New Releases on Netflix UK (3rd March 2017)

Happy March everyone and welcome back to another week of What’s New On Netflix UK.

Probably the most popular addition this week is “Groundhog Day” starring Bill Murray. This classic 1993 comedy film sees self-centred weatherman, Phil, sent to cover the festival of Groundhog Day. He hates it and doesn’t make any attempts to hide the fact but when he wakes up the next day he soon realises that it’s still Groundhog Day. Over and over again…

“Coherence” is a popular sci-fi film that’s made a welcome return to UK Netflix this week. When an asteroid passes overhead and all power and communication is knocked out, a group of friends who were in a dinner party notice something odd. One of their neighbours still has power so a few of them go to investigate. Things start to get a bit strange as the story progresses, as they tend to do in sci-fi films, leading up to a clever ending. It can be a bit slow at times, but it’s worth a watch.

We’ve had some great TV series added this week too. First up is “Cleverman”, an Australian sci-fi series. Ancient, mythological creatures, known as ‘Hairies’, roam the earth in the near future. The Hairies struggle to survive in a hostile world where many humans are out to hunt and destroy them.

Another great sci-fi series is “12 Monkeys” – based on the film of the same name. After a plague decimates the human race, a time traveller heads back to try and stop the plague in the first place.

Some great documentaries have been added this week from PBS’s ‘Nova’ series. These are mostly 40-45 minutes long and very easy to watch. Titles added this week include: “Building Pharoah’s Chariot”, “Cold Case JFK”, “Ground Zero Supertower”, “Killer Landslides”, “Manhunt – Boston Bombers”, “Mind of a Rampage Killer” and “Who Killed Lindbergh’s Baby”.

We’ve also had a few great additions for the whole family too. First is “Cinderella” – the live-action remake from 2015. Based on the classic animation, this remake sees Ella being worked to the bone by her step-mother and step-sisters. But then one day she meets a magical stranger and her world is turned around.

We also have “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water” which is a fun family film. Using the tried and tested strange humour found in the SpongeBob series, the film sees them heading to land after the secret recipe for the Krabby Patty gets stolen. When they get to land.
