Shakuntala Devi: Human Computer | Premieres Friday, July 31, on Prime Video

Plot: Based on the life of Shakuntala Devi, the renowned mathematical genius from India, nicknamed 'Human Computer' due to her ability to solve complex problems without a machine.

Our Take: Since the poster launched for the movie in late 2019, I was suprised to learn that Shakuntala Devi's life and legacy in STEM and as a feminist icon has never been centralized in a movie. I'm excited to see one of my favorite actresses, Vidya Balan, take on Devi's legacy.,1000_AL_.jpg

'Hamilton' | Premieres Friday, July 3, on Disney+

Plot: The story of Alexander Hamilton -- politician, statesman and Founding Father.

Our Take: You could argue that watching Hamilton on the small screen is not exactly being the room where it happened, but I’m not throwing away my shot to finally see Lin-Manuel, Leslie, Daveed, Renée, and the rest of the spectacular founding cast in the original Broadway production. — Vanessa,1000_AL_.jpg

"Hanna" | Season 2 Premieres Friday, July 3, on Prime Video

Plot: Equal parts high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama, HANNA follows the journey of an extraordinary young girl raised in the forest, as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.

Our Take: Season 1 started as a fairly close retelling of the 2011 original, but quickly expanded the Hanna-verse with the introduction of new UTRAX child soldiers. I'm excited to see how star Esme Creed-Miles mixes it up with the new recruits. — James

'John Lewis: Good Trouble' | Premieres Friday, July 3, on Netflix

Plot: A documentary that explores Georgia representative John Lewis', 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health care reform, and immigration.

Our Take: My high school Civics teacher introduced me to Representative Lewis via his speech at the March on Washington in 1963. He was the youngest speaker at the event, which became part of American history the moment Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Similar to RBG, I hope this documentary introduces an entirely new generation to Lewis and his ongoing campaign for reform, justice, and peace.,1000_AL_.jpg

"JU-ON: Origins" | Premieres Friday, July 3, on Netflix

Plot: The legendary horror franchise is set to once again shake the world as Netflix Japan sets to release its first-ever horror of Netflix Japan Original, "JU-ON: Origins."

Our Take: If I'm being completely honest, I don't know that there's any good reason to revisit a cinematic universe that has spanned over a dozen movies (including multiple remakes by the original director) and multiple shorts. But who am I to hold a grudge? Though there are few details about the upcoming Netflix series, I'm hoping the series returns to the format of loosely connected vignettes, which managed to creep me out like nothing else could, back in 2003.

Sufiyum Sujatayum | Premieres Friday, July 3, on Prime Video

Plot: Sufiyum Sujathayum is a unique love story, that revolves around Rajeev and Sujatha, a married couple who fly to Dubai to attend the last rites of Sujatha's ex-lover, a Sufi priest.

Our Take: Watching the trailer for this movie, I was swept away by music composer M Jayachandran's soulful soundtrack, setting the stage for a love story.

'Mucho Mucho Amor' | Premieres Wednesday, July 8, on Netflix

Plot: A documentary the chronicles the life of Walter Mercado, who was raised in the sugar cane fields of Puerto Rico, and became a gender non-conforming psychic whose televised horoscopes reached 120 million Latinx viewers a day.

Our Take: Walter Mercado brought hope to his fans over a 50-year career, and he connected with millions of people back when he was simply a voice on the radio. Of course there are elements of melodrama and mystery to hook in a wide audience, but the documentary on a whole is described as a loving eulogy to the star who became a constellation in late 2019.,1000_AL_.jpg

"Expecting Amy" | Premieres Thursday, July 9, on HBO Max

Plot: Pregnancy is different for everyone. Here’s a glimpse into the longest nine months of Amy Schumer's life.

Our Take: Watching a comedian on her pregnancy journey may not sound like typical fodder for a stand-up special, but I’m intrigued by Amy Schumer’s unflinching and funny account of her path to motherhood. She’s been open and honest on social media throughout the process, and I admire her for using her platform to champion women and open up the conversation around pregnancy struggles. As she says in the trailer, “We’re f**king warriors.”,1000_AL_.jpg

'Palm Springs' | Available Friday, July 10, on Hulu

Plot: When carefree Nyles and reluctant maid of honor Sarah have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated as they are unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other.

Our Take: Movies and shows centered around time loops have almost become their own genre. To some it may seem like an overused novelty, but I'm not sick of it yet (thank you, "Russian Doll" and Happy Death Day). At a time when every day feels the same for some people, Palm Springs feels perfectly timed,1000_AL_.jpg
