The Frozen Ground – Picture: Lionsgate

It’s been yet another busy day of new releases on Netflix in the United States with six new movies and TV series added for August 27th. Here’s a look at what’s new on Netflix for today plus we’ll take a look at the top 10 movies and TV series too. 

The six new titles today adds to the six that were also added to Netflix yesterday (August 26th) which included a behind-the-scenes look at The Witcher as well as a Rachel McAdams movie gem.

Now let’s dive into today’s new titles:

The Frozen Ground (2013)

Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Director: Scott Walker
Cast: Nicolas Cage, Vanessa Hudgens, John Cusack, Dean Norris
Writer: Scott Walker
Runtime: 105 min

This movie from early last decade divided critics and audiences wholly. Critics slammed the Nicolas Cage flick about an Alaskan state trooper that was based on real events. Audiences, however, are far more kind with a favorable 6.4/10 on IMDb as of the time of publishing.

The Young Messiah (2016)

Genre: Drama, Fantasy
Director: Cyrus Nowrasteh
Cast: Adam Greaves-Neal, Sara Lazzaro, Vincent Walsh, Finn Ireland
Runtime: 111 min

Added to Netflix late yesterday came a movie with Sean Bean where he doesn’t end up dying.

It’s a religious flick that tells the story of Jesus Christ from the age of seven and his hardships experience at that young age. Just with the movie above, the opinions of the movie differ dramatically.

Edge of Seventeen (1998)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director: David Moreton
Cast: Chris Stafford, Tina Holmes, Andersen Gabrych, Stephanie McVay
Writer: Todd Stephens
Runtime: 99 min

Moving on from a religious film, we move over to an iconic LGBTQ movie from the late 90s.

The flick, set in the mid-1980s, is about a teenager coping with his sexuality as he approaches the last day of school.
