Netflix declares “Out with the old, in with the new!” – the latest & greatest

Netflix

A five year deal with EPIX is set to expire at the end of the month and with it, goes some big budget movies including Hunger Games: Catching Fire, World War Z and Transformers: Age of Extinction. This really isn’t too big of a deal because the streaming giant is also gaining some others:

We also have some great family films coming your way, including Minions, Hotel Transylvania 2, and Home through arrangements with Sony Pictures Animation, Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation. Starting next year, we will be the exclusive US pay TV home of the latest theatrical movies from the The Walt Disney Company, including Pixar, Lucasfilm and Marvel movies. The majority of these films will arrive on Netflix faster than traditional arrangements had previously allowed.

There’s also a bunch of original content that’s out now and releasing by the end of the year. Narcos, which released all 10 episodes this Friday, August 28th, is the latest series to catch my eye. Right out of the gate, the story grabs you with the narration of one of the DEA agents, Steve Murphy (played by Boyd Holbrook who sounds eerily like Johnny Depp from Blow). However, the real star is the man himself, Pablo Escobar, brought to life by Wagner Moura, a well known Brazilian actor, star of the immensely successful Elite Squad movies.

So what’s coming this fall?

With Bob and DavidThen without a release date, but set as 2015 is With Bob and David starring Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and David Cross (Mr Show, Arrested Development)

So you see? Dry your tears. You won’t even miss Transformers.

As a writer, actor, and avid reader, there are certain artists who resonate with me on a very personal level. Robert Altman is one of them. From M*A*S*H* to Gosford Park, Robert Altman’s ability to capture an audience like no other. His passion for truth and realism is tough to match these days. He is a legend in the business and one to be studied. Read More →
