“Bohemian Rhapsody“ (2018, PG-13), the factually dubious but rousing drama about the life of Freddie Mercury, earned five Academy Award nominations, including best picture and best actor for Rami Malek’s performance. It’s new on Cable on Demand and VOD, along with “At Eternity’s Gate” (2018, PG-13), featuring Oscar-nominated Willem Dafoe as Vincent van Gogh. Both are also on DVD and at Redbox.
“The Umbrella Academy: Season 1” is an offbeat superhero drama based on the cult comic-book series about a team of adopted, estranged siblings with odd powers. Ellen Page, Tom Hopper and Mary J. Blige star; 10 episodes on Netflix.
Another misfit crew debuts on superhero-centric service DC Universe: “Doom Patrol,” based on the cult comic book, stars Matt Bomer, Brendan Fraser and Timothy Dalton. New episodes air each Friday on DC Universe.
