This weekend there are a host of new releases available across all of your favourite streaming services. I’ve picked out some of this weekend’s highlights including an emotional comedy-drama starring Kevin Hart, as well as the latest summer blockbuster release from Pixar.
Fatherhood stars Kevin Hart as Matthew Logelin, a recently widowed father whom struggles to raise his daughter after the unexpected death of his wife. The film is based on a true story, but I’m particularly fascinated with seeing how Kevin Hart gets on in a more serious role. He’s well known for his comedy, but Fatherhood’s poignant nature means we can expect a much more mature performance from him than we are used to seeing.

Luca is the latest computer-animated film produced by Pixar Animation Studios. Luca is set in a stunning seaside town on the Italian Riviera and is a coming-of-age story about a 13-year-old sea monster curious about the world above the sea. Pixar rarely disappoint and from the trailers, Luca looks brilliant; I can’t wait to give this one a watch.

Chivas: El Rebaño Sagrado is a four-part docuseries chronicling an unforgettable season with Mexico’s homegrown football club, the Chivas of Guadalajara.
