The Best New Additions on Netflix UK This Week (2nd April 2021)

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 film, TV and documentary additions on Netflix UK. 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:

It’s been a huge week this week with nearly 120 new additions to Netflix UK – the biggest ‘First of The Month’ drop we’ve had in some time. A lot of this is down to reduced availability as more studios create their own streaming services but Universal have been good to us here in the UK. As there is so much to choose from we obviously can’t cover everything so feel free to browse the full list further down.

For films this week we have over 100 to choose from! The most popular addition is the cult sci-fi film They Live which follows a drifter who drifter stumbles on sunglasses that allow him to see the truth: a world filled with subliminal messages and controlled by malevolent forces. In the romantic fantasy Stardust Tristan, in order to win his true-love’s heart, journeys to a forbidden realm to retrieve a fallen star that has taken human form. Death Becomes Her has been another popular addition; this dark comedy sees two “frienemies” discover the secret of eternal youth but find that it has a few unadvertised drawbacks… Another comedy, albeit with a horror theme, is The Final Girls – a spoof of 80s slasher films where a teenager finds herself trapped in the fictional world of “Camp Bloodbath,” a cult-hit horror movie her late mother starred in 20 years earlier.

The action-packed Western The Quick and the Dead sees a lady gunslinger arrive in a frontier town seeking revenge for the murder of her sheriff father by town boss John Herod. Arrival is a sci-fi drama about a linguist charged with finding a way to communicate with aliens that have landed on Earth who then uncovers a connection with meaning for mankind and herself. Another classic this week is Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing which chronicles various trivial events that bring festering racial tensions to the surface on a sweltering day in a Brooklyn neighborhood.

Other films worthy of a mention include David Fincher’s psychological thriller The Game; The Russo Brothers’ comedy You, Me and Dupree; the war-time drama Schindler’s List; Robin Williams as Patch Adams; and the crime drama Sleepers.

For TV this week on Netflix UK we have season 3 of the Channel 4 comedy series The Windsors – an over-the-top soap opera about the Royal Family. Real life horror series Haunted returns with Haunted: Latin America where people tell the story of spooky goings on that have affected them over the years. And, finally for TV we have season 2 of the hidden camera show Prank Encounters hosted by Stranger Things’ Gaten Matarazzo.

For those who like to watch a documentary or two we have the great film Sherpa which tells the lesser-known story of Himalayan guides who risk everything to support climbers on Mount Everest. Not a Game looks at our fraught, complex relationship to video games from the perspectives of gamers and their concerned parents. And in Worn Stories people pull out their old clothing to unpack the weird and fascinating stories behind them.

For children and families this week we have a number of new films including: The Borrowers, Shrek, Shrek the Musical, Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot, R.L. Stine’s Monsterville: Cabinet of Souls, The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure, The Flintstones and Beethoven.
