Happy Friday for those in the United Kingdom who are about to head into a long Bank Holiday weekend. This week, Netflix got a bunch of great new titles, including some superb movies from the past few years. Here’s a rundown of the 14 new movies and 10 new series now available to stream.

We’re still working on our full September 2023 list for Netflix UK (you can find the US list here, which includes all the Netflix Originals headed globally). Still, we can tell you some of the licensed movies on the way in September include Edge of Tomorrow, The Card Counter, Godzilla, and The Ice Road.

Best New Movies and Series on Netflix UK This Week

Who is Erin Carter? (Limited Series)

Cast: Evin Ahmad, Sean Teale, Denise Gough, Douglas Henshall, Indica Watson, Pep Ambròs

From the Netflix Originals added over the past seven days, we’d recommend Brits sink their teeth into Who Is Erin Carter? which comes from the same production company as The Crown.

Here’s the official description for the mini-series courtesy of Netflix:

“Meet Erin – Mum, Wife, Teacher living the expat dream in Spain. Or so we think until a robbery in a supermarket reveals her to be a badass fighter! Erin is clearly not who she says she is but how far will she go to keep her true identity at bay?”

Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020)

Director: Dean Parisot
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, Kristen Schaal, Samara Weaving, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Anthony Carrigan

If you’re looking for some dorky dumb fun this weekend, Bill and Ted 3 just dropped on Netflix in the UK two years after it was released in theaters and on demand during the summer of 2020.

Based on the cult comedy classic, the movie sees a much older Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter return to reprise their roles as middle-aged best friends hoping to finally fulfill their rock and roll destiny.

Tenet (2020)

Director: Christopher Nolan
Cast: John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Kenneth Branagh, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine

Christopher Nolan returned to theaters this summer with his new blockbuster Oppenheimer. Still, his big epic before that was Tenet, a sci-fi thriller that, frankly, will leave you speechless after your first watch, probably because you’ve got no idea what you just watched.

Filmed on location across seven countries, the big-budget epic sees his character learn of time inversion that draws him into a big war.
