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 we head towards the end of January we have some great new films to watch on Netflix UK. The most popular addition this week has been the comedy Booksmart which follows two smart students who plan on a night of teenage rebellion to make up for all the time they spent studying through high school. The horror/comedy sequel Happy Death Day 2U is well worth a watch and gets even weirder than the first film. As Tree (yes, that’s her name) has already survived multiple version of her own death but now her friends are the victims too… Below Zero is a new Spanish action film about a cop who must survive in the frozen wastelands after the prison transfer van he is driving is attacked and the prisoners escape.

The Dig is a period drama set just before World War II and based on actual events. The film follows a British widow who hires a self-taught archaeologist to dig up mysterious formations on her land, leading to a staggering find. In the psychological thriller The Vanished two terrified parents launch their own investigation after their daughter goes missing on a family holiday only to discover numerous local secrets… And finally for films we have the sci-fi/action film Hotel Artemis. Set in dystopian LA, a nurse patches up criminals at a secret hospital with strict rules – but when riots close in and the owner arrives, all bets are off.

For TV shows this week we have a couple of new seasons of current Netflix Originals. First up we have season 2 of the comedy show BONDING which follows a dominatrix and her gay BFF in New York City. In season 2 the pair are totally broke and banned from every dungeon in New York City so they must work to rebuild their reputations in the BDSM community. We also have the first episode of Snowpiercer season 2 which follows the lives of the last surviving humans that reside on a train that circles the frozen Earth.

For documentaries this week we have a new Netflix Original We Are: The Brooklyn Saints which follows a team of selfless American Football coaches training kids in the game but also teaching them important life skills. In Accomplice cameras follow the world’s top bike riders around the globe through breathtaking scenery as an homage to the bicycle.

For children and families this week we have the return of Gru and his Minions in Despicable Me 2; Indonesian family film June & Kopi about a family that take in a stray dog; and a new series Go Dog Go which follows a team of canine friends as they solve problems around their town.
