Top Picks From This Week’s New Additions on Netflix UK (28th August – 3rd September 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 a new month this week there are almost 100 new additions to get through! As such this week’s post will be a bit briefer than usual – particularly for the films which will be grouped by genre rather than a description of each.

First up we have the dramas which include the Nazi concentration camp story of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas; the comedic but heartfelt The Truman Show; Ben Is Back which looks at how addiction affects the wider family; Italian film The Great Beauty where a journalist writes about the ancient city of Rome; crime film Bundy and the Green River Killer; the emotional film Worth about the value of compensation after the 9/11 terrorist attacks; and the 1984 classic Once Upon a Time in America.

If you prefer something a bit more lighthearted then we have the following comedies this week: French film 2 Alone in Paris about the last two people on Earth; British comedy All at Sea about a bumbled attempt to bury a late friends at sea; the somewhat silly The Internship where two failed salesmen manage to get an internship at Google alongside actual tech-savvy people; the war-themed buddy comedy War Dogs; and the romantic comedies Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde. Speaking of romance, we also have the new Netflix film Afterlife of the Party along with 90s sports romance Jerry Maguire.

For action fans this week we have Jackie Chan in Rush Hour and Rush Hour 2; as well as classic 60s war film The Guns of Navarone. Sci-fi film In Time is also worthy of a mention along with the thriller Gone Girl. And finally for films we have a couple of horrors with the 2021 reboot of Wrong Turn along with British indie film The School Of The Damned.

The big addition for TV shows this week has to be the first part of the final season of Spanish crime series Money Heist which follows a team of criminals as they rob banks in Spain with the help of a mysterious criminal mastermind. The final episodes of the show will arrive in December. Seasons 1 and 2 of BBC thriller Clique have been added this week and follows Holly as she starts university and gets involved with a sinister group of young women. For comedy series we have season 10 of Shameless (U.S.) as well as season 4 of Good Girls. We also have a new Netflix animated series Q-Force about a team of LGBTQ+ superspies as well as Japanese series The Ingenuity of the Househusband which mixes live-action and animated sketches. And finally for TV, if you like watching people on TV that like watching TV then you will be pleased to know that season 15 of Channel 4’s Gogglebox has been added this week as well.

We only have a few documentaries this week including a new behind the scenes look at Money Heist with Money Heist: From Tokyo to Berlin. The ‘series’ (just one episode) has the cast and crew discussing the emotional artistic process of filming the series. Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror looks at the immediate, as well as the long-lasting, effects of the 9/11 terrorist attacks including Al Qaeda’s roots in the 1980s to America’s response, both at home and abroad. Finally for documentaries this week we have the penultimate part of the Untold sports series. Untold: Crime & Penalties tells the story of the violent Danbury Trashers ice hockey team who were owned by a man with ties to the mob.

For children and families this week we have a few additions. These include the animated classic The Iron Giant; the magical comedy Ella Enchanted; the SMurfs take on the Naughties and Gargamel in The Smurfs 2; and for TV series we have season 3 of the action-packed PJ Masks and a new Netflix series Dive Club about a group of teenage divers who go looking for a friend when they mysteriously disappear.
