"Premieres" will feature official trailers and synopses from what I feel looks like the most interesting (or the only, in some cases) original programming coming out in the subsequent week on Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix, and elsewhere. In no way to these previews represent recommendations or reviews. My intent is to post this segment each Thursday or Friday, but we'll see. Enjoy!

Homecoming - Amazon Prime, November 2
Heidi Bergman (Roberts) is a caseworker at the Homecoming Transitional Support Centre, a Geist Group facility helping soldiers transition back to civilian life. Walter Cruz (Stephan James) is one of these soldiers, eager to begin the next phase of his life. Overseeing Heidi and the facility is Colin Belfast (Bobby Cannavale), an ambitious company man whose manic demands point to questionable motives.
Four years later, Heidi has started a new life, living with her mother (Sissy Spacek) and working as a small-town waitress, when a Department of Defense auditor (Shea Whigham) comes to her with questions about why she left the Homecoming facility. Heidi begins to realize that there’s a whole other story behind the story she’s been telling herself.
Prospect - In Theaters, November 2
Damon (Jay Duplass) and his teenage daughter Cee (Sophie Thatcher) travel to a remote alien moon in this retro-futuristic sci-fi western. They're planning to strike it rich, having secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon's toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the two quickly fall prey to unknown terrain and dangerous encounters as their mission turns deadly.
Forced to contend not only with the forest's other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father's greed-addled judgment, Cee realizes she must carve her own path to escape.
I have no clue what I'm doing, but I'll keep doing whatever it is to the best of my ability.
