This week, Netflix has a mixed bag of drama, comedy, action and horror for the streaming fans. The Rock brings his popcorn action thing to Netflix as well.
Netflix comes up with some amazing exclusive content – but it isn’t only about exclusive content. The website is slowly and surely becoming a great inventory of mainstream films that you can watch – or rewatch if you are into that. Here’s a list of all mainstream films that found their way on the Big N this week:
Fast and Furious 5 (2011)
It’ almost complete – the Fast and Furious collection on Netflix. The fifth, adrenaline rush sequel and instalment in the Fast and Furious franchise hits the streaming screens this week. So, we have another Rock movie, apart from the older ones like Faster and Journey to the Centre of the World 2 on the streaming platform.
Central Intelligence (2016)
Buddy Cop films have been part of Hollywood since a long time, with the most famous being the Lethal Weapon series. The Rock and Kevin Hart decided to give fresh take to buddy cop films with Central Intelligence, a film about a bumbling cop and an accountant trying to unravel a conspiracy that’s concocted by US undercover agents. The film is one of the few that didn’t work, even though it was launched when The Rock was at his peak.
Tom Hanks is God when it comes to portraying courage under fire. All his films have been masterpieces of performances and storytelling – starting from Forrest Gump to one of his latest releases, Sully. Based on true events, the film is about a pilot, Chesley Sullenberger, who made a safe landing and was responsible for stopping a disaster.
Scream 4 (2011)
Netflix owned the Scream franchise with their web series and they are paying ode to the film by streaming content from the original franchise too. The fourth part of the film franchise, Scream 4 will be available on the streaming platform this week. The fourth stars David Arquette, Courtney Cox, Emma Roberts and others. It is one of the first films to star husband wife duo David Arquette and Courtney Cox. Scream 4 was not a critically acclaimed film but was considered better than the third instalment of the Scream franchise.
These are the mainstream films hitting Netflix this week. We hope you enjoy them!
