Netflix Added 7 New Movies/TV Shows Today

Bright: Samurai Soul

Netflix‘s content library is in a constant state of flux, but with the platform banking on original content more than ever before as the streaming wars continue to heat up with new competitors entering the fray on a regular basis, in-house exclusives are arriving almost daily.

Today is no different, and you won’t be able to find five of the seven debutants anywhere else. The live-action sequel may remain mired in development hell, but Netflix’s increased propensity for using anime to expand its franchises brings Bright: Samurai Soul, a prequel spinoff to Will Smith and David Ayer’s 2017 blockbuster.

The Movies That Made Us is back for a third season of nostalgia-tinged explorations into some classic titles, which is one of four documentaries to have pitched up today, and you can check out the full list of incomers below.
