The Shack – Picture: Lionsgate

Happy Friday and welcome to a bumper Friday edition of what’s new on Netflix. While it’s not all gold, there’s still plenty new to watch on Netflix this weekend. Let’s take a look at everything new and what’s trending on Netflix for December 10th, 2021. 

Quick housekeeping before we dig in. No major removals but as we mentioned in yesterday’s roundup, you really want to be binging through Halt and Catch Fire before it departs early next week.

Best New Movies & Shows on Netflix for December 10th, 2021

Back to the Outback (2021)

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Director: Harry Cripps, Clare Knight
Cast: Jacki Weaver, Guy Pearce, Isla Fisher
Writer: Harry Cripps, Gregory Lessans
Runtime: 95 min

2021 has been a fantastic year for new animated feature films and Netflix isn’t done just yet. Of the two major animated films coming in December, Back to the Outback has been on our radars for quite some time.

The new movie flips the script on characteristics you’d expect from animals from the zoo. Animals you’d traditionally consider nice and cuddly are nasty while the more dangerous critters become friendly.

Back to the Outback sees our cast escape from the zoo in the hopes of going home.

The Shack (2017)

Genre: Drama, Fantasy
Director: Stuart Hazeldine
Cast: Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer, Tim McGraw
Writer: John Fusco, Andrew Lanham, Destin Daniel Cretton
Runtime: 132 min

Sticking with movies, we’ve got one of the few licensed English language movies added this month. From Lionsgate, this movie didn’t hit it off with critics four years ago but audiences’ scores are much more favorable.

Here’s what you can expect from the movie if you’ve not seen it yet:

“After suffering a tragic loss, Mack Phillips seeks answers from a mysterious letter urging him to visit a deserted shack in the Oregon wilderness.”

The Unforgivable (2021)

Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Nora Fingscheidt
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Viola Davis, Vincent D’Onofrio
Writer: Peter Craig, Hillary Seitz, Courtenay Miles
Runtime: 112 min

The big new movie Netflix wants you watching this weekend is The Unforgiveable which sadly didn’t get the reception from critics it wanted.

Sandra Bullock carries the new crime drama which is about a woman released from prison but finding that getting a new life isn’t quite as easy as she’d first expected.


Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story (Limited Series)

Genre: Crime, Documentary
Director: Eric Goode, Rebecca Chaiklin

Further cashing in on the Tiger King boom Netflix experience during the first parts of the pandemic and releasing just weeks after season 2, we’ve got a new limited series further digging into Doc Antle’s story.

The new limited series is three episodes long and has been getting a lukewarm reception from critics (just like season 2 did).
