Happy New Year’s Eve and if you’re looking for a new movie or series to watch on Netflix, then we’ve got you covered with the complete list of all the movies and series that dropped this week, plus a rundown of what’s been topping the Netflix US charts for the past seven days.

For more on what’s coming up on Netflix throughout January 2024, check out our complete list of upcoming titles here. Also, today is your last chance to catch a bunch of great movies on Netflix before they depart tomorrow.

Now let’s dive into three highlights from the new releases:


Best New Movies and Series on Netflix This Week

Elvis (2022)

Rating: PG-13
Language: English
Genre: Biography, Drama, Music
Director: Baz Luhrmann
Cast: Tom Hanks, Austin Butler, Olivia DeJonge
Writer: Baz Luhrmann, Sam Bromell, Craig Pearce
Runtime: 159 min / 2h 39m

Baz Luhrmann is known for his big, bombastic theatrical movies, and that’s encapsulated perfectly in his most recent biopic on Elvis Presley, which was released in theaters and nominated for eight Oscars.

Certified Fresh on RottenTomatoes, the movie was praised primarily from a stellar performance from Butler. Audrey Fox, in her review for Looper.com, said:

“Elvis is an operatic creation, one that is over-the-top and messy in places, yet in a way that suits its larger-than-life subject. It’s all anchored by a stunning lead performance from Austin Butler, who breathes new life into Elvis.”


Joker (2019)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Director: Todd Phillips
Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz
Writer: Todd Phillips, Scott Silver, Bob Kane
Runtime: 122 min / 2h 2m

Joaquin Phoenix plays a unique take on the classic Batman villain in this Oscar-winning movie, easily one of the best DC movies in recent years. It came with plenty of controversy at the time of release, as I distinctly remember police outside of theaters across New York in fear of what the movie may force people to do. Crazy times!

We’re getting another DC movie tomorrow in the form of Aquaman, meaning that you can quite comfortably bring in the New Year with a complete DC movie binge.


Tacoma FD (Seasons 1-4)

Number of episodes: 49
Rating: TV-14
Language: English
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Marcus Henderson
Writer: Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme
Runtime: 30 min
