Netflix Announces Over 25 New Movies/TV Shows For October


It’s time to take our first look at what’s coming to Netflix in October. As it’s only early September, the full line-up hasn’t been revealed as yet, but numerous titles have already been scheduled for release throughout the month. We’re expecting the complete list to be announced by the streaming giant in either the third or final week of September, but for now, here’s what we know is going up on the site next month. And it already promises much to enjoy.

First of all, a few titles have yet to be dated, but they’re due in October all the same. The most notable of these is David Fincher’s Mank, his much-anticipated biopic about the creation of Citizen Kane, focusing on the battles between director Orson Welles and writer Herman J. Mankiewicz that plagued the classic’s production.

On the 9th, The Haunting of Bly Manor arrives, the follow-up to the hit 2018 horror series The Haunting of Hill House. Mike Flanagan is once again behind it and the show seems to be taking the American Horror Story approach, bringing back many members of the cast but in fresh roles.

The 16th then brings The Trial of the Chicago 7, Aaron Sorkin’s biopic about the arrest of a group of anti-Vietnam War protesters in 1969. Sacha Baron Cohen, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Eddie Redmayne and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star. Last but not least, October 23rd sees Rebecca land on the site. A remake of the classic Alfred Hitchcock movie by Ben Wheatley, Lily James headlines as a woman who lives in the shadow of her husband’s (played by Armie Hammer) first wife.
