A list of new Netflix Original Films that will be coming our way soon
We have tried to add a little bit something for everyone in this of Netflix Original Films. If you enjoy our list please pass it on to a friend.
Okja is the new film from one of my favourite directors, South Korean visionary Bong Ho-Joon. He is the man responsible for South Korean classics such as The Host, Memories Of Murder, and Mother, and more recently, Snowpiercer)
Okja tells the story of a young girl who will do anything she can to stop a huge multi-nation company kidnapping her best friend, Okja.
This looks to be kiddie friendly (I am not 100% though). Okja is a large mystical looking animal that would remind you of Falkor from 1984 children’s classic The Neverending Story
The film stars Tilda Swinton (who also worked with director Bong Ho-Joon in Snowpiercer), other cast members include the awesome Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Swiss Army Man), Steven Yeun (Glenn from The Walking Dead), and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Nocturnal Animals),
For those of you into South Korean cinema, you’ll be happy to hear that Okja also stars one of Bong Ho-Joon’s regulars, Hee-Bong Byun who starred in classics Memories Of Murder and The Host
Gareth Evans, the mastermind action maestro behind The Raid franchise is back with Apostle.
Apostle stars Dan Stevens (The Guest, Downton Abbey) and Michael Sheen (The Damned United, Unthinkable, Frost and Nison). The story focuses on a man who travels to a remote island to save his sister from a religious cult.
Not much is known about the film but I can confirm that Netflix has acquired the rights for worldwide distribution.
I have always been a fan of Gareth Eans. Although I am HUUUGE fan of The Raid movies I am looking forward to seeing Evans enter new filmmaking territory
Filming is due to start April 2017, so we’re probably looking at 2018 release. More to follow on Apostle as it is announced.
Quirky comedy starring Brad Pitt that looks into America’s involvement in the war in Afghanistan.
War Machine is based on a non-fiction book called The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, by author Michael Hastings.
The trailer looks like it could be a lot of fun. I love Brad Pitt in these sort of roles – I think the man can do comedy very well.
The movie is directed byDavid Michôd, the director behind one of favourite crime family movies, Australian film, Animal Kingdom (which has just been made into an impressive American TV show).
The director of Suicide Squad, End Of Watch and Fury is back with an all-star cast in Bright.
Will Smith (Concussion, The Pursuit Of Happiness) Joel Edgerton (The Gift, Black Mass, Warrior) and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The girl With The Dragon Tattoo) lead the cast.
The plot reminds me of the 1988 sci-fi classic Alien Nation. The story is set in a world where monsters and humans live side by side in society.
Badass (and probably smart-ass) cop played by Will Smith must work together with an Orc to find a powerful weapon that everyone is prepared to die for.
The westernised version of the classic Japanese Manga is almost upon us and therefore makes it onto this list of Netflix Original Films. I honestly don’t have high hopes for the movie but I am a fan of the director and I think Willem Dafoe was perfectly cast as the voice of the insanely creepy, Ryuk
Some people ain’t fond of the idea – in fact, it’s getting hit pretty hard on YouTube – here are the current stats that the trailer holds Vs
Adam Wingard, one-half of the directing duo behind indie hits like You’re Next and The Guest tackles this one on his lonesome.
Death Note follows a young high school student who finds a book that has unbelievable dark powers. The book has the power to kill anyone by writing his/her name in the book.It ain’t’ long before the darkness overtakes this teenager and he starts to use the book to become more and more powerful.
It has been a while since we have had a good antichrist movie in the style of, The Omen. Well, we did have the remake of The Omen, but we will pretend that doesn’t exist.
Directed Eli Craig (Zombieland, Tucker & Dale Vs Evil) Little Evil follows a newly married man who starts to believe that the 6-year-old son of the woman he just married is the antichrist. That’s one way to put a strain a new relationship.
Little Evil stars Evangeline Lilly (The Hurt Locker, Ant-Man, Real Steal) Adam Scott (Parks And Recreation, The Aviator, Step Brother) and Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption, Highlander, Starship Troopers)
