Colin in Black and White (new on Netflix)

Army of Thieves is a tenuously related prequel to Army of the Dead directed by Matthias Schweighöfer, who appeared as safecracker Ludwig Dieter in the original. He reprises his role in this heist movie that also stars Nathalie Emmanuel and Guz Khan. It premieres today alongside Colin in Black and White, a miniseries directed by Ava Duvernay that focuses on the high school years of activist and football player Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick narrates, while Nick Offerman and Mary-Louise Parker play his parents. Laurent Lafitte directs and stars (alongside Karin Viard and Vincent Macaigne) in Dear Mother, a comedy based on a play by Sébastien Thiery in which a man finds that his heart has stopped — but he hasn’t died.

On Nov. 1, you can catch the Dutch family film The Claus Family, but the real meat of the new additions on the 1st is all of the new-old movies now available. Highlights there include all of the Bourne movies, Forrest Gump, Hustlers, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Shutter Island and the first two Crocodile Dundee movies. On Nov. 3 you can stream The Harder They Fall, the Western starring Idris Elba. Other films being added to the service this week include A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (Nov. 2) and Richard Jewell (Nov. 3).
