Welcome to an end-of-week roundup of everything that’s come to Netflix in the United States over the past seven days. Below, we’ll recap all the new movies and shows to have hit the platform and take a look (via FlixPatrol) at what movies and series picked up the most points in the daily top 10s. 

In addition to all the titles listed below, don’t forget that Netflix also added a new episode of The Great British Baking Show on Friday, and for Love is Blind fans, the Reunion episode just went live on the platform, too.

Next week is going to be a bumper week for new additions with the release of the highly anticipated British series Bodies, Bill Burr’s directorial debut Old Dads, and lots more.

Now, let’s get into some of the new titles that have landed on Netflix this week:

Best New Movies and Series Added to Netflix This Weekend

The Misfits (2021)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Director: Renny Harlin
Cast: Pierce Brosnan, Tim Roth, Nick Cannon
Writer: Kurt Wimmer, Robert Henny
Runtime: 94 min / 1h 34m

Hitting Netflix for the very first time is the Pierce Brosnan-led action comedy The Misfits, which comes from The Avenue Entertainment. We’ll pre-warn you now: critics’ reviews for this one weren’t particularly strong, so keep your expectations somewhat in check.

In the movie, you’ll follow a sophisticated thief who joins a quirky band of criminals on the way to Abu Dhabi, aiming to secretively transport heaps of gold from an expansive commercial prison.

Chicken Run (2000)

Rating: G
Language: English
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Director: Peter Lord, Nick Park
Cast: Mel Gibson, Julia Sawalha, Phil Daniels
Writer: Peter Lord, Nick Park, Karey Kirkpatrick
Runtime: 84 min / 1h 24m

In September, Chicken Run sadly departed Netflix in the US, and just a month and a bit later, we’re pleased to say it’s rejoined Netflix ahead of the sequel set to launch in mid-December.

If you’ve never seen the Aardman movie, here’s what you can expect:

“A determined hen and a cocky rooster lead their feathered friends in a great escape from the farm to make sure they’re not turned into chicken pies.”

The sequel movie just premiered at the BFI London Film Festival which I was fortunate enough to attend and absolutely bloody loved it.

Camp Courage (2023)

Rating: PG
Language: English
Genre: Documentary
Director: Max Lowe
Runtime: 33 mins

Finally, the only new Netflix Original release to hit over the weekend is the documentary (that’s not quite a feature-length movie and not quite a short either) that looks into a story from a global news event that still very much dominates the headlines. We’re referring to the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe.

This doc follows one young girl who has been displaced by war and heads to a summer camp in the Alps with her grandmother.
