Thanks to the 60 new arrivals on May 1st, it’s been a very busy opening week to May 2024, with some big new shows and movies added. Below, we’ll do a full recap of everything newly added to Netflix US from April 27th through May 3rd, 2024. We’ll also check out what’s been topping the Netflix US charts throughout the week.

Also don’t forget that this list is set to grow by one tonight and several more over the weekend. Tonight, we’re referring to John Mulaney Presents Everybody in L.A., which will be live on Netflix with special guests Jerry Seinfeld, Stavros Halkias, Ray J, and Tony Tucci, with a musical performance by St. Vincent. That goes live at 7 PM Pacific or 10 PM Eastern.

Over the weekend, Netflix will go live again twice with Katt Williams on Saturday and Tom Brady’s roast on Sunday. We’ll also see a new K-drama superhero series The Atypical Family drop tomorrow. Then, on Sunday, you’ve got Larva in Mars and The Peanut Butter Falcon dropping.

Let’s get into some highlights before diving into the full list:


What to Watch on Netflix This Weekend

Shadow in the Cloud (2020)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Action, Horror, War
Director: Roseanne Liang
Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Robinson, Beulah Koale
Writer: Max Landis, Roseanne Liang
Runtime: 83 min / 1h 23m

Chloë Grace Moretz has been involved with a few Netflix projects in the last few years but another recent movie she’s starred in released in 2020 and makes its Netflix debut today.

Set during WWII, you follow Captain Maude Garrett, who is on a highly important top-secret mission in which she encounters an unnatural force.

This movie has an incredible gap between critics’ and audience opinions. The critics seemed to love it, as evidenced by its coveted Certified Fresh rating on RottenTomatoes and 77% score. The critics’ consensus was that it was “pulpy fun.” On the flipside, the audience score sits at 32%. Where will you land?


A Man in Full (Limited Series)

Number of episodes: 6
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Drama
Cast: Jeff Daniels, Diane Lane, Tom Pelphrey, Aml Ameen, Chanté Adams, Jon Michael Hill
Runtime: 43 mins

The big new Netflix release of the week (we’d recommend Unfrosted but the reviews are not kind so far!) is the 6-part limited series A Man in Full from David E. Kelley with Regina King behind the camera.

Adapting a well-known novel, the series follows a billionaire real estate mogul who finds himself up against it when all of his vast loans have been called in by his financiers.

The reviews for the series thus far have been mixed, but most praise Daniels’s performance even if they find other places lacking.


Boiling Point (Limited Series)

Number of episodes: 4
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Drama, Thriller
Cast: Vinette Robinson, Hannah Walters, Izuka Hoyle, Stephen Graham, Steven Ogg, Cathy Tyson
Writer: James Cummings
Runtime: 45 mins

Sticking with limited series, we come onto the sublime (and stressful) series that follows on from the highly rated movie of the same name.

Per the BBC, here’s what you can expect from the 4 part series:

“Flawless food, flawed people. In the relentless pressure of the kitchen, someone is going to crack. Following on from the hit film, starring Stephen Graham and Vinette Robinson.”
