Disney +, the video-on-demand service of the big-eared firm, is back in April with a busy schedule! After the arrival of the “Star” category on February 23, a category offering in particular films and series for an older audience (Alien, American Dad), the catalog is growing even more. This month will be mainly marked by the release of already popular productions.
Worn by Jennifer Lawrence, Red Sparrow is a spy thriller released in 2018 and directed by Francis Lawrence ( Hunger Games, Kings, I am a legend ) which lands in the Disney + Star catalog. A young ballerina with a broken career is forcibly recruited by the Russian secret services. Using seduction and manipulation as weapons, she must take charge of her first target, an undercover CIA agent in Russia. The cast also counts on the presence of Joel Edgerton ( Warrior, The Magnificent Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty ), Matthias Schoenaerts ( Suite Française, The Danish Girl) and Charlotte Rampling ( Broadchurch, Les Damnés ).
ATLANTA (S1 AND S2)
First broadcast on FX in the United States, the popular Atlanta series was born out of the imagination of Donald Glover, also known by the stage name Childish Gambino. Earn and Alfred, two cousins who reside in Atlanta, try to make their way through the difficult world of rap in Atlanta while facing racial, economic and even parental issues. If the third season is still expected from viewers, the first two will soon be available on the SVOD platform. Alongside Donald Glover ( Community ) in the lead role, we find actors Brian Tyree Henry ( Bullet Train, Undercover ) Lakeith Stanfield (Crown Heights, Uncut Gems, Get Out ) and Zazie Beetz (Joker, Deadpool 2, Invincible ).
