If you want to know what to watch this weekend then we’re here to give you the lowdown on this week’s biggest and best additions on Netflix USA. 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 USA:

It’s been another quiet week this week with just over 30 new additions but there’s still a good selection to choose from. The top film this week is a new Netflix Original starring Anthony Mackie. Outside the Wire is an action-packed sci-fi film set in the near future and tells the story of a drone pilot sent into a war zone that gets paired with a top-secret android officer on a mission to stop a nuclear attack. A popular addition this week has been An Imperfect Murder – this psychological thriller follows an actress who begins to question her reality about an abusive ex. In The Vanished two terrified parents launch their own investigation after their daughter goes missing on a family vacation only to discover numerous local secrets… For something a bit more laid back we have the dark comedy Spring Breakers where four cash-strapped college women run afoul of the law — and fall in with a shady hustler — as they join the annual rite of bikinis, beer and debauchery. Finally for films this week is the Brazilian film Double Dad where a teenager, who lives on a hippie commune, sneaks away in search of her real dad – but ends up finding two.

For TV this week we have part 3 of Matt Groening’s adult animated series Disenchantment has arrived and continues the tales of dysfunctional Princess Bean and her demon and elf friends. If you enjoy British romance series then we have season 4 of Last Tango in Halifax which follows two childhood sweethearts who got back together after 60 years. We also have season 5 of fantasy series The Magicians, anime series Kuroko’s Basketball and a new reality show about the lives of LA’s Asian and Asian American party population in Bling Empire.

For documentaries we have a new true crime limited series Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer which has detectives, survivors and relatives discussing a serial killer that targeted and terrified Los Angeles in the early 1980s. We also have Crack: Cocaine, Corruption & Conspiracy which explored the complex history of crack in the 1980s.

For children and younger viewers there is the classic Peter Pan film Hook where Pan, now a grown up, must return to Neverland in order to save a group of children from Captain Hook. In Penguins of Madagascar: The Movie the elite penguin spies team up to defeat the power-mad genius Octavius Brine. We also have seasons 1-3 of Henry Danger, season 4 of Netflix series Carmen Sandiego as well as Pinkfong & Baby Shark’s Space Adventure.
