This article is about the Apple TV Plus Raymond & Ray Movie, including release date, time, plot synopsis, cast, and trailer.
Apple TV Plus has a strategy to deal with the streaming wars. Instead of going after big IPs like Prime Video or Netflix, they invest in signing big players for their movies and TV series. They are looking for talented and bankable people. (See the full range of Morning Spectacle) Two such immensely talented actors who are also recognizable faces to put on a poster are Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke, who have previously starred in two of the year’s most popular Disney Plus series, Moon Knight and Obi Wan Kenobi.
The duo teamed up to Raymond and Ray, a new film for Apple TV Plus, where they play half-brothers who lived in the shadow of a terrible father who died recently. If this movie wasn’t on your radar, here’s everything you need to know about it.
Apple TV Plus Movie Plot Synopsis Raymond & Ray
Here is the official plot synopsis:
“Raymond & Ray follows half-brothers Raymond and Ray who lived in the shadow of a terrible father. Somehow, they each still have a sense of humor, and his funeral is a chance for them to reinvent themselves. There’s anger, there’s pain, there’s madness, maybe there’s love, and there’s definitely burial excavations.
Our opinion on the principle
The premise sounds pretty intriguing, but I have to admit, what sold me on this movie, for better or worse, were the actors. The premise ticks all the boxes for it to be an enjoyable ride where we get to see these two power players sink their teeth into two interesting characters and go for it. McGregor once had a one-man show with Obi Wan Kenobi earlier this year and Netflix Halston last year, and Hawke has had many throughout his career. I can’t wait to see them both do a two-man show together!

The film will be released worldwide on Apple TV Plus on Friday, October 21 at 12 p.m. PT.
