Until the situation returns to normal, we’ll be in our bedroom, binge-watching new shows and movies, and pretending we don’t exist.

Emily In Paris on Netflix

Out on: October 2

From the makers of The Devil Wears Prada and Sex And The City, this web series is going to be a treat for every fashion enthusiast. While you can look forward to Lilly J Collin playing a girl from the Midwest providing an American perspective at a Parisian marketing firm, the stunning French vibe of the show is the real deal. Confession: we’re super excited.

The Lie on Amazon Prime Video

Out on: October 6

While you may recall Joey King from the Kissing Booth, her jovial character takes a serious turn in The Lie. The actor plays the role of a teenager who confesses to impulsively killing her best friend. And here’s where the plot thickens: her desperate parents cover up the horrific crime done by their daughter with a web of lies and deception.

Love thriller movies and shows? King’s acting chops will blow you away.

The Right Stuff on Disney+Hotstar

Out on: October 9

Starring Patrick J Adams from Suits, The Right Stuff takes a clear-eyed look at America’s first reality show, when ambitious astronauts and their families became instant celebrities in a competition of money, fame and immortality.

Nocturne on Amazon Prime Video

Out on: October 13

First things first, the movie releases on the 13th (which quite honestly is enough to describe the level of horror). But here’s an insight: a deal between an incredibly talented pianist and a devil, lets the pianist outshine her older sister at a prestigious institution for classical musicians. What follows later in this American supernatural horror film will give you some major chills.

The Undoing on Disney+Hotstar

Out on: October 25

With a cast like Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant, this mini-series is one not to miss. The Undoing follows the life of a therapist as she learns that her husband might be responsible for a widespread disaster. A chasm opens in Grace’s (Nicole Kidman) seemingly perfect life: a violent death, a missing spouse and a chain of terrible revelations.

David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet on Netflix

Out on: October 4

Go on an adventure with David Attenborough, who has visited every continent on the globe, explored the wild places while documenting the living world in all its variety and wonder. A highly personal creation showcasing the 93-year-old’s views of the world, this documentary might just show you what awaits us if we won’t address the problems of our planet.

Clouds on Disney+Hotstar

Out on: October 16

Inspired by a true story of 17-year-old Zach Sobiech from Minnesota, the movie navigates through his senior year of high school in Lakeland and diagnosis of a rare bone cancer. With months to live, Zach wrote the viral hit ‘Clouds’ as a love-filled tribute to his loved ones. The movie is a poignant and beautiful look at the heart-breaking duality of life and a testament to what can happen when you start to live as if each day might be your last.

 

Savage X Fenty Fashion Show Vol. 2 on Amazon Prime Video

Out on: October 2

Our favourite girl boss Rihanna is back with the second edition of her star-studded lingerie fashion show. Artists like Travis Scott, Rosalia, Miguel and Bad Bunny will be performing through the show as Lizzo, Demi Moore, Cara Delevingne, Bella Hadid, Willow Smith, Big Sean, Paris Hilton and more walk down the runway. What’s more? This season’s designs will be put on display virtually for you to shop.

The Trial Of The Chicago 7 on Netflix

Out on: October 16

Love legal drama movies and shows? Watch out for this movie. The Trial Of The Chicago 7 recounts the story of the seven anti-war activists who led their respective movements to Chicago to protest the Democratic National Convention in August 1968—all of whom were charged in March 1969 by the new Nixon Administration with conspiring to cross state lines in order to incite a riot. Listen to us, it’s a serious one but will be totally worth it.

 

Evil Eye on Amazon Prime Video

Out on: October 13

If you loved Bulbul, produced by Anushka Sharma, then here’s another movie in store for you. This time around, our favourite PeeCee and Jason Blum have teamed up to produce this thriller. To sum it up, the movie brings to light a blossoming romance which turns into a terrible nightmare with dark connections. Also, toxic family relations in the mix make it even more intriguing.
