We've seen the Fab Five in the United States, but imagine how great the show would be in Japan! Well, you don't have to imagine any longer, because Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming), Karamo Brown (Culture), and Tan France (Fashion are heading over to Tokyo to offer their expertise to four heroes who need to turn their lives around. Of course, they'll do this all while experiencing Japanese cuisine, fashion, design, grooming and culture firsthand. Sounds amazing to us!

In the tradition of Outlaw King comes yet another Netflix Original historical epic in The King, directed by Australia's own David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) and co-written by and starring Joel Edgerton (Bright). The film follows Hal (Timothée Chalamet), a wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, who must step up and become King Henry V after the death of his father. To do this, he'll need the help of his closest friend, John Falstaff (Edgerton) an alcoholic knight with a few problems of his own.
