Netflix’s big new German-language sci-fi offering lands today and it’s been on our watch queue for quite some time.

MovieWeb wasn’t a huge fan of it when it published its review a week ago, saying that while it has the foundations of a brilliant sci-fi thriller, it doesn’t do much with it.

Here’s what you can expect from the story:

“A man sees the dark side of the time-manipulating biotech company he works for when a crushing debt forces his wife to give up 40 years of her own life.”

The Witcher (Season 3 – Volume 2)

Number of episodes: 3
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Director: Tomek Baginski
Cast: Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra
Writer: Lauren Schmidt Hissrich

Episodes 6, 7, and 8 (also known as Henry Cavill’s last hurrah as Geralt) have just dropped onto Netflix, rounding out the third season of The Witcher.

Kicking off the new season, the hunt for Ciri seemingly comes to a head as sides are chosen, and enemies are unmasked with war looming for the Continent.

Alongside adding the final batch of episodes today, Netflix dropped another companion documentary for the series. The 30-minute documentary takes you behind the scenes on the third season’s production.

Big Eyes (2014)

Rating: PG-13
Language: English
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Director: Tim Burton
Cast: Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Danny Huston
Writer: Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski
Runtime: 106 min / 1h 46m

Rewinding to the beginning of the week, we saw the BAFTA-nominated movie Big Eyes return to the streaming service.

Last seen on Netflix a little earlier in the year, the movie is about an artist struggling to get out of her husband’s shadow.

We should also note that if you’re on Netflix’s advertising tier, this movie isn’t available for you to watch.

The Rolling Stone gave the movie a glowing review back in December 2014, concluding, “For all its tonal shifts and erratic pacing, the film is Burton’s heartfelt tribute to the yearning that drives even the most marginalized artist to self-expression no matter what the hell anyone thinks.”
