Buzz, Film

Zendaya’s CHALLENGERS and Ryan Gosling’s THE FALL GUY are two of the hit films fresh from the cinema to arrive this month on Rakuten TV, one of Europe’s leading streaming platforms that enables viewers to rent, purchase or to watch films and entertainment content for free without a subscription.

CHALLENGERS, starring one of the biggest stars in the world, Zendaya, is now available to buy and rent from £19.99 and £15.99 respectively. Tennis has never been so exciting in this feature from director Luca Guadagnino as he serves up a tangled love triangle between a former tennis star turned coach (Zendaya) and the two men competing for her attention and the next title on the ATP Challenger tour.

From 3rd June, hit action comedy THE FALL GUY will be available on the platform. Starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Hannah Waddingham, The Fall Guy follows stuntman Colt Seavers (Gosling) working on his ex-girlfriend’s movie but soon finds himself involved in a conspiracy surrounding the film’s lead actor.

Also newly fresh from the cinema and available on Rakuten TV now is the highly anticipated Amy Winehouse biopic BACK TO BLACK. Marisa Abela portrays the life and music of the much-lauded singer, through her journey of adolescence to adulthood and the creation of one of the best-selling albums of our time.

Dystopian action-comedy BOY KILLS WORLD, starring Bill Skarsgard, is another early home release, available on the platform from 10th June. When his family is murdered, Boy, a deaf person with a vibrant imagination, is trained by a mysterious shaman to become an instrument of death, in this action suspense film straight from the cinema.

Also, on Rakuten TV this month new titles available to purchase and rent include dystopian thriller CIVIL WAR, family drama BUTTERFLY TALE, British rom-com THIS TIME NEXT YEAR and Oscar-nominated feature IO CAPITANO.
