If only he could get out of the business that easily.

Action-filled June on FOX+

In 2028, there is a members-only hospital for criminals operating on the penthouse of an abandoned building in Los Angeles. It is run by the Nurse, a grizzled, no-nonsense healer played by Jodi Foster, whose performance in the film was deemed “Oscar-worthy” by critics.

As riots rocked the city, a group of criminals sought shelter and medical treatment at Hotel Artemis. With a couple of bank robbers, a French assassin, an arms dealer, and an injured cop in the Nurse’s hands, the night only got more intense as the Wolf King came knocking with life-threatening injuries. The only thing holding the peace were the rules, which include “No killing of other guests.” But even with all their injuries, things could only get violent from here, and they did.

Adrift (June 30)

Action-filled June on FOX+

This movie is based on the true story of Tami Oldham and Richard Sharp — two experienced sailors were hired to bring a luxury yacht to San Diego from Tahiti but encountered one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history en route. In the aftermath of the hurricane, Tami found the boat in ruins and Richard overboard and badly injured. She managed to get Richard on the boat, but now they faced an open ocean with a broken radio and a damaged boat, no hope of rescue. “A needle in a blue haystack.” What followed was a journey of survival as Tami mustered up enough strength and determination to find a way to land or even just be found.
