This week’s Netflix Streaming releases kicks off today with the Sklar Brothers’ newest stand-up special, “What Are We Talking About.” The special was filmed in Madison, WI, and features the twins riffing on sports, mullets and airport etiquette.
Arriving tomorrow is a film from this year: “Bullet,” an action thriller starring Danny Trejo, as well as Jonathan Banks of “Breaking Bad” and “Community” fame.
A pair of 2013 releases arrive later in the week, starting with the acclaimed British independent film “The Selfish Giant,” an adaptation of an Oscar Wilde short story set in modern-day northern England. The film was screened at Cannes and was nominated for the Bafta for Best British Film.
The second release is a somewhat less acclaimed British film: “Diana” starring Naomi Watts as the late Princess of Wales. The film’s reviews in the UK were so scathing that the film wasn’t even screened in American theaters. Decide for yourself on Netflix today. “Diana” also stars Naveen Andrews, and Cas Anvar as Dodi Fayed.
To learn more about this week’s additional releases, including a new season of the reality show “How It’s Made” and the 2006 film “Freedomland,” view the slideshow above. Keep track of the latest Netflix Streaming releases by subscribing to the Netflix Instant Examiner today.
