Malcolm & Marie

Emmy-winner Zendaya and Tenet‘s John David Washington are a couple battling a tense night that tests the limits of their relationship in this black-and-white one-location drama from the writer-director of Euphoria. Following a celebratory movie premiere, a filmmaker and his girlfriend return home and find their night takes a turn when revelations about their relationship surface.

Space Sweepers

South Korean space opera and would-be blockbuster Space Sweepers heads to Netflix. Set in 2092, a space junk clean-up crew makes an unexpected discovery—a weapon of mass destruction in humanoid form. For this broke gang, the opportunity for a get-rich-quick scheme is too much to resist.

Red Dot

A couple’s serene hiking trip turns into a fight for survival when someone starts terrorising them from a distance. The red dot of a laser sight is ominous enough, but it’s just a precursor to bullets flying as the couple try to escape from their remote getaway with a would-be killer on their tails.


The legendary footballer is the subject of this new documentary for Netflix, mixing rare archival footage with exclusive interviews for a portrait of the titular Brazilian superstar.

Tribes of Europa

A new German sci-fi series, set in 2074 on a war-ravaged continent. Warring factions fight for control of Europe in the aftermath of a global catastrophe, a dystopian environment three siblings must navigate with extreme caution after discovering a mysterious cube that could change the future for better—or worse.

Pieces of a Woman

Vanessa Kirby (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) gets a chance to shine in this gut-wrenching tale of a woman losing her baby. The trailer alone looks devastating, and Kirby’s performance has already attracted plenty of praise alongside that of screen legend and Oscar-winner Ellen Burstyn, both of whom might find themselves in awards contention. Yes, the film also features recently canceled piece of garbage Shia LaBeouf, but it would be a disservice to his castmates (who also include Succession’s Sarah Snook and House of Cards’ Molly Parker) as well as director Kornél Mundruczó (who made fantastic canine apocalypse White God) to let his presence get in the way of watching this.

Outside the Wire

Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) leads this near-future action film as an android officer working with a drone pilot to locate a doomsday device within a deadly militarized zone. The trailer pushes the action elements, without conveying much about the actual plot and tone of the movie, but there are some welcome faces among the supporting chance, and we’re more than happy to take a punt on original Netflix action after this year’s Extraction.

History of Swear Words

We’ve already enthused about the potential of this Netflix series hosted by Nicolas Cage that dedicates individual episodes to specific swear words. Join us in imagining Cage solemnly intoning the following words: “Fuck.” “Shit.” “Bitch.” “Dick.” “Pussy.” And “Damn.” Cage will be joined by guest stars and experts in exploring the naughty words, which I’m sure will be fine, but can they match Nic in full flight as seen below? Shit, no.

Cobra Kai – Season 3

Cobra Kai returns for a third season of ass-kicking and mythology-demolition, the first produced as a Netflix Original after its origins on YouTube. Season 3 looks set to jump right into the unresolved conflict from the season 2 finale and sees rivals Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) put aside their differences to set things right, not that Cobra Kai founder John Kreese (Martin Kove) is going to make life easy for them…

Riverdale – Season 5

Season five of Riverdale will begin with its characters’ final days as students at Riverdale High—and then, apparently, rejoins the gang as twentysomethings, when they return to Riverdale to escape troubled pasts. The show has already proved to be far more batshit than the dirty version of Archie it seemed to have started life as, and as you’ll see from the trailer below, is not slowing down on the murder vibes after having already featuring more than any small town’s fair share of killers.

The Dig

Academy Award-nominees Carey Mulligan (soon to be seen against type in Promising Young Woman) and Ralph Fiennes lead this dramatised true story set during the cusp of World War II, following a wealthy widow who hires an amateur archaeologist to excavate the burial mounds on her estate… only to make a surprise historical discovery.
