Shazam! is now available to stream on Netflix UK

It’s been an extremely busy mid-October for Netflix UK with the addition of 70 new movies and TV shows to the library. There’s a little something for everyone to enjoy this week, with plenty to be binged this weekend. Here’s what’s new on Netflix UK this week and the top 10s for October 15th, 2021 

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

Shazam! (2019)

Director: David F. Sandberg
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy | Runtime: 132 minutes
Cast: Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Adam Brody

Shazam! was the much-needed comedic breath of fresh air that a dark and gritty DC film universe had really struggled to connect with the fans and critics.

After losing his mother as a young child, Billy Batson has been jumping from home to home, struggling to find his place in the world. When the ancient magical being Shazam grants him the powers to become a superhero, Billy, still a child at heart must learn what it means to be a superhero and what it means to have a family when he moves in with the Vasquez family and their five orphaned children.

The Forgotten Battle (2021) N

Director: Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.
Genre: Drama, History, War | Runtime: 124 Minutes
Cast: Gijs Blom, Jamie Flatters, Susan Radder, Jan Bijvoet, Tom Felton

World War 2 is not only immortalized through history books but also on film and television. Not only do the films offer a source of entertainment, but can often be an educator to periods or instances of our history not commonly known, such as the Battle of the Scheldt. One of the most important fights of world war 2, sadly the bravery and sacrifice of those who took part in the Battle of the Scheldt have taken a back seat to battles that took place on D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge or Operation Market Garden.

Told through the perspective of three different participators of the Battle of the Scheldt, a Dutch axis pilot, a British air pilot, and a female resistance fighter from Zeeland.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Director: Sam Raimi
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi | Runtime: 139 Minutes
Cast: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Topher Grace, Thomas Haden Church, James Franco

Upon reflection Spider-Man 3 is a much funnier film than intended, which you can thank the internet for pointing out. However, it’s more than enjoyable for any comic book or Spider-Man fan who just wants a couple of hours to shut their brain off to.

When a mysterious symbiotic entity from another world crash lands on Earth, it bonds to Peter Parker aka Spider-Man. But when the strange entity begins to change Peter, and new villains arise, Peter must once again rediscover what it means to be your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
