Netflix’s latest Marvel series, The Punisher, is definitely not for the faint of heart. It’s a bloody, gory tale of reawakening and vengeance – in which Frank Castle (Marvel’s answer to Don Pendleton’s Mac Bolan novels) learns that he may have killed off the personnel who murdered his family, but they were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
In fact, their deaths came about as a direct result of unsanctioned CIA black ops in Afghanistan – in which Castle played an unwitting part.
Set in the rural American South during World War II, Dee Rees’ Mudbound is an epic story of two families pitted against one another by a ruthless social hierarchy, yet bound together by the shared farmland of the Mississippi Delta.
Mudbound will be on Netflix on Friday, November 17.
Stranger Things is getting an after show, hosted by Community’s ex-dean, Jim Rash. Beyond Stranger Things will feature guests – co-creators the Duffer Brothers, members of the cast and special surprise guests.
How does that even work on Netflix (I hear you ask)?
After you binge watch all nine episodes of Stranger Things 2, then you can binge watch Beyond Stranger Things. All seven episodes of Beyond Stranger Things premiere on Netflix on October 27th.
Bright follows the story of two LAPD police officers played by Will Smith (Officer Ward) and Joel Edgerton (Officer Jakoby) who form a most unlikely duo working to keep the mean streets of Los Angeles safe from a sinister underworld filled with gang violence and dark forces at work.
Bright will be available in select theaters and on Netflix starting December 22nd, 2017.
It’s a world just like ours – only with orcs and elves (and magic, obviously).
When the mystical equivalent of a nuclear weapon – a magic wand – is discovered, it falls to Officers Daryl Ward (Will Smith) and Nick Jakoby (Joel Edgerton) – the first orc in the LAPD – to deal with the situation.
In a new featurette, Smith and Edgerton discuss their characters and the world they live in.
Bright premieres globally on Netflix on December 22nd.
Stranger Things 2 is just around the (very dark) corner.
On Friday, October 27th, prepare to meet a very ticked off Eleven, a very worried Joyce and some members of a secret government agenicy who are in way over their heads – not to mention for D&D-playing guys who, once again, find the fate of the world in their hands.
