Sota Fukushi as Ichigo Kurosaki in Bleach

7. Bleach

Another live-action anime adaptation hits Netflix this month with Bleach. The film which made its Japanese debut earlier this year, but is only now hitting North America. While a lot of recent anime adaptations have been poorly received (see: Death Note), this take on the story of a high schooler turned soul reaper seems like it might be one to break that pattern, and is definitely worth a shot for still-hopeful anime fans.

6. Bojack Horseman (Season 5)

BoJack Horseman Comedy Central

Ready for some dark humor and a talking horse? Of course you are! The fifth season of Bojack Horseman comes to Netflix mid-month, promising lots more absurdity and gut-wrenchingly honest comedy about life, love and the cult of celebrity. Bojack Horseman is unlike any other adult animation, and the fifth season promises to continue to mix sadness and hilarity in equal measure.

5. The Land Of Steady Habits

The Land Of Steady Habits Trailer

The Land of Steady Habits premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 12, ahead of the September 14 release date on Netflix - and the trailer looks like it’s going to be everything you'd expect from a Nicole Holofcener film. Centering on a man who finds himself feeling trapped in his affluent life, the film looks at what happens when Anders leaves his wife, his job and his life behind, and tries to find the freedom that he thinks he lacks.

4. Role Models

Paul Rudd in Role Models

Ten years ago, before Paul Rudd was Ant-Man, he was the star of this surprisingly sweet comedy about two energy drink reps who are sentenced to community service in a Big Brother program. Cynical, irresponsible, and a little bit lost, these friends will start to learn a whole lot about themselves when they are forced to take on ‘difficult’ kids - who may have a thing or two to teach them.

3. Scott Pilgrim Vs The World

For those superhero fans who will have watched Black Panther twenty times over since the start of September, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World may be the antidote. The second superhero movie to be added to the Netflix catalog this round, Edgar Wright's video-game inspired flick is all about a musician’s attempts to win the girl by defeating her evil exes - and the unique style made it an instant cult classic.

2. Nappily Ever After

Nappily Ever After

A Netflix Original based on the novel of the same name, Nappily Ever After follows the life of the uber-perfect Violet Jones (Sanaa Lathan), a woman who makes sure that everything (from her job to her relationship) is as perfect as her hair. However, when everything starts to go wrong, her hair becomes a metaphor for her search for herself as she hacks it all off and starts again, finding something a little more authentically "her".

1. A Wrinkle In Time

Another 2018 Disney movie that hits Netflix in time for fall is A Wrinkle In Time, a film that is undeniably visually stunning, but that certainly falls down in other areas. The less than glowing reviews may have been a reason to give this one a miss in cinemas, but now that it’s on Netflix, sit back and enjoy Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of the classic children’s novel.
