In a Valley of Violence now on Netflix US

Happy Friday and Netflix have once again added another 10 brand new titles today for your enjoyment over the weekend. Continuing its 2020 trend of knocking it out of the park on movies. Here’s a breakdown of what’s new on Netflix & what’s trending for October 16th, 2020. 

As a reminder, we do daily recaps here on What’s on Netflix for what’s new plus you can find an expanded list of the new releases on our hub page too. We’ve also just updated our guide to what else is coming out on Netflix throughout October 2020 which now includes the final season of Agents of SHIELD.

Let’s take a look at a couple of highlights for today then move into the full lists:

In a Valley of Violence (2016)

Genre: Action, Western
Director: Ti West
Cast: Ethan Hawke, John Travolta, Taissa Farmiga, James Ransone
Writer: Ti West
Runtime: 104 min

Today saw the release of a smaller Western that didn’t get the attention it deserved when it released four years ago.

With strong review scores, this is an excellent movie to hunker down to this weekend. Here’s what you can expect:

“After a quiet drifter is met with violence and bullying in a small town, he finds himself enmeshed in a vengeful struggle with the local marshal.”

The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)

Genre: Drama, History, Thriller
Director: Aaron Sorkin
Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Alex Sharp, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jeremy Strong
Writer: Aaron Sorkin (screenplay)
Runtime: 129 min

The big Netflix Original movie release of this week is one of the pickups Netflix made from Paramount who weren’t able to get this movie out in the cinemas for obvious reasons.

Featuring an absolutely stellar cast, the well-reviewed movie is about the violent clash that took place at the Democratic National Convention and the subsequent trial.
