6 new streaming movies and TV shows you can watch in Australia this weekend

With so many shows and movies to choose from on Australia's major streaming services, it can often be difficult to find the best new stuff to entertain yourself with each end of week. 

In an effort to make things easier, we've hand-picked the best new shows and movies to watch on Aussie streaming platforms this weekend, covering the likes of Netflix, Disney Plus, Binge, Foxtel Now, Stan, Apple TV Plus and Amazon Prime Video. 

Below, you'll find a list of new highlights, with binge-worthy TV shows sitting alongside some great big-budget movie arrivals – and a couple of oddball left-of-field entries, just for some variety.

The weekend brings some hitters to Australia's streaming scene, including the premiere of Moon Knight on Disney Plus, more Halo on Paramount Plus, the Judd Apatow comedy The Bubble on Netflix, and The Girl From Plainville on Stan. Here are our streaming picks for the weekend of April 1-3, 2022.

Moon Knight

(TV series – episode 1 available now)

Disney's first live-action Marvel series featuring a new character has finally arrived with Moon Knight, the story of a man (Oscar Isaac) with a sleeping disorder who routinely blacks out, only to find himself in crazy situations. Turns out, the man has dissociative identity disorder, and one of his other personalities is the violent vigilante Moon Knight.

(TV series – episode 2 available now)

The long journey to a (proper) live-action Halo adaptation has finally paid off with this big-budget series from producer Steven Spielberg. In the last episode, Master Chief (Pablo Schreiber) and the girl he rescued (Yerin Ha) find themselves on the run from the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) after he refused an order to terminate her.

Stream Halo on Paramount Plus (or via Amazon Prime Video channels)

The Bubble

(Movie – available 1/4/2022)

Writer-director Judd Apatow (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up) takes a meta-approach for his latest comedy, about a big budget film production which goes into lockdown while shooting on location. Expect moderate laughs and long running time. Stars David Duchovny, Karen Gillan, Iris Apatow, Keegan-Michael Key and Fred Armisen.

The Girl From Plainville

(Limited series – available now)

Hollywood is back with another miniseries that re-enacts a recent true crime story with The Girl From Plainville, starring Elle Fanning in a transformative role. Based on the case of Michelle Carter (Fanning), who convinced a young man to commit suicide over text. Sounds like heavy viewing.

Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty

(TV series – episode 4 available now)

Writer/director Adam McKay (Don't Look Up, Anchorman) returns with a fantastic new series which details how basketball became one of the most glamorous and successful sports of all time. Set in the late '70s, Winning Time follows Jerry Buss (John C. Reilly), a man who saw the potential of basketball as not just a sport, but as entertainment. His first call of business: putting every dollar he has into buying the Los Angeles Lakers. His second? Drafting a star like Earvin 'Magic' Johnson (Quincy Isaiah) to make the NBA explode in popularity. Episode 4 sees the team struggle under tough (but unproven) new coach Jack McKinney (Tracy Letts).

Slow Horses

(TV series – available 1/4/2022)

Apple's latest series boasts an incredible cast in Gary Oldman, Olivia Cooke, Jonathan Pryce and Kristin Scott Thomas, making it an immediate must-see show before we've even explained the premise. Thankfully, the plot, which follows a team of MI5 screw-ups who attempt to redeem themselves by stopping the execution of a journalist, sounds pretty great, too.
