Jim Gaffigan: The Pale Tourist – As part of his hour-long comedy specials, Jim Gaffigan boldly goes where no stand-up comedian has gone before: everywhere. Gaffigan traveled the globe as part of his The Pale Tourist worldwide tour, meeting people in each country, eating the food, and learning a bit about the history. He then transformed those experiences into a stand-up set of all-new material and performed it for locals and expatriates, before heading on to another destination and doing it all over again. Available July 24 on Prime Video.
The Kissing Booth 2 – Elle Evans (Joey King) is in her senior year of high school, having just seen her boyfriend Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi) off to Harvard. While she juggles a long-distance relationship and worries about getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee (Joel Courtney), complications are brought on when she becomes friends with a new student named Marco. Available July 24 on Netflix.
Rogue Trip – ABC News reporter Bob Woodruff was a war correspondent in Iraq before he was seriously injured by a roadside bomb. Now, more than a decade later, he’s on a journey with his 28-year-old son Mack to showcase the more positive, lesser-known places in some of the world’s most troubled regions. Available July 24 on Disney+.
The Rental – Two couples (Dan Stevens, Alison Brie, Jeremy Allen White, Sheila Vand) rent a house on the ocean for a weekend getaway. However, they get a weird vibe from their host, Taylor. When they find a hidden camera in the bathroom, they decide the vacation is over and make plans to leave the next morning. That night, a series of incidents lead to something far more sinister, as well-kept secrets are exposed. The four come to see each other in a whole new light. Available July 24 on VOD.
Portrait of a Lady on Fire – In 1760 France, Marianne is commissioned to paint the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young woman who has just left the convent. Because she is a reluctant bride-to-be, Marianne arrives under the guise of companionship, observing Héloïse by day and secretly painting her by firelight at night. As the two women orbit one another, intimacy and attraction grow as they share Héloïse’s first moments of freedom. The portrait soon becomes a collaborative act of and testament to their love.
