The Best New Additions on Netflix UK This Week (7th May 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:

As we’ve hit the start of a new month we had quite a lot of additions to cover so let’s start with this week’s movies. Popular additions this week include the horror film Drag Me to Hell where a woman crosses a Gypsy and then finds she has just days to try and stop her soul being dragged into hell. Another horror film this week is Thirteen Ghosts which follows a family as they move into their eccentric uncle’s old house only to find that it is really a prison for twelve ghosts who are trying to open a gateway into hell. For something a bit more lighthearted we have the Jack Black comedy School of Rock where a down and out musician pretends to be his flatmate and takes on a teaching job in a posh private school and decides to teach them about rock music instead of the classical learning they’re used to. We also have sci-fi comedy Men in Black: International which sees a new recruit and a veteran MiB agent taking up the challenge to save their secret organisation as well as protecting the Earth from shape-shifting aliens.

The action-packed crime film Baby Driver follows a smooth-faced music junkie and getaway driver Baby in deep with a bad dude – he’s got just one job left, but it’s all about to go sideways. The late rapper DMX stars alongside Nas in Belly where two hustlers, Tommy and Sincere, are trying to move out of the ghetto and get a taste of the good life. Eagle Eye is a thrilling action film where two strangers end up being manipulated by a mysterious woman pushing them further into danger resulting in them being wanted terrorists being pursued by the FBI.

Other films worth mentioning this week include the 90s thriller Wild Things; courtroom drama Monster; the 2003 remake of The Italian Job; the mystery thriller Premonition; as well as a number of Polish films such as Clergy, Exterminator: Ready to Roll and The Lure.

For TV on Netflix UK this week we have a brand new Original series Jupiter’s Legacy. The superhero series, based on the popular comics by Mark Millar, follows the first generation of superheroes as they pass the torch to their children – but tensions are rising and the old rules no longer apply. Season 1 and 2 of Crackle Original StartUp have also arrived this week and follows a group of shady entrepreneurs working with a corrupt FBI agent and a local gang as they try to launder money for a new cryptocurrency. We also have season 3 of sci-fi drama Colony and season 3 and 4 of the reality series Below Deck.

For documentaries we have a new true crime series that takes a different approach to the story. The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness looks into the infamous 1977 Son of Sam case but focuses on one man’s obsession with the case and a number of leads that he believes the police missed. The late Prince Philip is remembered in Prince Philip: An Extraordinary Life which looks at his life and influence over the years across shifting political and social climates. And finally for documentaries this week we have Unrest where a 28-year-old Ph.D. student turns the camera on herself to capture her struggles with chronic fatigue syndrome.

For families this week we have a few film additions such as the animated, animal-themed comedy The Secret Life of Pets 2; classic 90s Jim Carrey comedy Ace Ventura: Pet Detective; and the 3D animated adaptation of The Adventures of Tintin.
