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 into a new month we’ve had lots of new additions with 44 films added including Sucker Punch about a young girl who, while locked away in a mental asylum by her abusive stepfather, retreats to a fantastical world in her imagination where she and four other female asylum inmates plot to escape the facility. In the drama The Prestige Robert, his wife Julia, and Alfred are friends and assistants of a magician. When Julia accidentally dies during a performance, Robert blames Alfred for her death, and they become enemies. Both become famous and rival magicians, each sabotaging the performance of the other on the stage. In the sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest the alumni cast of a space opera television series have to play their roles as the real thing when an alien race needs their help. However, they also have to defend both Earth and the alien race from a reptilian warlord. In the crime drama Falling Down an ordinary man who has become frustrated with the various flaws he sees in society begins to psychotically and violently lash out against them. In the horror 10 Cloverfield Lane after getting in a car accident, a woman is held in a shelter with two men, who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack. In the classic 70s sci-fi Close Encounters of the Third Kind two parallel stories are told: In the first, a group of research scientists from a variety of backgrounds are investigating the strange appearance of items in remote locations, primarily desert regions; whilst in the second, electric company lineman and family man Roy Neary and single mother Jillian Guiler are among individuals in Muncie, Indiana who experience some paranormal activity before some flashes of bright lights in the sky, which they believe to be a UFO. In the biopic MANK 1930s Hollywood is reevaluated through the eyes of scathing wit and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish “Citizen Kane.” The Last of the Mohicans sees the last members of a dying Native American tribe, the Mohicans, Uncas, his father Chingachgook, and his adopted half-white brother Hawkeye live in peace alongside British colonists. But when the daughters of a British colonel are kidnapped by a traitorous scout, Hawkeye and Uncas must rescue them in the crossfire of a gruesome military conflict of which they wanted no part: the French and Indian War.
