New Releases on Netflix: January 7th, 2020

A Ghost Story is now on Netflix

Welcome to your first daily recap of what’s new on Netflix in the United States. Today, Netflix has three new titles for you to enjoy including two Hollywood movies and a new Spanish Original movie. 

A much quieter week for new releases this week especially when you compare against the 125 new titles that hit Netflix on January 1st. Nevertheless, Netflix has some great Originals coming up on Friday with the release of AJ and the Queen, Medical Police and Giri/Haji.

Here’s a look at what’s new on Netflix for January 7th, 2020.


A Ghost Story (2019)

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Romance
Director: David Lowery
Cast: Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, McColm Cephas Jr., Kenneisha Thompson
Runtime: 92 min
Awards: 11 wins & 17 nominations.

Our first movie of the day is an absolute delight. It comes from A24 movies who still are one of the best providers for movies to Netflix.

A Ghost Story (not to be confused with the Indian series that just came out with a similar name) is about a man’s spirit returning to Earth as he explores the past and future.

The movie scored nearly perfect scores with critics with it being certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes at 91% whereas the Metacritic scores sit at 84.


The Tourist (2010)

Genre: Action, Adventure, Crime, Mystery, Romance, Thriller
Director: Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck
Cast: Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Paul Bettany, Timothy Dalton
Runtime: 103 min
Language: English
Awards: Nominated for 3 Golden Globes. Another 4 wins & 1 nomination.

Our next movie didn’t score so well with critics despite scoring some big movie nominations at the Golden Globes.

It stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, it’s about a man traveling to Italy to clear his head after a breakup when he gets almost recruited by a dangerous yet glamorous woman.

It scored better with viewers but we’d be interested to hear your thoughts in the comments below.


Live Twice, Love Once (2020)

Genre: Comedy
Director: Maria Ripoll
Cast: Oscar Martínez, Inma Cuesta, Mafalda Carbonell, Nacho López, Isabel Requena, Aina Clotet

The only new Netflix Original movie today comes from Spain and is a Drama.

It’s about a retired teacher trying to find a love he had when he was younger after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

In Spain, the movie is called “Vivir dos veces”. Netflix hasn’t released a public trailer but you can find it on the official page for the movie.
