Here’s What’s About To Hit Netflix (Alright, Alright, Alright)By: Chris Crum - March 21, 2014
As you know, content comes and goes on Netflix. Each week, we’re bringing you a list of titles that you’ll be able to stream in the U.S. in the coming days.
If you were disappointed with last week’s list (but hey, that was a great pic of Harrison Ford, no?), you might find this week’s a bit more interesting. It includes the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom (the only of the nominees for the category that wasn’t already available), as well as some McConaughey (Mud), Mandela and Jobs. Oh, and of course, Mad Men.
Here’s what’s about to hit Netflix.
