Vivo (2021) is now available to stream on Netflix Canada

It’s been one of the busiest starts to a month on Netflix Canada in a long time, thanks to the addition of 97 new movies and TV shows in the library. Here’s what’s new on Netflix Canada this week and the top 10s for August 6th, 2021.

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


Vivo (2021) N

Director: Kirk DeMicco, Brandon Jeffords
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy | Runtime: 95 Minutes
Cast: Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ynairaly Simo, Zoe Saldana, Juan de Marcos González, Michael Rooker

Following the success of The Mitchells vs The Machines and Wish Dragon, for the third time in 2021 Netflix has acquired the exclusive rights to stream a Sony Animated feature. Starring Hamilton creator and Mary Poppins Returns star Lin-Manuel Miranda, we expect this one to be a smash hit with subscribers across the world this weekend.

Vivo, a musical kinkajou, and his beloved owner Andrés Hernández share a passion for music. Andrés receives a letter from Marta Sandoval, inviting her old partner to her farewell concert in Miami, Florida. But tragedy strikes and Andrés passes away before he can attend the concert. It’s up to Vivo, and the help of Andrés’ grand-niece to get from Cuba to Miami, and deliver Andrés’ message in the form of a song.


The Green Mile (1999)

Director: Frank Darabont
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery| Runtime: 189 Minutes
Cast: Tom Hanks, Michael Clarke Duncan, David Morse, Bonnie Hunt, James Cromwell

If The Green Mile doesn’t have you in floods of tears by the end of the movie, then you must have a heart of pure ice. Easily one of the best movies of Tom Hanks’ long career, and the second-best adaptation of one of Stephen King’s novels.

When a prison guard discovers that a death row inmate possesses mysterious powers, he tries desperately to prevent the condemned man’s execution.


The Expendables Trilogy

Movies: 3
Genre: Action, Adventure, Thriller | Runtimes: 103 Minutes | 103 Minutes | 126 Minutes
