Happy first of the month and welcome to your complete rundown of what’s new on Netflix in the United States for March 1st, 2022.

So let’s get into some of the highlights for today. We’ll save most of the highlights for our weekend movie roundup but let’s get into a few titles we definitely recommend you check out:


Top 3 Movie Picks for Today

43 new movies came to Netflix today and the three we’d recommend you add to your watch list first includes:

  • Margin Call (2011) – a fantastic movie that takes place over 24 hours when an analyst seemingly stumbles onto the 2008 crisis slightly early. It’s then a race against time to save the firm.
  • Sorry to Bother You (2018) – Released four years ago, this comedy from director Boots Riley is set in an alternative reality of the present day where a man discovers what he needs to be a success but that sends him down a dark path.
  • The Gift (2015) – Jason Bateman is perhaps best known nowadays for his role in Netflix’s Ozark but one of his best performances, before he took up the role of Marty Byrde, is in this horror thriller that boasts a 91% on RottenTomatoes.

Worst Roommate Ever (Limited Series)

Genre: Documentary
Runtime: 49 mins

Originally scheduled for February, this docu-series was finally released today on Netflix and we suspect it may creep up the top 10 charts in the weeks to come.

Produced by Blumhouse Television, the new five-part series takes a look at different tales of roommates turning into nightmares.
