What's hot and new on streaming sites this weekend?

We may be Netflix junkies, but it looks like a lot of people will be checking out HBO Go this weekend because Zack Snyder's Justice League finally dropped on Thursday (Mar. 18). Fans of DC Comics will finally get to see the #SnyderCut version that the internet's been asking for since the Joss Whedon version came out in 2017.
