Welcome to the weekend and Brits have a bunch of new movies and shows to dive into this week including some great new Netflix Originals, some older classics and some licensed movies that are debuting on the service for the first time.
Looking ahead to Netflix next week, we’ll see the military movie The Kill Team starring Alexander Skarsgård added this Sunday. The Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston rom-com Wanderlust is coming on Wednesday and the big new Netflix Original series for the week is The Cuphead Show! which arrives on Friday.
Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix UK This Week
Inventing Anna (Limited Series)
Cast: Anna Chlumsky, Julia Garner, Arian Moayed, Alexis Floyd, Anders Holm, Terry Kinney
Netflix’s headline new Netflix Original for the week stars Ozark’s Julia Garner in this already well-reviewed miniseries based on a true story.
Here’s what you can expect if you take the dive into this new limited series this weekend:
“Audacious entrepreneur or con artist? A journalist chases down the story of Anna Delvey, who convinced New York’s elite she was a German heiress.”
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Cast: Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Victor Garber, Jon Bernthal, Daniel Kaluuya
You can never go wrong with a good action movie and among the very best in the genre is Sicario which is directed by Denis Villeneuve who made waves in 2021 with the release of Dune.
The Lionsgate movie is about an FBI operating in the seemingly lawless underbelly of the United States to try and poor cold water on the tensions from the escalating drug war.
Everyone puts in a sublime performance in this movie.
The Hunt (2020)
Director: Craig Zobel
Cast: Betty Gilpin, Hilary Swank, Ike Barinholtz, Amy Madigan, Emma Roberts, Ethan Suplee
Our final highlight for Netflix UK is, sorry, another action movie which was released in 2020 but the chances are you haven’t gotten around to watching it.
The movie sees Netflix’s GLOW star Betty Gilpin feature in this twisted horror movie that’s produced by Blumhouse.
Here’s what you can expect:
“In this dark horror satire, wealthy elites hunt innocent ordinary citizens for sport — until one of them turns the tables on her pursuers.”
