Tread now on Netflix

Welcome to your daily recap of what’s new on Netflix where we’ll be taking you through the 8 new additions that arrived today including some great new documentaries and foreign titles. We’ll also look at the top 10 movies and TV series trending right now. 

Two major movies were removed from the US today including Ant-Man and the Wasp (the final MCU movie to leave Netflix) and Her, the excellent drama featuring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson.

As always, you can keep up-to-date with all the new releases on Netflix right here on What’s on Netflix.

Now let’s look at what’s new on Netflix for today:


The Speed Cubers (2020)

Genre: Documentary, Short
Director: Sue Kim
Runtime: 40 min

You’ve no doubt seen a hundred YouTube clips of viral “speedcubers” demonstrating their skills in finishing the famous Rubiks Cube puzzle but this documentary takes you behind the scenes at a top-flight competition.

Much like the subject matter itself, The Speed Cubers is a short affair running you well under an hour.


Tread (2020)

Genre: Documentary
Director: Paul Solet
Cast: Marvin Heemeyer, Robert Fleet, Teresa Riley
Writer: Paul Solet
Runtime: 89 min

This could be one of the most fascinating documentaries I’ve ever had to cover coming to Netflix.

The documentary by Paul Solet takes you into the true-crime of a man who fortified a bulldozer and wreaked havoc on his local town.

It’s truly bizarre and garnered excellent review scores when it released last year. It holds a 90% on RottenTomatoes and a 7.5/10 on IMDb.


Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons (Season 4)

Genre: Documentary
Cast: Raphael Rowe

Our final highlight for today is yet another documentary although this time, it’s the fourth season of Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons.

Throughout the four new episodes, you will get to visit prisons in Paraguay, Germany, Mauritius, and Lesotho.
