Happy Friday! Welcome to your first recap of what’s been added to this week, where we’ve got 16 new movies, 12 new series, and 3 new games to cover. We’ll also look at what’s set to hit over the weekend and check in with the Netflix Top 10 movies and series.
Looking to the weekend, we’ve got another two A24 movies joining the service, with both making their Netflix debuts on Sunday. For fans of reality TV, you’ll be getting a season of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County to watch tomorrow.
If you’re looking for some things to watch on Netflix before they leave, we’d suggest going through a Despicable Me binge with both the first and second movie set to leave next Friday, with the latest Minions movie departing towards the end of the month.
Now, let’s get into the new releases for the weekend:
Best New Movies, Series and Games Added to Netflix This Week
Uncut Gems (2019)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Director: Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie
Cast: Adam Sandler, Julia Fox, Idina Menzel
Writer: Ronald Bronstein, Josh Safdie, Benny Safdie
Runtime: 135 min / 2h 15m
A24 movies are back on Netflix! By the end of this weekend, there’ll be 9 from the indie distributor and one we can’t wait to rewatch is Uncut Gems. This frantic and excellent movie stars Adam Sandler as an untrustworthy pawn shop owner who has a habit of getting in over his head.
This also serves as a great stopgap to the new Adam Sandler movie Netflix is in development, with one of the Safdie brothers directing. Sadly, that movie couldn’t get underway with filming over the Summer as initially planned, so this will have to do.
The Killer (2023)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Crime
Director: David Fincher
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Tilda Swinton, Charles Parnell
Writer: Andrew Kevin Walker, Alexis Nolent, Luc Jacamon
Runtime: 118 min / 1h 58m
It’s the height of the year for Netflix’s Awards play movies and headlining this week’s lineup is The Killer, the latest film from director David Fincher.
Our review just went live for the movie that currently holds a Certified Fresh rating. Our own Andrew Morgan liked it, too. In his 4-star review, he concludes:
“A return to the things that made us fall in love with Fincher over 25 years ago with more humor than you’d expect. Time to order a bucket hat & Hawaiian shirt for Halloween next year.”
If you’re going to see any comic book adaptation this weekend, make sure it’s The Killer.
Shadow and Bone: Enter The Fold
In case you’ve missed it, this week is Geeked Week, where Netflix has been unveiling projects left and right. One stealth drop yesterday was the release of a new game based on Shadow & Bone called Enter the Fold from a German game developer.
Reviews have been pretty good thus far albeit most fans are just clamoring to know whether we’re getting a third season of Shadow & Bone or not.
Keep an eye on our What to Watch section over the weekend for more Netflix recommendations.
