It's been an excellent week for big screen entertainment news.

There's plenty more to watch elsewhere, too, and below, we've rounded up seven of the best new movies and TV shows available to stream on Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, and more this weekend.

Black Adam (HBO Max)

Thank the gods! Released in theaters around the world less than two months ago, Black Adam is now available to stream on HBO Max in the United States.

This superhero film starring Dwayne Johnson follows the titular Teth-Adam, a centenarian Kahndaq native with godlike powers who, after escaping from prison, battles with the modern justice society: Hawkman (Aldis Hodge), Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo) and Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell).

Suffice to say, Black Adam isn't one of the best superhero movies ever made, but watching The Rock launch military planes to the ground never gets old. UK viewers can stream the film via video-on-demand services like Prime Video.

Now available to stream on HBO Max.

The Banshees of Inisherin (HBO Max)

Another US exclusive movie premiering on HBO Max this weekend is The Banshees of Inisherin, which hit theaters around the same time as Black Adam.

In Bruges, duo Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson reunite for the fifth feature from director Martin McDonagh, which follows one man's quest to understand why his best friend suddenly ended their longstanding friendship on the island.

Inisherin's Banshees garnered near-universal acclaim for its unusual mix of comedy and tragedy when it opened in October, and the film has been touted as a strong contender for next year's Best Picture Oscar. As mentioned, this one is only available in the US right now, but UK viewers will be able to stream The Banshees of Inisherin on Disney Plus starting December 21st.

Now available to stream on HBO Max.

1923 (Paramount Plus)

Almost exactly one year after the debut of its previous prequel, 1883, Yellowstone's next follow-up series, 1923, begins airing on Paramount Plus starting Sunday.

This latest installment in showrunner Taylor Sheridan's popular Western universe stars Harrison Ford (in his first television regular role), Helen Mirren, James Badge Dale, Darren Mann and Michelle Randolph as Dutton's new characters, and follows Dutton's attempts to the family navigate Prohibition and the Great Depression in – you guessed it! – 1923 Montana.

Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and Timothy Dalton (the James Bond series) also appear in the 1923 eight-episode first season, so Paramount Plus might have a real gem on their hands here.

Available to stream on Paramount Plus starting Sunday.

Bardo, false chronicle of a handful of truths (Netflix)

Oscar-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu returns with his first feature film project since 2015's The Revenant with Bardo, a false chronicle of a handful of truths on Netflix.

This Spanish-language drama set in Mexico centers on a Mexican journalist, Silverio (Daniel Giménez Cacho), who experiences an existential crisis after returning from Los Angeles after winning a prestigious documentary award.

Sure, this synopsis makes Bardo feel a bit clunky, and the film's hefty 150-minute running time doesn't help in that regard either, but history has taught us that Iñárritu's stories are almost always worth watching. Could this make it to our list of the best Netflix movies?

Now available to stream on Netflix.
