MUST-WATCH: A GTA superhero takes flight

Somebody from the Greater Toronto Area has made it into the MUST-WATCH Top 10! But will this new superhero top the list, or will it go to the latest dinosaur themed adventure? Perhaps a miniseries about the intersection of true crime and religion? You’ll have to keep reading to find out!

Ms. Marvel

Where to watch: Disney+

We’re starting off this week with a superhero from the GTA!

Ms. Marvel is the latest offering from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it stars newcomer Iman Vellani (who was raised in Markham) as Muslim teenager Kamala Khan. She’s an ordinary teenager living in New Jersey, and she’s obsessed with the Avengers (Captain Marvel in particular). One day she finds a bangle handed down throughout her family that gives her the power of making light constructs, essentially objects made out of hard light. She decides to put these newfound powers to good use, and become a superhero just like the people who inspire her daily. This show also stars Aramis Knight (from Ender’s Game), Matt Lintz (from the Walking Dead) and Mohan Kapur (from Hostages).

Hustle is a new film starring Adam Sandler (from Happy Gilmore and Uncut Gems). He plays a scout for the Philadelphia 76ers who dreams of becoming a coach and not travelling on the road as much. The team’s coach dies, and his son takes over. Instead of giving Sandler a coaching position, he sends him to Europe to look for the next big player. He finds a young man hustling ballers called Bo (played by Utah Jazz player Juancho Hernangómez). Sandler makes it his mission to get Bo into the NBA no matter what, and he’s even willing to put his career on the line.

Jurassic World: Dominion is the sixth film in the franchise in total, and the third of this respective trilogy. Directed by Jurassic World’s director Colin Trevorrow, this film sees the return of Owen (played by Chris Pratt from Parks and Recreation) and Claire (played by Bryce Dallas Howard from the Help). They’re been raising Maisie on their own, until she’s kidnapped with a new Velociraptor that was reproduced asexually. Owen and Claire have to go on the run to find the two, teaming up with the protagonists of the original trilogy (returning actors Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern), to save the children and possibly the world.

Under the Banner of Heaven

Where to watch: Disney+

Last but not least, a miniseries based on some true crime!

Under the Banner of Heaven is an FX miniseries created by Dustin Lance Black (who won an Academy Award for writing the screenplay for Milk). This show adapts a nonfiction book of the same name about a police investigation into the murder of a Mormon woman and her infant daughter. The woman is played by Daisy Edgar-Jones (from Fresh), and Andrew Garfield (from Silence) plays the main detective investigating her murder. Also a Mormon, this case shakes his faith and leads him to uncover some shameful secrets behind members of the community, which they committed under the banner of heaven.
