Outer Range puts Josh Brolin in a supernatural mystery

At first glance, Amazon Prime Video‘s upcoming series Outer Range looks like a response to Yellowstone. Much like Yellowstone‘s Kevin Costner, Outer Range has a genuine movie star, Josh Brolin, who portrays a rancher fighting to keep control of his land. However, the latest trailer for the show demonstrates that it’s going to go to even darker places than Yellowstone — and there may be a supernatural mystery at the heart of the ranch.

In the trailer, Royal Abbott (Brolin) is approached by an enigmatic drifter named Autumn (Imogen Poots). She feels a strong connection to Royal’s ranch that he finds alarming. But when he finds an inexplicable void on his land, Royal’s world turns upside down. And suddenly, his enemies will do anything to take his land from him.

Here’s the full description from Prime Video:

Outer Range centers on Royal Abbott (Josh Brolin), a rancher fighting for his land and family, who discovers an unfathomable mystery at the edge of Wyoming’s wilderness. A thrilling fable with hints of wry humor and supernatural mystery, Outer Range examines how we grapple with the unknown. At the onset of the series, the Abbotts are coping with the disappearance of daughter-in-law Rebecca. They are pushed further to the brink when the Tillersons (the gaudy owners of the neighboring profit-driven ranch) make a play for their land.

An untimely death in the community sets off a chain of tension-filled events, and seemingly small-town, soil-bound troubles come to a head with the arrival of a mysterious black void in the Abbotts’ west pasture. Wild revelations unfold as Royal fights to protect his family; through his eyes, we begin to see how time contains secrets held in the past and unsettling mysteries foreshadowed.”

Outer Range will premiere on Prime Video on April 15.

Astronauts walk in space in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Every great streaming service has a bevy of worthy movies for you to check out. Unfortunately, given the fractured nature of the streaming landscape, it can be nearly impossible to keep track of what titles are on what service.

Prime Video has an ideal combination of archived titles and originals, and one of those archived titles is well worth checking out before it leaves the service. 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the most important sci-fi movies ever made. Here are three reasons you should check it out before the movie leaves Prime Video at the end of November.

Upload season 3’s ending, explained

Amazon Prime Video original series Upload could not have come at a better time. As artificial intelligence (AI) technology, robots, virtual reality, and other high-tech innovations dominate the conversation in real life, Upload provides an interesting, albeit parodied version of what the future could look like, not just for the living, but for the dead as well.

When the second season ended, Nathan (Robbie Amell) managed to move his consciousness from the Lakeview digital afterlife into a clone body to navigate the real world. The reason? To investigate details about his death, which he now knows was at the hands of deceased (and uploaded) billionaire David Choak (William B. Davis). The third season of the Amazon Prime Video original series picks up right where fans left off.
