This Week’s New Releases on Netflix USA (24th May 2019)

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 USA:

Well, as we reach the back end of the month new additions are, as usual for this time of the month, a bit thin on the ground with only 24 additions to Netflix in America this week.

First up we have boxing film The Brawler which follows boxer Chuck Wepner as he struggles with being a celebrity after challenging Muhammad Ali for a championship title. February (aka “The Blackcoat’s Daughter”) is a supernatural horror film that tells the story of two girls whose parents forget to pick them up from a Winter break and they end up staying on at an all-girls boarding school in the company of a terrible presence… The Perfection is a new Netflix thriller/horror that sees a talented musician meet up with the star pupil from her previous school and a shocking discovery sends them down a sinister path. Independent film Moonlight is set in a crime-infested Miami neighborhood, a gay African-American boy with a drug-addicted mother grows up with the help of a mentoring drug dealer.

A new sci-fi movie worth watching is the new Netflix Film Rim of the World which sees a group of teens with nothing in common who are away at Summer Camp when aliens attack – they then have to team up to try and save the world. If you’re a fan of foreign language films then Furie has been a popular addition; this Vietnamese film (with English subtitles) sees a mother, Hai Phuong, head back to Saigon – and her outlaw roots – to find her daughter who has been kidnapped and to take down her abductors. And, for a quick half hour bit of silly there is The Lonely Island Presents: The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience – a spoof of notorious baseball stars Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire set in the Bash Brothers’ 1980s heyday.

For an interesting documentary take a look at After Maria – the short film follows three Puerto Rican women, displaced by Hurricane Maria, trying to navigate their families’ uncertain futures as their federal housing aid in New York expires.

For TV we have new seasons of some great shows including season 7 of CW’s Arrow, season 5 of CW’s The Flash, season 3 of Riverdale and season 3 of the Canadian horror anthology series Slasher. There are also a few Netflix Originals worth mentioning. First up is the new thriller WHAT / IF starring Renée Zellweger which follows a newly married couple who are looking to start a new business venture and accept an outrageous deal with a mystery investor. High Seas (aka “Alta Mar”) is a Spanish murder mystery series set on a luxury ship traveling from Spain to Brazil in the 1940s. And, lastly for this week’s roundup, season 2 of Spike Lee’s series She’s Gotta Have It has been added too.
