The Trial of Chicago 7

Aaron Sorkin's legal drama features Emmy winners Jeremy Strong and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II alongside Sacha Baron Cohen, Frank Langella, Michael Keaton, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eddie Redmayne, and others.

The official synopsis says: "What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organisers of the protest—including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale—were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history."

The Trial of Chicago 7 will be screened in select cinemas across the US from 25 September, after which it will be made available for streaming on Netflix on 16 October.

The Haunting of Bly Manor

A new trailer of the follow-up to the successful and critically acclaimed horror series The Haunting of Hill Housewas recently shared by Netflix.

Bly Manor derives its title from the setting of Henry James' 1898 novella The Turn of the Screw, which features the story of two orphans (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Amelie Smith) looked after by a young governess (Victoria Pedretti), who also acts as the narrator. Besides Pedretti and Thomas, Siegel, and Jackson-Cohen are also returning for Bly Manor in new roles.

The second instalment of the horror anthology will premiere on 9 October.

Eros Now will release Unkahee on 26 September.
