Happy Thursday and welcome to a busy day of new releases on Netflix US. We’ve got eight new additions to cover (technically 13 if you count all the variations of one of the movies added) and we’ll also touch on what’s trending on Netflix in the US in the top 10s.
As mentioned in our roundup yesterday, not many removals coming up over the next week but if you haven’t seen House of the Witch, we’d advise you to add it to your watch list now.
Tomorrow we’ll see the release of the new Metal Lords movie from D. B. Weiss which is splitting opinions among critics. We’ll also see two new K-dramas begin dropping weekly episodes over the weekend in the form of My Liberation Notes and Our Blues. On Sunday two excellent movies in the form of Nightcrawler and The Call drop onto Netflix.

There’s no better time to watch a Christmas movie than… early April? Well, that’s what Netflix is hoping with this curious movie license that comes from 20th Century Fox (who hasn’t licensed movies to Netflix in years).
It’s not particularly well-reviewed but if you want to see Danny DeVito in a Christmas setting, this is the perfect movie for you.
