A Kid from Coney Island now on Netflix in the US

It’s the first rundown of what’s new on Netflix for this week and there’s a great deal of new content on Netflix to cover. Here’s a look at what’s new on Netflix for July 7th and the daily top 10 movies and TV series for the day. 

This week is going to be relatively busy (nothing compared to the 100+ new titles added last week) with the week headlined by Friday’s new Originals including The Old Guard and Stateless.

Before we get into the full list of five new titles on Netflix, let’s run through our highlights first.

Featured Videos

A Kid from Coney Island (2019)

Genre: Documentary, Biography, Sport
Director: Coodie, Chike Ozah
Cast: Stephon Marbury
Runtime: 95 min

As many sports fans will no doubt know, Netflix is due to get The Last Dance over the next couple of weeks but to whet your appetite, Netflix has picked up (released on Monday) this documentary on Stephon Marbury.

The former NBA player has had an eventful career which is what this hour and a half doc dives into which includes his time as the New Jersey Jets, Pheonix Suns, New York Knicks and finally in the NBA, the Boston Celtics.

Runtime: 86 min

One title that we expect to be dominating the top 10 movies list over the coming days is The Lorax. It returns to Netflix today and is the excellent Illumination adaptation of the Dr. Suess book.

With an impressive cast lineup including Zac Efron (whose Netflix docu-series is added to Netflix later in the week), Taylor Swift and Danny DeVito.

Reviews are mixed for the title with most criticism directed at the liberties it takes with the source material.

How Do You Know

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director: James L. Brooks
Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Jack Nicholson
Writer: James L. Brooks
Runtime: 121 min

Our final highlight of the day is How Do You Know from Sony Pictures.

With great stars on board, the rom-com is about a woman re-evaluating her life after a significant setback and vows to fix her life and complicated love life that has her in a love triangle.

The movie received mixed reviews when it released a decade ago.
