Best New Movies and Series Added to Netflix UK This Week

The Fall of the House of Usher (Season 1)

Genre: Horror
Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood, Mary McDonnell, Carl Lumbly, Mark Hamill, Henry Thomas

Mike Flanagan is looking to go out with a bang with his Netflix deal coming to an end with this final installment following some huge horror titles over the past few years.

With plenty of familiar faces, the new eight-part series tells the story of a family business empire going through the succession process but past secrets come to light.

I’m only partway through the series (we didn’t get a screener, unfortunately), and while I’m not quite ready to say it’s a notch above Midnight Mass, which is one of my favorite Netflix series of all time, it’s pretty darn close.

A Journal for Jordan (2021)

Director: Denzel Washington
Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Chanté Adams, Jalon Christian, Robert Wisdom, Tamara Tunie, Jasmine Batchelor

Releasing in cinemas two years ago and enjoying its first window stint on NowTV, it’s now the turn of Netflix to house the Michael B Jordan romance A Journal for Jordan for a fixed period of time.

Jordan plays the role of Charles King, a 1st sergeant who is sadly killed during the Afghanistan war. The story then goes back and forth between the past and modern-day, with his character laying out in a journal to his son how to grow up to positively influence the world.

Our Kind of Traitor (2016)

Director: Susanna White
Cast: Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgård, Damian Lewis, Naomie Harris, Jeremy Northam, Mark Stanley

One of the lesser-known Ewan McGregor movies from the past decade is the action drama Our Kind of Traitor which sees a couple finding themselves lured into a Russian oligarch’s plans to defect, caught between a rock and a hard place with two warring agencies.

Dave Calhoun of Time Out London particularly enjoyed the movie when it dropped in cinemas, saying that the movie “turns into a brisk, energetic drama, with Anthony Dod Mantle’s photography adding interesting layers to a fairly straightforward plot.”
