Elysium is now on Netflix – Picture: Sony Pictures

Welcome to your first daily recap of what’s new on Netflix for the week where 7 new releases have touched down on Netflix US so far. Here’s a look at everything new and what’s trending. 

If you’re midway through a binge of Gotham, we’d suggest speeding up given the series is due to depart a little later this week. Also, if you’re still in Royal fever, the British docuseries The Royal House of Windsor departs later in the week.

Coming up this week on Netflix, we’ve got all of the first of the month releases, but the big new release of the week, Blonde, hits Netflix tomorrow.

Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for September 27th

Elysium (2013)

Genre: Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
Director: Neill Blomkamp
Cast: Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley
Writer: Neill Blomkamp
Runtime: 109 min

So far, the new licensed title of the week is Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium, which IndieWire called “the brainiest Hollywood movie of the summer, it’s also the most conflicted one” back in 2013.

Here’s what you can expect if you’ve never seen the Matt Damon sci-fi flick:

“In the year 2159, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes, a hard line government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. “

The Munsters (2022)

Genre: Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Director: Rob Zombie
Cast: Sheri Moon Zombie, Cassandra Peterson, Richard Brake

Kicking off Netflix’s Halloween lineup today is Rob Zombie’s The Munsters, the new prequel/reboot of the classic 1960s series.

If you’ve watched the trailer or followed the story of The Munsters at all thus far, you’ll know reviews haven’t exactly been the best, and that continues to be the case today but if you’re in for some dumb fun, this is for you.

A Trip to Infinity (2022)

Genre: Documentary
Director: Jonathan Halperin, Drew Takahashi
Cast: Anthony Aguirre, Stephon Alexander, Eugenia Cheng
Writer: Jonathan Halperin, Alex Ricciardi
Runtime: 79 min

On the documentary front, A Trip to Infinity is the big new drop so far this week but be warned, it’s not a light watch or for the faint of heart.

The doc seeks to explore what exactly the word infinity means and its implications on the universe with testimony from mathematicians, particle physicists and cosmologists.
