Looking For Something New?

It's Labor Day weekend, y'all! That means a long weekend, barbeques, pool parties, and, if you're like me, consuming all the media I've missed out on. It's time to say goodbye to summer and hello to new fall media. 

The Hollywood Branded team got together to discuss the new media we're excited to watch & listen to this weekend, in addition to some media that we're looking forward to catch up on. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares some new media that comes out this weekend and some oldies that are fun to revisit. 


New Movies, TV Series, & Music To Obsess Over This Labor Day 2022 Weekend - 8.8.22

National Cinema Day

Fun fact: this Saturday, September 3rd, is the FIRST-EVER National Cinema Day! This means that more than 3,000 theaters across the United States will be selling tickets for only $3. Yes, you read that correctly—$3! This ticket price includes more expensive formats like IMAX and 3D. It's the perfect time to escape the heat, grab some delicious buttery popcorn & your favorite candy, and head to the cinema. 

I recommend buying your tickets in advance because theaters are sure to be packed with families and film buffs alike. If you're not sure what to watch, we got you, fam. Keep reading to see what's new!

Just because summer is on its way out the door, that doesn't mean summer blockbusters have left yet. If you missed out on some fan favorites, you could still go see some box-office hits like Top Gun: MaverickBullet Train, Elvis, and Thor: Love and Thunder. However, if you're looking for something new, here are a few new releases:

Instead, this series is set thousands of years before Bilbo & Frodo Baggins, in which we see the forging of the rings of power and the rise of Sauron—although you still may see some familiar characters. 

Rick and Morty Season 6
