Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:

The most popular film this week has been the horror film Mother! starring Jennifer Lawrence. The film tells the story of a poet and his wife who life in a secluded home however the poet is struggling to write. One night a stranger visits and he realises that the more madness and crazy things that happen, the better his writing becomes. But how will the intrusions affect their secluded lifestyle? Chris Hemsworth stars in Blackhat where a convicted super-hacker is released from jail so he can help a team of American and Chinese experts track down a cyberterrorist. Another popular addition this week has been the 2017 film Flatliners which many people don’t realise is actually a sequel to the 1990 classic and not a remake. The film follows a group of medical students explores life after death by temporarily stopping their hearts, unaware the experiment comes with terrifying side effects.

Other top picks for films this week on Netflix UK include the military action film Hunter Killer, the British period drama Victoria & Abdul and the dark comedy Dead in a Week… Or Your Money Back. British stand-up comic Simon Amstell also has a new comedy special available that is well worth a watch: Simon Amstell: Set Free.

If you like documentaries then you may be interested in American Factory which is the Obamas first release for Netflix and tells the story of a shuttered American factory gets reopened by a Chines company but there is a clash of cultures. There is also an interview with the Obamas about the documentary with American Factory: A Conversation with the Obamas.

For TV this week on Netflix UK there are a number of great additions. The third season of 13 Reasons Why has arrived and asks the question of “who killed footballer Bryce Johnson?”. Hyperdrive is a new Original series that essentially sends car drivers on specially created obstacle courses – it’s like Fast & Furious but in real life. Anime fans will enjoy season 2 of HERO MASK (or technically HERO≠MASK) and there are also series 6 of Call the Midwife and the Christmas episode of Channel 4 comedy series The Windsors.
