What to Watch This Weekend, From Netflix’s ‘The Sandman’ to the Return of ‘Industry’


Ready to settle down with a good movie or TV show as the week rolls to a close? If it’s high fantasy thrills and spills you’re in the mood for, look no further than Netflix’s epic new adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s beloved comic series The Sandman, with a stand-out performance from Tom Sturridge. Elsewhere, everyone’s favorite high-stakes banking drama Industry has returned to HBO, and its second season is already as nail-biting as ever. Finally, if you like your action movies with a twist, check out the latest flick in the Predator franchise, Prey, featuring breakout star Amber Midthunder—an Indigenous actress who is Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota—as a hunter battling the threat of the monster that lurks at the edge of her community.

“After years of false starts, The Sandman—Neil Gaiman’s classic comic series from 1989 to 1996—has finally been transformed into a sprawling Netflix series, starring Tom Sturridge, Vivienne Acheampong, Boyd Holbrook, Charles Dance, David Thewlis, Jenna Coleman, Joely Richardson, Gwendoline Christie, and Patton Oswalt, among (many) others,” writes Vogue’s Marley Marius. “In it, Sturridge plays Dream, a.k.a. Morpheus, a.k.a. The Sandman himself, who must restore order to both the waking and the dreaming worlds after being imprisoned for 100 years. Early reactions signal that Gaiman’s fervent fans, who long feared the formidable work unadaptable, are thrilled by the result.”

All 10 episodes of The Sandman are now streaming on Netflix.
