Just over two years after she was first announced as Claire Foy’s successor, Olivia Colman will make her debut as Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown season three. And she’s in good company on Netflix this month.
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are also making their Netflix debuts in Martin Scorsese’s hotly anticipated gangster epic The Irishman.
As are Timothée Chalamet, who can be seen in Shakespeare adaptation The King, Kerry Washington (American Son), and Dolly Parton, whose music is being adapted into an anthology series, Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, released Friday 22nd November.
We’ve also got the first wave of Christmas offerings to look forward to, including animated film Klaus and two cheesy-looking rom-coms Let It Snow and The Knight before Christmas.
