All aboard the Bullet Train. The zippy actioner, brought to life in adrenaline-fuelled fashion by Deadpool 2 director David Leitch, sees Brad Pitt play unlucky operative Ladybug. His fortunes hardly change when a simple retrieval job on the titular bullet train goes off the rails as Ladybug fends off an increasingly colorful cast of larger-than-life assassins, including Brian Tyree Henry and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s besuited British duo Lemon and Tangerine.

The Gossip Girl reboot is back with a second season of teen drama on HBO Max. Set years after the original series that made Penn Badgley and Blake Lively household names, the show follows a new set of rich kids at Constance Billard school. Most of the cast is back in the second outing, including Jordan Alexander, Amanda Warren, Savannah Lee Smith, and Whitney Peak. However, fans of the original show will also recognize a familiar face as Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) returns to the Upper East Side. The show premiered with two episodes and will be airing weekly from here on out on Thursdays. UK viewers, there’s no release date yet, but the series will likely be coming to BBC iPlayer at some point in the new year.


If there's nothing here that tickles your fancy, then you might have to start looking into each streaming service's back catalogue, which can be a daunting task given how many titles they each host. Fear not, though... if you're a TV fan, then we've got you covered with our lists of the best Netflix shows, best Disney Plus shows, and the best Amazon Prime Video shows.
