It's Friday, and while there are plenty of other things to spend the next few days doing — after all, it takes a lot of time and effort to make sure that October is as spooky and scary as possible — you might as well take this weekend to check out these must-see new movies and TV shows. And really, with A Star Is Born finally arriving in theaters, so why put anything on your schedule other than brunch and a movie or TV marathon?
With some of the most anticipated films of the year being released, as well as a packed Netflix schedule of new TV shows and Halloween-appropriate scares, it's worth putting all of your other favorite fall activities on hold in order to truly enjoy the feeling of relaxing in front of the screen. Big or small, there's something for everyone to enjoy — and besides, there will be plenty of apples to pick and leaves to peep later in the season. In addition to Lady Gaga's movie-star turn and Tom Hardy's scary-fun superhero film,Venom, in theaters, Netflix is offering up everything from a brand new Gossip Girl murder thriller to a second season of the hilariously awkward, puberty comedy Big Mouth, for all of your cuddling up by the fireplace needs.
Let's take a look at everything you should check out this weekend, both on the silver and the small screens. Just make sure to bring your own candy corn:
