There has been plenty of conversation about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ outstanding performance at the box office and that is sure to continue this weekend. Following last weekend’s introduction of America Chavez in Multiverse of Madness, another movie about a child with supernatural abilities is heading to theaters this week. Ryan Kiera Armstrong and Zac Efron are starring in Firestarter, which is a story about a little girl who can set things on fire with her mind. The movie will be available on Peacock and in theaters on Friday, May 13.
Jerrod Carmichael is making his directorial debut with On the Count of Three, playing in select theaters and on digital also on May 13, and it is an absolute must-watch. Hulu has really been in their miniseries bag, telling completely bizarre stories mostly based on true events. This time around Jessica Biel is starring in their latest miniseries, Candy, which could be the perfect weekend binge for any true-crime fans. If you want something a bit more lighthearted, HBO’s critically acclaimed Hacks is also back for Season 2 this week. Hit shows Atlanta and Better Call Saul were back this week with two intense episodes, and we shared our thoughts on why those two continue to be some of TV’s greatest offerings this season.
Any Selena Gomez fan should go ahead and cancel their Saturday plans because the actress is making her Saturday Night Live hosting debut on May 14, alongside musical guest Post Malone. If you’re missing awards SZN, don’t fret. The 2022 Billboard Music Awards, hosted by Diddy, are going down at 8 p.m. on Sunday, May 15. Keep reading for our What to Watch recommendations of the best TV and movies from this week.

Selena Gomez hosts 'SNL'
When: Saturday, May 14
Did I cancel my Saturday night plans to watch Selena Gomez’s SNL hosting debut? Maybe, but that’s neither here nor there. It’s hard to believe that she has yet to host but I guess proving her acting chops on the Hulu comedy Only Murders in the Building was enough to convince the SNL producers to bring her in for a hosting gig. OG SelGo fans already knew she was both hilarious and incredibly talented as an actress since her stint as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place so this is a no-brainer for her. Post Malone is this week’s musical guest, so this week’s SNL might be one you don’t want to miss. —KR
