Happy Friday! We’re just ten sleeps away from Christmas. If you’re doing some last-minute shopping this weekend, you may want to relax into the evening with something new on Netflix. Here’s your rundown on everything new on Netflix US this past week and what’s been trending in the top 10s.

Looking ahead to the weekend, the 2014 Seth Rogen movie Neighbors drops tomorrow. On Sunday, Netflix will drop The Rope Curse 3 and the first season of Vivant.

For more on what’s coming to Netflix throughout the remainder of December 2023, check out our preview here.

Now, let’s dive into the new releases for this week including some top picks:

Best New Movies, Series and Games on Netflix

Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story (2023)

Rating: PG-13
Language: English
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Director: Neill Blomkamp
Cast: David Harbour, Orlando Bloom, Archie Madekwe
Writer: Jason Hall, Zach Baylin, Alex Tse
Runtime: 134 min / 2h 14m

Stranger Things fans will want to check out this new Sony movie that makes its SVOD debut on Netflix today, but even if you’re not here for David Harbour, you’ll likely have a good time.

Following a young teenager who has been honing his skills on the Gran Turismo video game, he hopes to make it to the big leagues after being accepted into the Gran Turismo Academy.

If you’re signing up to Netflix to watch Gran Turismo, like all other Sony movies, you’ll need to do so with a premium tier of Netflix as it’s unavailable on the advertising tier.

Grand Theft Auto Trilogy

Cashing on the fever pitch hype surrounding Grand Theft Auto VI, you can now play all three Grand Theft Auto trilogy games, which sees their Definitive Editions added to mobile for the first time.

You’ll need a relatively recently released phone to take full advantage of what’s on offer and a full battery as these games drain them fast.

Carol & The End of the World (Limited Series)

Number of episodes: 10
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Animation, Comedy, Drama
Cast: Beth Grant, Michael Chernus, Bridget Everett
Runtime: 34 mins

Bardel Entertainment is behind this new adult animated comedy that features a rather unconventional main character.

Here’s what you can expect from the new series that comes from one of the people behind Community:

“As a planetary apocalypse looms, a woman struggling to embrace end-times chaos searches for meaning in her last months on Earth.”

If you’ve been frustrated with Netflix not giving their animated shows additional seasons, you’ll be disappointed to hear that this is only set to be a limited series. On the bright side, it does wrap up into a neat package by the end, so there are no unresolved cliffhangers.
