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:

Popular films this week include Amy Poehler’s Moxie. Based on the popular novel of the same name, the film follows a shy 16-year-old who publishes an anonymous zine calling out sexism at her school after being inspired by her mom’s rebellious past and a confident new friend. A couple of the Christopher Nolan Batman films have been added this week with Batman Begins – the 2005 origin story/reboot and its 2008 follow up The Dark Knight. In the courtroom drama Black or White a widowed lawyer struggles to retain custody of his biracial granddaughter when the girl’s paternal grandmother questions his competence.

Step Up 4: Miami Heat is a romantic drama that follows aspiring dancer Emily as she falls for the leader of a dance team – but her father’s development plans threaten the team’s historic neighborhood. Another romance film is Crazy, Stupid, Love where Cal, whose marriage has suddenly ended, gets a helping hand from a smooth-talking friend when he tries to start dating again. Other additions worth mentioning this week include the crime drama Training Day; the sci-fi fantasy I Am Legend; the space-horror Jason X; the musical comedy Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny; and the classic drama Rain Man.

For TV this week we have the animated Pacific Rim: The Black where, after Kaiju ravage Australia, two siblings pilot a Jaeger to search for their parents, encountering new creatures, seedy characters and chance allies. The anime series TIGER & BUNNY takes place in the fictional city of Sternbild, where a number of years ago people called Next possessing superhuman abilities started manifesting themselves. Back in the present, some of these individuals work as corporate sponsored superheroes and their activities are documented by a popular reality TV show called HeroTV, wherein they are awarded points and ranked in order of their performance. The main focus of the story is on two of the heroes, the veteran Kotetsu T. Kaburagi aka Wild Tiger and the newcomer Barnaby Brooks Jr., as they solve their differences and learn to work together.

For documentary fans this week we have Nevenka: Breaking the Silence where the plaintiff in Spain’s first successful lawsuit against a politician for sexual harassment, breaks her silence after 20 years. In the true crime story Murder Among the Mormons high-stakes exploits turn deadly and shake a global church to its core. Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell features rare footage and in-depth interviews, while celebrating the life of The Notorious B.I.G. on his journey from hustler to rap king.

For kids and families this week we have City of Ghosts where we meet the Ghost Club, whose adventures take them all around Los Angeles as they interview ghosts, solve problems and learn about their city’s history. In Word Party Bailey, Franny, Kip and Lulu are adorable baby animals that want you to join the party and help them learn!
