Seberg is a political thriller inspired by real events about the French New Wave darling and Breathless star Jean Seberg (Kristen Stewart).

Upload - This sci-fi comedy satire, created by Greg Daniels, is set in a future where humans are able to ‘upload’ themselves into their preferred choice of afterlife. When Nathan (Robbie Amell) meets an early death, he is greeted by Nora in his version of heaven. The series follows the two as Nathan grows accustomed to life away from his loved ones, and the alive Nora struggles to stay afloat working her job alongside Nathan in the afterlife.

Homecoming - Heidi Bergman (Julia Roberts) had been a social worker at the Homecoming Transitional Support Centre, a live-in facility run by the Geist Group; the facility ostensibly helped soldiers transition to civilian life, though why they needed this help is unclear.

Baki - Martial arts legend Baki Hanma has one wish: to train harder and fight better than his legendary father. Five of death row’s most brutal and violent inmates are gathering in force to take on Baki with the hope that he will annihilate them, having grown bored of their own strength and existence. Baki is joined by his martial artist friends to fight by his side in the world’s deadliest tournament.

The Last Days of American Crime - This dark and gritty crime thriller is based on a graphic novel of the same name. Set in the near future, the movie follows career criminal, Graham Bricke (Édgar Ramírez) in a world locked in a death-struggle with crime.
