The best movies and shows coming to Netflix in October

Check out our highlights of what’s coming to Netflix in October, followed by the full release schedule.

Army of Thieves

Available October 29

Of all the questions we had about Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, “what’s the deal with that safecracker guy?” wasn’t high on the list (if it was even on the list). Nevertheless, here we are, and in Snyder’s infinite wisdom now we have a prequel about safecracking… Army of Thieves sees German safecracker Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer who also directs) lead a group of aspiring thieves on a top-secret heist during the early stages of the zombie apocalypse.

180 episodes of awesomeness finally make their way to Netflix. Really, is there anything more to say?!

Till Death

Available October 1

Sometimes you just need a trashy thriller, and this Megan Fox-starring effort—about a wife left in a terrible predicament by her douchey husband—is exactly that. If this sounds like a bit of you, then don’t read anything more about it, maybe don’t even watch the trailer (even though it’s directly below these words you are reading).

Diana: The Musical

Available October 1

“Flashbulbs fill the air…” are the first lyrics sung in the trailer below, setting exactly the tone you’d expect from a musical about the People’s Princess. Look, you know this is going to explode onto the Netflix most-watched charts, and you may be as grimly fascinated to see this as we are.

The Guilty

Available October 1

Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) casts Jake Gyllenhaal in his remake of a Danish thriller about a demoted police officer assigned to a call dispatch desk. The reluctant desk jockey finds himself in a more complex situation than a mere call centre shift, though, when a call about a kidnapping turns this into a tense one-location thriller.

Colin in Black & White

Available October 29

The youth of activist athlete Colin Kaepernick is explored in Ava DuVernay’s limited series. Teenage Colin navigates coming-of-age and racial complexitie, growing up as a biracial kid with adopted parents (Mary-Louise Parker and Nick Offerman).

Classic titles

Coming to Netflix this month: the immaculately engineered nightmare fuel of The Lighthouse; sci-fi slasher Jason X; tense gaslighting horror The Invisible Man; Tom Hardy’s hilarious starring role in Venom; action classic John Wick; Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody; and more—including the probably not-classic Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.
