We’re midweek but Netflix has just dropped some absolute bangers onto the service. We’ve got nine new releases to cover for Netflix today including Illumination’s latest theatrical release and the new season of The Umbrella Academy. Here’s what’s new and what’s trending for June 22nd, 2022.
Despite having already released some big new titles this week, Netflix still has a few tricks up its sleeve as we hurtle towards the weekend. Coming to Netflix Friday is The Man From Toronto and the new Money Heist spin-off. In case you missed it, we covered 10 new releases yesterday.
Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix Today
The Umbrella Academy (Season 3)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda
Writer: Steve Blackman, Jeremy Slater
Runtime: 60 min
The Umbrella Academy returns to Netflix today after nearly a two-year wait if you can believe it. The show faces the challenge of toppling Stranger Things (for at least a few weeks anyway), but will it be able to do it?
Here’s what you can expect from the third season:
“After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns.”
The Mist (2007)
Genre: Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Director: Frank Darabont
Cast: Thomas Jane, Marcia Gay Harden, Laurie Holden
Writer: Frank Darabont, Stephen King
Runtime: 126 min
Joining the numerous Stephen King adaptations currently on Netflix today is the 2007 movie directed by Frank Darabont.
You may already be familiar with the story of The Mist by now but here’s what you can expect if you’re not:
“After a brutal storm pounds a small town, the residents discover a malevolent mist that hangs over their homes, killing anyone who remains outside.”
Sing 2 (2021)
