This week HBO Max has yet another feature film coming straight to streaming, but it's not just any movie — it's Mortal Kombat. This will reboot the game franchise's transition to film, and it will be interesting to see how things go when it premieres on streaming at 3 AM on Friday. In terms of actual games, MLB The Show 21 is coming out and this time it's on Xbox too and it's free for anyone who subscribes to Game Pass.

Otherwise, there are some major finales as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier wraps up its run on Disney+, For All Mankind finishes the season on Apple TV+ and Snowfall closes out season four on FXX.

But for new items on streaming we're looking at Netflix again. For sci-fi fans, Anna Kendrick and Daniel Dae Kim star in the space thriller Stowaway or you can try the Italian superpower series Zero, while fantasy fans can enjoy Shadow and Bone as the Grishaverse comes alive. Last but not least, you can get your documentary fill with a new David Attenborough flick, Life in Color. Look below to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
