Welcome back to another weekend roundup of a look back at everything new on Netflix over the past 7 days. Netflix US saw 32 new movies and shows added over the past week which we’ll list below. We’ll also cover what’s new on Netflix over the weekend. 

How does this week’s Netflix US haul compare to other regions? About the same is the answer. Netflix UK saw 36 new movies and shows added whereas Netflix Australia added just shy of 30 new releases.

Next week is looking a lot lighter when it comes to new releases with only 10 planned movies and shows as of the time of publishing. We’ll be back on Sunday for a full weekend recap.


Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix & What You May Have Missed

A.X.L. (2018)

Returning to Netflix US this weekend after 18 months away from the service is A.X.L from Open Road Films.

The sci-fi family movie is a must-watch for anyone that’s recently wrapped up watching The Adam Project. A.X.L.follows a young motocross racer called Miles Hill who helps a top-secret robotic combat dog evade its ruthless creator and the military.

Writer: Karen Janszen
Runtime: 90 min

One title we missed out on our daily recaps for the past week was Rescued by Ruby, a new movie starring The Flash’s Grant Gustin.

The movie has received some excellent reviews from audiences but hasn’t managed to top the movie top 10 charts as of yet.

Rescued by Ruby is based on a true story following a state trooper called Dan chasing his dream to become part of the coveted K-9 unit.


The Great Robbery of Brazil’s Central Bank (Season 1)

Genre: Crime, Documentary
Director: Daniel Billio
Runtime: 61 mins

And finally, for true-crime fans most of the attention has been on Bad Vegan this week but we’d also recommend watching this movie that will also be a great watch for anyone who is a fan of Money Heist.

The doc takes a look back in 2005 and one of the biggest robberies in Brazil’s history which saw 160 million reais disappear.
