A young rookie cop (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) in Boston tries to take down a powerful crime boss by infiltrating the mob. Meanwhile, another young cop (played by Matt Damon) also goes undercover to take down the mob. As they get caught up in living a double life, fellow cops have discovered that one of them has been tipping off the gangsters.

9. 101 Dalmatians
Evil clothing manufacturer Cruella de Vil (played by Glenn Close) kidnaps Dalmatian puppies in London so she can make a coat from their fur. Their parents (Pongo and Perdita), along with a few neighborhood dogs, use a special communication method known as the Twilight Bark to come to their rescue.
FYI, the Twilight Bark is when dogs exchange howls and barks across long distances during the early evening hours. In the movie, these barks and howls were used to let the other dogs know when and where the stolen puppies had been spotted.

Coming to Netflix June 5.
This Netflix original series is back! The streaming service canceled Sense8 early last June, but consumer demand drove Netflix to resurrect the show–at least for a series finale, anyway. “Improbably, unforeseeably, your love has brought ‘Sense8’ back to life,” show creator Lana Wachowski wrote in a letter to fans last June. “It is my great pleasure as well as Netflix’s (believe me, they love the show as much as we do but the numbers have always been challenging) to announce that there will be another two-hour special released next year.”
The official trailer for the series finale can be seen on YouTube.
Coming to Netflix June 8.
