Netflix this week (May 24-30) plans to add 11 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including seven originals.
The new titles will include Space Force, a Netflix original comedy series starring Steve Carell as an Air Force general charged with starting a new military unit in outer space. (And if Carell as the star doesn’t sell you, the supporting cast includes John Malkovich, Lisa Kudrow and the late and great Fred Willard in his last role.)
Also notable this week: Uncut Gems (pictured above), a dramatic movie starring Adam Sandler as a jewelry store owner in New York whose addiction to living on the edge brings constant chaos and peril. The movie, which is directed by the Sadfie brothers, is reminiscent of an early Scorsese film, and it’s probably not a complete coincidence that Marty serves as an executive producer. Great movie from start to end.
