Erased is now on Netflix in the US (again!)

It’s been a busy first half of the week with nine new titles now available on Netflix in the United States. We’ll be covering those and also taking a look at what’s trending in the top 10 movies and TV series list for August 5th, 2020.

Before we dive in, just a quick apology for being late on the daily recaps this week. We missed yesterday’s just because we’ve been doing a bit of work on how we capture what’s new and we’re excited to say new additions now show up in our library pages almost straight away.

Let’s take a look at a few highlights before getting to the full list of nine new titles.
