whats new on netflix canada this week canada may 7th 2021

Netflix Canada is off to a busy start this May with the addition of 62 new movies and TV shows to the library. Here’s what’s new on Netflix Canada this week and the top 10s for May 7th, 2021.

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


Jupiter’s Legacy (Volume 1) N

Seasons: 8 | Episodes: 1
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama | Runtime: 50 Minutes
Cast: Josh Duhamel, Ben Daniels, Leslie Bibb, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton

Netflix’s answer to The Boys rests in the hands of Jupiter’s Legacy, the first of many Millarworld comic adaptations to come.

For almost a century, The Utopian and the other first generation of heroes have kept the world safe. Now the children must live up to their parent’s legacy as they try to establish their own identities in the world.


Life (1999)

Director: Ted Demme
Genre: Comedy, Crime, Drama | Runtime: 108 Minutes
Cast: Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, Obba Babatundé, Nick Cassavetes, Bernie Mac

An underappreciated gem, Murphy and Lawrence are a fantastic comedy duo that we definitely should have seen more of in the 90s.

Wrongfully imprisoned for a crime they didn’t commit, Rayford Gibson and Claude Banks begin a friendship in 1932 that lasts right through the 20th century as they spend life inprisoned.


The Upside (2017)

Director: Neil Burger
Genre: Comedy, Drama | Runtime: 126 Minutes
Cast: Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, Nicole Kidman, Aja Naomi King, Jahi Di’Allo Winston

Kevin Hart offered a sincere and more heartfelt performance than what we are typically used to seeing from the comedian. Subscribers will soon get to see Hart give a dramatic performance for the first time when he stars in the upcoming Original movie Fatherhood.

A wealthy but quadriplegic man employs a down on his luck man with a criminal record to help him with his day-to-day activities.


Most Popular Movies & TV Shows on Netflix Canada This Week: May 7th, 2021

Unlike many other countries The Mitchells vs The Machines has managed to beat Things Heard & Seen to the top of the most popular movies list. Unsurprisingly, Shadow and Bone has claimed the number one spot for TV Shows.
