‘Cowboy Bebop’ And ‘Masters Of The Universe: Revelations’ Top Our Netflix Picks In November

November is, shockingly, just around the corner. And for Netflix, that means a bevy of holiday offerings noted in the list below with an appropriate gift emoji. Of course, our focus here at Comicon isn’t really holiday movie related, so our picks for the coming month regard the two key genre titles joining the service.

First up is the long-awaited live-action adaptation of Cowboy BebopJohn Cho stars as ne’er-do-well interplanetary bounty hunter Spike Spiegel, who bumbles his way into a plot which could jeopardize the entire solar system. Along for the ride are fellow bounty hunters Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and supercorgi Ein. The teaser released the other day suggests the program will literally wear its cosplay leanings on its sleeve, which could make it one of the most interesting anime adaptations yet. It launches November 19th.

Masters of the Universe: Revelations returns November 23rd to resolve its massive Part 1 cliffhanger. Despite some controversy about the way it used He-Man, we found Part 1 to be a pleasing mix of the old Filmmation cartoon, the live action film, and even some of the early action figure mythology. Beyond that, though, it gave the characters deeper personalities and built to a pretty shocking final moment. We can’t wait to see how it really ends.

Also debuting in November 3rd is The Harder They Fall. The all-Black western stars Jonathan Majors as real-life figure Nat Love. When he learns an old enemy is getting released from prison, he sets out to assemble an Avengers-esque team of Black Western legends to finally get revenge. The featurette and trailer released at Netflix’s Tundum event got us excited for this one, in part because Black figures of the Old West never get their due and because of a cast which includes Majors, Idris Elba, Zazie Beetz, Regina King, and Delroy Lindo as Bass Reeves.

Of course, these are just our picks for the upcoming month. Take a look at everything coming to and leaving Netflix in November for your own must-watch film or series.
