The Little Mermaid and More

The fall movie season officially begins with the Labor Day holiday weekend, but it’s one of summer’s biggest blockbusters that’s set to dominate streaming this September. That would be Disney’s live-action “The Little Mermaid,” starring Halle Bailey as Ariel. The film earned a mighty $297 million at the domestic box office over the summer, while its worldwide gross tapped out at the $569 million mark. Bailey earned unanimous raves for her luminous star turn as Ariel, which marked her first leading role in a feature film.

Oscar season is also getting started on the streamers, with Netflix debuting international film contender “El Conde” from Pablo Larrain (best known stateside for directing Natalie Portman in “Jackie” and Kristen Stewart in “Spencer”) and potential short film contender “The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar” from Wes Anderson (his second 2023 release after summer’s “Asteroid City”). Sundance favorites “Flora and Son” and “Cassandro” are also making their streaming world premieres this month.
