SKY Fiber subscribers will soon find themselves deeply immersed in strange but alluring new worlds as HBO brings a line-up of thought-provoking and masterfully–crafted originals via HBO GO, including “Lovecraft Country,” Ridley Scott’s “Raised by Wolves,” and “The Third Day.”
Those who have read Matt Ruff’s novel “Lovecraft Country” will be pleased to find out that HBO has adapted this into a television series with the same title. Much like the book, the story follows Atticus Freeman as he searches for his missing father in a racially segregated America. Together with his childhood friend and uncle, they experience hardships and strange occurrences along their journey. This series, which is now available for streaming on HBO GO, is executive produced by commercially successful film directors Jordan Peele and J.J Abrams.
Award-winning master of sci-fi Ridley Scott brings to life another dystopian universe as HBO GO lets subscribers stream the highly anticipated “Raised by Wolves” this September. Watch how two androids try to raise children on a desolate planet by equipping them with the skills of a warrior to fend off the threat of humanity and religion that once ravaged the Earth.
The series also marks the television directorial debut of Scott, who is known for famous sci-fi films such as “Blade Runner,” “Alien,” “Prometheus,” and “The Martian.”
In “The Third Day,” viewers will be swept away by powerhouse performances from Academy Award-nominated actors Jude Law and Naomi Harris as they portray characters dealing with pain, grief, and confusion. The story takes place on a mysterious island, which holds the power to blur the lines between fantasy and reality. SKY Fiber subscribers can stream this intriguing drama on HBO GO starting September 15.
Aside from being committed to producing Asian Original shows, HBO Asia takes it up a notch higher by also featuring critically-acclaimed Asian films such as “The Garden of Evening Mists,” which garnered a total of 9 nominations at the 56th Golden Horse Awards. The story focuses on a woman who seeks solace in the highlands after her traumatic World War 2 experience in Malaya.
