Weekend Watch: Tom and Jerry Are Back!

Spring is getting closer, but before you venture out, there are some intriguing new movies debuting this weekend on the top streaming services.

The new films coming from Friday to Sunday on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime, Hulu and Disney+ include:

*Tom & Jerry, another Warner Bros. film that will premiere on HBO Max and in theaters on the same day. The movie reunites the warring cat and mouse as they do battle in a big hotel prior to an important wedding. Chloe Grace Moretz also stars as the live action human playing to the proverbial green screen. (Note: The movie will be available in 4K HDR.)

* United States vs. Billie Holiday, a Hulu original film starring Andra Day as the legendary 1940s blues singer who became the high-profile target of a federal drug investigation. Rottentomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the film a score of 56 based on 45 reviews.

“Although The United States vs. Billie Holiday often falls shy of its subject’s transcendence, Andra Day’s performance offers brilliant compensation,” the site states.
