(Movie – available now)

Arguably the best blockbuster of 2021 (sorry Spidey), Denis Villeneuve's magnificent adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune is a sight to behold. For those who are unfamiliar with Dune, this sci-fi epic tells the story of the Atreides family's move to the planet Arrakis, where they have been entrusted with the protection of the galaxy's most precious resource, spice. This angers rival House Harkonnen, who stage an invasion of the planet in an attempt to seize control of its exclusive spice supply. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Timothée Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Zendaya, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgård, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista and Charlotte Rampling, Dune is the kind of large-scale sci-fi fantasy spectacle that rivals The Lord of the Rings in terms of scope.

M. Night Shyamalan's mysterious and macabre series Servant enters its third season after an inexplicable development at the end of season 2, in which [spoiler alert] Leanne has made a sudden reappearance, restoring baby Jericho in the process and beginning a new chapter in the Turner family's clash with the cult.
