For Netflix Canada, the addition of 41 new movies and TV shows in the middle of August means it’s been an incredibly busy week. There are plenty of exciting new movies and shows to watch from the library, including the sequel to Wonder Woman and bonus episodes of The Sandman.


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

Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)

Director: Patty Jenkins
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy | Runtime: 151 Minutes
Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, Robin Wright

After the overwhelming success of the first Wonder Woman movie, there was never any doubt that Warner Bros would green light a sequel. The movie was released during the height of the global pandemic and was one of the movies that helped kickstart Warner’s streaming service, HBO Max.

Decades after her fight against Ares during The Great War, a new threat arises during the 1980s when a charismatic businessman steals an ancient artifact that allows the user to grant wishes.

An Unfinished Life (2005)

Director: Lasse Hallström
Cast: Robert Redford, Jennifer Lopez, Morgan Freeman, Josh Lucas, Damian Lewis, Camryn Manheim

While critics didn’t love this family romance when it was first released, audiences ever since have. Here’s what you can expect if you haven’t watched it yet:

“A grieving widow and her daughter move in with her estranged father-in-law in Wyoming, where time allows them to heal and forgive.”

The Sandman (Bonus Episode)

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Horror
Cast: Tom Sturridge, Boyd Holbrook, Patton Oswalt
Writer: Neil Gaiman, David S. Goyer, Allan Heinberg

As we’ve previously reported, The Sandman was due to get a bonus episode but Netflix has, up until today, been tight-lipped on what exactly was coming.

Well, that changed this morning with the release and reveal of a bonus episode now available on Netflix globally.

The episode, titled A Dream of A Thousand Cats / Calliope, features two stories, one that’s entirely animated and the voice cast of the audiobook for The Sandman and the other, a new live-action story.
