Happy Friday and welcome to your roundup of all the new releases on Netflix in the United States for the end of the week. We’ll also take a look at the Netflix top 10s too. In total, 10 new titles were added to Netflix US today.
Although we’re not expecting anything new on Netflix this weekend, there are a number of titles expiring. These include:
- The Frozen Ground (2013) – Saturday
- Night Comes On (2018) – Saturday
- Dagh Ujala (2015) – Sunday

Now let’s get into the highlights of what’s new and we’ll be back on Sunday via the what’s new on Netflix hub for a complete recap of the week’s new releases.
Who Am I (2014)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Director: Baran bo Odar
Cast: Tom Schilling, Elyas M’Barek, Wotan Wilke Möhring, Antoine Monot Jr.
Runtime: 102 min
If you love Netflix’s Dark or are pumped for the next series from the creators, 1899, you’ll want to check out Who Am I which dropped on Netflix US today.
The German-language film could easily be compared to Mr. Robot in that it’s about hackers and specifically one hacker that seeks to make a name for himself.
It’s fast-paced and features the exact same writing that makes Dark the massive hit it is today.
Captain Fantastic (2016)
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Director: Matt Ross
Cast: Viggo Mortensen, George MacKay, Samantha Isler, Annalise Basso
Runtime: 118 min
One of the best movies Netflix has managed to license so far in 2016 is the Viggo Mortensen NYT Critics Pick Captain Fantastic.
The film is absolutely superb and if you haven’t seen it yet here’s what you can expect:
“A father raising his children off the grid begins to question his anti-establishment, utopian views when a tragic loss pulls them back into society.”
Genre: Animation, Family
Director: Jeremy Degruson, Ben Stassen
Cast: Kylian Trouillard, Alexis Victor, Marie Chevalot, Frederic Souterelle
Runtime: 89 min
For the kids and families this weekend comes a new animated movie from the studio behind The Queen’s Corgi and The Son of Bigfoot for which this is the sequel. The original is not on Netflix but for the most part, you can watch this as a standalone movie.
Here’s what you can expect:
“Bigfoot’s now a big deal. So when he goes missing, his shy but tech-savvy teen son must take on an evil CEO to save his family and a wildlife preserve.”
