Three films, not five. We can already announce a lot this week in our weekly preview. Sadly, no titles from Disney+ and only 1 movie from HBO Max. We also have two films appearing on Netflix. In short: a somewhat mediocre week.
Besides, this is the first time in 42 weeks that we can’t give 5 tips. Probably better next week!
