A very quiet start to the week in terms of new releases on Netflix, but as we get to the middle of the week there are some new titles we can finally talk about. So here’s what’s new on Netflix this week in the US and what’s trending in the top 10 right now.
As we mentioned in our weekly preview, this week’s additions mostly come out at the end of the week. This week is all about the animated feature release of Wishing dragon.
Now we come to our highlights of the new releases so far.
Genre: Action, adventure, drama
Director: Mark Raso
Occupation: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Ariana Greenblatt
Writer: Gregory Poirier, Joseph Raso, Mark Raso
Running time: 96 minutes
The big re-release, added to the Netflix original library this week, is the new movie starring Gina Rodriguez, in which an explosion caused all of the electronics to fail and people’s sleepiness.
Most of the reviews are not on board with this action thriller, as one review says: “awakening is bad. But at least it’s so bad that it’s often ridiculously ridiculous: Netflix may have a cult turkey in its hand. “
If you dive in, let us know what you think in the comments below.
Genre: Adventure, drama, romance
Director: Mark Raso
Occupation: Gethin Anthony, Frederikke Dahl Hansen, Sebastian Armesto
Writer: Mark Raso
Running time: 98 minutes

If you’d rather see a Mark Raso movie that was enjoyed by critics, Copenhagen is back on Netflix after leaving in 2019.
Here’s what you can expect from the indie romantic film:
“William makes his way across Europe to find the grandfather he never met and unexpectedly befriends a 14-year-old who changes the way he sees women.”
Vampire Academy (2014)

Director: Mark Waters

The week kicked off with the return of a 2014 teen thriller. Mark Waters is directing who you may know from directing Mean Girls and writing Heathers.
The vampire movie was last seen on Netflix in mid-2017 after being streamed for three years.
The movie is a jump by most reports, but if you are obsessed with vampires, give it a try.
