It’s time to recap the week that was and all 34 movies and shows added over the past 7 days on Netflix in the United States. We’ll also touch on some of the new releases this weekend and a title or two you may have missed over the week. Then, finally, we’ll take a look at what’s taken home the most points in the Netflix US top 10s.

As we enter a new month, expect a big drop of movies and new TV shows over the next 7 days. We’ve picked out some of our most anticipated new titles and given you the full preliminary list of what’s coming up here.

Sadly, many shows and movies are leaving Netflix over the next 7 days, too, so make sure you watch anything you need to before it departs.


The Wretched (2019)

Genre: Horror, Mystery
Director: Brett Pierce, Drew T. Pierce
Cast: John-Paul Howard, Piper Curda, Jamison Jones
Writer: Brett Pierce, Drew T. Pierce
Runtime: 95 min
Awards: 4 wins & 5 nominations

From IFC Films (a solid distributor for Netflix in an age where licensed movies aren’t as plentiful) Netflix


Uncoupled (Season 1)

Genre: Comedy, Romance
Cast: Emerson Brooks, Colin Hanlon, Iván Amaro Bullón

Our “you may have missed this” pick of the week this week is the brand new comedy series that we did feature in our Friday roundup but sadly has barely registered on Netflix’s top 10s around the world (it’s only the 15th most popular show as of July 31st).

The Times in the United Kingdom reviewed the series and concluded:

“Quick-witted as you’d expect — the kind of slickness that makes it eminently easy to hit the “next episode” button.”


Habaddi (2019)

Genre: Family, Comedy
Director:
Nachiket Samant
Cast: Karan Dave, Vedashree Mahajan, Mayur Khandge, Rupesh Bane, Jayesh Kardak, Arya Naik

Habaddi Netflix

Licensed to Netflix today is the Marathi language movie, Habaddi which comes from the director of Comedy Couple and Gachchi.

Here’s what you can expect from the movie:

“A boy with a speech condition wishes to seek out the girl he loves in Mumbai, but realizes his only ticket to the city is through his local kabaddi team.”
