Another busy day of new releases on Netflix in the United States with the return of a rom-com from the last decade, the sublime new seasons of the Danish political drama exclusively on Netflix, and a couple of other international highlights too.
Netflix added close to 40 new releases yesterday so if you missed any of those, head back to our recap here.
There are still a few titles to look forward to for the tail end of the week. The big new release tomorrow from Netflix themselves is INTERCEPTOR, an action-thriller led by Elsa Pataky and Luke Bracey.
Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for June 2nd
Borgen – Power & Glory (Season 1)
Cast: Sidse Babett Knudsen, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Simon Bennebjerg, Magnus Millang, Özlem Saglanmak
Writer: Adam Price
Runtime: 58 min
Awards: Won 1 BAFTA Award. 8 wins & 7 nominations total
Borgen is perhaps the finest political drama you’ve probably never seen before. All the prior three seasons are on Netflix (they aired over a decade ago) and the fourth season just dropped exclusively on Netflix today.
Here’s what you can expect from the fourth season:
“Foreign Minister Birgitte Nyborg finds her career in jeopardy when a dispute over oil in Greenland threatens to become an international crisis.”
The DUFF (2015)
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Director: Ari Sandel
Cast: Mae Whitman, Bella Thorne, Robbie Amell
Writer: Josh A. Cagan, Kody Keplinger
Runtime: 101 min
Awards: 1 win & 8 nominations
The DUFF has come and gone from Netflix before with it recently removed two months ago. It’s back now, however, and we’d recommend giving it a spin given how many high-profile actors there are in it that are currently in big titles right now.
Here’s what you can expect if you haven’t seen the movie before:
“When a smart teenager discovers her classmates’ degrading label for her, she enlists help from the school’s football star for a massive makeover.”
