I’m Thinking of Ending Things

More info / watch trailer

A woman (Jessie Buckley) who is thinking about breaking up with her boyfriend (Jesse Plemons) finds herself spiraling down a psychological rabbit hole after making an unexpected detour with him on a road trip to meet his parents (Toni Collette and David Thewlis).  Sounds straightforward, but when I read Iain Reid’s novel that this is based on, well, it fucked me up.  So, the potential that lies in Charlie Kaufman (Anomalisa, Synecdoche, New York) directing this adaptation is immense (Plemons promises “Just wait. He Kaufman-ised it”).

The Devil All The Time

More info / watch trailer

Get a load of this cast! Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Riley Keough, Jason Clarke, Sebastian Stan, Bill Skarsgård and Mia Wasikowska. In Knockemstiff, Ohio and its neighboring backwoods, sinister characters—an unholy preacher (Pattinson), twisted couple (Clarke and Keough), and crooked sheriff (Stan)—converge around young Arvin Russell (Holland) as he fights the evil forces that threaten him and his family. Directed by Antonio Campos (Simon Killer, Christine) and adapted from Donald Ray Pollock’s novel.

Six-time Emmy winner Ryan Murphy’s latest sees him team up again with Sarah Paulson (who herself has scored Emmy and Golden Globe wins for her work with Murphy in the past on The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story). Paulson is Mildred Ratched, the bitter and jaded nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, in this prequel series that follows her infamous rise within the mental health care system of 1947. Despite a perfect exterior, there’s a growing darkness within Nurse Ratched…


A new Netflix comedy series follows a former sneaker collector who falls victim to his old addiction, and finds himself parted from a few thousand dollars behind his wife’s back. Hoping to score some quick cash before she spots his mistake, Devin assembles a group of entrepreneurial fellow sneakerheads to put their skills to the test and get their hustle on amid the world of sneaker collectors, resellers and flippers.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

More info / watch trailer

Eddie Redmayne returns in the second instalment of J.K. Rowling’s fantasy adventure series, with Netflix no doubt hoping you don’t let either Rowling or Johnny Depp’s recent conduct deter you from hitting play. At least Jude Law as Dumbledore is on their side, tasking Newt Scamander (Redmayne) with helping to defeat Gellert Grindelwald (Depp), who has begun gathering followers to his cause—elevating wizards above all non-magical beings.

A Star Is Born

More info / watch trailer

You’ve probably heard of this one—heck, you might even have seen it… Bradley Cooper’s hugely successful remake of the oft-told classic might not have won a ton of Oscars like many of us initially thought, but nevertheless impressed in many areas, not least of all Lady Gaga’s powerful lead performance.

World’s Most Wanted: Season 1

First they bring back Unsolved Mysteries, and now Netflix tickles our true-crime nostalgia nodes with this riff on a familiar title. It’s not clear how much DNA this shares with America’s Most Wanted, but this 5-part series still promises to showcase some five of the most dangerous crims on Earth—some still on the loose.

Project Power

More info / watch trailer

Jamie Foxx stars alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dominique Fishback (The Hate U Give) in this Netflix action film from the directors of Nerve and Catfish. A mysterious pill sold by New Orleans drug dealers unlocks five minutes of superpowers unique to each user, which sounds really fun and big and clever—but for some reason, buzzkill goody-two-shoes Foxx and Gordon-Levitt team up to stop its spread.

Cobra Kai: Seasons 1-2

More info

Taking place 30 years after The Karate Kid, this sequel series follows a middle-aged Johnny Lawrence looking to clean up his act and revive the Cobra Kai dojo. However, this respectable restart doesn’t go down well with his old rival Daniel LaRusso… Both seasons initially streamed on YouTube, it seems Netflix has not only picked them up, but also plans a third season.

North Country

More info

No, we’re not getting Mulan on the big screen as planned, but even though this isn’t exactly a family film, August is still a great time to check out Mulan director Niki Caro’s Hollywood debut off the back of Whale Rider. Charlize Theron was nominated for an Oscar, leading a ridiculously stacked cast (Frances McDormand, Sean Bean, Richard Jenkins, Michelle Monaghan, Jeremy Renner, Woody Harrelson, and Sissy Spacek) in this drama about the first major successful sexual harassment case in the United States.

The Old Guard

More info / watch trailer

Oscar winner Charlize Theron and Kiki Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk) lead this Netflix action film as mercenaries whose secret ability, immortality, threatens to become public knowledge. From director Gina Prince-Bythewood (Beyond the Lights), co-starring Matthias Schoenaerts (The Danish Girl) and Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave).

The Hater

From the director of NZIFF selection Corpus Christi and described by Tribeca Film Festival—where it won Best International Narrative Feature this year—as “a thrilling commentary on how misinformation thrives in increasingly polarized societies,” The Hater follows a disgraced law student as he enters the shady world of PR. Problem is, he turns out to be very good at the dodgy political stuff he gets up to online. Perfect election year fodder?


More info / watch trailer

Set in the Australian desert, Cate Blanchett stars in this series inspired by true events about four strangers—flight attendant escaping a suburban cult, an Afghan refugee fleeing persecution, a young Australian father escaping a dead-end job, and a bureaucrat caught up in a national scandal—stuck in an immigration detention center.

Unsolved Mysteries

More info / watch trailer

Netflix revives the classic investigation series with six new episodes detailing real cases of perplexing disappearances, shocking murders and paranormal encounters. It’s been “refreshed” by Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy, with each episode focusing on a single mystery (hopefully no less watchably trashy than previous incarnations). The reboot’s host-less format seems a good move—who could replace best-known presenter Robert Stack (RIP)?

JU-ON: Origins

The popular franchise, also known as The Grudge, gets the series treatment for Netflix in this season-long exploration of a deadly curse. The Japanese show pores over four decades of backstory, not shrinking from creepy shit, as you can see in the trailer.

Urzila Carlson: Overqualified Loser

“This loser is going global!” Urzila Carlson proclaimed on Facebook, announcing the worldwide premiere of her standup special. A familiar face to Kiwi live comedy fans and viewers of shows like 7 Days and Have You Been Paying Attention?, Carlson’s award-winning comedy now sets out to conquer the world of hour-long streaming specials.

Da 5 Bloods

With his first film since finally becoming an Oscar winner thanks to BlacKkKlansman, Spike Lee returns with this dramatic thriller. A group of former soldiers returns to Vietnam to retrieve both the remains of their beloved squad leader as well as a buried fortune stashed there decades earlier. They’ll also have to confront the legacies of the Vietnam War both for the country they waged war in—and themselves.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Why has this not been done before?! Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams star in this comedy set… guess where? Congrats, you now have all the points for correctly guessing the Eurovision song contest. The pair play Icelandic musos Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir, vying for musical glory against the likes of Dan Stevens, Russia’s contestant. Check out Lars and Sigrit’s music video, and get excited.

The Last Days of American Crime

To be honest, it’s anyone’s guess as to how this’ll turn out, but the premise somewhat intrigues—a near-future US government has developed crime-stopping tech, an audio signal that freezes law-breakers in place. OK, on the other hand this could be preposterous nonsense, but let’s find out what happens when a couple of crims try to pull off a spectacular heist. Edgar Ramírez , Michael Pitt and Sharlto Copley star, while Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3, Taken 2 & 3) directs. Hmmm.

Eric Andre: Legalize Everything

Eric Andre’s first stand-up special for Netflix sees the comedian performing Legalize Everything, the show he toured worldwide in 2019, including to Aotearoa. Netflix promises that Andre breaks the boundaries of comedy as he critiques the war on drugs, the war on sex, and the war on fart jokes!”

13 Reasons Why: Season 4

The once ultra-controversial drama show enters its fourth and final season, promising that dark secrets and heartbreaking choices will plague senior class’s upcoming graduation.
