Most popular movies on Hulu this week

Hulu launched in 2007 as a joint venture between NBC Universal and News Corporation and has since become one of the major players in the streaming industry. Since 2019, when the Walt Disney Company became a majority owner of the platform, Hulu's number of paying subscribers has doubled from 22.8 million in the first quarter of 2019 to 50.2 million in the second quarter of 2024.

The popularity of the service has led to an increase in the amount of diverse content available for your ideal movie night. Hulu hosts everything from huge blockbusters to independent films to critically acclaimed originals. The streamer has been particularly successful with its original romantic comedies with films like "Palm Springs" (2020), "Happiest Season" (2020), and "Fire Island" (2022) refreshing the genre and receiving positive reviews from critics and fans.

Outside of their original movies, Hulu is a top destination for watching and rewatching beloved past franchises, carrying everything from "The Planet of the Apes" films to more recent hits like "Dune."
