Warrior(Digital Download) Based on the writings of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, WARRIOR is a gritty, action-packed crime drama set during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the second half of the 19th century. The series follows Ah Sahm, a martial arts prodigy who emigrates from China to San Francisco under mysterious circumstances. After proving his worth as a fighter, Ah Sahm becomes a hatchet man for the Hope Wei, one of Chinatown’s most powerful tongs (Chinese organized crime family). Over the course of the season, Ah Sahm crosses boundaries inside and outside Chinatown.
Master of the White Crane Fist (Digital Download) Directed by Guo Jian-yong, who also directed the first two instalments, MASTER OF THE WHITE CRANE FIST is set in ancient China during the late Qing dynasty and tells the story of four constables escorting a criminal crossing paths with a theatre troupe and a mysterious priest, setting off a series of events that will lead to the murder of a constable. Amongst them is the legendary Master of the White Crane Fist, who will unravel the consequences of greed, revenge, betrayal and opium-smuggling.
AVAILABLE JULY 8th Gentleman Jack (Digital Download) Set in the complex, changing world of 1832 Halifax, West Yorkshire, GENTLEMAN JACK focuses on landowner Anne Lister, who is determined to transform the fate of her faded ancestral home, Shibden Hall, by reopening the coal mines and marrying well. The charismatic, single-minded, swashbuckling Lister – who dresses head-to-toe in black and charms her way into high society – has no intention of marrying a man. The story examines Lister’s relationships with her family, servants, tenants and industrial rivals and, most importantly, would-be wife. Based in historical fact, the real-life Anne Lister’s story was recorded in the four million words of her diaries, and the most intimate details of her life, once hidden in a secret code, have been decoded and revealed for the series.
AVAILABLE JULY 15th From the Earth to the Moon (Digital Download) An HBO Original directed by and starring Tom Hanks, FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON covers the early years of the United States' "space race" with the Soviet Union, including the creation of NASA and the decision to send men to the Moon. The series provides an overview of the Mercury and Gemini programs, concentrating on reconstructions of Alan Shepard's pioneering Freedom 7 Mercury flight; Edward H. White's first US spacewalk on Gemini 4, the near-disastrous in-flight failure during Neil Armstrong's and David Scott's Gemini 8 mission; and the successful completion of Gemini with Buzz Aldrin's perfection of extravehicular activity on Gemini 12.
FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON will also be available on Blu-ray starting July 16th featuring remixed audio in Dolby ATMOS. The disc will come with an exclusive INSIDE THE REMASTERING featurette delving into the decision-making process and work put into updating and replacing the previous CG effects.
AVAILABLE JULY 22nd Big Little Lies Season 2 (Digital Download) On the surface, in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, everything seems the same. The mothers continue to dote, the husbands support, the children remain adorable and the houses are just as beautiful. But the night of the school fundraiser changed all that, leaving the community reeling as the “Monterey Five” – Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Renata and Bonnie – bond together to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. The new season explores the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…and the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.
The digital release also includes the behind-the-scenes bonus feature THE LIES REVEALED: A CONVERSATION WITH THE CAST OF BIG LITTLE LIES including cast members Meryl Streep, Shailene Woodley, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Zoe Kravitz and Laura Dern--share laughs, stories and mimosas as they look back at Season 2 of the hit series
AVAILABLE JULY 23rd Leaving Neverland (On Demand) The two-part documentary LEAVING NEVERLAND explores the separate but parallel experiences of two young boys, James “Jimmy” Safechuck, at age ten, and Wade Robson, at age seven, both of whom were befriended by Michael Jackson. They and their families were invited into his wondrous world, entranced by the singer’s fairy-tale existence as his career reached its peak. Through gut-wrenching interviews with Safechuck, now 37, and Robson, now 41, as well as their mothers, wives and siblings, LEAVING NEVERLAND crafts a portrait of sustained abuse, exploring the complicated feelings that led both men to confront their experiences after both had a young son of their own.
AVAILABLE JULY 29th Ramy Youssef: Feelings (Digital Download) In his first HBO stand-up comedy special, Ramy Youssef shares candid anecdotes about his life as an Egyptian-American comedian, writer, actor and director. He shares his thoughts on a number of subjects, including: the best day of the week to pray, his father’s immigration story and connection to Donald Trump, his complicated love for Lebron James, whether dogs are really man’s best friend, and how sometimes he wishes he had never had sex. The exclusive presentation was taped in front of a live audience at the landmark Chicago Cultural Center.
