This Week’s New Releases on Netflix UK (14th December 2018)

Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:

This week has seen some great films and TV shows added to Netflix UK with one of the most popular additions being the fantasy drama A Monster Calls which follows a young child coming to terms with his mother’s terminal illness witht he help of a giant talking tree. Harrison Ford stars in Ender’s Game – a sci-fi adventure that sees a handful of pre-teens defending the Earth against an alien bug invasion. Another sci-fi action film for families is Monster Trucks which is literally what it says on the tin – monsters that are inside trucks – what’s not to love?

Other films worth mentioning include the new Netflix film ROMA which is set in the 1970s and follows the life of a middle class family in Mexico City – the film is also showing in selected cinemas. Underworld: Blood Wars is the 5th film in the vampire series and sees vampire “death dealer” Selene battling dangerous vampires in order to keep her daughter safe. Finally for the film recommendations we have The Endless which follows two adult brothers who, as children, escaped a UFO cult but now an old videotape surfaces and brings them back to where they began.

If you enjoy documentaries then there are two great new Netflix Originals this week that you will want to watch. First up is season 1 of Sunderland ‘Til I Die which follows the trials and tribulations of Sunderland AFC during the 2017-2018 football season. Secondly we have the adaptation of John Grisham’s only non-fiction book The Innocent Man which discusses the questions surrounding two murder cases in Ada, Oklahoma, in the 1980s.

For TV series there are a number of new additions to existing shows as well as some new series. The new series include Turkish fantasy-drama The Protector where a young man discovers he’s part of an ancient, secret order and must save Istanbul from an immortal enemy. The Fix is a new panel show hosted by Jimmy Carr where comedians try to fix the world’s biggest problems. BBC crime series Paula is also worth adding to you watch list.

For new seasons of existing shows we recommend the new Christmas episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (classed as Part 1, Chapter 11); the final season of anime show Voltron: Legendary Defender; season 4 of Netflix’s family sit-com Fuller House; season 3 of Canadian sci-fi series Travelers; and season 4 of How to Get Away With Murder.
