Here’s a collection curated by The Associated Press’ entertainment journalists of what’s arriving on TV, streaming services and music platforms this week.
— After a bit of a hiatus from action films, Angelina Jolie is back in the thriller “Those Who Wish Me Dead” as a Montana smoke jumper who comes across a 12-year-old boy (Finn Little) on the run and in need of help. Director Taylor Sheridan, the Oscar-nominated writer of “Hell or High Water” and co-creator of the TV series “Yellowstone,” told the AP that the film was “very on-brand” for him and his proclivity for stories about vengeance and the American West. Available Friday on HBO Max for 31 days, “Those Who Wish Me Dead” co-stars Nicholas Hoult, Jon Bernthal and Tyler Perry.
— This week also sees the long-awaited release of director Joe Wright’s “The Woman in the Window” adaptation, starring Amy Adams as an agoraphobic psychologist who becomes obsessed with solving a crime she sees from her window. It’s a film that has everything going for it in terms of pedigree. Tracy Letts wrote the adaptation of A.J. Finn’s bestseller and it co-stars Gary Oldman, Brian Tyree Henry, Julianne Moore, Anthony Mackie and Jennifer Jason Leigh. But it’s also seen several setbacks, with delays due to bad test screenings, re-editing and the pandemic before the studio eventually sold it to Netflix, where it debuts Friday. Has it been salvaged? Will it be a disaster? Wright has had more triumphs than missteps over the years, so regardless it’s worth a shot and it won’t even cost the price of a movie ticket to try.
— Or over on Amazon Prime and Hulu starting Wednesday, you can catch up with “Saint Maud,” Rose Glass’s haunting debut about a pious nurse (Morfydd Clark) who has decided she must save the soul of one of her patients (Jennifer Ehle). I may have been a little less zealous about the film than many of my peers, but even so it’s an accomplished first film and there are some chilling images and visionary sequences that’ll stick with you long after.
