Welcome to a look ahead at what’s set to come to Netflix in the US for the next 7 days. There’s a bunch of new releases with the usual first of the month movie rotation. Here’s everything set to release on Netflix between February 28th and March 6th, 2022.
While there are plenty of new releases this week on Netflix, there are also a lot of removals too. The Marvel Netflix series are notably leaving on Tuesday before eventually heading to Hulu later this year.
Our Top Movie and TV Picks on Netflix This Week
Just because there are so many new movies that come to Netflix on the first of the month (this is when movie deals with the likes of Sony and Warner Brothers renew) we’ve decided to pick out several upcoming movies you should watch:
- V for Vendetta (2005) – This poignant 2005 sci-fi is set in a future Britain that’s under tyranny with plans being laid to finally overthrow it. Depressingly relevant given the events of the past week.
- Top Gun (1986) – While we’ve been waiting for nearly 2 years (Maverick is currently due to release in May) for the new movie to come out, we’ll be able to lock and load with the original Tom Cruise movie hitting Netflix for the first time in a while.
- Beirut (2018) – This movie has completely evaded my radar (it’s also known as The Negotiator) and sees great performances from both Jon Hamm and Rosamund Pike. A U.S. diplomat flees Lebanon in 1972 after a tragic incident at his home. Ten years later, he is called back to war-torn Beirut by CIA operatives to negotiate for the life of a friend he left behind.
Two Sentence Horror Stories (Season 3)
Coming to Netflix: Monday
The CW’s Two Sentence Horror Stories is an often-overlooked show from the network and for the most part that’s somewhat justified with less than stellar reviews. With that said, checking out reviews for the third season seems to suggest that the series has come a long way.
For those who love Black Mirror or The Twilight Zone, you’ll be familiar with the format. Every episode kicks off with a brand new concept with season 3 including stories about 5 high school seniors finding themselves prey to a monster, a manager of a fulfillment center trying to keep productive during a virus outbreak, and a man and his girlfriend visiting an Old West reenactment for their podcast.
A fourth season recently aired in early 2022.
Pieces of Her (Season 1) N
Coming to Netflix: Friday
From the producers of Big Little Lies and The Undoing, this new mystery thriller is the big Netflix Original series release of the week and is based on an NYTimes bestseller.
Here’s what you can expect from Pieces of Her which is headlined by Toni Collette:
“In a sleepy Georgia town, a random act of violence sets off an unexpected chain of events for 30-year-old Andy Oliver and her mother Laura. Desperate for answers, Andy embarks on a dangerous journey across America, drawing her towards the dark, hidden heart of her family.”
