Another week of new Netflix releases awaits with The Witcher headlining Netflix’s lineup globally and a host of licensed movies to accompany them in the US. Here’s a look at every movie and show coming to Netflix between December 13th to 19th, 2021.
As always, you can keep up-to-date with all the new releases on Netflix US via our what’s new hub and we publish highlights for Canada, the UK, and Australia every Friday.
Our Top 3 Highlights Coming to Netflix This Week
Darkest Hour (2017)
Coming to Netflix: Thursday
Although Netflix’s big movie for this week is The Hand of God which they’ll be hoping goes onto win big at awards seasons in 2022, we want to highlight two movies that we think will have broad appeal.
We’ll begin with Darkest Hour which comes from Focus Features and Universal. Led by Gary Oldman, he plays the role of Winston Churchill, the former prime minister of the United Kingdom throughout some of his most trying times as the leader of the country through World War 2.
Coming to Netflix: Saturday
Sticking with licensed movies, this 2013 flick comes from director Spike Lee who adapts the Korean movie of the same name to Western audiences.
The movie is led by Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olsen. It’s about a man who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement, for no apparent reason.
The Witcher (Season 2)
Coming to Netflix: Friday
And of course, the biggest new release of the week is the return of Henry Cavill as Geralt of Riveria. It’s been an incredibly long wait for the second season which, according to most critics, does enough to meet and perhaps even surpass expectations.
Netflix continues its expansion into The Witcher-verse into 2022 with a new prequel, another anime movie, and even a kids series in development.
