Netflix has saved two of its biggest releases of 2017 until last: season two of royal smash The Crown, and a bonafide straight-to-on-demand blockbuster in Will Smith’s Bright.
On top of this, they’re also adding an exciting German-language drama (Dark), a few family classics (Back to the Future trilogy, Love Actually) and some hotly anticipated stand-up specials (Judd Apatow, Dave Chappelle). Plus, in the festive spirit, there’s a couple of
Christmas additions to get excited about (El Camino Christmas).
