Here’s a collection curated by The Associated Press’ entertainment journalists of what’s arriving on TV, streaming services and music platforms this week.
— Questlove’s “Summer of Soul (…or When the Revolution Could not Be Televised)” would certainly sound and look best on the big screen with a thumping sound system. (It’s playing nationwide in theaters this Friday.) But if you’d rather have a house party, you can also stream it on Hulu. The film mines a landmark 1969 Harlem concert series known as “Black Woodstock” that included performances by Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stone and many others. Far from as renown as another music festival that summer, the Harlem Cultural Festival is given new, glorious life in “Summer of Soul.”
— Don Cheadle leads an expansive ensemble of Benicio del Toro, Kieran Culkin, David Harbour, Jon Hamm, Amy Seimetz, Brendan Fraser, Noah Jupe, Julia Fox, Ray Liotta, Bill Duke and Matt Damon in Steven Soderbergh’s 1950s Detroit crime drama “No Sudden Move.” The film, which debuts Thursday on HBO Max, is a series of double crosses that tease out some of the foundational injustices of Detroit history. It’s one of the most ambitious movies to be shot and released during the pandemic, and one that returns Soderbergh and Cheadle to Detroit, 23 years after another caper that landed in the Motor City, “Out of Sight.”
