New Movies and Shows to Stream This Weekend: Beckett, Modern Love Season 2 and The White Lotus season finale

Let’s get started with the most notable titles coming out this weekend. Netflix wants to take you on a wild, international chase this weekend through its new action-thriller film, Beckett. Amazon Prime Video, on the other hand, has plans to make you fall in love with love and all its complexities with season two of its anthology romantic comedy series, Modern Love. Hulu is also happy to entertain this weekend, providing subscribers the premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s final season this Friday. And lastly, HBO Max is making us say goodbye to the most cringe-worthy yet hysterical characters we have all come to know and love(ish) in the season finale of The White Lotus. And these options are just the beginning! Check out the rest of the hit movies and shows now available to stream below:

New on Netflix August 13: Beckett

John David Washington (Tenet) stars in Beckett, the nail-biting thriller film that is new on Netflix this weekend. In this crime-drama-action epic, Washington plays an American tourist vacationing in Greece with his girlfriend (Alicia Vikander) who becomes the subject of a manhunt when he accidentally uncovers a massive political conspiracy. With his girlfriend now missing and unrest mounting across the country, Beckett must find his missing love and make it to the U.S. Embassy to clear his name — before the Greek authorities take him down. Intense, action-packed and dramatic, Beckett is one of the top movies new on Netflix this month.

New on Amazon Prime Video August 13: Modern Love Season 2

The Amazon Prime-original romantic-comedy anthology series is back to help us fall in love, with season 2 new on Amazon Prime Video this weekend. For those unfamiliar, Modern Love explores just what the title suggests: love in modern day in all of its intricate, multifaceted and beautiful forms. And much like in the previous season, each episode of the sophomore installment tells a new story — all inspired by the The New York Times‘s popular “Modern Love” column. But that is where the similarities end, because a brand-new stacked cast including Kitt Harrington, Lucy Boynton, Minnie Driver and more are primed and ready to tell these new love stories. Check it all out in Modern Love.

New on HBO Max August 15: The White Lotus Season Finale

The hit miniseries The White Lotus is, unfortunately, coming to a close on HBO Max this weekend. This cringe-inducing satirical dramedy has followed wealthy vacationers living it up at the titular Hawaiian resort for six episodes. We have watched the travelers and employees alike fall prey to the dark, complex and sometimes hysterically horrific circumstances that plague the characters in this paradise. This last episode is sure to be as captivating and skin-crawling as its predecessors — maybe even more so — and we cannot wait to watch it all come to a close in The White Lotus season finale. But worry not, for The White Lotus is coming back for a second season, and we cannot wait to see what the next hotel location — and its residents — have in store.
