Maya Hawke and Camila Mendes team up in Netflix’s Do Revenge

Maya Hawke and Camila Mendes have made their names playing teenagers on Stranger Things and Riverdale, respectively. So it’s only fitting that between seasons of their hit shows that Netflix has teamed up the actresses behind Robin Buckley and Veronica Lodge for a new dark comedy, Do Revenge. This time, they’re playing high school students who make a pact to get revenge on each other’s enemies in order to escape suspicion.

If that sounds like Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, it’s not a coincidence. The film fully embraces that comparison, with considerably fewer murders.

Unlike the theatrical Strangers on a Train or the novel that inspired it, neither Drea (Mendes) nor Eleanor (Hawke) is a murderous psychopath. They also seem to be fully engaged in helping each other get a little payback. As depicted in the trailer, Drea was once one of the most popular girls in her school until her “perfect” boyfriend betrayed her by sharing her topless pics with the entire student body. As for Eleanor, she is a young lesbian who was falsely accused of preying upon another girl at her school. With their own lives in shambles, Drea and Eleanor realize that they can achieve their retribution by working together.

Game of Thrones‘ Sophie Turner has a supporting role in the movie as well.

Thor: Love and Thunder co-writer Jennifer Kaytin Robinson is directing Do Revenge from a script she wrote with Celeste Ballard. Netflix will premiere Do Revenge on September 16.

The 50 best movies on Netflix right now (June 2023)
The cast of The Boss Baby.

For all of the money that Netflix spends on its original films, it's often the flicks on loan from other studios that tend to dominate the top spots on Netflix's top movie list. Case in point, at the time of this week's update, DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby and Warner Bros.' We're the Millers have the No. 1 and No. 2 slots, respectively, on the top ten movies on Netflix. But if you're looking for family fare or a great comedy, then they are both good choices.

But if neither of those options works for you, just remember that there's always something new to watch on Netflix. And we constantly update our list of the best movies on Netflix right now so you can see the terrific choices at your fingertips.

The best movies on Hulu right now (June 2023)
Jesse Garcia and Dennis Haysbert in Flamin' Hot.

Hulu is the real home for films in the Disney empire, largely because there are shockingly few new movies on Disney+. Hulu also behaves more like a conventional streaming platform because additional films are added every month, and other titles leave at the end of the month. This is the place to be for many of the legendary films of 20th Century Studios, as well as more recent additions to the library like the newly released Hulu original Flamin' Hot.

There are new movies coming to Hulu all the time, and we're on top of the changes with our updated list of the best movies on Hulu right now. If you're looking for your next movie night on Hulu, then we've got you covered.

Watch Adrien Broner vs Bill Hutchinson: The return of the “The Problem”
Promotional poster showing Adrien Broner and Bill Hutchinson.


Adrien "The Problem" Broner (34-4-1, 24KOs) is working on a comeback. He and his promoter Don King are staging a return bout with Bill Hutchinson (20-2-4, 9 KOs) at the Casino Miami Jai Alai in Miami, Florida this weekend. Broner has only fought once since his 2019 loss to Manny Pacquiao. That unanimous decision loss seemed to put the nail in the coffin of his career. Broner's previous two fights were a loss to Mikey Garcia and a draw to Jessie Vargas. Broner and King are hoping for an exciting, career-revitalizing fight that will get Broner some attention from bigger names in the division.
