Benedict Cumberbatch and Rachel Brosnahan in The CourierCheck out the new DVDs, Blu-rays and streaming shows (Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, Sundance Now, BritBox, Apple TV+, Acorn TV and more) coming out this week, including The Courier starring Benedict Cumberbatch, and The Mustang starring Matthias Schoenaerts. ~Alexandra Heilbron

The Courier – Unassuming British businessman Greville Wynne (Benedict Cumberbatch) is recruited into one of the greatest international conflicts in history. At the behest of the UK’s MI-6 and a CIA operative (Rachel Brosnahan), he forms a covert, dangerous partnership with Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky in an effort to provide crucial intelligence needed to prevent a nuclear confrontation and defuse the Cuban Missile Crisis. Available June 1 on DVD/Blu-ray/Digital/VOD.

Sweet Tooth – Ten years ago, “The Great Crumble” wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrids — babies born part human, part animal. Unsure if hybrids are the cause or result of the virus, many humans fear and hunt them. After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, a sheltered hybrid deer-boy named Gus (Christian Convery) unexpectedly befriends a wandering loner (Nonso Anozie). Together they set out on an extraordinary adventure across what’s left of America in search of answers. But their story is full of unexpected allies and enemies, and Gus quickly learns the lush, dangerous world outside the forest is more complex than he ever could have imagined. Debuts on Netflix June 4.

The Mustang – Roman (Matthias Schoenaerts), a convict in a rural Nevada prison who struggles to escape his violent past, is required to participate in an “outdoor maintenance” program as part of his state-mandated social rehabilitation. Spotted by a no-nonsense veteran trainer (Bruce Dern) and helped by an outgoing fellow inmate and trick rider (Jason Mitchell), Roman is accepted into the selective wild horse training section of the program, where he finds his own humanity in gentling an especially unbreakable mustang. Debuts on Netflix June 1.

Crooked House – Agatha Christie’s most twisted tale is adapted for the screen by Julian Fellowes of Downton Abbey fame. Suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a wealthy patriarch are investigated by spy-turned-private-detective Charles Hayward (Max Irons), who is lured by his former lover to catch her grandfather’s murderer before Scotland Yard exposes dark family secrets. On the sprawling estate, Hayward encounters three generations of the dynasty, including a theater actress (Gillian Anderson), the old man’s widow 50 years his junior (Christina Hendricks), and the family matriarch Lady Edith de Haviland (Glenn Close). Debuts on Netflix June 1.
