Happy Saturday and Netflix have some excellent new movies for you to check out this weekend. Here’s a roundup of the four new titles on Netflix US and we’ll look at what’s trending in the top 10s too.

We’re not aware of any new releases that are due out tomorrow but we will be back for your weekly recap where we’re close to 75 new additions this week largely thanks to the drops on August 1st.

Let’s now take a look at what’s on Netflix today:

Article Continues Below...

The Promise (2016)

Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama, History, War
Director: Terry George
Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon, Christian Bale, Daniel Giménez Cacho
Writer: Terry George, Robin Swicord
Runtime: 133 min

We’ll begin today’s highlights with The Promise which is a movie stacked with top talent.

It takes you back to the final days of the Ottoman Empire and a love triangle that forms between a medical student, journalist and a beauty.

The movie was ultimately a box office bomb when it released four years ago but now is your chance to catch this movie that has generally positive reviews sitting at a 6.0 on IMDb.

We Summon the Darkness (2019)

Genre: Horror, Music, Thriller
Director: Marc Meyers
Cast: Alexandra Daddario, Keean Johnson, Maddie Hasson, Amy Forsyth
Writer: Alan Trezza
Runtime: 91 min

Moving into the horror genre, we land at We Summon the Darkness a movie that released last year and features Alexandra Daddario.

Following three friends, you’ll see them head to a heavy-metal show and end up heading to an after-party.

As always with movies in the horror genre, reviews are pretty much split right down the middle.

A Girl Like Grace (2015)

Genre: Drama
Director: Ty Hodges
Cast: Meagan Good, Raven-Symoné, Garcelle Beauvais, Ryan Destiny
Writer: Jacquin DeLeon (story by), Jacquin DeLeon, Ty Hodges
Runtime: 93 min

This movie was not announced in advance but any fans of Raven-Symoné will want to check it out.

The drama follows a young 17-year-old who gets advice from her best friend and older sister after getting relentlessly bullied at high school.

Only a limited number of reviews are available thus far for the movie so we’d be interested to see what people make of it via social media.
