Stars on Mars

Tired of watching B-list celebrities sing in elaborate costumes or attempt to do the paso doble? In this new Fox unscripted series streaming on Hulu, a dozen stars (from NFL great Marshawn Lynch to UFC fighter Ronda Rousey to Modern Family alum Ariel Winter) compete in space-camp challenges as if preparing to colonize Mars. William Shatner, 92, oversees the madness, raising an eyebrow when some competitors mistake cyclist Lance Armstrong, 51, for late Apollo 11 legend Neil Armstrong.

Flamin’ Hot (2023)

Eva Longoria makes her feature directing debut with this film, the comedic and inspirational story of a Frito-Lay janitor-turned-executive named Richard Montañez (played by Narcos: Mexico star Jesse Garcia), who supposedly channeled his Mexican American heritage to invent Flamin’ Hot Cheetos in the 1970s. (Frito-Lay has disputed that the spicy snack was Montañez’s brainchild.)

Chevalier (2023)

Kelvin Harrison Jr. won raves playing Joseph Bologne, the real-life son of a French plantation owner and an enslaved African woman who rose to the top of late-19th-century French society as a violinist and composer — until his ill-timed affair with a married (and white) opera singer (Samara Weaving). This is a lush costume drama with a modern flair, unearthing a forgotten chapter in history.

Coming June 22

The Bear, Season 2 (Hulu Original Series)

In the first season of this remarkable dramedy series, we met a talented but troubled chef (Jeremy Allen White) who heads home to Chicago to take over his family’s deep-in-debt sandwich shop after years of toiling in Michelin-starred restaurants. Now Carmy Berzatto is back in the kitchen, battling unruly relatives and staffers as well as his own demons.​​

Coming June 25

Pride Across America: Livestream

ABC News’ Gio Benitez and Alex Perez will host a five-hour live stream of Pride marches in New York City, Chicago and San Francisco to celebrate the LGBTQ+ communities. (The service will also live stream the L.A. parade on June 11 and Houston’s 45th annual celebration on June 24.)

Barbarian (2022)

Georgina Campbell stars in a twisty horror film with a very modern premise: A young woman, traveling to Detroit for a job interview, arrives at an Airbnb-like rental home late at night — and discovers it’s been double-booked and there’s another guest staying there. And that’s not the only secret lurking within the walls of this house.

Coming June 30

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Have you seen all those online memes of folks recreating their lives as Wes Anderson movies? Well, why not savor one of Anderson’s best films, a quirky fable set in a very stylized ski resort in the 1930s where a lascivious concierge (Ralph Fiennes, 60) scrambles to deal with the fallout when one of his paramours suddenly dies.​​
