Look out for these upcoming titles on Netflix
All that may be worth watching...
Ever since the video streaming service, Netflix entered the market, it has slowly but surely changed the very dynamics of how viewers consume television shows and movies. Years ago, the only way to watch a movie was to go to the theaters or buy a DVD. But now, a huge movie library is available with in a click's reach.
However, with the growing library on Netflix, it is not always something worth watching. This does depend in part with the viewers interests but the content is also important. Read on to find a small list of upcoming titles that are bound to keep you engaged until you finish them. There is something for everyone here, anime series for anime lovers and fans of the crime genre and even for action fans.
Moreover, all these titles are a Netflix original production, so you won't see these on any other platform.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile
This is the show that the Big Bang Theory's star, Jim Parsons who played Sheldon Cooper, moved to. And its quite a contrast. Unlike the comedic Big Bang Theory, Extremely Wicked is a movie about a deplorable serial killer. What makes it unique is that the story is told through the eyes of a survivor.
Like Netflix's biggest hit, Birdbox, this movie is also shaping up to cause a stir. The movie features Zac Efron as Ted Bundy. Ted was a real-life serial killer who was on the loose in the mid seventies. He committed heinous crimes which include the rape and murder of about 30 women.
It will release in late 2019.
Ghost in the Shell
The hit original anime was recently adapted in live action featuring Scarlett Johansson. However, it wasn't well received. In fact, most anime adapted as live action tend to fare very poorly. This time, it is re releasing as a full anime series with great visuals. We don't know much about the upcoming series but we do know that it will chronicle the return of Major Motoko Kusanagi.
It will release sometime next year.
Cowboy Bebop will be getting a live-action debut on Netflix. Take the news with a grain of salt because live-action adaptations of anime generally don;t fare well. Its been a while since Netflix has been trying to produce a good live-action adaptation. It is yet to succeed. But Netflix is continuing to take its chances.
The original anime follows a band of space bounty hunters as they travel around the galaxy to earn their bread. The show featured amazing action and memorable characters. Cowboy Bebop has a lot of potential. But it all depends on Netflix making the most of it.
Cowboy Bebop's release date is unannounced as of yet.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
The classic title is getting a revamp as a puppet exclusive remake. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will feature the story of three Gelflings as they start a rebellion against evil Skeksis to save their homes. It marks a return to the world of Thra.
A reminder of gangster movies of old. Martin Scorsese, at the helm as director is bringing classic feel to Netflix. The story is based on best seller novel by Charles Brandt. It will be packed with pulsing action.
The Irishman will be out this year.
A chef is forced to become an assassin in this crime fighter series. The 10-part series will take place in San Francisco's Chinatown district, which is ruled by ancient triads. The show will star Iko Uwais and Byron Mann (star of Altered Carbon).
Release date to be announced.
