Adam Pally is an unwanted pandemic guest in the trailer for Who Invited Charlie?

What happens when an unexpected guest arrives at your house amid the pandemic? Do you let that person in? Phil Schreiber (Veep’s Reid Scott) faces that exact situation when his college roommate, Charlie (Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s Adam Pally), shows up at his front door in the first trailer for Who Invited Charlie?

It’s March 2020, and the pandemic is underway. Phil, an egocentric hedge fund manager, heads to the Hamptons with his wife, Rosie (F9’s Jordana Brewster), and teenage son, Max (newcomer Peter Dager), to escape the chaos of New York City and wait out the pandemic. One night, the Schreiber’s retreat receives an unexpected guest when the free-spirited Charlie asks to stay at their house. Rosie questions if Charlie “has something on her husband,” which he denies, but Phil still begrudgingly lets his old friend inside.

Rosie’s instincts are correct because Charlie knows Phil’s secrets, which may explain why he allowed his roommate inside the house. Despite being a “100% certified idiot,” Rosie grows to like Charlie, as does the quiet and anxious Max. However, Phil’s secrets “threaten to do more harm than the virus they’re all hiding out from.”

The best thrillers on Netflix right now
Mark Wahlberg in Patriots Day.

If you're looking for thrills and chills to beat the summer heat, then Netflix's killer lineup of thrillers is waiting for you. Netflix produces more original thrillers than almost any other major film category except rom-coms. The almighty Netflix algorithm tells the site's executives which genres are popular, and thrillers have to be near the top of that list. Netflix has also made deals with rival studios to bring in some theatrical thrillers to add more depth to the streamer's library.

For the month of June, we've added Patriots Day and A Simple Favor to this list, as well as classic thrillers Wild Things and Fatal Attraction. And you can find even more in this roundup of the best thrillers on Netflix right now.

Superman: James Gunn recalls screen test between David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan
A woman and two males read Superman comics.

There is still over a year before Superman flies into theaters next summer. With production underway, Superman writer and director James Gunn took to Threads on Monday to reminisce about casting David Corenswet as Clark Kent and Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane.

"One year ago today David and Rachel screen-tested for Clark and Lois," Gunn wrote. "When they first read together it was like magic. What a wonderful year it’s been with two of the most extraordinary, vibrant, and meticulous actors I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. I can’t wait for you to see them on screen in just a little over a year."

The best movies on Hulu right now (June 2024)
Nell Tiger Free in The First Omen Movie.

It's almost unfair for Hulu content to be featured all over Disney+ because the former is a fully functional streaming service with a great selection of movies ... while the latter is not. As new films have slowed to a crawl on Disney+, Hulu has continued to put out a lineup that few other streamers can match. Even The Batman and Joker are on Hulu this month, but only through June 30. That's the only reason we didn't add them to this update.

Instead, we're putting the spotlight on four films that are going to stick around for a while: The First Omen, Bullet Train, Slums of Beverly Hills, and It Follows. Between those flicks, horror fans, action aficionados, and comedy lovers should be very happy. Hopefully, July will bring some more romance options to Hulu as well. In the meantime, our complete roundup of the best movies on Hulu right now is below.
