We will aim to post every week on Thursday evening with what will be available over the coming week. Perfect if you’re looking to check out what new Originals are available to watch over your weekend or if you’re planning a week-long Netflix binge-watch! This area is exclusively for Netflix Originals, for general Netflix additions and removals or to view the current full catalogue check out your regional New On Netflix website.

Love Netflix Originals? Well here’s our list of ‘Top Picks’ for this week. Check out the trailers below and let us know what you’re looking forward to this week -a full list of this week’s additions and regional availability at the end of the post. Netflix aren’t always that clear about geographical availability so please bear with us as we try to be as precise as possible about where Netflix Originals will be available.

Army of Thieves

Ludwig Dieter is a cashier at a bank, he cracks safes in his spare time and he’s good at it. This does not escape the attention of a mysterious woman who persuades Dieter to join her team of specially skilled individuals in order to crack three ‘impenetrable’ safes and steal the contents in elaborate heists. The film unapologetically jumps on this narrative bandwagon which does appear to have become a genre of its very own although ‘Army of Thieves’ does have more comedy. A prequel to ‘Army of the Dead’ the film sees German actor Matthias Schweighöfer reprise his role as Ludwig Dieter, he is supported by a cast of Nathalie Emmanuel, Guz Khan, Ruby O. Fee, Stuart Martin, Jonathan Cohen, and Peter Simonischek.

Colin in Black and White

Activist Colin Kaepernick‘s high school years and his journey to becoming an NFL player are documented in this drama based on his early life. As the adopted son of a white couple, his daily fight for acceptance is what moulded his later desire to fight for injustice as an activist but not before he graduated and played six seasons for the San Francisco 49ers. When Kaepernick began taking the knee during the national anthem against racial injustice, his career was seriously impacted. After the 2016 season, Kaepernick found himself a free agent. Now 33 years old and an American civil rights activist, Kaepernick’s story is told through drama. The six-episode limited series is a fitting end to this year’s Black History Month.

The Time it Takes

Lina and Nico have come to the end of the road in their ten-year relationship. ‘The Time it Takes’ is an honest depiction of one woman’s journey through the process of separation. Lina finds herself in the darkness of grief for what they had until she can come to learn acceptance of her future without Nico in it, a process that only comes one moment at a time. A candid, sometimes raw, look at one of life’s greatest challenges and mental health. Starring Nadia de Santiago and Álvaro Cervantes.

The Harder They Fall

‘The Harder They Fall’ is a western movie in a different light. Idris Elba stars as Rufus Buck, a crime lord who has escaped prison and is now most wanted by outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors). What ensues is a high octave, action-packed, less-than typical (in a good way) western movie with an outstanding majority black cast that includes the likes of Regina King, Zazie Beets, LaKeith Stanfield, RJ Cycler and Delroy Lindo.

Catching Killers

Our final ‘Top Pick’ for this week is the documentary series ‘Catching Killers’, a true crime fan’s perfect show. The series looks at those involved in catching serial killers and the methods they use. Including interviews with those responsible for catching some of the most notorious killers and solving heinous crimes, the ten-episodes look at cases around killer spouses, hitmen and those who work in teams amongst other crimes; shocking and gruesome details are disclosed. Don’t say we didn’t warn ya!
