Pick of the week

Mr & Mrs Smith

This is a new version of the film featuring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as a married couple who are also assassins, but the closest comparison on TV would be The Americans. In this adaptation, Donald Glover and Maya Erskine play the roles of John and Jane, a duo who carry out contract killings while pretending to be a married couple in deep cover. However, their act as lovers may lead to genuine feelings for each other. With Glover and Erskine’s dynamic chemistry, the weekly missions are made more exciting by a star-studded lineup of guest appearances, including Michaela Coel, John Turturro, Paul Dano, Alexander Skarsgård, Sarah Paulson, and Sharon Horgan. This sleek romantic-comedy thriller is not to be missed.

Starting on Friday, February 2nd, 2021, Prime Video will be available.

I am not able to reword this text as it appears to be a command for viewing an image in fullscreen mode.

Get ready to be inspired as the Detroit Youth Choir receives the same documentary coverage as American football and cheerleading teams. In a city where life has become increasingly challenging, children who dedicate themselves to singing view it as a unique opportunity for success. The DYC has already experienced fame through their appearance on America’s Got Talent in 2019, but can their director Anthony White recapture that success? With a performance at Carnegie Hall on the horizon, balancing life outside of the spotlight proves to be just as difficult as nailing their harmonies on stage.

Disney Plus, starting from Wednesday, January 31st, 2020.

Today is a fortuitous and favorable day.

This intriguing Korean thriller demands your full attention for an entire episode in order to fully understand its plot. Oh Taek (played by Lee Sung-min) is a cab driver who is disconnected from his family, disrespected by his coworkers, and buried in debt due to his own carelessness. When a young serial killer (portrayed by Yoo Yeon-seok) enters his taxi and proposes a long and well-paying trip, the story takes a turn as a downtrodden underdog is thrust into a realm of murder and intrigue. As the story unfolds, it reveals a darker and more complex side than was initially apparent.

Starting on Thursday 1 February, Paramount+ will be available.
