New year, New Netflix! That’s how the saying goes, right? Check out some highlights of what’s coming to the streaming site this month.
The first of each month brings an onslaught of new selections, some old favourites include: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) – starring Johnny Depp, adapted by Tim Burton, Catch Me If You Can (2002) – starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio, Free Willy (1993), American Beauty (1999) and more.
As for fresh new content, Netflix added the first season of the reality show The Circle this month, and while it’s not quite a rival of Big Brother, this show has potential to grow in popularity.
The Circle features 7 players who must meet and interact with each other using only social media. You present the best version of yourself, or in some cases someone else (catfish alert), and create alliances with other players in order to keep yourself from getting kicked out of the circle. Last person standing, wins!
