Netflix are always adept at hyping their content well and creating intriguing trailers. While a focus on coral reefs isn’t usually going to make the average subscriber tell all their friends to sign up, these kind of documentaries are often far more interesting than they originally seem.
Looking like a mix of Blackfish and The Cove, two other sea-based documentaries that ended up being far better than perhaps their original premise signalled, Chasing Coral has a chance to join them as one of those surprisingly riveting documentaries for when you’re in the mood to learn more about the world.
Plus, with Netflix’s sole Oscar thus far coming from a short documentary, it’s no surprise to see them head back to the genre perhaps in an attempt to secure another one.
Chasing Coral arrives on Netflix Friday, July 14.
