This Week’s New Releases on Netflix USA (26th July 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:

One of the more popular addition this week is a brand new documentary called The Great Hack which tells the story of the Facebook and Cambridge Analytica scandal. In early 2018 it was revealed that Cambridge Analytica had exploited the personal data of millions of Facebook users – without their knowledge or consent – and used them for political propaganda during the 2016 US Presidential elections. At just under 2 hours, however, it may seem like a daunting watch.

For films this week we have the horror film 1st Summoning where student filmmakers uncover occult rituals tied to an abandoned warehouse, then gradually realize the horror is closer than they think. Romantic comedy The Competition sees a blogger and a lawyer testing the effectiveness of an ‘infidelity formula’. There are also two war-themed films with The Exception sees a Nazi officer begin a steamy affair with a Dutch maid; and Inglourious Basterds sees US troops face off with the Nazis in a French cinema.

We have a couple of highly-rated foreign-language films this week too including the French comedy/horror Girls With Balls which sees a female volleyball team fighting off a team of cannibals after their bus breaks down in a forest. And, finally for new films on Netflix UK this week, we have Eerie – a Filipino supernatural horror that sees a clairvoyant guidance counsellor dealing with a ghost to find out why a student committed suicide.

For TV we have the seventh and final series of Orange Is the New Black – one of Netflix’s oldest Original series. The show initially followed Piper Chapman as she is sent to an all-female prison for some historical drug-related crimes. Over the years, however, Chapman has become a smaller character and the show concentrates on the lives of many fellow inmates as they adjust to change in the wake of a massive prison riot in Season 5.  TV. A new Netflix Original series has been added this week that has, so far, had some fairly polarising reviews. Another Life is a sci-fi drama series that sees an interstellar mission to track down the source of a massive alien artefact that landed on Earth. And, finally for TV, we have the return of Storage Wars: Northern Treasures.

And finally for this week Netflix has added the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest from Tel Aviv and has also announced that next year’s contest will also arrive next year.

Don’t forget to look at the most popular additions this week and for all the Netflix Originals added today you can read our separate post.
