What’s New on Netflix This Weekend: April 11th, 2020

Code 8 now on Netflix

We hope you’ve planned together a peaceful weekend during all the chaos and Netflix has a few new titles for the weekend plus we’ve got a full weekly recap of everything that’s hit Netflix over the past 7 days too. Here’s what’s new on Netflix for April 11th and 12th, 2020.

In case you’re a resident of Australia, Canada or the United Kingdom, we’ve got separate roundups that you can find from our what’s new on Netflix area.

Let’s now take a look at what’s new on Netflix over this weekend including the two movies available right now. No Patriot Act this weekend as it’s been delayed.


Code 8 (2019)

Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Director: Jeff Chan
Cast: Kari Matchett, Robbie Amell, Penny Eizenga, Lawrence Bayne
Runtime: 98 min

It’s rare that sci-fi movies with smaller budgets are worth your time but Code 8 absolutely bucks that trend.

Spawning from a short movie, this feature-length movie is set in the near future where humans with abilities are hunted down under police code 8. Alongside the police, there are advanced AI robots that assist.

Netflix US wasn’t the only recipient of Code 8 today. In fact, the majority of Netflix regions picked this one up and it’s well worth your time.


Bleed for This (2016)

Genre: Biography, Drama, Sport
Director: Ben Younger
Cast: Miles Teller, Aaron Eckhart, Katey Sagal, Ciarán Hinds
Runtime: 117 min

With the absence of sports on television Netflix has added a number of great sports movies over the past couple of weeks.

Bleed for This is perhaps the best yet. Written and directed by Ben Younger, the nearly two-hour movie dives into the life of Vinny Pazienza, a champion boxer.

Reviews were generally positive with Variety calling it a “significant return” for Ben Younger.


The Tiger King and I

Note: arrives on Netflix tomorrow

Tiger King is, without doubt, the biggest title to release on Netflix so far in 2020 and Netflix is keen to capitalize.

Tomorrow, a special will be released hosted by Joel McHale (who also stars in Community, added on April 1st, FYI) and will feature interviews with some of the stars of the docu-series.
