This week’s new Netflix releases are absolutely dominated by Netflix Originals with very few new licensed titles to speak of. That said, this week does see some promising new releases so let’s take a look at everything coming to Netflix US (although most of these titles arrive globally) between August 9th to August 15th, 2021.
As always, you can keep up to speed with the new releases on Netflix via our what’s new on Netflix hub.
Top 3 Titles Coming to Netflix This Week
Coming to Netflix: Friday
Shot in Greece, this new Netflix Original movie sees John David Washington in his second major Netflix movie after the release of Malcolm & Marie earlier this year.
Washington plays the role of Beckett, an American tourist vacationing in Greece who gets involved in a car accident that thrusts him into a political conspiracy.
Actors and actresses also starring in Beckett includes Alicia Vikander, Boyd Holbrook, and Vicky Krieps.
The Kissing Booth 3 (2021)
Coming to Netflix: Wednesday
Shot in secret, The Kissing Booth is back for possibly its final entry. Netflix has almost single-handedly revived the romantic comedy genre in recent years and The Kissing Booth has been a big component of that drive.
Joey King (who recently signed a deal with Netflix) returns as Elle Evans who has to make some particularly taxing decisions in this third entry having to prepare for moving to college.
Brand New Cherry Flavor (Limited Series)
Coming to Netflix: Friday
One title that could be either superb or fall flat on its face this week is the limited series Brand New Cherry Flavor.
The series is created by Nick Antosca and Lenore Zion and focuses on an up-and-coming film director who moves to Hollywood but ends up getting involved in an underground organisation that delves into the supernatural.
