Check out the trailer for Jessica Jones and some of the other highlights for November releases on Netflix. Make sure to keep reading for the full list below.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Season 1 (November 20)
The highly anticipated series Jessica Jones from the Marvel/Netflix team is nearly here. The mega talented Krysten Ritter stars Jessica Jones; a wounded former superhero who is just trying to get by as a private detective in Hell’s Kitchen. In the dark and gritty trailer, Jessica meets Luke Cage; played by Mike Colter (whose own series will debut a year from now). Jessica is on edge and on the run from Killgrave aka The Purple Man. If you haven’t seen Marvel/Netflix’s first collaborative series Daredevil, then you have a couple of weeks to catch up before Jessica Jones premieres on November 20th.
Idris Elba: Mandela, My Dad and Me (November 1)
We all know Idris Elba as the suave and debonair film and television star (who will hopefully be the next James Bond). However, Elba is also an accomplished musician who released an album in preparation for his role as Nelson Mandela in the 2013 film, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. However just as he was preparing for the role, Elba’s father died. This personal documentary takes a look at the making of Elba’s first album as he grapples with the loss of his father while the world mourned the death of the icon, Nelson Mandela.
Anna Karenina (November 12)
This 19th century set film starring Keira Knightley, depicts the tragedy of Russian aristocrat and socialite Anna Karenina, the wife of senior statesman. After having affair with an affluent officer, Count Vronsky, Karenina is ostracized because she dared to break the rules that stifled women during the Victorian era.
Blue Caprice (November 14)
Inspired by the events of the horrific 2002 Beltway sniper attack, Blue Caprice is a story of an abandoned boy who is lured into the clutches of a deadly father figure, played by Isaiah Washington.
