The Best in Streaming This Week: ‘The Suicide Squad’, the NFL Returns, and ‘Val’

Michael King

While much of the world is watching the Summer Olympic Games from Tokyo, there’s plenty of good stuff to be found that’s stream-worthy out there. The biggest things going on this week that people will be interested in have to be The Suicide Squad, the NFL’s annual Hall of Fame Game, and a fascinating new documentary about the life of actor Val Kilmer.

Director James Gunn, known for his work on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, among other films, was turned loose with The Suicide Squad — the next entry in the still-growing DC Extended Universe. Margot Robbie (Birds of Prey), Joel Kinnaman (For All Mankind), Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder), and Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) reprise their roles from the 2016 Suicide Squad film, and are joined by Idris Elba (Luther), John Cena (Bumblebee), and Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who) in this stand-alone sequel.

After the first film fell kind of flat in the eyes of many comic book fans — with plenty of finger-pointing going around — Gunn was given free rein with what looks to be an incredibly wild story that takes its cues directly from the storylines of the DC Comics that the characters themselves were drawn from.

The Suicide Squad shows up in theaters and on HBO Max beginning on Thursday evening.

NFL Hall of Fame Game: Cowboys vs. Steelers

The annual rite of summer that marks the beginning of football season comes this week. The NFL’s annual Hall of Fame Game, played each summer at Fawcett Stadium at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, will be played on Thursday night. That night marks the start of the NFL’s pre-season. This year, the NFL’s pre-season will be reduced from four games to three, as a result, the Hall of Fame Game will be the only NFL game scheduled for this week. A full slate of NFL games will get underway next Thursday (August 12), with the majority of them available for viewing — at least in part — on NFL Network. The pre-season leads up to the NFL’s opening Kickoff Weekend, September 9-13. For those who simply can’t get enough football this weekend, the Canadian Football League’s regular season gets underway with two games on ESPN2: the Hamilton Tiger-Cats battle the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Thursday night at 8:30, and the newly-rechristened Edmonton Elks (formerly the Eskimoes) play host to the Ottawa Redblacks on Saturday night at 10 pm ET.

Watch the NFL Hall of Fame Game featuring the Dallas Cowboys vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night on Fox. Coverage begins at 8 pm ET.
