This article discusses the Apple TV Plus film Raymond & Ray, including the release date, time, plot synopsis, cast, and trailer.

Apple TV Plus has a strategy to face the streaming wars. Instead of going after big IPs like Prime Video or Netflix do, they are investing in signing big actors for their movies and television series. They are after talented and bankable people. (See the entire lineup of The Morning Show) Two of those immensely talented actors that also happen to be recognizable faces to put on a poster are Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke, who previously appeared in two of the most popular Disney Plus series of the year, Moon Knight and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The duo teamed up for Raymond & Ray, a new film for Apple TV Plus, where they play half-brothers that lived under the shadow of a terrible father who passed away recently. If this film wasn’t on your radar, here’s everything you need to know about it.

Apple TV Plus film Raymond & Ray plot synopsis

Here is the official plot synopsis:

“Raymond & Ray follows half-brothers Raymond and Ray who have lived in the shadow of a terrible father. Somehow, they still each have a sense of humor, and his funeral is a chance for them to reinvent themselves. There’s anger, there’s pain, there’s folly, there might be love, and there’s definitely gravedigging.”

Our opinion of the premise

The premise sounds intriguing enough, but I must admit that what sold me on this movie, for better or worse, are the actors. The premise checks all the boxes for this to be an enjoyable ride where we get to see these two power players just sink their teeth into two interesting characters and go for it. McGregor already had a one-man show with Obi-Wan Kenobi earlier this year and Netflix’s Halston last year, and Hawke has had many of those throughout his career. I am now looking forward to seeing them both do a two-man show together!

Raymond & Ray release date

The film will be released globally on Apple TV Plus on Friday, October 21st, at 12 am PT.
