In addition to offering a home to some of those movies that couldn’t be released in theaters, the streaming giant continues to add new content – licensed and original – every week.

Last weekend, Netflix welcomed the drama movie Philomena, the neo-noir British movie Croupier, and all seasons of the musical comedy TV series Big Time Rush, along with the Italian romance movie Caught by a Wave, the adult fantasy TV series DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, and the British crime TV series The Irregulars.

Following the steps of the paranormal pseudo-documentary Haunted, released in 2018, Netflix’s Haunted: Latin America is here to share different paranormal stories. Just like the original version, Haunted: Latin America focuses on six horror stories told by those who lived through them and recreated in order to immerse the audience in them. Although the series claims to be all about “true stories”, viewers have disputed the veracity of these, but they are still entertaining whether they are real or not, and the Latinamerican version offers ghost stories, possessed dolls, and even encounters with the devil himself.

Concrete Cowboy


Netflix’s Concrete Cowboy is a Western drama movie directed by Ricky Staub and based on the novel Ghetto Cowboy by Greg Neri, a fictionalization of the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club and urban African-American horse-riding culture in Pennsylvania. While spending the summer in North Philadelphia, a troubled teen named Cole (Caleb McLaughlin) is caught between a life of crime and his estranged father’s (Idris Elba) vibrant urban-cowboy subculture. Also starring are Jharrel Jerome, Byron Bowers, Lorraine Toussaint, and Clifford “Method Man” Smith.
