The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is available to stream on Netflix UK

It’s been a great week of new additions to the UK library, with a respectable 38 new movies and TV shows ready to be streamed. Here’s what’s new on Netflix UK this week and the top 10s for August 27th, 2021.

First of all, here are the past week’s top highlights:


The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf (2021) N

Director: Kwang Il Han
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure | Runtime: 83 Minutes
Cast: Theo James, Mary McDonnell, Lara Pulver, Graham McTavish, Tom Canton

Netflix continues to expand the world of the Witcher thanks to its new animated prequel adventure. Taking a step back in time before the exploits of Geralt, instead, the limelight is all on Vesemir, Geralt’s teacher.

After escaping from poverty to become a Witcher, Vesemir is one of the greatest slayers of Kaer Morhen. But when a new evil threatens the continent, and distrust is sown between the crown and the Witchers, the very future of the School of the Wolf is at threat.


Archer (Season 11)

Seasons: 11 | Episodes: 108
Genre: Animation, Action, Comedy | Runtime: 22 Minutes
Cast: H. Jon Benjamin, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Chris Parnell, Aisha Tyler

One of the funniest FX adult-animated comedies around, Archer has consistently been one of the best TV shows Netflix UK has had in its library for years.

After spending multiple seasons laying comatose and dreaming of Danger Island and the year 1999 Archer finally awakens.


Tomb Raider (2018)

Director: Roar Uthaug
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy | Runtime: 119 Minutes
Cast: Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, Kristin Scott Thomas

It took over a decade to find a replacement for Angelina Jolie, but arguably Alicia Vikander is a worthy successor. Taking on the look of the modern Tomb Raider games, the latest installment of the franchise is incredibly fun and action-packed.

Refusing to take the mantle of her missing father’s global empire, Lara Croft is determined to find him. Lara’s search takes her to a mysterious island off the coast of Japan, where a fabled tomb rests. The tomb houses a great evil, that if unleashed, threatens to destroy the world.
