Overnight was the premiere of the Paramount+ special, Bring Your Own Brigade. In November 2018, wildfires forced the evacuation of terrified residents from the cities of Malibu and Paradise. Twice-Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Lucy Walker captures the heroism and horror of that unfathomable disaster. Bring Your Own Brigade answers a question humanity can no longer afford to ignore: Why are wildfires increasing in severity around the world, and can anything be done to lessen the staggering death and destruction they cause?
Overnight was the premiere of the feature film Reefa on HBO Max. Israel “Reefa” Hernandez Jr, an 18-year-old Colombian immigrant and talented artist, is spending his last summer in Miami with friends, family and his new girl Frankie before moving to New York City on an art scholarship. While Israel and his friends skateboard the city streets and spray paint the walls of Wynwood, Miami’s graffiti Mecca, anxieties emerge twofold: Israel and his family nervously await their Green Cards while he desperately seeks recognition for his art. On August 6, 2013, as Israel spray paints one last wall which would command immediate respect from his peers, a fatal encounter with a police officer leaves his family and friends devastated, the Miami community outraged, and the country reeling from another case of police brutality.
Overnight was the premiere of the feature film Reminiscence on HBO Max. Hugh Jackman stars as Nick Bannister, a private investigator of the mind who navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients, like Rebecca Ferguson’s Mae, access lost memories.
Overnight was the premiere of the feature film Sweet Girl on Netflix. He lost the love of his life to a pharmaceutical company’s greed. Now his daughter is without a mother, and he’s without justice. For now. It stars Jason Momoa, Isabela Merced, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Amy Brenneman, Adria Arjona, Raza Jaffrey, Justin Bartha, Lex Scott Davis, & Michael Raymond-James.
