If you’re wanting to look ahead, we’ve got a preview of what’s set to hit Netflix on Friday and over the weekend here.

Now let’s get into a few highlights of today.

Red Dot (2021)

Genre: Drama, Thriller
Director: Alain Darborg
Cast: Johannes Kuhnke, Nanna Blondell, Anastasios Soulis, Kalled Mustonen
Runtime: 85 min

Fans of international cinema and thrillers will be at home with this new Swedish movie. The movie follows a couple trying to rekindle their relationship with a trip to a remote part of Sweden but it quickly goes pear-shaped as it turns out they’re being hunted.

Early reviews from audiences seem to be split so far. The reviews thus far praised the movie for having unexpected twists while others have said the plot remains largely forgettable.

Middle of Nowhere (2012)

Genre: Drama
Director: Ava DuVernay
Cast: Emayatzy Corinealdi, Omari Hardwick, David Oyelowo, Lorraine Toussaint
Writer: Ava DuVernay
Awards: 12 wins & 20 nominations.

One of the two Ava DuVernay titles added to Netflix today is Middle of Nowhere (the other being the 2008 documentary This Is the Life).

Middle of Nowhere is an intense drama that first debuted at Sundance.

Here’s what you can expect if you’ve not seen it before:

“After her husband is sent to prison for eight years, medical student Ruby shelves her studies to focus on her partner’s welfare as he serves his time.”

El Chema (Season 1)

Genre: Action, Crime
Cast: Mauricio Ochmann, Mariana Seoane, Julio Bracho, Sergio Basañez, Itatí Cantoral, Jorge Luis Vázquez
Runtime: 43 min

Our final highlight of today is the return of the Telemundo series El Chema which departed the service back in 2019.

If you missed it the first time around, here’s what you can expect from the 84 episode drama which rejoins Netflix today:
