New Releases on Netflix Canada (25th August 2017)

Only one week of August remains, and soon the 1st of September will welcome a mass of titles that normally come with the start of each month. This last week has welcomed 80 new titles, including 36 new titles, 13 documentaries, and a further 31 new TV series. We will be highlighting three individual titles, but if you look through the list and spot something that you think deserved to be picked out, please tell us in the comments below.

Our first pick for this week is the new Netflix Original ‘Death Note‘, a live-action adaptation of the very popular anime show. The film follows Light Turner, a promising high-school student, but not a particularly popular one. After stumbling on an unknown and mystical notebook, Light soon discovers he has been granted with the ability to kill anyone he wishes, just be writing the attended victim’s name in the pages of the book. Many fans of the anime have been hesitative regarding the new adaptation, but this Horror/Thriller is worth a watch.

The fifth season of the very popular animated Dreamworks show ‘Dragons: Race to the Edge‘. The series is a follow up from the ‘How to Train Your Dragon films’ and continues following the adventures of Hiccup and his trusted Dragon Toothless. The show originally aired on Cartoon Network but was taken over by Netflix after the second season because of a deal made between Dreamworks and Netflix. What made the films and the subsequent TV series so successful is that even though it is initially aimed at kids, many age ranged have enjoyed this franchise. Fans will be pleased to see season 5 on their screens.

How to Get Away with Murder‘ is a Crime, Drama based around a group of law students being taught by their seemingly brilliant criminal defense professor Annalise Keating, played by Viola Davis. Soon the whole university gets wrapped up in an in-depth murder plot which puts everyone at risk. The show has been met with amazing critical acclaim and is loved by many. Season 3 has just been added for you to get stuck into.

This week’s honourable mentions include: The Mist – Season 1, School of Rock and Disjointed – Season 1.
