New Releases on Netflix UK (August 21st, 2015)

This week’s big addition is the third and final film in The Hobbit series: “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”. Bilbo and friends go to war trying to protect the Lonely Mountain and its hoards of gold.

Australian horror-thriller “The Babadook” sees a children’s story book come to life with horrific consequences. It’s a clever film that actually makes you think a bit more than most horrors.

The 1984 classic “Starman” has also been added this week. The John Carpenter film follows an alien who, after crash-landing on Earth, takes on the form of a recently deceased man. While trying to evade the government he asks the man’s widow to help him escape.
