The Story of Us now on Netflix

We’re just a day away from season 2 of The Umbrella Academy hitting Netflix but there are also 5 brand new titles added today to tide you over. Here’s a look at the days new releases and what’s trending in the US right now too.

On the removals front today, we saw The Incredibles 2 removed (both English and Spanish variants) which is the final Pixar title to leave the Netflix US service. The next title on the way out is Christopher Robin in September.

Let’s take a look at some highlights of the day first:


The Story of Us (1999)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director: Rob Reiner
Cast: Bruce Willis, Michelle Pfeiffer, Colleen Rennison, Jake Sandvig
Writer: Alan Zweibel, Jessie Nelson
Runtime: 95 min

Bruce Willis is mainly known for his macho action movies but just before the turn of the millennium, he starred alongside Michelle Pfeiffer in this romantic comedy.

By critics accounts, the movie stinks although it’s aged considerably well with audience scores. Give it a watch and let us know in the comments if you enjoyed it.


Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy (Season 1)

Genre: Animated, Kids
Cast: Jake Foushee, Jason Marnocha, Linsay Rousseau, Joe Zieja, Frank Todaro, Bill Rogers

Netflix has just launched another big kid series set in a popular universe with a well-known brand. This time, we’re following Automus Prime and the Autobots in the battles for their lives and their home against the Decepticons.
