Arnold Schwarzenegger takes on one last job in trailer for Netflix’s FUBAR

Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator) has been one of the most influential movie stars of the last 40 years. Now, Schwarzenegger is heading to television to star in his first scripted series, Netflix’s FUBAR.

FUBAR is an action comedy series that follows Schwarzenegger’s Luke, a retired CIA operative pulled back into the business to extract another operative and dangerous weapon from a secret location. Upon arrival, Luke discovers that his daughter, Emma (Top Gun: Maverick’s Monica Barbaro), is also a CIA operative, and that she hid her occupation from her father. Luke must set aside his preconceived notions and team up with his daughter to complete the mission.

Schwarzenegger, an executive producer on FUBAR, returns to his action-comedy roots, a genre made famous by the actor in films like True Lies and The Last Action Hero. When Netflix released the first teaser, Schwarzenegger said, “FUBAR will kick your ass and make you laugh – and not just for two hours. You get a whole season. It’s been a joy to work with [FUBAR creator] Nick [Santora], Skydance, and Netflix to give my fans exactly what they’ve been waiting for.”

Besides Schwarzenegger and Barbaro, FUBAR stars Jay Baruchel (How to Train Your Dragon), Andy Buckley (The Office), Milan Carter (Warped!), Aparna Brielle (A.P. Bio), Fabiana Udenio (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery), Fortune Feimster (Velma), Gabriel Luna (The Last of Us), Barbara Eve Harris (Prison Break), and Travis Van Winkle (The Last Ship).

Octavia Spencer in Ma.

October tends to be the best time of the year to revisit horror movies, and Netflix is no exception. This month, the streamer has added director Tate Taylor's 2019 horror flick, Ma, which has already become one of the top films on the most popular movies on Netflix.

Ma is not a typical horror story, and the lead character, played by Octavia Spencer, is not some random slasher villain. There's a method to Ma's madness, and it makes the film one of the most unique horror movies in years. But if you need more convincing, here are three reasons why you should watch Ma on Netflix.

Top Boy is one of Netflix’s most underrated crime shows. Here’s why you should watch it
Ashley Walters and Kane Robinson in Top Boy.

Ten years ago, the acclaimed British crime drama, Top Boy, came to a premature end despite winning praise from critics and fans alike. The series could have remained in the TV graveyard if it hadn't had such a prominent fan in the rapper known as Drake. Because he was so passionate about the show, Drake purchased the rights to Top Boy, reunited the key cast members, and convinced Netflix to revive the series in 2019. That move continues to pay dividends this month with the arrival of Top Boy season 3 (not counting the two seasons of the original series), and the show has premiered on Netflix's top 10 most popular TV shows.

Although this is the final chapter of Top Boy, it also represents the best chance to go back and watch the show from beginning to end. The first two seasons are also on Netflix as Top Boy: Summerhouse. And while the previous incarnation of the show does provide a lot of insight into the revival series, viewers will get a complete experience from the three seasons on Netflix. In other words, this may be your next favorite crime show to binge if you haven't started it already. If you need more convincing, these are the three reasons to watch Top Boy on Netflix.

Jamie Bell and Channing Tatum in The Eagle.

Thanks to the constantly updated list of the most popular movies on Netflix, the 2011 historical adventure film, The Eagle, is currently enjoying a resurgence. Judging by the film's lackluster box office at the time of its release, the vast majority of subscribers could really use three reasons why they should watch The Eagle on Netflix. But it's already gotten a head start by landing on Netflix's movie chart.

Director Kevin Macdonald and screenwriter Jeremy Brock adapted the film from Rosemary Sutcliff''s novel, The Eagle of the Ninth. The story takes place in the second century A.D., 20 years after the famous disappearance of the Ninth Legion somewhere in Britain. The leader of the Ninth was the father of Marcus Flavius Aquila (Channing Tatum), and his family has suffered a significant loss of status since then. To reclaim his family's lost honor, Marcus resolves to investigate the Ninth's fate and retrieve the eagle standard that was flown by his father's men.
