Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to Netflix in the UK in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:
As the Covid-19 ‘lockdown’ begins to ease, many of us may still not be returning to work or going back to school and may be wondering what to watch on Netflix – well, wonder no longer! Here at New On Netflix we’ve put together a list of what we (with the help of our social media users) think are the best things that have been added to Netflix UK this week.
For Film fans this week we have Double World which is set in a fictional universe comprising ten nations. after seeing the neighbouring country become more and more powerful, a warlord organises a competition to reveal the best warriors. Hearing the news, Dong Yilong, a valiant young villager decides to take up the challenge despite the doubts of his village. In the independent film Puzzle Agnes, taken for granted as a suburban mother, discovers a passion for solving jigsaw puzzles which unexpectedly draws her into a new world – where her life unfolds in ways she could never have imagined. In the romantic comedy Seriously Single a commitment-craving social media expert can’t stop following the life of a former love. In The Last Samurai which stars Tom Cruise an American hired to instruct the Japanese army in the ways of modern warfare soon learns to respect the samurai that he has been ordered to destroy. Finally for films we have the Polish film The Hater which sees a duplicitous young man find success in the dark world of social media smear tactics — but his virtual vitriol soon has violent real-life consequences.
For TV this week we have The Umbrella Academy season 2, where a family of former child heroes, must reunite to continue to protect the world. In the anime series Trigun an outlaw named Vash the Stampede, who has a massive price on his head, wanders from town to town on a deserted planet that resembles the Wild West. Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy is an animated series set in the world of battling Autobots and Decepticons, and sees the two iconic leaders emerge. Finally for TV this week we have season 3 of Good Girls which sees three suburban moms orchestrate a local grocery store heist to escape financial ruin and establish independence — together.
For documentary fans this week we have The Speed Cubers which captures the extraordinary twists and turns in the journeys of Rubik’s Cube-solving champions Max Park and Feliks Zemdegs. Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons sees investigative journalists become voluntary inmates in the world’s most volatile prisons, where intimidation and brutality rule. finally for documentaries this week we have Last Chance U which follows elite athletes with difficult pasts as they return to junior college football for a last shot at turning their lives around and achieving their dreams.
For Kids and families this week we have the animated film Latte and the Magic Waterstone about a hedghog and a squirrel that must work together to get the foret’s water back from a greedy bear. We also have Sugar High which is a spin off from Sugar Rush and sees talented sugar artists compete over two rounds of competition for $10,000.
