Arrives September 10

Kate isn’t really sci-fi, but its cyberpunk-inspired aesthetic means it should appeal to genre fans. Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kate follows an assassin out to avenge herself after being poisoned.

Some critics have called Kate’s “white lady goes on a killing spree in Tokyo” plot distasteful or straight-up racist, so be aware of that before you decide to watch.
