Two Lovers New On Netflix March 1st 2024

PALTROW, PHOENIX, TWO LOVERS, 2008 – Picture: Magnolia Pictures

Happy Friday and happy first of the month. As with every first of the month, Netflix has a big changeover when it comes predominantly with licensed titles. Because we’re falling on a Friday too, we’ve got a bunch of big new Netflix Originals too. Here’s everything new on Netflix for March 1, 2024.

If you’re wondering if we’ll do a full weekly recap – we will on Sunday, but if you can’t wait until then, you can find the complete list of new releases via our New on Netflix hub.

Speaking of the weekend, on Sunday evening, you can watch The Netflix Slam live and only on Netflix.

Now, let’s dig into three of today’s new release highlights:


Best New Movies and Series on Netflix for March 1st, 2024

Two Lovers (2008)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Drama, Romance
Director: James Gray
Writer: James Gray, Ric Menello
Runtime: 110 min / 1h 50m

Making its Netflix debut from Magnolia Pictures is the romantic drama movie headlined by Joaquin Phoenix and Gwyneth Paltrow. The film is about a bachelor living in Brooklyn who’s staring down two relationships – one is a friend of the family and the other a new neighbor who he instantly took too. Who will he choose?

The movie scored predominantly great reviews with critics when it released over 15 years ago and it must be said that audiences still remain warmed to the film even after all this time. Jonathan Crocker for Total Film wrote, “A small, dark, simple love story with big, burning, complex emotions. If this really is Phoenix’s final performance, it’s one hell of a way to go.”


Spaceman (2024)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Adventure, Drama, Sci-Fi
Director: Johan Renck
Cast: Adam Sandler, Carey Mulligan, Paul Dano
Writer: Jaroslav Kalfar, Colby Day
Runtime: 107 min / 1h 47m

Spaceman N 01 28 08 00 R

One of our most anticipated movies of 2024 has undoubtedly been the new Adam Sandler movie Spaceman, which adapts the beloved book Spaceman of Bohemia.

Here’s what you can expect:

“Six months into a solo mission, a lonely astronaut confronts the cracks in his marriage with help from a mysterious creature he discovers on his ship.”

We gave the movie a 3-star rating out of five, with our critic Andrew Morgan, concluding:

“It’s a weird day when you say “I expected a lot more from a serious Adam Sandler movie”, but his track record forces it so. Not even backstory & chemistry to rise to the prestige of Sandler’s past successes and their peers in unique life-examining relationship dramas.”


The Disaster Artist (2017)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Biography, Comedy, Drama
Director: James Franco
Cast: James Franco, Dave Franco, Ari Graynor
Writer: Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber, Greg Sestero
Runtime: 104 min / 1h 44m

Returning to Netflix today for a few months is the brilliant biopic comedy from director James Franco that sees him and Dave Franco recreate the behind-the-scenes of the movie production that has become one of the biggest cult classics of all time – The Room.

This is one of at least three A24 movies we know about coming up in March 2024. The second is Bodies Bodies Bodies, which topped our most anticipated list for the month. Finally, as we reported exclusively yesterday When You Finish Saving the World will *finally* be making its way onto a streaming service via Netflix towards the end of the month.
