First on the list is the visual masterpiece, The French Dispatch. The Wes Anderson film features an ensemble cast of Hollywood heavyweights—from longtime collaborators Bill Murray and Owen Wilson, to new additions Timothée Chalamet and Jeffrey Wright. The storyline is heavily inspired by Anderson’s own interest in The New Yorker—Bill Murray plays a character inspired by the magazine’s founding editor, Harold Ross—and promises to showcase the real world of journalism and the press.
Films aside, you can also look forward to a plethora of binge-worthy content on our favourite streaming sites. From biopics Inventing Anna and Pam & Tommy, to the latest dramas and action series from South Korea, there’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy.
Our top picks? Netflix’s Thirty-Nine. The K-Drama marks the return of Son Ye-Jin to our viewing screens and we could not be more excited. The series revolves around three friends on the brink of turning 4-0 as they navigate through work and their love lives—all while teasing each other.
For those looking for a more action-packed watch, Disney+ Original series Grid is sure to hit the spot. The Korean mystery thriller features a breathtaking plot full of twists and turns, countless cliffhangers and an all-star cast from start to finish. Apple Original Suspicion is also a good pick for those looking for a spine-chilling time. Based on the award-winning Israeli series False Flag, the eight-episode, heart-pounding drama promises a trans-Atlantic cat and mouse race where the show’s protagonists must evade the combined forces of the National Crime Agency and the FBI to prove their innocence.
