Black WidowThis highly anticipated Marvel film follows Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Natasha, who is now on the run for helping Steve Rogers escape the government, finds herself torn up by her past mistakes and previous life as a KGB spy. When her former bosses come looking for her to take her back home, Natasha decides to stop running, and she faces her past, revisits old relationships, including with her sister (Florence Pugh) and fights for her life against a new masked villain. Catch Black Widow in theaters or on Disney+ with Premier Access July 9.

Virgin River – Season 3: After the season two finale that left viewers on the edge of their seats with Jack’s (Martin Henderson) fate and Doc’s (Tim Matheson) health unknown, Virgin River is returning with a third season. This time, the folks of Virgin River will experience some firsts — including a funeral, a fire, a divorce, a hurricane, and a new romance. The trailer also teases some tension between Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Jack as they reach a moment of reckoning in their relationship when pressure mounts to have a baby. Debuts on Netflix July 9.

Defending JacobBased on the novel of the same name, District Attorney Andy Barber (Chris Evans) and Laurie Barber (Michelle Dockery) live a quiet life in a small town with their adolescent son, Jacob (Jaeden Martell). One day, a classmate of Jacob’s is found dead in the woods and police tell Andy that the print they lifted from the victim belongs to his son. Jacob vehemently denies being involved in the crime, but that doesn’t stop the police from arresting him and charging him with murder. As the entire family’s fate is thrown into chaos, secrets emerge and Jacob’s parents begin to wonder if he is truly innocent. If you’ve yet to catch this thrilling series on Apple TV+, it will be coming to DVD/Blu-ray tomorrow (July 6).

Cat People: In this docuseries from Glen Zipper, we get six episodes devoted to cats and the people who love them. From a rapper whose love for cats inspired him to share his feelings for felines in his songs, to a surfing cat and a Japanese artist who creates lifelike cat portraits out of wool, to a couple who care for feral cats in Greece and then find homes for them all over the world, this series takes a look at a myriad of cat lovers and their adorable felines.
