Aside from accolades, it would be difficult to find much in common between these two admired filmmakers, whose next movies are coming to streaming services this fall.
First up is Wes Anderson‘s The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar in October (his other 2023 release, Asteroid City, is now streaming on Peacock) starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Kingsley, Dev Patel, and Richard Ayoade. David Fincher‘s The Killer starring Michael Fassbender, Charles Parnell, and Tilda Swinton then comes out this November.
