This is a big weekend in sports and TV. Millions of people will be gathering around their televisions to tune into Super Bowl LVI as the Los Angeles Rams go against the Cincinnati Bengals and to watch Dr. Dre and his crew take on the halftime show, on Sunday, Feb. 13. And if football isn’t enough to get your fill of spots this weekend, the 2022 Winter Olympics are also in full swing. It’s a big weekend for NBC and Peacock, and they are segueing right into the premiere of their The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot, Bel-Air, right after the Super Bowl. Bel-Air is a dramatized retelling of the beloved 90s sitcom and will introduce Philly native Jabari Banks to the world as he makes his acting debut taking over Will Smith’s role in the reboot.
For those in the mood to head to a theater this weekend, Marry Me and Death on the Nile are hitting theaters on Friday, Feb. 11. Both films have had several delays due to COVID, but Marry Me arrives right on time for Valentine’s Day celebrations. The rom-com stars Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson, and Maluma, and it’s about a superstar whose heartthrob boyfriend cheats on her ahead of their wedding, causing her to impulsively marry an NYC math teacher who was in the crowd at one of her shows. Death on the Nile might have faced quite a few controversies before its release, and while the Armie Hammer controversy didn’t stop the film from hitting theaters, it’ll be interesting to see how it performs at the box office. Netflix’s biggest offering this week is Inventing Anna, starring Ozark’s Julia Garner, which tells the story of a journalist investigating how Anna Delvey convinced New York’s elite she was a German heiress and scammed them and banks into giving her money. Check out our picks for this week below, and check back in next week to see what’s in store for the rest of February.
