In Movies & TV

An eclectic mix of movies and television is coming to Netflix next month.

What's new on Netflix in March 2019

It's the big screen's biggest weekend – and yet it may be the industry's small screen monolith that may come away the winner.

Thanks to Netflix's "Roma," for the first time, a streaming service has not only a place amongst the Best Picture nominees but a strong chance of taking the top spot above its theatrical adversaries. It would mark a massive shift in Hollywood, validating the Big Red Streaming Monolith as an accepted part of the business of cinema and officially bringing them to the table with the old titans of the industry. And to do it all with a black-and-white foreign film with not a single star? It'd be almost as mind-blowing as, well, "Roma" itself. (Really, you should watch it; it's on ... well, duh.)

But if you thought Netflix would take the weekend off to celebrate its potential success, well, your brain must be buffering.

The streaming service recently announced its new arrivals for the month of March – and per usual, the originals are where you'll find the real excitement. Woody Harrelson and Kevin Costner will team up to hunt Bonnie and Clyde in the outlaw actioner "The Highwaymen," while on the opposite side of the law, a freshly de-Batmanned Ben Affleck will lead a bunch of Special Forces operatives on a heist in J.C. Chandor's "Triple Frontier."

And if neither of those kickstart your heart, Netflix will play home sweet home to the Motley Crue biopic "The Dirt" next month. Meanwhile, on the TV side of things, get ready for new seasons of "Queer Eye" and "Arrested Development," as well as the premiere of the edgy David Fincher-produced animated anthology "Love, Death & Robots."

As for outside material coming into Netflix, uh, there's far less to be excited about. Sure, there's some solid selections, from famed Oscar plays ("Apollo 13," "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," "Winter's Bone," "The Hurt Locker," "Doubt" and more) to beloved romances ("Emma," "The Notebook") and cult hits ("Wet Hot American Summer," "Tucker and Dale vs. Evil"). But there's far less than usual.

According to ScreenCrush's Matt Singer, there's 27 movies and television shows coming to Netflix from other studios ... as compared to 60 originals. Indeed, while the streaming service is changing the Oscars, Netflix itself is changing too as its rival studios get their own versions, and therefore their own movies, together. So that ratio is only going to get steeper.

The future? It's going to be paying for several streaming services, with many of them bundled together into packages offered under one company's umbrella. So yeah ... basically cable again.
