Canadians were treated to 20 new releases this past week on Netflix. Here’s a rundown on all the new releases to hit Canada this week and what’s been trending over the past 7 days in the region.

Before we dive into the full list, let’s first check out some of the highlights.

Finding ‘Ohana (2021)

Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Family
Director: Jude Weng
Cast: Kelly Hu, Ke Huy Quan, Chris Parnell, Marc Evan Jackson
Runtime: 123 min

Our first highlight to spotlight this week is a kids family adventure movie that’s been compared to the likes of The Goonies.

Here’s what you can expect:

In Oahu for the summer, two siblings from Brooklyn connect with their Hawaiian heritage — and their family — on a daring quest for long-lost treasure.

Snowpiercer (Season 2)

Genre: Sci-fi

As we’ve covered in our release schedule for the second season, Netflix in most international regions will be getting weekly drops of Snowpiercer starting from Tuesday onwards.

Here’s a tease as to what you can expect from season 2:

“First there was order. Then there was revolution. Now there is Mr. Wilford.”

Critical Thinking (2020)

Genre: Drama
Director: John Leguizamo
Cast: John Leguizamo, Corwin C. Tuggles, Angel Bismark Curiel

Fans of The Queen’s Gambit will want to check this movie out as the game of Chess is featured heavily. In the movie, we follow a teacher who is up against it in an underprivileged community and submits his students to a national chess tournament.

Reviews are strong for the flick with it currently carrying a 65 out of 100 on Metacritic.
