New streaming movies are coming to entertain you and your family during socially distanced times.

This weekend, Netflix has not one but two holiday entries, with Vanessa Hudgens playing three different roles in a royal romantic-comedy sequel and bona fide national treasure Dolly Parton playing an angel in a feel-good musical. Hulu unleashes a thriller with Sarah Paulson as a creepily overprotective mom, Amazon debuts the first film in Steve McQueen's "Small Axe" anthology, Shudder revisits the origins of "The Exorcist," and Margot Robbie is an old-school bank robber in a Depression-era crime drama.

If you're feeling the itch to get back to the movies in person, and there's a drive-in or it's safe enough to return to your local theater, the innovative drama "Sound of Metal" stars Riz Ahmed as a rock drummer who gradually loses his hearing, and the action movie "Vanguard" features Jackie Chan as the head of a Chinese special-forces unit protecting an accountant from bad guys.
