Prey – Friday, August 5
Preythe 5th film in the franchise predatorarrives on August 5 on Disney+. This time, we are propelled in 1719 in the footsteps of Naru, a young hunter from a tribe of Comanches. Armed with a simple bow, she faces a very unusual creature: an alien predator well known to fans of the saga, and who is making his first visit to Earth.
After directing episodes for the series The Boys and black-mirror, Dan Trachtenberg brings to Prey a particular attention to detail, in order to make the film as faithful as possible to the Comanche culture. The main roles were assigned to actors of Native American descent: Amber Midthunder (Legion, Comancheria…), as well as Dakota Beavers and Harlan Blayne Kytwayhat.
Jojo Rabbit – Friday, August 12
Starting August 12, jojo rabbit, the 2019 theatrical comedy joins the platform. Jojo, a 10-year-old boy, lives in a village in the heart of Nazi Germany.
