It’s time for a complete recap of what’s new on Netflix in the United States over the past 7 days. In total, 42 new movies and TV series came to Netflix over the past week. We’ll also take a look at what’s trending on Netflix over the weekend and what’s done well in the top 10s over the past 7 days too.

We’ve already published our preview of what’s coming up next on Netflix which you can find in full here.

First, though, let’s take a look at a couple of new movies added to Netflix this weekend.

I Am Woman (2019)

Genre: Biography, Drama, Music, Romance
Director: Unjoo Moon
Cast: Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Danielle Macdonald, Evan Peters, Chris Parnell, David Lyons, Matty Cardarople
Writer: Emma Jensen
Runtime: 116 min

This movie was originally scheduled for release next week but we’re happy to see it drop on Netflix yesterday. It’s a small movie that didn’t get the attention it deserved when it released last year.

Here’s what you can expect from the movie:

“In the 1960s, Australian singer Helen Reddy struggles with misogyny in the music business — until she records an anthem for the women’s movement.”

Black ’47 (2018)

Genre: Action, Drama
Director: Lance Daly
Cast: Hugo Weaving, James Frecheville, Stephen Rea, Freddie Fox
Writer: Lance Daly, P.J. Dillon (story by), P.J. Dillon, Eugene O’Brien (additional material), Pierce Ryan (story by), Pierce Ryan
Runtime: 100 min

In the mood for a good war drama? You couldn’t do much worse than this action-filled movie headlined by Hugo Weaving.

Here’s the official description for the flick:

“When the Great Famine ravages his beloved country, a battle-hardened Irishman deserts the British Empire and exacts revenge on the tyrants responsible.”
