Atlas Shrugged: Part II – Picture: Atlas Distribution Company

Forty-six new titles hit Netflix US in total this week with three new additions over the weekend. Here’s a rundown of the new titles this weekend and the full list of every new movie and TV series that touched down this week.

Let’s quickly check in with what’s new and then carry over to the full list.

Atlas Shrugged: Part II (2012)

Genre: Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
Director: John Putch
Cast: Diedrich Bader, Jason Beghe, Jordana Capra, Jennifer Cortese
Runtime: 111 min

Longterm subscribers of Netflix will remember this movie being on Netflix but it departed back in 2014 so the likelihood is this is new to you.

Reviews aren’t particularly kind but if you’re into your sci-fi and exhausted all other options give it a chance.

Here’s what you can expect:

“With the world’s economy in dire straits, corporate protagonist Dagny Taggart searches for a solution amid the rubble of a long-abandoned factory.”

Rhys Nicholson Live at the Athenaeum (2020)

Genre: Stand-up, Comedy
Director: Thomas Toby Parkinson
Cast: Rhys Nicholson
Runtime: 65 mins

If you’re looking for some new comedy, check out Rhys Nicholson’s new special that makes its SVOD debut on Netflix today.

Here’s what you can expect:

“Rhys Nicholson flexes his biting humor as he discusses horse tranquilizers, angry letters from viewers, and more in this stand-up special.”
