Get Ready for Summer on Netflix US
Summertime = Movies. Well, on Netflix, anytime = movies...but we do see about a 20% increase in movie watching by our members in the US around Memorial Day weekend. This Friday, you'll be able to enjoy Adam Sandler's new movie, The Do Over. It's our second Sandler comedy, starring him and David Spade as old friends who reunite at their 25th high school reunion for the ultimate mulligan: wiping the slate clean by faking their deaths and it's available exclusively on Netflix this Friday all around the world.
Many of our long time U.S. members might recognize that summer is a time when we refresh a large part of our film catalogue. This year is no exception, but there is one difference; a batch of non-exclusive titles are leaving while what is arriving is exclusive to Netflix among streaming subscription video services.
Here are some of the great and varied selection of films coming to our U.S. service in the next few months:
From September onwards, Netflix will become the exclusive US pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar. And we're excited to be bringing you new and exclusive Netflix Original movies including Mascots from the master of low-key comedy Christopher Guest (Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind) and War Machine, from acclaimed Australian director David Michod and starring Brad Pitt, in the serio-comic tale of the U.S. military adventure in Afghanistan.
