New on Netflix
It's the start of a new month, and you know what that means: Thanksgiving has come early, with a cornucopia of new titles arriving on Netflix as of November 1, and a bunch of other stuff departing for winter hibernation on the same day. There are so many worthy movies and TV shows arriving in the first week of November -- from the classic "The African Queen" to five "Thomas & Friends" titles -- but here are a couple of Netflix Originals to keep an eye on.
"The Crown" Season 1 (Netflix Original)
This highly anticipated Netflix Original drama, based on the play "The Audience" by showrunner Peter Morgan, follows the reign of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) from the 1940s to modern times. "At a time when Britain was recovering from war and her empire was in decline," Netflix teased, "a young woman took the throne as a matter of duty not desire. Prepare for a world full of intrigue and revelations in 'The Crown.'" Make yourself a nice cuppa and settle in to stream the royal drama on November 4.
"The Ivory Game" (Netflix Original)
This documentary might just break your heart, or perhaps galvanize it into action. "Elephants are disappearing at the staggering rate of 1 every 15 minutes," Netflix wrote in the synopsis. "Their deaths are fueled by the illegal ivory trade, a dangerous network of violence and corruption that a brave and dedicated few are daring to dismantle. 'The Ivory Game' exposes the dark world of ivory trafficking from the planes of Africa to the streets of China." To make this doc, filmmakers went under cover for 16 months, infiltrating the corrupt global network of poachers and dealers. You can see the results on November 4.
New Video on Demand, Rental Streaming, and Digital
The highest-grossing R-rated animated film of all time arrives on Digital HD on November 1, with the Blu-ray and DVD to follow on November 8. The digital release comes with a tasty amount of bonus materials, including "Alternate Ending: The Real World Live Action," where the animated food items cross over into the real world and confront their live-action counterparts: Seth Rogen, Michael Cera, and Edward Norton. Classic! There are also five featurettes, a Good Food Gag Reel, and more.
"My Dead Boyfriend"
Anthony Edwards (yep, the one from "ER" and "Top Gun") directed this comedy starring Heather Graham, Kate Moennig, John Corbett and Gina Gershon, arriving in select theaters, and On Demand and Digital HD on November 4. Here's the synopsis: "Mary's life has been defined by a string of temp jobs and a half-hearted attempt to become a writer. But all that changes when she comes home to find her boyfriend dead in front of the TV set. During her misadventures in trying to get rid of his ashes - accidentally becoming the bassist in a rock band; bonding with the dog he left behind; awkward encounters with numerous ex-lovers - Mary discovers that there was much more to her couch potato boyfriend than she ever thought imaginable."
"Outcast" Season 1
Patrick Fugit plays a young man plagued by demonic possessions in this horror series from comic book writer Robert Kirkman ("The Walking Dead"). Appropriately enough, Season 1 arrives on Digital HD on Halloween night, Monday, October 31. Special features include a bonus on the "Comic Book Origins."
