dark skies back on netflix us june 22nd

Dark Skies is now back on Netflix

Happy Monday and Netflix has four new titles to discover today although many are international pickups. Here’s a recap of the daily new releases plus we’ll also take a look at what’s happening on the top 10 movie and TV series charts too.

This week is remarkably quiet for new Netflix releases this week so as per usual, expect Netflix to be firing on all cylinders with new announcements. That’s certainly been the case thus far today with the news of the new Transformers coming, a release date for Lucifer season 5A and the news Netflix is picking up Cobra Kai.

Now let’s get into our two highlights for today’s new releases and one final plug, you can see a full list of what was added to Netflix last week here.

Dark Skies (2013)

Genre: Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Director: Scott Stewart
Cast: Keri Russell, Josh Hamilton, Dakota Goyo, Kadan Rockett
Writer: Scott Stewart
Runtime: 97 min

Making its return to Netflix today is the horror movie Dark Skies. It was last seen on Netflix back in late 2016.

It’s about a family struggling to deal with the fact aliens are invading their home and terrorizing their children.

As always when it comes to movies from this particular genre, review scores are fairly divided so we’d likely suggest giving it a go and seeing how your opinion differs.


Kappela (2020)

Genre: Comedy, Romance
Director: Suresh Babu, Muhammed Musthafa
Cast: Roshan Mathew, Sreenath Bhasi, Anna Ben, Sudhi Koppa
Runtime: 111 mins

Our international highlight today is from India and is the new romantic comedy Kappela with some top stars from the region. It’s seen some great reviews thus far and will no doubt feature in our Indian movie roundup later this month.

It’s a typical Bollywood-style girl meets boy story but has already gotten great reviews thus far.

If you want to watch the trailer below, be sure to turn on English subtitles.
