Acclaimed French filmmaker Olivier Assayas (Personal Shopper) reimagines his own 1996 arthouse classic in this new miniseries. Alicia Vikander is Mira, an American actor in Paris to star in a remake of the silent French crime serial, Les Vampires.
But as Mira’s personal problems hit crisis point, the lines between character and actor, not to mention fact and fiction, begin to blur. A stylish metatextual character study co-starring Adria Arjona, Carrie Brownstein, and Tom Sturridge.
Former Doctor Who David Tennant is English adventurer Phileas Fogg in this new, big budget adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic novel. Set in the 19th century, the series sees Fogg bet that he can circumnavigate the globe by the titular deadline, accompanied by his servant and bodyguard Passepartout (Ibrahim Kona) and love interest Abigail Fix Fortescue (Leonie Benesch). This looks like a sumptuous affair that should appeal to fans of Kenneth Branagh’s Hercule Poirot films, and a second season has already been greenlit.
Westworld: season four (June 27)
The acclaimed science fiction series returns! What began as an update of Michael Crichton’s 70s SF thriller in which robots ran amok in a historically themed amusement park evolved into a much more complex meditation on free will, identity, and the nature of consciousness as Evan Rachel Woods’ robot revolutionary Dolores tried to foment a global uprising and Thandiwe Newton’s conflicted android Maeve tried to stop her.

But now Dolores is dead and Maeve suspects she might have had a point. Where to now? One of the most challenging and cerebral genre series in recent memory is sure to offer more mysteries and surprises.

Chef (June 3)
Marvel and Star Wars mainstay Jon Favreau directs and stars in this comedy that follows a disillusioned high-end chef (Favreau) as he rediscovers his love of cooking by hitting the road in a food truck and slinging Cuban sandwiches with the help of his son (Emjay Anthony) and old offsider (John Leguizamo).
This is a sunny, intimate little feel-good comedy, but Favreau didn’t shy away from calling in a few favours, resulting in Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, and Dustin Hoffman cropping up in supporting roles.
Thomasin McKenzie’s country mouse decamps for London and fashion school, only to find herself with a supernatural connection to the Swinging 60s and Anya Taylor-Joy’s tragic nightclub chanteuse, in Edgar Wright’s audacious historical horror. Notes of giallo confused some pundits on release who were expecting a different kind of thriller, but this psycho-geographic ghost story is defiantly its own thing, both a love letter to the past and a warning not to whitewash it.
The true story of the toxic relationship between chemical heir John du Pont (Steve Carrell) and Olympic champion wrestlers Mark (Channing Tatum) and Dave (Mark Ruffalo) Schultz, who came to train at du Pont’s facility on the titular estate, only to be caught up in his bizarre world with tragic results.
Director Bennett Miller slowly builds an atmosphere of increasing paranoia as it becomes apparent that du Pont’s various eccentricities are indicators of deep-seated disturbance, and Carrell gives a career-best performance as the powerful, perverse du Pont.
