A Private War – Picture: Aviron Pictures

There have been exactly 100 new releases on Netflix in the US over the past week and if you missed any of the new releases, here’s your complete recap of what’s new on Netflix. 

Next week won’t be quite as busy as this week but there’s still plenty of highlights as we’ve covered comprehensively via our what’s coming soon section.

Now, let’s take a look at a few new releases this weekend.


A Private War (2018)

Genre: Biography, Drama, War
Director: Matthew Heineman
Cast: Rosamund Pike, Alexandra Moen, Tom Hollander, Faye Marsay
Writer: Arash Amel, Marie Brenner (based on the Vanity Fair article “Marie Colvin’s Private War” by)
Runtime: 110 min

Rosamund Pike is on a tear in 2021 thanks to the release of her Netflix Original movie I Care A Lot earlier this year. Three years ago she starred in the equally good A Private War.

Here’s what you can expect from the movie:

“In this biopic, war correspondent Marie Colvin risks it all to bring back the truth from the frontlines, despite the toll it takes on her own life.”

For some reason, the assets of this movie on Netflix are all messed up right now without proper cover photos or library photos. While we hope this gets resolved, don’t let that put you off this excellent biopic.


Kitty Love: An Homage to Cats (2021)

Genre: Documentary
Cast: Nicolette Kluijver
Runtime: 60 min

Netflix has a dedicated docuseries for dogs which is imaginatively called ‘dogs’ but today, it’s our feline friends turn to get a special documentary.

Produced from the Netherlands (although available with an English dub) the hour-long doc follows a famous feline.
