Happy Tuesday and welcome to your first daily recap of what’s new on Netflix! Its’ the calm before the storm as tomorrow will see over 50 new movies and TV series join Netflix in the US. Here’s a roundup of the eight new titles added to Netflix so far this week, plus the daily top 10 movies and TV series.
Don’t forget today is your last day to check out some of the 100 movies and series set to leave Netflix US tomorrow. We’d highly recommend giving some of the NOVA documentaries a viewing before they depart tomorrow too.
Before we dive into the full list of what’s new, let’s take a look at the highlights:
Swimming Pool (2003)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Director: François Ozon
Cast: Charlotte Rampling, Ludivine Sagnier, Charles Dance, Jean-Marie Lamour
The biggest new movie of the day is one we suspect may crawl up the Netflix US top 10s given that it’s a steamy thriller. If this lockdown has proved anything, it’s that Americans love their steamy movies.
The movie features Charles Dance (who is most known now for his tenure on Game of Thrones) and Charlotte Rampling (who is most well-known for 45 Years and Dexter although its worth noting she also voices a character in BNA released today on Netflix).
It’s about an author who wants to relax and find inspiration for a new mystery thriller but ends up being in one herself.
Genre: Action, Thriller
Director: Steven C. Miller
Cast: Bruce Willis, Kellan Lutz, Gina Carano, D.B. Sweeney
Runtime: 82 min
One title that’s going to be confusing for some is the addition of Extraction from 2015 to sit alongside Netflix’s own Extraction.
This movie is frankly the inferior Extraction movie but both fall into similar genres. It’s about a former CIA agent who is kidnapped, and his son’s attempt at getting him back.
The movie has streamed on Netflix USA before but left in March 2018.
Homemade (Season 1)
Director: Ana Lily Amirpour, Natalia Beristáin, Antonio Campos, Gurinder Chadha, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Naomi Kawase, Nadine Labaki, Pablo Larraín, Sebastián Lelio, Ladj Ly, Johnny Ma, David Mackenzie, Rachel Morrison, Khaled Mouzanar, Rungano Nyoni, Sebastian Schipper, Paolo Sorrentino, Kristen Stewart
In once again proving it has a global network of creators, Netflix has compiled some excellent directors and talent together for the release of this COVID specific series.
Each episode which ranges from 4-8 minutes with different languages, tells a different short story.
