‘Mudbound’ Finally Hits Netflix Next Month, Plus Music and Film Documentaries

Mary J. Blige enters the Oscar race next month when "Mudbound" hits Netflix, along with some tearjerkers, documentaries, and classic comedies.


Fall is upon us, and with it a fresh new crop of Netflix movies to curl up with when the weather starts to turn. Next month’s most exciting addition to the streaming service is “Mudbound,” the Southern World Ward II epic from up-and-comer-turned-force-to-be-reckoned-with Dee Rees. Netflix sealed the biggest deal of this year’s Sundance Film Festival when it paid a whopping $12.5 million for “Mudbound,” setting a high bar for the drama. Balancing out the heavier fare are classic comedies like “Men In Black” and “Scary Movie,” as well as “Field of Dreams” and “42” for the baseball lovers.

The fresh crop also includes a bevy of critically acclaimed documentaries, such as “Eventual Salvation,” “Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary,” and “Cuba and the Cameraman.” Jim Carrey’s creative process gets a deep dive in “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond,” which includes never-before-seen behind the scenes footage from Milos Forman’s “The Man on the Moon.”

Looking for a cry? Netflix has you covered, there, with the addition of titles like “The Pursuit of Happyness,” and “The Reader.” Maybe this year’s Thanksgiving won’t be so stressful after all.
