New Releases on Netflix Australia (21st March 2017)

Published on EST


Australian Netflix has dad plenty of new and exciting titles reach it’s screens. In this week alone 58 new titles have been introduced, consisting of 15 new Movies, 17 new Documentaries, and 28 new TV series. As usual we have taken on the task of picking out 3 titles that stand out to us, and briefly describing them, in the hope that you might want to give one of them ago now they are available to stream on Netflix.

Our first pick for this week is the 2016 Romance Drama ‘Me Before You’ starring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Sam Claflin in a tear-jerking tale of finding love based on the novel by Jojo Moyes. Will Traynor is involved in a motorcycle accident that paralyzes him from the waist down, and he loses the determination to live. But Lou Clark comes into his life and proves to him that he does infact have alot to life for, and he can find joy once again. As well as a tear-jerker, this movie is a feel good film that is perfect to stream on a quiet evening.

Our second choice for this week is the band new Marvel Netflix Series ‘Iron Fist’, which just released and is the last of the ‘Defenders’. The series follows ‘Danny Rand’ the heir and majority shareholder to a multi-billionaire company named after his family (Rand). Danny has been missing, presumed dead for 15 years after him and his parents were victim to a plane crash in the Himalayas. Danny was taken in by ancient warrior monks and brutally trained to be the ‘Iron Fist’. The series does a good job is setting up the upcoming Marvel series ‘The Defenders’ which is going to be a collaboration between, Daredevil, Luke Cake, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist as they come together to take on the dreaded ‘Hand’. Despite the initial bad press Iron Fist received before it was released, it is being regarded as on par with the other Defenders, and is definitely deserving of a watch.

Our Last pick for this week is the second series of the popular BBC series ‘The Last Kingdom’, that is set in the year of 872 and depicts the Danish invasion of England and how the kingdom of Wessex is holding on as the last kingdom not taken over. The show also focusses mainly on Uhtred, a Saxon born nobleman who is captured at a young age by the Danes and brought up, disregarding his old religion. He must find a way to claim what is his by birth right, but where do his loyalties lie?
