Welcome to your midweek roundup of what’s new on Netflix (and the first daily roundup of the week), where we take a look at the 11 new movies and shows that have landed on the service so far this week.
It’s the calm before the storm today, with tomorrow set to see a larger number of titles than usual on the service as we head into September 2022. That’s because deals for movies with big distributors like Sony and Warner Bros. are renewed. That means a lot of movies (nearly 100 by our count) are leaving Netflix tomorrow.
You can find everything new on Netflix every day through our What’s New on Netflix section.
The best new movies and shows on Netflix for August 31
I came for (2022)
Director: Babak Anvari
Writer: Babak Anvari, Namsi Khan
Execution time: 110 minutes
This new British-produced movie is the big new Netflix original movie of the week and features three big names: Kelly Macdonald, George MacKay and Hugh Bonneville.
Here’s the official logline for the new movie:
“Toby and Jay, a pair of rebellious young graffiti writers, regularly make their way into the homes of the wealthy elite and UK ruling class. When Toby breaks into the home of renowned former Supreme Court Justice Sir Hector Blake (Hugh Bonneville), he uncovers a shocking secret that leads him on a journey that endangers himself and those closest to him.
Michael: Tuesday and Thursday / Michael: every day (Season 1)
To emit: Bob Martin, Matt Watts, Tommie-Amber Pirie
Writer: Bob Martin Matt Watts
Execution time: 22 minutes
Netflix rarely, if ever, picks up shows from CBC, Canada’s state broadcaster, given that they have chosen to keep their titles to themselves in recent years.
In rare license, we watched 12 episodes of Bob Martin and Matt Watts’ little-known comedy sitcom series.
This is what you can expect:
“Michael’s therapist David is helping him work through his myriad anxieties about everyday life and unbeknownst to Michael, he’s writing a book about it.”
I AM AN ASSASIN (Season 3)
Gender: Documentary, Crime
Execution time: 52 minutes
Some streaming services like Discovery claim they have the best library of documentaries, but we’d argue that after the last two years, Netflix is by far the strongest.
The last season of I AM KILLERwhich comes from Transistor Films, adds to his wide range of crime documentaries.
Season 3 subjects include Victoria Smith, Deryl Madison, Daniel Paulsrud, James Walker, and David Cameron Keith.
