The king of sci-fi films Ridley Scott is back with a new television show and we’re damn near frothing at the mouth. Taking big-screen talent to the small screen, Scott’s new show follows androids who attempt to raise children on a new planet after a war has left Earth destroyed. With the trailer giving us a creepy reenactment of the three little pigs, Scott has pulled out all the stops for his American TV debut with disturbing looking aliens and frighting theatrics at the forefront of this sci-fi drama. Set to land on HBO Max September 3rd, Scott’s new series stars Viking’s Travis Fimmel and Danish actor, Amanda Collin, as the android mother.
Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield are sharing a screen? We’re already obsessed.
Raised by Wolves
Judas and the Black Messiah
From the trailer alone Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield should be handed all the Oscars for their deception of Fred Hampton and the Black Panther Party. Directed and produced by Shaka King, the film dives into the life of petty criminal William O’Neal who agrees to work as an informant for the FBI in order to take down the Black Panther Chairman Fred Hampton. The chilling trailer also shows Moonlight’s Aston Sanders and Breaking Bad’s Jesse Plemons who are joining in on the drama for what is set to be the film of the year for 2021.

The anthology project is set to open the 58th New York Film Festival on September 25, but we are yet to receive an official release date.
