Timely space-race drama For All Mankind just might propel Apple TV+ into becoming must-see TV. The show kicks off in the late 1960s, a couple of weeks before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin strap themselves into a giant metal tube full of fuel that’s aimed at the moon.
From there, the story takes a sharp turn away from history and examines what the world would look like if the USSR planted its flag on the moon first. Space is obviously a huge part of For All Mankind, but the way creator Ronald D. Moore uses it as a vehicle to tackle topics like family, patriotism, feminism and more is what makes the show worth watching.
Apple TV+ launched this morning. Costing $4.99 per month (or free to anyone who buys a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or Mac), the subscription service brings Apple’s eagerly anticipated original TV shows to anyone who wants to watch them.
But what exactly does the service feature so far? And what’s the timeline for the release of Apple’s other shows? Check out our rundown.
Apple is turning up the hype for the launch of Apple TV+ this morning with a new featurette for its big-budget series See.
The two-minute-long video shows never-before-seen clips of the show along with commentary from its creators and the cast. Early reviews for See were less than enthusiastic, but after seeing some of the behind the scenes shots, we’re cautiously optimistic that it could mature into something great.
Apple is apparently very confident of success for its Apple TV+ series For All Mankind. With a week still to go before Apple launches its streaming TV service, it is gearing up to shoot a second season of the big budget space race show.
Actor Joel Kinnaman revealed that he will be filming the second series simultaneously with the sequel to Suicide Squad. Shooting will commence in a couple of weeks.
Apple finally gave fans a glimpse of one of the first movies that will debut on Apple TV+ when the service launches next month.
Narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor (that guy from 12 Years a Slave and Doctor Strange), The Elephant Queen follows a family of elephants on their year-long journey across Africa as they face threats from poachers and drought. The film earned positive reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival. Based on the first trailer, it looks like it’s stuffed with the type of positive vibes Apple is gunning for.
