After Life (Season 2)
Netflix Release Date: April 24th
Ricky Gervais is well-known for his sitcoms but in 2019, he came to Netflix with a brand new entry and it crushed all expectations.
Season 2 of After Life will continue Tony’s story who came to a bit of a revelation by the end of season 1. Six new episodes are due for release which will see him struggle with the continuing mourning of his wife and the possibility of his local newspaper being shut down.
The Victims’ Game
Neflix Release Date: April 30th
This is a new Taiwanese movie that employs some big talent for the region.
The thriller is about a forensic investigator who finds his daughter is involved in a serial murder case.
Among the stars confirmed for the movie are Joseph Chang and Tiffany Hsu Star and saw a press event took place in December 2019.
Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045
Netflix Release Date: TBD
Ghost in the Shell is a huge anime hit. The original series aired in the 1990s and although we got a live-action movie starring Scarlett Johansson the series has generally remained untouched.
The first teaser for the series released back in late October 2019 and it’s fair to say the reaction wasn’t too great. Netflix has received a fair bit of flack over the past few years for its live-action anime remakes but in this instance, it’s because Netflix is turning a big anime into a CGI series.
If this isn’t up your street, Netflix does still have plenty of anime on the horizon.
In the year 2045, the world has entered a “Sustainable War" and the former members of Japan’s elite Section 9 are suddenly confronted with a being who possesses tremendous intelligence and physical capabilities.
