Film-wise, medieval Chris Pine vehicle Outlaw King – directed by Hell or High Water‘s David Mackenzie – will be released as will the Coen brothers’ Western anthology The Ballad of Buster Scruggs which has received rave reviews following its festival premiere a few months back.
Then there’s The Other Side of the Wind, a previously unfinished film from Hollywood icon Orson Welles which has been completed and restored for the streaming service – the journey of which has been charted in new documentary They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead, also released this month.
