New Releases on Netflix Canada (18th August 2017)

It’s time to see all the new Netflix additions in Canada over the past 7 days and I’m going to be filling in for Alex this week while he’s away on vacation. There have been superb new additions this week so let’s get started with your highlights.

Starting with the biggest and most ambitious Netflix Original series yet, The Defenders season 1 is finally streaming on Netflix. The Marvel series which pulls together all of the heroes who have all now had their initial solo outings to team up against one common enemy, the Hand who is stopping at nothing to destroy New York City.

Sticking with Netflix Originals, there’s plenty to keep the kids busy with after Netflix has added the fifth season of Dinotrux to the service as well bring new episodes of Glitter Force and adding the second season of Little Witch Academia.

Elsewhere, Minority Report starring Tom Cruise is now streaming on Netflix Canada. The sci-fi movie depicts a future where the police can predict a crime before it even happens.

Netflix has also managed to gain two BBC titles this week. One is the return of Peaky Blinders with season 3 and has also made an acquisition in the form of White Gold, a new drama-comedy set in the 1980’s starring two of the boys from The Inbetweeners.

There are some fantastic new documentaries now available in Canada including Louis Theroux’s unorthodox documentary on Scientology called My Scientology Movie. There’s also a documentary covering the rise of Bitcoin as well as one covering some of the world’s toughest prisons.
