Zelda Williams’ directorial debut, “Lisa Frankenstein,” is currently trending on Peacock.

Written by Diablo Cody, the comedy horror movie takes place in the same fictional universe as the screenwriter’s 2009 film “Jennifer’s Body.” This movie revolves around a goth teen (played by Kathryn Newton) who develops a relationship with a Victorian-era corpse (Cole Sprouse) that has been brought back to life in a zombie-like state.

“A Star Is Born” is on the list of current popular movies on Apple TV+.

The 2018 musical romance is the fourth adaptation of this classic story about an aspiring star who falls in love with an alcoholic celebrity who helps launch her career. “A Star Is Born” marked the directorial debut of Bradley Cooper, who also starred in the movie with Lady Gaga.

The 2017 monster movie “Kong: Skull Island” is trending on Max at the moment ― which is likely related to the recent release of “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” in theaters on March 29.

The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects and features a star-studded cast that includes Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson and John C. Reilly.
