If you’re more inclined to watch artier, more grounded films, Netflix has a second high profile original film debuting on the platform today: Two Popes.
This coming Monday is the season (series?) finale of Watchmen - 100% one of the best TV shows of 2019.
If you’re watching The Mandalorian, know that there is an episode that debuts a few hours from now. But the next episode won’t be on Fri next week - it drops early. So, you can watch it from Wednesday - just hours before the Australian midnight release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
