Awake is now available to stream on Netflix UK

It’s certainly a much quieter week for Netflix UK with the addition of only 24 new movies and TV shows to the library. Still, there’s lots to be enjoyed so if you aren’t busy watching the start of the European Championships, or basking in the sun, make sure to give Netflix a watch this weekend. Here’s what’s new on Netflix UK and the top 10s for June 11th, 2021.

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

Awake (2021) N

Director: Mark Raso
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama | Runtime: 96 Minutes
Cast: Gina Rodriguez, Ariana Greenblatt, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Shamier Anderson, Barry Pepper

With the recent change in weather in the UK, many of us may be able to relate to a distinct lack of sleep, but we’re just thankful that it’s not because of a global catasrophe, unlike the world of Awake.

A devasting world event results in all electronic devices being wiped out, and humans have lost the ability to sleep, quickly consuming the world into chaos. Jill, an ex-soldier, may have the cure to the world’s problem thanks to her daughter Matilda, but delivering her to the right people and saving the world is balanced on a thread as Jill slowly begins to lose her mind from the lack of sleep.

Captain Phillips (2013)

Director: Paul Greengrass
Genre: Adventure, Biography, Crime | Runtime: 134 Minutes
Cast: Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Barkhad Abdirahman, Catherine Keener, Faysal Ahmed

This feature was nominated for six academy awards, which inlcuded the award for Best Motion Picture of the Year. Of course, many remember the film for the iconic meme that stemmed from Barkhad Abdi’s wonderful performance as Somalian pirate Muse.

Based on the true story of the 2009 hijacking, which saw Somalian pirates hijack the American cargo ship MV Maresk Alabama, the first American cargo ship hijacking in two hundred years.

America’s Got Talent (Season 2) N

Seasons: 2 | Episodes: New Episodes Weekly
Genre: Variety | Runtime: 80 minutes

A whole heap of talented hopefuls are put in front of the judges as they stake their claim to become America’s most talented variety act, worthy of being the headline act in Las Vegas.

Most Popular Movies & TV Series on Netflix UK This Week: June 11th, 2021

Unsurprisngly, a true crime-drama finds itself in the UK movie top spot once again thanks to Beleive Me: The Abduction of Lisa McVey.

Lucifer also goes another week at the top of the pile for TV, and we don’t believe that’s going to change anytimme soon.
