Happy Friday and welcome to your daily recap of what’s new on Netflix. Today, seven new releases have just touched down onto the service ahead of the weekend, including the big new Chris Hemsworth movie, Spiderhead. Here’s a look at what’s new and what’s trending on Netflix for June 17th, 2022.
Still to come to Netflix this month we’ve got the SVOD debut of Sing 2 next week, the final season of Legacies, and the new Korean spin-off to Money Heist.
Today is your last day to watch Silver Linings Playbook starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence before it departs Netflix tomorrow.
Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for June 17th
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
Director: Joseph Kosinski
Cast: Miles Teller, Chris Hemsworth, Charles Parnell
Writer: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, George Saunders
Runtime: 106 min
Chris Hemsworth leads one of Netflix’s big new movies for the summer in the form of Spiderhead which comes from the same director that has had another massive hit over the summer in the form of Top Gun: Maverick.
Here’s what you can expect:
“A prisoner in a state-of-the-art penitentiary begins to question the purpose of the emotion-controlling drugs he’s testing for a pharmaceutical genius.”
While for many the ending didn’t quite stick the landing of what was set up (a very punny reference here) you’ll still get to see some very good performances and while we’re waiting for Black Mirror season 6, this will certainly scratch an itch.
The Healer (2016)
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Family
Director: Paco Arango
Cast: Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Jonathan Pryce, Camilla Luddington
Writer: Paco Arango
Runtime: 113 min
Returning to Netflix today is the feel-good drama The Healer which comes from Vision Films.
Here’s what you can expect from the movie if you dive to jump in over the weekend:
“A handyman who has hit rock bottom agrees to live with his distant uncle, who insists that his ability to fix things extends beyond the repair shop.”
The movie returns today having left Netflix in June 2021.
You Don’t Know Me (Season 1)
Genre: Crime, Drama
Cast: Samuel Adewunmi, Sophie Wilde, Bukky Bakray, Roger Nsengiyumva, Tuwaine Barrett, Yetunde Oduwole
Runtime: 55 mins
Arriving on Netflix today without much fanfare is the new courtroom drama series that originates from the United Kingdom and in fact, first aired on the BBC.
Now on Netflix with Netflix Original branding, here’s what you can expect from the series:
“When all the evidence points towards his guilt, a man on trial for murder uses his closing argument to recount his love affair with a mysterious woman.”
