Netflix just announced their Canadian library will soon get some new ‘hero-themed’ films in April and May. Such films include X-Men: First Class and Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon (you’ll notice Thor is already available):
When Bonnie Tyler sang about holding out for a hero, she could have been referring to any one of the stars featured in our upcoming movies in April and May. Over the coming weeks, the mutants of “X-Men: First Class,” the robots of “Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon,” the Norse-folk of “Thor,” and the shield-holder of “Captain America” will all be making their Netflix debuts in Canada. The fighting bear of “Kung Fu Panda II”, the jouster of “A Knight’s Tale”, the pilot of “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” and the spies of “Charlie’s Angels” will also be joining us this Spring. So enjoy the kicks, explosions, and broken lances … and know that you won’t have to hold out for a hero for much longer.
Other recent additions include the CBC’s Dragon’s Den, various TED Talks, and Freakonomics. Netflix Canada currently costs $7.99/month, and can be viewed via the iOS app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Also, 1080p library support was also added to the new third generation Apple TV.
