Spider-Man: Far From Home is now available to stream on Netflix Australia

It’s an extremely busy start to the new year with a whole heap of movies, and a select number of television shows being added to the Australia library for a total of 78 new additions. 

First of all, here are the week’s top highlights:


Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Director: Jon Watts
Genre: Superhero | Runtime:
Starring: Tom Holland, Zendaya, Samuel L. Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon

Far From Home marked the fifth appearance for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, and an MCU debut for Jake Gyllenhaal.

After the defeat of Thanos, Peter Parker attempts to take a break from superhero work and goes on vacation with his school to Europe, only for his duties to chase him across the Atlantic as elemental beings from an alternate reality invade.


King Kong (2005)

Director: Peter Jackson
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama | Runtime: 187 Minutes
Cast: Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Brody, Thomas Kretschmann, Colin Hanks

Off the back of directing one of the greatest film franchises ever produced, Peter Jackson went against his own wishes of wanting to direct a small indie flick, and instead took on the remake of the classic King Kong.

Filmmaker Carl Denham assembles a team of movie makers and set sail to Skull Island, the fabled island home to a cannibal tribe. But, upon arrival, they find more than just cannibals, with the island home to giant insects and beasts, and home to Kong, the king of all apes.


Young Sheldon (Season 4)

Seasons: 4 | Episodes: 83
Genre: Comedy | Runtime: 23 Minutes
Cast: Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Montana Jordan, Reagen Revord

Many of The Big Bang Theory fans were relucant when news broke of a Sheldon Cooper prequel, however, many would be surprised that the series is charming, heart warming, and a worthy prequel to one of America’s most successful modern sitcoms.

Before his life in California, Sheldon Cooper, grew up in Texas, where unique challanges constantly challanged the socially inempt boy genius,  who’s family constantly had to put up with curious and inquisitive nature.
