Treason

Done with The Recruit? Here's another espionage thriller. This five-parter stars Charlie Cox as an MI6 agent caught up in an assassination plot as well as a triangle love affair involving his wife (Oona Chaplin) and a Russian spy (Olga Kurylenko). And you thought Daredevil’s relationships with Elektra and She-Hulk were complicated.

Unchained Love

 

Can’t enough of Dylang Wang in a period drama? Here’s another: He plays a eunuch embroiled in palace intrigue — and a forbidden relationship with the emperor’s tribute lady. Naughty, naughty. The 36-part serial also stars Peter Ho and Zeng Li.

Ambulance

This is one of Michael Bay’s best movies in years and no one (well, not enough of them) came to see it in the cinemas. What gives? Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II play adoptive siblings-turned-bank robbers fleeing Johnny Law in the titular vehicle all over LA. Bay blows up a lot of shit as usual, with most of the immersive insanity shot with drones. Watch our interviews with Bay and the Ambulance cast here:
