In the Line of Fire – Picture: Columbia Pictures

Three new releases just touched down on Netflix in the United States today. There’s a mixture of new titles but don’t worry if there’s nothing for you, there’s a bunch more coming tomorrow. 

Over 90 movies and TV shows are set to depart Netflix tomorrow. There are tons of movies worth watching but if we had to pick three, we’d suggest you give The Social Network a rewatch, binge through the British series Toast of London, and for the kids, The Wild Thornberrys Movie is a superb watch nearly 20 years on.

The removals from Netflix today included:

  • Casino Royale
  • Full Out
  • Quantum of Solace
  • Stranger than Fiction
  • The Eichmann Show

As there are only three titles, we’ll give each a run-through below.
