Challengers
From visionary filmmaker Luca Guadagnino, Challengers stars Zendaya as Tashi Duncan, a former tennis prodigy turned coach and a force of nature who makes no apologies for her game on and off the court. Married to a champion on a losing streak (Mike Faist), Tashi's strategy for her husband's redemption takes a surprising turn when he must face off against the washed-up Patrick (Josh O'Connor) his former best friend and Tashi's former boyfriend. As their pasts and presents collide, and tensions run high, Tashi must ask herself, what will it cost to win. To prepare for her role, Zendaya spent three months with pro tennis player turned coach, Brad Gilbert.

Boy Kills World
Bill Skarsgard stars as "Boy" who vows revenge after his family is murdered by Hilda Van Der Koy (Famke Janssen), the deranged matriarch of a corrupt post apocalyptic dynasty that left the boy orphaned, deaf, and voiceless. Driven by his inner voice, one which he co-opted from his favorite childhood video game, Boy trains with a mysterious shaman (Ruhian) to become an instrument of death and is set loose on the eve of the annual culling of dissidents. Bedlam ensues as Boy commits bloody martial arts mayhem, inciting wrath of carnage and blood-letting. As he tries to get his bearings in this delirious realm, Boy soon falls in with a desperate resistance group, all the while bickering with the apparent ghost of his rebellious little sister.

Fallout (Prime Video)
The video game adaption genre continues unabated. This time, the post-apocalyptic adventure game gets a sequential story retread from the creators of Westworld and, so far, it looks like it has the goods. Expect a The Last of Us meets Silo vibe with some actual comedy (that's a compliment). The series will be set within the same continuity as the video game franchise but will be an original story. Executive producer Todd Howard said he wanted to avoid adapting the video games.
