We’re slowly approaching the weekend and today, Netflix’s dropped a slew of new movies alongside the big new seasons of Shadow and Bone. Here’s everything new on Netflix and what’s trending in the US top 10s.
There’s still lots to come for the remainder of March, with highlights including The Night Agent, Uncoupled, and The Magician’s Elephant.
As we mentioned yesterday, there are a few titles to look for on the removal side. We’d give a second recommendation to Lee Daniels’ The Butler (2013) plus suggest you take a look at All I Wish (2017), XV: Beyond the Tryline, and Lu Over the Wall (2017).
Best New Movies and Series on Netflix for March 16th, 2023
Dragged Across Concrete (2018)
Genre: Action, Thriller
Director: S. Craig Zahler
Cast: Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, Tory Kittles
Writer: S. Craig Zahler
Runtime: 159 min / 2h 39m
Looking for a solid action thriller with two very well-known names? Dragged Across Concrete fits the bill and arrives on Netflix for the first time today.
Entertainment Weekly gave the movie a glowing review back in 2019 saying:
“It’s a cliché to say that they don’t make movies like this anymore — nasty, nihilistic, nicotine-stained ‘70s death trips. But thank goodness that Zahler’s doing everything in his power to prove that cliché wrong.”
This movie will be sure to do well in the top 10s in the coming days and we suspect we’ll be featuring it again in our weekend movie roundup.
Shadow and Bone (Season 2)
Number of episodes: 8
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Cast: Jessie Mei Li, Ben Barnes, Archie Renaux
Writer: Eric Heisserer
Runtime: 54 mins
After a nearly two-year hiatus, Shadow and Bone is back for a second entry.
Here’s what you can expect going into the second season:
“Backed by a terrifying new army of seemingly indestructible shadow monsters and fearsome new Grisha recruits, Kirigan is more dangerous than ever. To stand a fighting chance against him, Alina and Mal rally their own powerful new allies and begin a continent-spanning journey to find two mythical creatures that will amplify her powers.”
Fan reaction to the new series looks pretty strong thus far, making a third season (and the possible spin-off being talked about today) more and more of a reality. We’ll have to see how viewership looks in the coming weeks.
Barbie: Skipper and the Big Babysitting Adventure (2023)
Genre: Children, Family
Director: Steve Daye
Cast: Kirsten Day, Alex Cazares, Julyza Commodore, Zaela Rae, America Young, Cassandra Lee Morris
Runtime: 62 mins / 1h 2m
Rounding out our picks today is one for the kids in the form of the SVOD debut of the latest Barbie feature film, Skipper and the Big Babysitting Adventure.
Here’s what you can expect from the new hour-long feature:
“When Skipper’s babysitting business hits a snag, she takes a summer job at the water park — where her childcare skills quickly come in handy.”
