This weekend, streaming giants like Netflix, Prime Video, and more are dropping a buffet of new movies and TV shows, offering everything from spine-tingling thrillers to laugh-out-loud comedies, ensuring couch potatoes won't be left wanting.

Here's the list of movies and TV shows to check out this weekend:

Leading the pack on Netflix is 'Fool Me Once', an adaptation of Harlan Coben's novel featuring Michelle Keegan as a widowed single mother whose world is rocked when her supposedly deceased husband, played by Richard Armitage, makes a ghostly comeback, promising twists at every turn.

Over on Prime Video, 'Foe' tosses viewers into a sci-fi whirlwind with Paul Mescal and Saoirse Ronan grappling with a fate that's part space mission, part robot companion, echoing vibes that Black Mirror fans would nod approvingly at.

Netflix throws a curveball with 'Good Grief', a comedy-drama directed by and starring Dan Levy of "Schitt's Creek" fame, alongside Luke Evans and Ruth Negga, capturing the journey of a man turning the page on grief in the streets of Paris.

Not letting up, Netflix also rolls out 'The Brothers Sun', a dark comedy-action series that jets between Taiwan and Los Angeles, with Michelle Yeoh and Justin Chien diving into a world of gangsters and family ties strained by an assassination.

For those craving something gripping yet real, 'Society of the Snow' hits hard, a Spanish survival drama by J.A. Bayona that recounts the harrowing 1972 Andes plane crash, earning Spain's nod for the 2023 Oscars.

If a step back in time is what you're after, 'Time Bomb Y2K' on Max serves up a nostalgic yet eye-opening documentary, revisiting the millennium bug panic with a mix of archival footage and a look at the digital revolution's broader implications.

And for those who can't resist the allure of Hollywood glam, the 81st Golden Globes streams on Paramount Plus, ready to be the perfect end to a weekend binge, showcasing the glitz and glamour that only a night of awards can bring.
