In our new releases from PGGB members and partners this week, we're highlighting:
The second season of the series based on the popular video game franchise, Halo. Returning with the galaxy on the brink, John and his team of elite Spartans embark on a journey to find the key to humankind’s salvation, or its extinction — the Halo. The new series charged back on Paramount+ yesterday which had seven Members and four Partners involved in making the show.
Also in television, inspired by Jake Adelstein’s memoir of the same name, Tokyo Vice stars Ansel Elgort as Adelstein, an American living in Japan who becomes a reporter covering the Tokyo Metropolitan police beat. Season two of the series, filmed on location in Tokyo, goes deeper into the city's criminal underworld as Adelstein comes to realise that his life, and the lives of those close to him, are in terrible danger. The first two episodes can be streamed on Max now and three Members worked on this production.
Finally, a British horror thriller film set in the Old Stone Age about a gang of early humans who band together in search of a new land. But when they suspect a malevolent, mystical being is hunting them down, the clan are forced to confront a danger they never envisaged. Out of Darkness, featuring one PGGB Affiliate is in cinemas today.
Take an in-depth look at who's worked on these productions below.
