Welcome to spooky season. A new month means lots of new releases, and today we saw over 50 new movies and shows added to Netflix in the US alone. Here’s your rundown of all the new releases to hit the service today.
On the whole, Netflix had an overall net loss of titles today. While adding 56 new movies and shows, the service also lost 108 movies and shows.
While we’ll have extended highlights of what’s new over the weekend, we’ll pick out our 3 top picks from today.
Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Drama, Romance
Director: Luca Guadagnino
Cast: Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg
Writer: James Ivory, André Aciman
Runtime: 132 min / 2h 12m
Timothée Chalamet is among the biggest actors in the world right now, but one of his overlooked movies from the past 5 years is the Sony Pictures Classic movie, Call Me By Your Name.
Here’s what you can expect from the LGBTQ movie:
“In the summer of 1983, 17-year-old Elio forms a life-changing bond with his father’s charismatic research assistant Oliver in the Italian countryside.”
The movie received a NYT Critic’s Pick, with critic Manohla Dargis saying the movie is a “ravishment of the senses, though this time there’s a strong narrative tethering all the churning feelings and sensuous surfaces.”
Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Action, Drama, Thriller
Director: Brian Goodman
Cast: Gerard Butler, Jaimie Alexander, Russell Hornsby
Writer: Marc Frydman
Runtime: 95 mins / 1h 35m
We’re featuring Last Seen Alive here because it’s come to Netflix as an SVOD debut today, meaning that this is your first opportunity to watch Last Seen Alive via a streaming service.
Gerard Butler is about a man chasing down leads to find his wife after she seemingly vanished into thin air at a gas station.
Reviews of the action thriller aren’t particularly strong from either critics or audiences but these types of movies have often done well on Netflix.
Rating: PG-13
Language: English
Genre: Drama
Director: Steven Spielberg
Cast: Danny Glover, Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey
Writer: Menno Meyjes, Alice Walker
Runtime: 154 min / 2h 34m
Among Steven Spielberg’s vast catalog of movies, The Color of Purple has often been relegated to the tail end of the director’s best works.
We find that to be unfair, however, as this movie, which was nominated for 11 Oscars, is one of Steven Spielberg’s best works. It’s about a black Southern woman who struggles to finding her identity after suffering abuse from her father and others over four decades.
