We are slowly approaching the weekend and today, Netflix released a slew of new movies along with the big new seasons of Shadow and Bone. Here’s everything new on Netflix and what’s trending in the top 10 in the US.
There’s still a lot to come for the rest of March, with highlights including the agent of the night, disengaged, and The Wizard’s Elephant.
As we mentioned yesterday, there are a few titles to look for on the removal side. We would give a second recommendation to Lee Daniels’ The Butler (2013) furthermore I suggest you take a look at all i want (2017), XV: beyond the test lineand lu on the wall (2017).
Best new movies and series on Netflix for March 16, 2023
dragged across the concrete (2018)
Gender: Action, Suspense
Director: S. Craig Zahler
Cast: Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, Tory Kittles
Writer: S. Craig Zahler
Execution time: 159min / 2h 39m
Looking for a solid action thriller with two household names? Dragged Across Concrete ticks the boxes and is coming to Netflix for the first time today.
Entertainment Weekly gave the film a glowing review in 2019 saying:
“It’s a cliché to say that movies like this aren’t made anymore: nasty, nihilistic, nicotine-stained ’70s death trips. But thank goodness Zahler is doing everything in his power to prove that cliché wrong. ”.
This movie is sure to do well in the top 10 in the days to come and we suspect we’ll feature it again in our weekend movie roundup.
shadow and bone (Season 2)
number of episodes:8
Gender: Action, Adventure, Drama
Cast: Jessie Mei Li, Ben Barnes, Archie Renaux
Writer: eric heiser
Execution time: 54 minutes
After a nearly two-year hiatus, Shadow and Bone returns for a second entry.
Here’s what you can expect going into season two:
“Backed by a terrifying new army of seemingly indestructible shadow monsters and fearsome new Grisha recruits, Kirigan is more dangerous than ever. For a fighting chance against him, Alina and Mal assemble their powerful new allies and begin a journey across the continent to find two mythical creatures that will amplify their powers.
Fan reaction to the new series seems pretty strong so far, making a third season (and possible spin-off being talked about today) more and more of a reality. We’ll have to see how the audience looks in the coming weeks.
Barbie: Skipper and the great babysitting adventure (2023)
Gender: Children, Family
Director: steve daye
Cast: Kirsten Day, Alex Cazares, Julyza Commodore, Zaela Rae, America Young, Cassandra Lee Morris
Execution time: 62 minutes / 1h 2m
Rounding out our picks today is one for kids in the form of the SVOD debut of the latest Barbie movie, Skipper and the Big Babysitting Adventure.
Here’s what you can expect from the new one-hour feature:
“When Skipper’s babysitting business hits a snag, she takes a summer job at the water park, where her babysitting skills quickly come in handy.”
