Next level movies arrive On Demand


Queen and Slim
Starts March 3
Rated R
NBCUniversal

This one may be one of those great movies (92% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes and 82% Critic Score!) that didn’t end up on your radar. Described and stylish, provocative, and powerful, Queen & Slim is a modern fugitive story. Don’t think Bonnie and Clyde—its modern ripped-from-the-headlines-style thriller that follows what happens to a couple after a routine traffic stop escalates.


Bombshell
Starts March 10
Rated R
Lionsgate

This film focuses on Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson and their allegations against Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. As you may remember, when the reports hit the it was HUGE. The efforts of the all-star cast were met with positive reviews and both Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie were nominated for Oscars for their portrayals. It’s a riveting and entertaining watch.


Spies in Disguise
Starts March 10
Rated PG
Fox

Will Smith voices suave super-spy Lance Sterling, who is partnered with scientist Walter Becket, played by Tom Holland (of Spiderman fame). The mission requires Lance to transform into the most unlikely and ubiquitous of animals: a pigeon. Together they save the world in this cute, bright, and funny movie perfect for the whole family.


Jumanji: The Next Level
Starts March 17
Rated PG-13
Sony

Set three years after their first Jumanji adventure, the group gets together for a reunion at Spencer’s house. The group—plus Spencer’s grandfather, Eddie (Danny DeVito), and Eddie’s friend Milo (Danny Glover)—get sucked back into the game Spencer had held onto. Despite returning, nothing is quite as they expect (but you can expect to have a great time watching!).


1917
Starts March 24
Rated R
NBCUniversal

Oscar winner alert! This movie won three Oscar awards (out of the 10 nominations it received). This hard-hitting, immersive movie follows two young British soldiers who are sent on a seemingly impossible mission. It was filmed to appear like one continuous shot which just adds to the drama and realism.


Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
Starts March 31
Rated PG-13
Disney

Do we really need to say much more? This is the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga and, if you’re a fan of the Star Wars universe, you’ll want to watch (or re-watch, as the case may be). Light sabers, the force, Jedi, Sith, epic battles—this J.J. Abrams-directed movie has it all!
