Netflix this week plans to add 18 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including 10 originals.
The new titles will include season four of The Crown, Netflix’s original series about the life of Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) with Princess Diana (Emma Corrin) stirring the pot in this installment; season four of The Boss Baby: Back In Business, a Netflix original animated kids series based on the hit movie about a wisecracking enfant terrible; and We Are the Champions, a Netflix original documentary about unusual competitions around the world with Rainn Wilson (The Office) as host.
Also notable: V For Vendetta. Hugo Weaving (and a Guy Fawkes mask) stars as a revolutionary terrorist in the future who plans to overthrow a fascist government. The 2006 film, which is beautifully photographed, stirred some controversy as well for seemingly embracing violence as a means of protest. But you be the judge. V For Vendetta also stars Natalie Portman as the revolutionary’s reluctant sidekick.
