I've been using Paramount+ for a while now, mostly to stream live events like the NFL and the Grammys. Until I realized just how much they have to offer. They're always adding fresh new content, and the movies they already have on the platform are pretty legit – we're talking big names like Cruise, DiCaprio, and Beyonce! So, if you're looking to expand your watchlist, you definitely need to check out these ten movies that are currently available on Paramount+.

Top Gun: Maverick
The long-awaited sequel to the 1986 film sees Tom Cruise back as Maverick, helping Mr. Miyagi the next generation of pilots. With unforgettable flight scenes, plenty of nostalgia, and emotional moments that will leave you in the fetal position, this movie is a ten out of ten.
Bellatrix Lestrange, The Incredible Hulk (2008), and Brad Pitt team up for a 90s cult classic known for its twist ending and the famous line, “The first rule of fight club is you don't talk about fight club.” The movie follows an insomniac who discovers the anarchic world of underground fight clubs through a soap salesman named Tyler Durden.
It may not be the most original thriller out there, but it's got BEYONCE, people! We all need some guilty pleasure movies in our lives, and this one delivers. Queen Bey plays the wife of Idris Elba's character, who becomes the target of an obsessed temp worker played by Ali Larter. The storyline may be a little on the Lifetime side, but it's still an entertaining watch.
Star Trek: Into the Darkness
Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, and Benedict Cumberbatch star in the second installment of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek trilogy which boasts obvious star power and tons of action-packed scenes. Even if you're not a hardcore Trekkie, you'll still enjoy the ride.
In 2014, Hollywood made two movies about the famous demigod, this one features Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Based on the comic book “Hercules: The Thracian Wars”, the film follows Herc as he journeys to defeat a warlord. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, some audiences enjoyed Johnson's wig-twirling performance.
The movie centers on a therapist caught in a terrifying curse involving a sinister smiling monster that takes on the form of innocent people. Whether you're a fan of psychological horror or not, the film is definitely worth watching to experience the hype for yourself.
The Wolf of Wall Street
Directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie, this black comedy follows Jordan Belfort, a real-life stockbroker who made millions through illegal schemes in the 80s and '90s. This movie is often considered Robbie's star turn, and now she's set to play Barbie – remember to dream big, kids!
This spin-off from the “Transformers” franchise takes place in the 1980s and follows Bumblebee, an Autobot who seeks refuge on Earth after fleeing a battle on his home planet. Overall, the film is a nostalgic throwback to the '80s, with lots of action and a giant robot disguised as a Volkswagen Beetle.
Mission Impossible: Fallout
Ethan Hunt's return in the sixth entry to the Mission Impossible film series has become the highest-grossing in the franchise, thanks in part to the awesome bathroom-fight scene. The movie follows the familiar formula of high-speed chases, explosions, and covert operations, but it also features Henry Cavill's infamous mustache.
A Quiet Place
Real-life married couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski star as parents fighting for survival in a world overrun by monsters that hunt using sound. The use of minimal dialogue adds to the film's suspense and tension, making it a must-see for horror fans.
