Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse, November 6
Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse is finally landing on Netflix, and it’s a welcome, light-hearted distraction from life’s current circumstances. Following a young Miles Morales who receives superpowers after being bit by a spider (yes, it is kinda just Peter Parker in an alternate universe), the film explores the Spider-verse, which is filled with many other Spider-beings – all dedicated to saving their cities. Stream it from November 6.
The Crown (S4), November 15
The Crown is finally returning for a fourth season, this time introducing Margaret Thatcher and beloved Princess Diana.

The Princess Switch: Switched Again, November 19
Vanessa Hudgens is back for triple trouble with The Princess Switch: Switched Again, this time seeing the actress play three characters. The film will pick up following the events of the first movie, with Duchess Margaret inheriting the throne to Montenaro. Lands on Netflix November 19.
Dolly Parton’s Christmas On The Square, November 22
Gifting us the one thing we never knew we needed for Christmas this year, Netflix has teamed up with country queen Dolly Parton, who’ll be playing a Christmas Angel who visits the ‘Scrooge’ of the village – who plans to sell her small town regardless of the effects it has on the other residents. There will, of course, be musical numbers throughout, so expect a wonderfully cheesy festive vibe to enjoy. As Netflix has described, it’s gonna be a Dolly Holiday. Drops November 22.
The Christmas Chronicles Part 2, November 25
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn are back for a second round of Christmas cheer, and this time, someone is threatening to cancel Christmas forever. What a drama. Expect family-friendly laughs and a heartwarming mission as Santa and his trusty friend Kate work to save Christmas. Streaming from November 25.
White Boy Rick, November 1
Matthew McConaughey stars as Richard Wershe Sr, an undercover informant for the FBI. Based on the true story of Wershe, the movie tells the story of how ‘White Boy Rick’ landed in a bad crowd through his work with the bureau, leading him to take up drug dealing before his eventual conviction. Watch it from November 1.
Sorry To Bother You, November 15
A movie that left many pondering following its release, Sorry To Bother You is a black comedy about telemarketer Cassius Green, who falls into a vicious circle of greed and ‘success’ which leaves him facing the consequences. Can’t have your cake and eat it, too, after all. The comedy received fan acclaim following its release, and has an all-star cast including Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta, Get Out), Omari Hardwick (Power) and Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name). Streaming November 15.
New York Minute, November 1
A huge blast from the past for the ’90s kids.
