When a brand new Marvel movie is released in theaters, it tends to suck up all the oxygen of the week. But while Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is worth watching, there is still plenty of room for even more gripping movies and television. Big shows like The crown and Mythical quest return to their respective streaming services, while A24’s incredibly moving film Nason expands to more theaters this weekend. Here are the rest of our picks for this weekend’s watch list.

Soft and melancholy, Nason is the beautiful directorial debut of Charlotte Wells. The film is about a young girl named Sophie (Frankie Corio) on vacation with her struggling father (played by Paul Mescal). the story swings between memory and old home footage as an older Sophie (Celia Rowlson Hall) recalls her thoughts about her father. Wells’ sweet flick may not be as attention-grabbing as other A24 outings in recent years, but it packs an emotional punch.

A few years after the death of Chadwick Boseman, it’s time to return to Wakanda, where Shuri, Nakia, Queen Ramonda, Okoye and the rest of the fictional country are mourning the loss of their leader, T’Challa. Ryan Coogler has a tough job here: toeing the line between a heartfelt memoriam and an action-packed Marvel movie. We trust that he can do it.

After a short theatrical run earlier this year, Fire of Love hit Disney+. The documentary, an award-winning entry at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, recreates the story, footage and work of scientists Maurice and Katia Krafft, who died because of what they spent their lives studying: volcanoes. More than just a tragic story, it is also a love story worth watching

It’s Elizabeth Debicki’s turn! Debicki takes over as Princess Diana from Emma Corrin, joining season five of the crown, alongside Dominic West as Prince Charles, as the series tackles the pair’s difficult, sometimes scandalous marriage. The series is anything but diving into the sensationalism of the Charles and Diana saga, but don’t worry – Imelda Staunton’s Queen Elizabeth II and Jonathan Pryce’s Prince Philip bring plenty of intrigue of their own, too.

Available to stream on Netflix

Amazon is shifting its focus from Middle-earth to the Wild West. Set in 1800s America, The English follows Emily Blunt’s Lady Cornelia Locke, a noblewoman hell-bent on revenge after the death of her son. Joining Blunt is Chaske Spencer as Eli Whipp, a former Pawnee scout and Locke’s new partner in crime, in this brutal new series from Prime Video.

Mythical quest: still good! And luckily, Apple TV+ debuts the first three episodes of its third season this weekend. The workplace comedy is full of changes this year, as Ian and Poppy (Rob McElhenney and Charlotte Nicdao) leave Mythic Quest for GrimPop Studios to try and build their own new game.
