A big cast list joins the Coen brothers in their first big Netflix project. The upcoming movie sees James Franco, David Krumholtz, Liam Neeson, Clancy Brown and Zoe Kazan all-star in this Western that’s a little different from others in the genre. The movie is also set to be a comedy and will be split into six parts across two and a bit hours. The movie will be narrated by the Coen brothers and look at six individuals navigating their way in the wild west.

The reviews for the movie have already been released and they’re pretty darn good. This is our movie highlight of November.

The series will follow Sandy Kominsky who had earlier success as an actor in Hollywood but now spends his days being a revered Hollywood acting coach. We’ve yet to see any actual footage of the series yet but there are several interviews with the lead actor, Michael Douglas.

The next big title to release under the Netflix Original banner is She-Ra and the Princess of Power. The series will follow a similar story to the original whereby we follow a 16 year old orphan who turns into the Princess of Power after finding a magic sword.

Are you ready to watch some new B movies with the gang? Well, Netflix has announced it’ll release another batch of episodes on Thanksgiving this year. The series which got a reboot a year or so ago went over with fans fantastically.
