also on HBO Max if you fancy a movie marathon.

CODA – Apple TV+

Gifted with a voice that her parents can’t hear, seventeen-year-old Ruby (Emilia Jones), is the sole hearing member of a deaf family—a CODA, Child of Deaf Adults. Her life revolves around acting as interpreter for her parents (Marlee Matlin, Troy Kotsur) and working on the family’s struggling fishing boat every day before school with her father and older brother (Daniel Durant). But when Ruby joins her high school’s choir club, she discovers a gift for singing and finds herself drawn to her duet partner Miles (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo). Encouraged by her enthusiastic, tough-love choirmaster (Eugenio Derbez) to apply to a prestigious music school, Ruby finds herself torn between the obligations she feels to her family and the pursuit of her own dreams.
