Past roles from 2017’s potential Oscar nominees shine on Tubi in November. Jessica Chastain (Molly’s Game) and Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour) star in John Hillcoat’s Lawless (2012), alongside Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf. A trio films starring Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project) arrive with Shadow of the Vampire (2000), Tom and Viv (1993) and Mississippi Burning (1988).
Also new this month are Werner Herzog’s celebrated documentary Grizzly Man (2005), Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s energetic action movie Gamer (2009) and unsettling thriller Hard Candy (2005).
Fans of off-kilter comedies have new options to watch. 50/50 (2011) combines laughter with grief and features Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anna Kendrick. David Wain’s They Came Together has Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler sparring in a rom-com spoof. Danny DeVito directs and stars in the blackly comic Throw Momma from the Train (1987).
Classic movies may be disappearing from other streaming services, but Tubi is growing their collection from Hollywood’s golden age. Screwball comedy fans rejoice: Carole Lombard and William Powell spark in Gregory La Cava’s My Man Godfrey (1936), and Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck ignite in Ball of Fire (1941). A duo of William Wyler films arrives with the drama The Little Foxes starring Bette Davis and noir Dead End (1937) with Humphrey Bogart, Sylvia Sydney and Joel McCrea. Orson Welles has roles in front of and behind the camera for another essential noir The Stranger (1946).
Here’s the rundown of the arrivals and departures specifically:
