Coming Soon Trailers: Kin, Searching, Operation Finale.
Summer’s last hurrah features revenge, missing persons, and a science fiction family drama.
While I can’t say I’ve been thrilled with the quality of August’s offerings, the diversity has been refreshing. From giant sharks to puppets, BlacKkKlansmen to Crazy Rich Asians, the final month of summer has had a lot of variety to choose from. It continues as we head into the Labor Day Weekend. We have a historic espionage drama about the hunt for Hitler’s right hand man, a father using technology to search for his missing daughter, and a multi-racial family struggling with urban crime and alien technology. Not your average weekend.
If you want to spend the long weekend at home, there are 11 new rental offerings hitting the streaming market market.
