Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

It’s been an extremely busy start to the new month on Netflix UK with the addition of 90 new movies and TV shows to the library. There’s a little something for everyone to watch on Netflix UK this weekend if you find yourself stuck indoors. Here’s what’s new on Netflix UK this week and the top 10s for August 6th, 2012.

First of all, here are the top highlights of the week:


Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)

Director: Tim Burton
Genre: Drama, Horror, Musical | Runtime: 116 Minutes
Cast: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall, Sacha Baron Cohen

If there was ever a perfect director to take on the adaptation of the Broadway musical Sweeney Todd, it was only ever going to be Tim Burton.

After spending 15 years in exile, Benjamin Barker returns to London under the alias of “Sweeney Todd,” and returns to his Fleet Street barbershop. With the help of Nellie Lovett, Barker begins his plan for revenge against the corrupt Judge Turpin, the man responsible for the death of his wife.


The Island (2005)

Director: Michael Bay
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller| Runtime: 136 Minutes
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Ewan McGregor, Djimon Hounsou, Steve Buscemi, Sean Bean

People often forget that The Island was directed by Michael Bay, and is arguably one of his most underrated movies.

With the world seemingly destroyed, the last safe haven is known to those left as “The Island.” Residents of an isolated facility are selected through a lottery to be taken to The Island, but Lincoln Six-Echo, one of the residents, begins to suspect that not everything is what it seems, soon discovering everything he knew was a lie.


Creed (2015)

Director: Ryan Coogler
Genre: Drama, Sport | Runtime: 133 Minutes
Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Tony Bellew

The Rocky franchise is no stranger to sequels, but no one was quite expecting just how good Creed, the soft reboot/sequel of the franchise, was going to be. Michael B. Jordan stepped up as the excellent underdog fighter, while Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky transitioned from champion fighter to coach.

Long since retired and now the owner of a small Italian restaurant, Rocky Balboa has moved on from life in the ring. But when Adonis Creed, the son of his late friend and rival Apollo, asks him to become his coach, he begins to prepare the young boxer for the fight of his life.
