What’s New on Netflix UK: January 1st, 2019

So to start off with the new year we’re going to be releasing daily updates on all the new titles that arrive on Netflix UK. We’ll still be doing our Friday round-ups and covering the entire week but we’ll present more bite-size chunks throughout the week as well. With that here are the brand new titles to arrive on the 1st of January 2019!

We have 35 brand new titles released on New Year’s Day! With it being the start of the year we can expect many more titles to arrive throughout.


The Blind Side (2009)

Actress Sandra Bullock won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in The Blind Side. Safe to say her popularity hs only excelled higher as she is one of the most beloved actresses in Hollywood.

Homeless Teen Michael Oher has been in and out of the school system most of his life and struggled to find a home. When he is taken in by Leigh Ann Tuhoy and her husband Sean, they help push him towards American Football so he can realize in himself his untapped potential. With his future in his own hands, it’s up to Michael to forge his own future, for the better or for the worse.


Pacific Rim (2013)

Who doesn’t love to watch giant robots and giant monsters beating the holy hell out of each other? Del Toro certainly does and so does Netflix! Coming in the next couple of years Netflix will be releasing an anime series based on the movie franchise.

After a portal to another dimension releases the Kaijou, humanity is forced to fight back by building giant robot defenders. Named the Jaegers, the giant machines are piloted by humans that have to work in unison to take down the giant monsters.


A Series of Unfortunate Events (Season 3) Netflix Original

It’s safe to say the series has seen much greater success than its film counterpart. With the third season now available on Netflix, everyone must remember that this is the final season of the show!

When the Baudelaire children are orphaned after their parents die in a fire, they are sent to live with their ‘Uncle’ Count Olaf. The disgusting and vile Count cares not for the children themselves but is after their fortune of untold riches. Catching onto his scheme the child prodigies devise a plan to get away from the Count’s clutches.
