Netflix continues to feed the appetite for superheroes with "Doctor Strange," starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Marvel Comics' Master of the Mystic Arts. That's the marquee attraction for the month of May but Netflix continues to roll out more original movies, documentaries and continuing series along with the programs it picks up from the studios.
Doctor Strange Official Trailer 2 Netflix debuts the original movie "War Machine," a military satire starring Brad Pitt, and the animated science fiction feature Blame! from Japan. Also: the original documentary "The Keepers," a seven-part true-crime series, and the family-friendly science series "The Mars Generation," about the teenagers aspiring to be the next generation of scientists and engineers working to send the first humans to Mars.
War Machine Official Trailer [HD] Netflix Returning shows include the third and final season of the Netflix original series "Bloodline" and new seasons of "House of Cards," "Sense8," "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Master of None." Netflix also streams the debut seasons of CW drama "Riverdale" and FX thriller "Queen of the South" and adds the fourth and (at least for now) final series of BBC's "Sherlock" with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
Riverdale Official Trailer [HD] Netflix For kids there's "Anne with an E," a new live-action series based on "Anne of Green Gables," and the new animated shows "Spirit: Riding Free" and "All Hail King Julien: Exiled," plus new seasons of the Freeform shows "The Fosters" and "Switched at Birth."
Anne Official Trailer [HD] Netflix And yes, there are movies, too: the indie comedy "Don't Think Twice" from Mike Birbiglia, the boxing drama "Southpaw" with Jake Gyllenhaal, "The Place Beyond the Pines" with Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, and Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" with Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz, just to name a few.
Among the movies leaving May 1 are the original "Jurassic Park" trilogy, Hitchcock's "To Catch a Thief" and the 2005 "Fantastic Four."

My Dad got a Netflix account and he has been kind enough to allow me, his eldest and most movie loving son access to it. I, as a Netflix-Noob, had some things I'd like to have cleared up. First, Did Netflix get rid of the profiles again? The internet talks of one account having seperate profiles for if you have a wife or roomate so you can have your own favorites, ratings, and tastes. Second: Tastes. We've had it for 24 hours now and We've gone through and rated some movies we liked for the suggestions we could get. Today I went into the tastes section and I noticed it put some in for me already. I assume it figured those things out from our highly rated vs. low rated films. My question is this: If I choose my tastes now, would they be subject to change later on? For example, If I choose 'never' for horse genre movies, but then later watch Secretariat, Seabiscuit, and Flicka and rate them 5stars, 5stars, and 4stars, will the tastes I selected change by itself for horse genres? Like does netflix automatically change them to 'Sometimes' or 'Often' for you as your movie habits trend? Thanks Reddit.
