Want to know what’s coming soon to digital and what to watch right now on FandangoNOW? Here is your weekly guide to the latest releases:
What are the latest new releases to watch right now?
Yes, God, Yes stars Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things) as a Catholic schoolgirl discovering the many temptations of the internet in the early 2000s. The acclaimed coming-of-age dramedy, now available to rent or buy digitally, marks the directorial debut of screenwriter Karen Maine (Obvious Child).
Following its successful Home Premiere release, You Should Have Left is also now available to buy or rent. The thriller, which involves a sinister force haunting a vacation home, reunites writer-director David Koepp with his Stir of Echoes star, Kevin Bacon, and also features Amanda Seyfried.
Deep Blue Sea 3 is the second sequel to the 1999 cult classic about sharks with enhanced intelligence and is available digitally only for purchase at this time. The new installment stars Tania Raymonde (Lost) as an environmentalist whose peaceful conservatory is attacked by killer bull sharks.
What movies are great to pair with those new releases?
I obviously recommend watching Obvious Child alongside Yes, God, Yes, and Stir of Echoes makes for a good Koepp/Bacon double feature with You Should Have Left. Your best deal, though, is to pick up the entire Deep Blue Sea trilogy, now packaged as a three-film collection available to buy for less than $25.
Are there any other big movies coming out this week?
The Fight, which won a special jury award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, arrives on digital this Friday, July 30. The acclaimed documentary, from the directors behind Weiner, follows recent legal battles between the American Civil Liberties Union and the U.S. government.
