Happy weekend and welcome to your weekend roundup of what’s new on Netflix over the past 7 days. It’s been an incredibly quiet week for new releases on Netflix largely because the schedule was kept relatively clear for the release of Bridgerton season 2.

Netflix US wasn’t the only region to have a quiet week. Netflix UK, AU, CA, and in fact, every Netflix region was lighter on new releases this week. We’ve seen this happen before with The Witcher season 2 where Netflix Originals and even licensed content is seemingly shifted to keep all focus on the flagship release.

Next week on Netflix is looking much busier with two big Netflix Original movies coming up and a host of licensed movies and shows too.

Before we recap the full list, let’s first take a look at what’s new on Netflix this weekend:


Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

Genre: Action, Drama, Mystery
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Cast: Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas
Writer: Hampton Fancher, Michael Green, Philip K. Dick
Runtime: 164 min

As featured in our best new movies on Netflix this week list, Blade Runner 2049 makes its debut on Netflix US 5 years after premiering in cinemas.

Starring Ryan Gosling, this movie sees a brand new blade runner tasked with finding Rick Deckard but finds himself questioning his own existence.

As an added bonus, Netflix also relicensed the original Blade Runner movie from 1982 onto the service (it was last seen a month ago).


King of Thieves (2018)

Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Director: James Marsh
Cast: Michael Caine, Francesca Annis, Olivia Le Andersen
Writer: Joe Penhall, Duncan Campbell, Mark Seal
Runtime: 108 min

Also known as The Hatton Garden Job, this British drama didn’t receive the best of reviews but the talent list alone makes it worthy of a watch.

Here’s what you can expect if you chose to dive in:

“A widower reunites his old partners in crime for one last job: an old-school jewel heist that’s the biggest in London’s history. Based on a true story.”

This is the first time Kings of Thieves has been on Netflix.
