Recommend to Netflix
Not everything is on Netflix and they’re the first ones to admit it. Fret not, if a title you’re looking for isn’t there, you can let Netflix know that you want it. Tucked away in their Help Centre is a little page that lets you recommend TV shows or movies for Netflix to add to their service.
You access this either through a web browser at help.netflix.com/titlerequest or by clicking on “Help” in your account menu. Personally, I’ve previously requested for Kimetsu No Yaiba (Demon Slayer) and for all the three Rurouni Kenshin live actions movies. Kimetsu No Yaiba is actually available to watch now, so I’m crossing my fingers that the live action Rurouni Kenshin movies come next!

Netflix, WWE announces interactive film Escape The Undertaker
Premiering in October
Since the release of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, Netflix has invested more and more in interactive content. In fact, besides its growing library of interactive content, the company is also working on its own video games for the future. Amid the rise of interactive content, Netflix is also working on a new collaboration to bolster its library. Netflix and WWE are releasing an interactive movie featuring The Undertaker.
Escape The Undertaker is an interactive Halloween film from both WWE Studios and Netflix. As the title indicates, the film stars Mark Calloway, otherwise known for his in-ring persona The Undertaker. Viewers have to guide the members of The New Day, a faction consisting of WWE stars Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods, to… well, escape The Undertaker. The fearsome legend invited The New Day to his mansion. Unbeknownst to the trio, The Undertaker’s mansion is filled with traps which The New Day have to escape from.
WWE Studios is no stranger to cinematic experiences. Before the age of Netflix, WWE produced and released action and horror films featuring their superstars including Steve Austin, John Cena, and Kane. In recent history, the company’s more creative arm got a breath of fresh air with last year’s cinematic matches. Because of the pandemic, WWE held more cinematic matches to compensate for the pandemic’s limitations. Coincidentally, one of those matches also included The Undertaker’s final match before retiring.
Escape The Undertaker premiers on Netflix on October 5.
