The Darkness is now on Netflix in the United States

It’s Tuesday and the first batch of new movies for the week have touched down with a few Netflix debuts plus a couple of favorites returning to the platform. Here’s a look at the 5 new titles on Netflix for June 16th plus we’ll dive into the top 10s for today too!

If you’re a fan of Kevin Bacon, two movies featuring the famed actor just touched down today.

Don’t forget to check out what else is due out later this week in our preview.

Now let’s look at our top picks of the day:

Frost/Nixon (2008)

Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Director: Ron Howard
Cast: Frank Langella, Michael Sheen, Sam Rockwell, Kevin Bacon
Runtime: 122 min

You may not be in the mood for politics right now, we get it. However, this timeless and truly excellent biopic should be watched by all.

It documents the famous interview that took place between David Frost, a British television host and the President of the United States, Richard Nixon.


The Darkness (2016)

Genre: Horror, Thriller
Director: Greg McLean

Horrors are always hit and miss and it appears with The Darkness that it’s certainly a miss. However, that shouldn’t put off the hardcore among you that loves a bad horror.

The movie is about a family that brings back stones from their vacation that ends up haunting them and their home.


Coronavirus, Explained (Season 1 – Episode 2 & 3)

Genre: Documentary

Today, we got another episode in the special limited series from the Vox team about the ongoing pandemic.

In the two new episodes, they look into how vaccines are currently being researched and developed and in the third episode, we look at how families are coping.
