Our Top 3 Highlights Coming to Netflix This Week

Don’t Look Up (2021) N

Coming to Netflix: Friday / Christmas Eve

We’ve been waiting all year for Adam McKay’s Netflix directorial debut in Don’t Look Up, which is arriving just in time for Christmas! The film is heavy in political satire, with the antagonists of the film massively representing the very worst of politicians with their heads in the sand.

When a pair of astronomers discover that a giant meteorite will destroy the planet in 6 months, they set out on a media tour to convince the most powerful leaders of the world, and the public, of their impending doom.

The Silent Sea (Season 1) N

Coming to Netflix: Friday

If it wasn’t for Squid Game, we would have wagered that The Silent Sea was going to be the biggest K-Drama release on Netflix in 2021. Squid Game’s Heo Sung Tae will star in the K-Drama, and Train to Busan star Gong Yoo, who also briefly starred in Squid Game as Gi Hoon’s mysterious recruiter. Fans of Kingdom will be delighted to see actress Bae Donna in action, who over the past few years has become one of Netflix’s most recognizable actresses from South Korea.

Set in the not-so-distant future, the Earth is dying and undergoing desertification. Earth’s only chance of survival rests in the hands of a specialist team sent to the Moon, whose task is to retrieve a mysterious sample from the Balhae Base research station.

Emily in Paris (Season 2) N

Coming to Netflix: Wednesday

The first season of Emily in Paris was a smash hit with many subscribers from around the world, and after a year’s patient wait fans have been rewarded with a second helping of Lily Collins as fashionista Emily.
