Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg find some Me Time in new trailer

Everyone makes sacrifices when they start a family. Ideally, we’re supposed to become fully realized adults who put the needs of our children ahead of our own while preparing them for the world. But in the first trailer for Netflix‘s Me Time, Kevin Hart‘s Sonny has taken it to an extreme. This stay-at-home Mr. Mom is so devoted to his kids and his family that he’s lost touch with who he was before. But that’s about to change when Sonny reunites with his best friend, Huck, played by Mark Wahlberg.

It’s plain to see in the trailer that Huck really loves Sonny as a friend, and that the feeling is mutual. The comedy comes in the form of Huck’s wild weekend plans that often veer toward incredibly dangerous stunts and locations. When Sonny comes out on top during a fight with a bobcat, he fully embraces Huck’s idea of a good time. Unfortunately for Sonny, the getaway to the desert was only the beginning of the wildest weekend of his life.

Here’s the official description courtesy of Netflix:

“When a stay-at-home dad finds himself with some ‘me time’ for the first time in years while his wife and kids are away, he reconnects with his former best friend for a wild weekend that nearly upends his life.”

Regina Hall also stars in the film as Sonny’s wife, Maya, with Jimmy O. Yang as Stan, and Luis Gerardo Méndez as Armando.

John Hamburg wrote and directed Me Time after previously collaborating with Hart on Night School. Netflix will officially premiere Me Time on August 26.

Watch Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg try to out-dad each other in Daddy’s Home trailer
sherlock holmes will ferrell comedy

Father's Day weekend marked the release of the first trailer for Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell's upcoming comedy, Daddy's Home. Directed by Sean Anders and John Morris (Horrible Bosses 2, We're the Millers, Dumb and Dumber To, etc.), the movie follows the ridiculous hijinks that ensue after a somewhat absentee father (Wahlberg) returns home to give his kids' devoted stepdad (Ferrell) a run for his money in the daddy department.

The two father figures couldn't be more different, with Ferrell's character being the suit-wearing Scout troop leader and Wahlberg's the leather jacket-clad motorcyclist. Friction forms between the men even before the kids' dad rolls into town, but it quickly becomes a problem. As each tries to prove that he's the number one guy in their kids' lives, an out-of-control dad battle begins. Gestures like bringing home a mangy dog are topped with a new pony, a treehouse started by one is finished by the other, and at least one wall is destroyed when Ferrell's character flies through it. The trailer has several laugh out loud moments and gives us a good look at the dynamic between the two hilarious actors.

Where to watch Magic Mike’s Last Dance
Channing Tatum and Salma Hayek stand in a theatre lobby together in Magic Mike's Last Dance.

In 2012, the world of male stripping took center stage in Magic Mike. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, Magic Mike stars Channing Tatum as Mike Lane, an aspiring entrepreneur who works odd jobs as a handyman during the day. At night, Mike comes alive as a male stripper, wowing the club with his innate charm and attractive dance moves. With a budget of $7 million, Magic Mike became an instant hit, grossing over $167 million worldwide. The film spawned a 2015 sequel, Magic Mike XXL, which also became a box-office success, grossing $122 million against a $12 million budget.

To complete the trilogy, Tatum graced the stage as Mike Lane one final time in Magic Mike's Last Dance. Originally supposed to be released exclusively to streaming, Warner Bros. opted to give the third film a theatrical release in February 2023. While the film struggled in theaters (it only grossed $57 million), Magic Mike's Last Dance will now get the chance to find another audience on streaming.

The Digital Trends guide to FAST streaming services
Amazon Freevee.

When you talk about the best streaming services, you typically talk about video-on-demand (VOD) services like Netflix. Or Disney+. Or Amazon Prime Video. Or Hulu. And for good reason — they have a ton of paying subscribers. Netflix alone is closing in on a quarter-billion. Disney+ is about halfway there.

And while the numbers drop off a good bit from there, another flavor of streaming should constitute a good bit of the discussion. FAST services — that's the industry acronym for free advertising-based streaming television — continue to grow both in numbers and in popularity. Think of FAST like the streaming version of broadcast TV, or your cable box. Shows are on at the same time for everyone, and everyone is watching the same thing, with ads. Only unlike YouTube TV or Hulu With Live TV, you don't have to pay anything upfront. It's all supported by advertising — you just don't get the "good" channels like you will on the paid services.
