As always, you can find an expanded list of what’s new on Netflix right here at What’s on Netflix with daily roundups. If you missed yesterday’s four new releases, you missed out on a couple of great titles including the new Sarah Cooper special and the new animated Greek gods series.

Without further ado, let’s look at the new movies on Netflix for today.

Featuring Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-man 2) as a roadie for the famous metal band, he’s sent on a vital mission that could mean the show doesn’t go on.
