"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!
Future Man: Season 2- Hulu, January 11
"Future Man season 2 picks up in 2162, and Josh, Wolf, and Tiger learn that their season one mission to stop the cure from getting out didn’t work. In this timeline, Stu Camillo is now in power, having created the cure, and launched a plan to relocate humanity to Mars. A shadowy organization called the Pointed Circle seeks to recruit Josh to take Stu down – but are they the good guys, or is Stu? As Wolf quickly acclimates to the strange customs of this time, Tiger struggles with her Biotic identity and searches for an escape. Josh unites the team in an epic plan to save the world, but their time-traveling catches up to them, and they must reckon with their choices and what to do next."
Informer: Season 1- Amazon Prime, January 11
"Written and created by Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani, and directed by Jonny Campbell, Informer is a sophisticated, character-driven thriller that follows Raza Shar (Nabhaan Rizwan), a young man of Pakistani descent, born and raised in East London. After a series of unfortunate events not coincidentally tied to the color of his skin, Raza is coerced into becoming counter-terrorist officer Gabe’s newest undercover informer. Gabe (Paddy Considine), who has a past he is unwilling to expose, is joined by Holly (Bel Powley), his new and ambitious partner whose endless curiosity becomes threatening to him. As Raza falls deeper into a complex web of bad guys and the clock ticks for Gabe and Holly as the threat to London grows, the stakes for all three will reach a fever pitch."
On the Basis of Sex- In Theaters, January 11
"The film tells an inspiring and spirited true story that follows young lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg as she teams with her husband Marty to bring a groundbreaking case before the U.S. Court of Appeals and overturn a century of gender discrimination. The feature will premiere in 2018 in line with Justice Ginsburg’s 25th anniversary on the Supreme Court."
Revenger- Netflix, January 15
"To avenge the murder of his family, a man goes to Sura Island, a prison where dangerous criminals are housed."
I have no clue what I'm doing, but I'll keep doing whatever it is to the best of my ability.
