There are a lot of films showcased at a variety of different film festivals. And, oftentimes, one or two stand out and garner plenty of attention before a wide release. One such film out of the most recent Sundance Film Festival is Cha Cha Real Smooth, a festival darling that's finally going to see the light of day for a broader audience next month.
Another month means another batch of new content for Apple TV+. This time around we've got a brand new season of a popular drama, a brand new special featuring some of the world's favorite animated kids, and, of course, new documentaries. So let's take a look at what's new in May 2022.
March came and went, bringing with it at least one major new release in the form of Apple TV+'s grand family opera, Pachinko. This month might not be as epic, all things considered, but there are certainly some noteworthy new additions being added to Apple's video streaming library this month.
Some months are going to be slower than others when it comes to new content available on Apple TV+. The good news for folks who are looking for something fresh to dive into, this is not a slow month. And here you'll get a quick look at what's being added to the digital library in March.
It has been over a year since we last heard about the upcoming international drama Pachinko, which is set in not only South Korea, but also Japan and the United States. To that end, the series is also told across three languages, and while it has grand ambitions about its scale, it's still meant to be an intimate story.
CODA is one of the best films available to watch on Apple TV+. It has also picked up quite a few award nominations and wins since its debut in 2021. Of course, earning several different Oscar nominations really helps it stand out. And just in case you're someone who is swayed by those types of nominations, and you feel okay going out to a theater, you'll be able to see the film on the big screen, at no cost to you, for a limited time.
Here's a breakdown of the new films and TV series premiering on Apple TV+ throughout February 2022.
The Sky Is Everywhere was first picked up as a film adaptation by Apple TV+ and A24 way back in 2019. Over the course of 2020, we saw the cast fill out. But it wouldn't be until January of 2022 that we finally got a first look at the upcoming film adaptation of the popular young adult novel.
There was a stretch of time there, over the last year or so, where it felt like Apple was signing exclusive multi-year deals with so many different people on a regular basis. That simmered down a bit, especially recently. But the company isn't quite done with that particular plan of attack for securing films, series, and documentaries for Apple TV+.
In May of 2021, it was announced that A24 and Apple TV+ had sealed the deal to bring The Tragedy of Macbeth to the streaming service at some point in the future. It stars Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, and it's finally streaming on Apple TV+. Which means it's about time we get to see a behind the scenes look at how it all came together.
Beanie Babies were quite the craze back in the day, especially in the United States. It's a story that's absolutely ripe for a story, especially as a feature film or series. Luckily for Apple TV+ subscribers, there will be one of the former streaming on the service at some point in the future.
Sidney Poitier is an iconic film actor and director, who was also an ambassador. He lived a full life, but ultimately passed away at the age of 94 on January 6, 2022. So it's not surprising at all that he's getting a documentary about his life and achievements.
