The Princess bows to no one in Hulu’s new previews

This summer, the box office has been dominated by Top Gun: Maverick, dinosaurs, and an assortment of superheroes. But if you want a cure for the blockbuster blues, then The Princess may be the film you’ve been looking for.

20th Century Studios’ fantasy/comedy is skipping theaters entirely and going directly to Hulu later this week. And if the trailer for the film is any indication, it’s going to be a fun story to experience in the comfort of our own homes.

Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of Hulu:

“When a beautiful, strong-willed princess refuses to wed the cruel sociopath to whom she is betrothed, she is kidnapped and locked in a remote tower of her father’s castle. With her scorned, vindictive suitor intent on taking her father’s throne, the princess must protect her family and save the kingdom.”

Dominic Cooper co-stars in the movie as Julius, the “sociopath” mentioned above who believes that he can make the Princess his bride and steal her kingdom. Olga Kurylenko also appears in the film as Moira, with Veronica Ngo as Linh.

Le-Van Kiet directed The Princess from a script by Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton. The Princess will premiere on Hulu this Friday, July 1.

Everything leaving Hulu in April 2023
Adam Driver and Matt Damon in The Last Duel.

Parting is such sweet sorrow, and that's never been more true for Hulu than in April 2023, when a handful of excellent movies, TV shows, and documentaries are leaving the streamer for an undetermined length of time.

But bad news can also be good news, as this serves as an excellent motivation to watch those programs you've always wanted to see, but never got a chance to. From an underrated historical drama starring Matt Damon, 65's Adam Driver, Jodie Comer, and Ben Affleck to a classic rom-com starring Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton, and John Wick: Chapter 4's Keanu Reeves, Hulu has a lot of expiring content this month to warrant one last viewing before they go away.

New Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves preview enters a dangerous maze
Sophia Lillis in Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

Later this month, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves will bring the storied RPG franchise back to the big screen for the first time in 23 years (not counting the two direct-to-video D&D movies, of course). Fortunately, it looks like Honor Among Thieves is striking the right tone between fantasy action and a touch of comedy. And in a new preview scene from the film, the unlikely heroes are thrust into a shifting maze while being chased by a displacer beast. Additionally, there's an unexpected nod to the franchise's past.
