It’s been another quiet quiet week this week with 26 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.

Other action films this week include the video-game based Assassin’s Creed a man on death row gets taken by a secret organisation where he trains as an assassin for the secret Templar society. We also have 2008’s Rambo where Sylvester Stallone reprises his role as the titular hero who comes out of retirement to save some missionaries in Burma.

In the comedy film Instant Family a couple adopt three longtime foster siblings but they are anything but a family… Sputnik is a Russian sci-fi horror about a Soviet cosmonaut who returns to Earth only to find that he has brought something ominous back with him. Irish crime drama Broken Law tells the story of a dedicated police officer who must choose between family and the law when his jailed brother puts him in a compromising position. In the Brazilian film Double Dad 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 seasons 1-5 of American sitcom Superstore – set in St. Louis, a group of employees with larger-than-life personalities put up with customers, day-to-day duties and each other. 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. Two British series have been added this week that have been very popular additions. The first is BBC series Informer about an arrested man who gets pressured to work for a pair of shady police officers as an informant in order to protect his family. The second is ITV series Cheat about an ambitious university professor who accuses an entitled student of cheating on an essay which then triggers a test of wills with deadly consequences. We also have series 5 of Channel 4’s Gogglebox and a new reality show about the lives of LA’s Asian and Asian American party population in Bling Empire.
