the departed netflix 62 new releases this week

The Departed is now on Netflix in the US (again)

Welcome to your end-of-week recap of what’s been added to Netflix in the United States and take a look at what’s been trending in the US top 10s over the past week. 

Looking ahead, this is going to be an extremely busy week for Netflix. Not only are they announcing a boatload of new stuff via their Geeked Week offerings they’re also releasing titles like First Kill, Hustle, and Peaky Blinders.

Now let’s get into some highlights and the full list of all 62 new movies and shows added.


New on Netflix This Weekend and What You May Have Missed This Week

Straight Up (2019)

Genre: Comedy, Romance
Director: James Sweeney
Cast: James Sweeney, Omar Guazzelli, Brendan Scannell
Writer: James Sweeney
Runtime: 95 min
Awards: 1 win & 2 nominations

Returning to Netflix this weekend is Straight Up, a movie with an impressive 93% on RottenTomatoes. The LGBTQ story is a romantic comedy about a gay man who has OCD entering a relationship with a woman only to not engage in the more intimate stuff.


The Departed (2006)

Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Director: Martin Scorsese
Writer: William Monahan, Alan Mak, Felix Chong
Runtime: 151 min

One of the unannounced additions to Netflix US this week was the return of The Departed which features an all-star cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, and Jack Nicholson.

The movie has recently dominated Netflix top 10s in the United Kingdom so it was surprising to see it wasn’t able to replicate that success in the United States so we’re giving it a nod here.

Winner of 4 Oscars, the Martin Scorsese flick (who has been in the news this week with regards to Netflix) is perhaps one of the director’s finest and a welcome re-addition.
