Luke Cage, Easy, Tangerine, Amanda Knox, Narcos (Season 2)and ARQ among highlights on Netflix
At the end of the month (30 September) Marvel's Luke Cage gets his own series starring Mike Colter (who you will recognise from Jessica Jones). Adapted from a comic dating back to the 70s, it tells the story of a man who after a sabotaged experiment is left with super strength and impenetrable skin. He becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. Rosaria Dawson also appears as Claire Temple.
Also in TV, Mumblecore filmmaker Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes the Stairs, Drinking Buddies) has been handed his own 8-part anthology series, Easy, which begins on 22 September. This comedy drama brings together eight stand-alone stories set in the city of Chicago with appearances from Orlando Bloom, Marc Maron, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Malin Akerman and many more.
In film, one of the best independent films of last year, Tangerine, proves what you can achieve on a shoe-string budget. Director Sean Baker shot his energetic Christmas tale of love, revenge and life on the streets of LA on 3 iPhone 5s' using a clip-on anamorphic lens and the end result is gorgeous. Available from 1 September.
Sci-fi thriller ARQ from Tony Elliott (one of the Orphan Black writers) appears on 16 September. It's set in an apocalyptic world where the only technology that can save humanity causes a time loop. It stars Robbie Amell and Rachael Taylor.
The Amanda Knox case is explored in a real-crime documentary of the same name by Rod Blackhurst and Brian McGinn (30 September). And the team behind Oscar nominated Virunga have made a short documentary called The White Helmets (16 September) which follows three rescue workers carrying out important and dangerous work across Aleppo, Syria and Turkey.
