The films vary in length and you'll see a cast-member here and there float through another chapter, but they are all (supposedly) standalone films. I say "supposedly" because I have seen three of the five films already, and they all were standalone, but who knows what'll happen in the other two -- maybe all the characters from the three I've seen will show up and have a Battle Royale. (I would so watch Steve McQueen direct a remake of Battle Royale.)
The second part is called Lovers Rock, it premieres on Amazon a week later on November 27th, and I reviewed this chapter right here. This part is also real fucking good. The third part is called Red White and Blue, it premieres a week later on December 4th, it stars Star Wars phenom John Boyega as a police officer in training trying to buck the system from within -- I reviewed this chapter right here and, spoiler alert, it is real fucking good! Sensing a theme?
The last two chapters are called Alex Wheatle and Education, they air on December 11th and 18th respectively, and... I sadly have not seen these. Yet. You best believe I've been refreshing my inbox for screeners. Here is the trailer they just dropped this afternoon:

If you'd like the official descriptions of all five films hit the jump, I'll share them below:
