Director: Roar Uthaug
Cast: Ine Marie Wilmann, Kim Falck, Mads Sjøgård Pettersen
Writer: Espen Aukan, Roar Uthaug
Runtime: 101 min / 1h 41m

Of the new Netflix Originals releasing today, Troll is amongst the biggest international movies that Netflix has released this year, employing the talents of renowned director Roar Uthaug (Tomb Raider) to bring Norweigen folklore to life.

Here’s what you can expect from the new monster movie:

“When an explosion in the Norwegian mountains awakens an ancient troll, officials appoint a fearless paleontologist to stop it from wreaking deadly havoc.”

Frances Ha (2013)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director: Noah Baumbach
Cast: Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner, Adam Driver
Writer: Noah Baumbach, Greta Gerwig
Runtime: 86 min / 1h 26m

Relicensed from IFC Films today is Frances Ha (another movie that Netflix didn’t announce ahead of time), which received a coveted NYT Critic’s Pick when it was released a decade ago.

Aspiring dancer Frances meanders through the thrills and humiliations of her late twenties in New York City alongside her best friend, Sophie.

Baumbach, Gerwig, and Driver will all be reuniting later on Netflix this month with the addition of White Noise set to premiere on December 30th.

Cake (2014)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Drama
Director: Daniel Barnz
Cast: Jennifer Aniston, Adriana Barraza, Anna Kendrick
Writer: Patrick Tobin
Runtime: 102 min / 1h 42m

Returning to Netflix unexpectedly today is Cake, the 2014 movie starring Jennifer Aniston, Sam Worthington (who will soon be reprising his role as Jake Sully in Avatar 2) and Anna Kendrick.

The independent is perhaps one of Aniston’s best roles in her career, where she plays the role of Claire, who suffers from loss and develops a complicated obsession with a woman who took her own life.

At the time of release, the Times in the UK stated that Aniston should’ve been nominated for an award for her performance. In addition, AWFJ stated that it was “Raw, painful and utterly absorbing, Cake is a powerful and moving study of women truly on the verge.”
