Netflix announces soon-to-be available titles for Instant Watch! Includes MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS!!!
Howdy do, everyone, Papa Vinyard here.
A bunch of June's new additions to Netflix's Instantly Watch service have already gone up, but we have a list of a few more that are coming up over the course of the month. I have only seen SILENT HILL: REVELATION (which I enjoyed, despite the critical thrashing, although not nearly as much as Christophe Gans' original) and (of course) THE AVENGERS, but I've heard good things about Snoop's REINCARNATED, Barry Levinson's THE BAY, and, surprisingly enough, KATY PERRY: PART OF ME. I've never heard of FAMILY WEEKEND; I guess it came out in limited release this past March, and the trailer makes it look like a kooky, upper-class version of that Jamie Lee Curtis/Kevin Pollak classic, HOUSE ARREST. And we all know about the across-the-board critical darling and monster-box-office-smash-megahit movie, MADEA'S WITNESS PROTECTION. Can't wait to re-visit that gem!
Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection (2012) – Comedy
Tyler Perry, Eugene Levy, Romeo, Denise Richards, Doris Roberts, Tom Arnold
After a Wall Street Ponzi scheme sends George Needleman and his family into witness protection, Madea's home becomes a haven ... of sorts. But with her tough love and sass, they just might outsmart the mob and change everyone's life for the better.
Reincarnated (2012) – Documentary
In a cloud of smoke, Vice magazine's Andy Capper follows rapper Snoop Dogg on a pilgrimage to Jamaica, where he experiences a spiritual and commercial transformation, reemerging as Snoop Lion, a reggae artist.
Silent Hill: Revelation (2012) – Horror
Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington, Carrie-Anne Moss, Sean Bean, Radha Mitchell, Malcolm McDowell
Haunted by shocking nightmares and unsettled by her father's disappearance just before her 18th birthday, Heather goes on the hunt for him -- and discovers a disturbing truth about her own identity in this suspenseful sequel to the hit horror flick.
The Bay (2012) – Horror
Nansi Aluka, Christopher Denham, Stephen Kunken, Frank Deal, Kether Donohue, Kristen Connolly
From director Barry Levinson comes this gruesome tale of ecological horror that follows unfolding events in a seaside Maryland town as a deadly menace infests the bay and turns residents into hosts for mutant parasites.
Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012) – Documentary
Pop star Katy Perry is captured on and offstage in this revealing diary of her California Dreams Tour, featuring her Los Angeles performances. The film shares the air of glamour and fun that radiates from this talented and unique artist.
Family Weekend (2013) – Comedy
Kristin Chenoweth, Matthew Modine, Olesya Rulin, Joey King, Shirley Jones, Eddie Hassell
After her preoccupied parents fail to attend her jump-rope competition, 16-year-old Emily Smith-Dungy decides to hold them hostage until they change their attitude. But her plan hits a snag when the police step in.
The Avengers (2012) – Action & Adventure
Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner
An all-star lineup of superheroes -- including Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk and Captain America -- team up to save the world from certain doom. Working under the authority of S.H.I.E.L.D., can our heroes keep the planet at peace?
How cool is it that, while other companies' contracts with Netflix seem to be expiring as fast as Netflix can announce intriguing original projects, Marvel's stuff seems to consistently get on there, and stay on there, about a year after the theatrical release? I wanted to watch CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER a few weeks back, and was relieved to see that it was still on there after a whole year. It's not like they need that Blu-ray money to break even; nice to see their comfort with getting their product out there without being stingy.
