The following feature will be available for streaming Nov. 20 on Disney+.

Many kids dream of becoming astronauts and flying into the stars and even adults are wowed by images of the Earth from outer space. Only last year, the documentary Apollo 11 impressed audiences and critics with its use of newly discovered, high-quality footage chronicling man’s first trip to the moon. The Real Right Stuff from Disney and National Geographic goes back even earlier in time, showing the beginning of U.S. space exploration during the 1950s and 1960s. The footage on display here isn’t quite as awe-inspiring, but this movie is interesting...

Running Time: 100 minutes

Running Time: 96 minutes

This film debuted Oct. 23 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

Fourteen years ago, the world was simultaneously amused and shocked by Borat, a movie featuring an exaggerated and eccentric Kazakhstani reporter traveling across the U.S. to make a documentary about American culture. While speaking to random strangers and having several bizarre encounters, the movie ended up exposing less-than-flattering aspects of some of the nation’s citizens. With the country now embracing more and more extremist views, the character has officially returned for the hysterically-entitled follow-up, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, aka Borat Subsequent...
