Thanks to the success of Yellowstone and its many (and we mean many spin-offs) alone, Paramount+ is a streaming powerhouse. In addition to its Dutton-sized collection, the platform has acquired a heap of exciting movies, too. Don't forget the platform's recent merger with Showtime, which made its gargantuan slate even bigger. But we won't judge if you're merely a Paramount+ subscriber for your daily dose of Beth Dutton.

If not, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best films on Paramount+. There are action flicks like Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One and Top Gun Maverick (which you should rewatch weekly, at least), along with horror films like Smile and Disturbia. If you’re in the mood for something light, Paramount+ has you covered on that front, too—check out Instant Family and The Lost City. Keep scrolling to find what else the streamer has to offer. You won’t be disappointed.

Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One

Tom Cruise returns as the legendary Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One. This time, he and the IMF team are tasked with finding a new and dangerous weapon. If the wrong person finds it first, humankind will be in grave danger. (Where have you heard that one before?) Thankfully, Hunt is a master at taking down bad guys. As tensions rise, Hunt has to decide between saving his loved ones or saving the world. (Once again, where have you heard that one before?!)

The Big Short

I'm sorry to take you back to the horrors of 2008, but The Big Short is worth the trip. In this film, the 2008 housing crisis is depicted through the eyes of Wall Street aficionado Michael Burry (Christian Bale), who realizes a ton of subprime mortgage loans are about to fail. In an unprecedented move, Burry bets against the housing market and pours his investor's money into credit swaps, setting off a historic chain of events. Eventually, Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling), a successful banker, and Mark Baum (Steve Carell), a skilled hedge-fund specialist, take notice and devise a plan. An economic collapse is inevitable, but if they act quickly, they just might come out on top.
