From dark crime procedurals to black-magic dramas, teen superheroes to Stephen King horror – your complete summer viewing guide

'An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life' (May 25)

Netflix
Who wants a good old-fashioned comedy buzz? Filmed in Greenville, South Carolina, this concert film of Steve Martin and Martin Short's joint tour is like comfort food – a wonderfully familiar blend of Hollywood anecdotes, banjo solos (because of course), jokes, sketches and the occasional cabaret-crooning interlude. It's like a cross between a TV variety show and a Vegas nightclub act stripped of extraneous glitz, with nothing but the pleasure of watching two comedians who clearly enjoy each other's company. Yes, this feels like it carbon-dates back to the age of vaudeville, or possibly the late Seventies; no, you won't mind at all. Martin's tuneful, "impromptu" tribute to his buddy, which turns into a passive-aggressive call-and-response duet, is worth the price of admission alone. DF
