It’s a quieter end to April with the addition of 23 new movies and TV shows on Netflix Australia this week. Subscribers can look forward to a busy May, as we see plenty of exciting new arrivals that subscribers are sure to enjoy. Here’s what’s new on Netflix Australia this week & the top 10s for May 1st, 2021.

First of all, here are the past week’s top highlights on Netflix Australia:

The Mitchells vs. The Machines (2021) N

Director: Michael Rianda, Jeff Rowe
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy | Runtime: 113 Minutes
Cast: Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Michael Rianda, Eric André

Unable to release the film theatrically, Sony instead allowed Netflix to pick up the digital streaming rights. With 24 million views on the trailer already, we’re expecting to see The Mitchells vs. The Machines to be one of the most-watched Netflix Originals of 2021.

Katie’s plans of meeting new friends at college are thrown out the window when her nature-loving dad, Rick, plans a family road trip. Rick’s plans for some family bonding are also interrupted when tech from all across the world, from cell phones to home appliances attempt a world takeover. With the help of two friendly robots, the Mitchells must overcome their family issues if they are to save the world.

Child’s Play (2019)

Director: Lars Klevberg
Genre: Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi  | Runtime: 90 Minutes
Cast: Tim Matheson, Ben Daon, Zahra Anderson, Serge Jaswal, Ariana Nica

One of the most iconic movie villains of all time, it should come as no surprise that the killer doll Chucky would get his remake, and a redesign to match the reboot. Mark Hamill replaced Brad Douriff as the murderous doll, adding his own sinister twist to the character.

For her son’s 14th Birthday Karen Barclay gets her hands on a state-of-the-art “Buddi” doll. It’s not long before Andy and the doll grow attached to each other but over time the doll begins to show violent tendencies. When the smart doll’s violent nature begins to shine through Andy is left with no choice but to team with the children of the neighborhood to take down the toy from hell before it kills them all.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (Season 1)

Seasons: 1 | Episodes: 26
Genre: Action, Adventure | Runtime: 30 Minutes
Cast: Johnny Yong Bosch, Marc Diraison, Steve Kramer, Patrick Seitz, Doug Stone

Australian subscribers won’t have to wait long before the second season of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure arrives on Netflix, so if you binge the first season this weekend we think you can be forgiven.

The Joestar family over the course of many generations have been using their powers for good confronting evil supernatural villains that appear in different time periods. Each unique story follows different members of the Joestar family and their adventures.
