Netflix will have an offering of ten action titles in March. Predominately movies, these new additions include the Riddick film trilogy starring Vin Diesel as well as the Kick-Ass sequel.
The real jewel of the crown is Luther: The Fallen Sun which sees Idris Elba return as the brilliant and troubled investigator tackling a new case. It’s a film this time, not a series so we’ll only have a limited amount of time with this iconic character, but we’re sure this movie will be a ride for fans of the franchise.
As for action series on offer, it’s an animated fare. If you’re a fan of Inuyasha waiting for more seasons to drop on Netflix, you’re in luck! Seasons 4 and 5 will be arriving toward the end of the month. Fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can anticipate season 2’s land on Friday, March 31.
Keep reading for the full list of action titles.
