“The Crown” Season 6, George C. Wolfe’s “Rustin,” David Fincher’s “The Killer” And More Highlight Netflix’s November Titles
A new sizzle reel for Netflix’s November slate has dropped, revealing a slew of high-profile upcoming films and series bowing in the coming month. One of the biggest titles is the return of The Crown season 6 (November 16), which will explore arguably the darkest, most explosive moment in the monarchy’s history as it centers on the growing relationship between Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki) and Dodi Fayed (Khalid Abdalla) before their tragic car journey in Paris that rocked the entire world.
One of the most highly-anticipated new series coming to the streamer is All The Light We Cannot See (November 2), Steven Knight and Shawn Levy’s adaptation of Anthony Doerr’s best-selling novel about a blind French teenager and a German soldier whose paths collide during World War II.
The sizzle reel offers sneak peeks at new films, several from big-name directors, including David Fincher’s The Killer (November 10), starring Michael Fassbender as an assassin with creeping doubts about his chosen profession. Fincher’s latest premiered at the Venice Film Festival to great reviews, calling his adaptation of Alexis Nolent’s graphic novel a tour de force of filmmaking craft.
Another film set to make a big splash is Nyad (November 3), the first narrative feature from award-winning documentarians Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, which tells the incredible true story of long-distance swimming legend Diana Nyad (Annette Bening), who sought to become the first person to swim the 110-mile open sea journey from Cuba to Florida. The film boasts an incredibly strong cast, including Jodie Foster as Nyad’s longtime best friend and swimming coach, Bonnie Stoll.
One of the streamer’s absolute must-sees is George C. Wolfe’s Rustin (November 17), which centers, at long last, on the civil rights hero Bayard Rustin (a remarkable Colman Domingo), an openly gay activist who is finally getting the spotlight he has long deserved. Rustin was one of the driving forces behind the March on Washington and one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s key allies and sources of strength.
There’s a lot more. Check out Netflix’s November highlight reel below.
