We’ve been seeing Warner Brothers movies come to Netflix five years after their theatrical dates and that continues today with the release of the 2017 hit movie adapting the Stephen King novel, It.
The movie sees Bill Skarsgård play the chilling role of Pennywise and also features a familiar face if you’re a fan of Stranger Things. The movie sees kids taking the investigation into a killer clown into their own hands after numerous kidnappings.
It would later go on to get a sequel which should be on Netflix in a few years going by current trends.
SPRIGGAN (Season 1)
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure
Cast: Mariya Ise, Chiaki Kobayashi, Kenji Hamada
Based on the manga that was released over 30 years ago, this new Netflix adaptation comes after a number of major adaptations over the years and early reviews says it may be the best yet.
Here’s the official rundown of what you can expect if you do decide to give the new anime series consisting of 6 episodes a whirl:
“An ancient civilization’s relics on Earth hold dangerous powers — it’s up to ARCAM Corporation’s Spriggan agents to keep them out of the wrong hands.”
Alchemy of Souls (Season 1 – New Episodes Weekly)
Genre: K-Drama, Romance, Period Drama
Cast: Lee Jae-wook, Jung So-min, Hwang Min-hyun, Yu Jun-sang, Shin Seung-ho, Oh Na-ra
If you love your big K-drama period dramas, Alchemy of Souls promises to be the biggest new release of the year.
Here’s what you can expect:
“A powerful sorceress in a blind woman’s body encounters a man from a prestigious family, who wants her help to change his destiny.”
2 new episodes of the show will drop every week with the new two set to release on Netflix on June 25th and June 26th.
