Netflix Originals:
Netflix has loosened its wallet and poured resources into its original programming, which has branched out into strong documentaries, comedy, series and children's shows. Let's have a look at what's on offer.

October brings new series Ranch (trailer), with stellar cast Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson and Sam Elliott as the Bennett men who ponder life and its complications. The complete first season is available to stream from October 7.

In Haters Back Off (trailer), Colleen Ballinger is Miranda Sings, a self absorbed teenager who uploads Youtube videos of herself singing while waiting for the world to recognise her various talents. Miranda believes she is famous, but nobody else knows it yet.

In 'Midnight Diner' ('Shinya Shokudo' - trailer), this Japanese film set in a late night eatery offers glimpses into the lives of the customers who visit the snack bar in downtown Tokyo.

Original movie Justin Timberlake and the Tennessee kids (trailer). Netflix has the exclusive global rights to distribute this film, which showcases the entertainer’s last two days of his 20/20 Experience World Tour at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Directed by Academy Award winner Jonathan Demme, and featuring performances from his Justin Timberlake's tour, the film is a strong finish for his 134 shows and two years on the road.

Netflix continues to build on well known brands such as Skylanders Academy, which follows a Skylanders team of mish mash heroes with unique elemental skills who travel the universe, while protecting it from chaos and evil. With Peabody and Sherman S3 arriving on the 21st, they team up with alter ego versions of themselves to battle an evil version of Mrs Hughes and fix the course of history! For younger viewers, turn on StoryBots Super Songs: S1, which will appeal to 3-8 year olds. You could also choose World Party S2 which focuses on vocabulary building and the developments of four adorable baby animals.

Let's take a look at some of the movie highlights coming this month to Netflix.

The Siege of Jadotville(trailer), based on true story of a 150-member U.N. battalion defending a Congolese mining town in 1961 during a peacekeeping mission when they are attacked by over 3000 soldiers and mercenaries. Starring Jamie Dornan as Commander Pat Quinlan.

Hilarious Jim Carrey plays Carl Allen in Yes Man (trailer), a man who challenges himself to say 'yes' to every opportunity who comes his way for one year – to channel positive thinking.

In The Island, Lincoln Six Echo (Ewan McGregor) is a survivor of a world catastrophe who is waiting to win a lottery to The Island, the last habitable place on earth. He soon discovers a mystery behind some of the strange rules of his world, and plans an escape. Also starring Scarlett Johansson.
Dive into the often-unseen world of audio dubbing for Hollywood movies in Being George Clooney, and meet the various talented men and women who lend their voices as alternatives in different languages.

Ridiculously outrageous The Hangover (trailer) shows you what could go wrong if you're having too much fun – and gives you a delicious wave of schadenfreude as four best friends unravel their misfortunes.
