New movies and shows to stream this weekend: The Sandman, Thirteen Lives, happiness + More

That sandman TV series have been in the making for over 30 years; Series creator Neil Gaiman even revealed that the casting process “had to have been one of the longest auditions a human has ever experienced.” With so much time and effort going into such popular source material, we all hope that the screen version premiering on Netflix today does the books justice. Over on Amazon Prime Video Ron Howard has also brought a compelling story to the screen, this is a true survival story. In 2018, several members of a boys’ soccer team were trapped in a Thai cave and their story is told along with the story of their rescuers Thirteen Lives. And Skydance Animation releases its latest movie, happinessabout an unlucky girl named Sam who stumbles into the world of good and bad luck and meets some magical creatures that change her life.

Want to find out more about these highlights and the rest of the standout weekend lineup? Check out the rest of the hit titles new to streaming this weekend below:

New on Netflix August 5: The Sandman


The Sandman was one of author Neil Gaiman’s first highly successful works (he has worked on dozens of projects since the comic’s debut in 1989, including Stardust, Good omensand American gods, all of which have been successfully adapted for the screen). but The Sandman was what many die-hard fans have been waiting for. The series stars Tom Sturridge as Dream (aka Morpheus) and follows him after he’s released from a 106-year sentence and seeks to right the wrongs of the Dreaming, the realm he inhabits. The 10-part series, out Friday, stars Gwendoline Christie, Charles Dance and Kirby Howell-Baptiste.

New to Amazon Prime Video, August 5th: Thirteen Lives


In 2018, several members of a youth soccer team in Thailand were trapped along with their coach in a cave they were exploring when sudden heavy rains flooded the area and blocked the entrance. Her harrowing rescue took weeks and involved thousands of experts from around the world who were eventually able to recover her from the cave. Her story was brought to life by director Ron Howard in Thirteen Liveswhich stars Colin Farrell, Joel Edgerton and Viggo Mortensen as the core group of men essential to the rescue.

New on Apple TV+ August 5: happiness

happiness The film has had odd luck ahead of its release on Apple TV+ this weekend, the film has been delayed a number of times since a February 2022 release, and also due to some casting changes early in production. The cast is pretty stellar though, with newcomer Eva Noblezada playing the lead, Sam, a girl who discovers that there are lands of good luck and bad luck and that there are magical creatures that can help change a person’s luck. Some of the creatures include Simon Pegg as a cat named Bob, Jane Fonda as a dragon, and John Ratzenberger as the mayor of Bad Luck. (If the premise sounds like a Pixar movie, and the inclusion of John Ratzenberger also sounds like a very Pixar move, that would be because happiness is a production of Skydance Animation, the company of former Pixar CEO John Lasseter.) happiness Premieres this Friday on Apple TV+.
