Happy Thursday, and welcome to a recap of what new releases have been added to Netflix in the US so far this week. Below we’ll look at some of the highlights of the new releases and what’s currently trending in the Netflix top 10s. 

Although we’re getting towards the end of the week, Netflix still has a stacked lineup thanks to the fact we’ll be headed into a new month come the weekend. We’ve got your full preliminary list of what’s still to come this week, including new seasons of One Piece, Annihilation, Nimona, and more.

As a reminder, nearly 100 titles are leaving Netflix this weekend (we’ve picked out 11 must-see picks here), with highlights including American Gangster, all the Austin Powers movies, Bad Boys, and the Alfred Hitchcock classic, Psycho.

Best New Movies and Series Added to Netflix for June 29th, 2023

Run Rabbit Run (2023)

Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Director: Daina Reid
Cast: Sarah Snook, Damon Herriman, Greta Scacchi
Writer: Hannah Kent
Runtime: 100 min / 1h 40m

Premiering earlier in the year at the Sundance Film Festival, Run Rabbit Run is the new movie Netflix picked up from XYZ Films that features Succession star Sarah Snook.

Playing a fertility doctor called Sarah; the story is about her confronting old demons to keep her daughter safe after she starts exhibiting strange behaviors.

Critics are particularly split on the movie, with audiences scores thus far faring much better. SlashFilm’s review by Erin Brady perhaps best summarizes most critics’ opinions by praising the two leads but stating that the movie doesn’t quite know what it wants to be.

The Witcher (Season 3 – Volume 1)

Number of episodes: 5
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Director: Tomek Baginski
Cast: Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra
Writer: Lauren Schmidt Hissrich

Henry Cavill’s incredible run at being Geralt begins its ends with the first batch of episodes for The Witcher season 3 that drops today.

Here’s what you can expect from the new season:

“Destiny brought them together. Dangerous forces are trying to tear them apart. Geralt and Yennefer fight to keep Ciri safe as war brews on the Continent.”

If and when you fly through all five episodes from season 3, you won’t have long to wait, with the second volume coming on July 27th.

The Imitation Game (2014)

Rating: PG-13
Language: English
Genre: Biography, Drama, Thriller
Director: Morten Tyldum
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode
Writer: Graham Moore, Andrew Hodges
Runtime: 114 min / 1h 54m

At the beginning of the week, Netflix re-added The Imitation Game, which has come and gone from the Netflix US library plenty of times in recent years, but it’s always a welcome re-addition.

The Oscar-winning movie, for those unfamiliar, stars Benedict Cumberbatch playing the role of the mathematician who leads a team that eventually breaks the elusive Enigma code.
