Netflix are gifting us plenty of other reasons to cancel those social engagements and stay in on the sofa in November.
Timothee Chalamet as Henry V in The King, Olivia Colman’s highly anticipated debut in The Crown and Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro reuniting for The Irishman are just three highlights coming to the streaming service.
Here’s our pick of the films and series arriving in November.
The King – November 1
Loosely based on Shakespeare’s plays, Timothee Chalamet plays Hal, a wayward prince and reluctant heir to the throne, who is crowned Henry V after his bullying father dies. The young monarch must then navigate the politics of the palace, as well as the international chaos left by his father. The film also stars Robert Pattinson as the Dauphin, Joel Edgerton as Falstaff, and Lily-Rose Depp as Catherine de Valois.
Atypical Series 3 – November 1
The third series of the coming-of-age comedy centred around Sam Gardner (Keir Gilchrist), a teenage boy on the autism spectrum, will feature Will And Grace actor Eric McCormack and Roseanne actress Sarr Gilbert. After the second series saw Sam battle his parents, who eventually let him apply to college, the new episodes will finally see him at university.
Maradona In Mexico – November 13
Hot on the heels of Asif Kapadia’s documentary about the football great, this new docu-series will follow his journey to Culiacan, the heart of the Sinaloa Cartel, to save the local team, the Dorados, and maybe himself, too.
Klaus – November 15
Netflix’s first original animated film follows a young Scandinavian postman named Jesper, voiced by Jason Schwartzman, who is tasked with taking the postal service to an isolated town, where he meets a mysterious, white-bearded toymaker named Klaus (JK Simmons). Blending traditional hand-drawn animation techniques with cutting-edge technology, the film also features the voice talents of Rashida Jones, Joan Cusack and Norm Macdonald.
Earthquake Bird – November 15
