45 New Movies and TV Shows Added to Netflix Canada This Week

It was another good week for Netflix Canada as 45 new movies and TV shows were added to the library.

First, here are the highlights of the past week:

Minions (2015)

Director: Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin
Gender: Animated, Comedy | Duration: 90 minutes
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Steve Coogan

One of the most popular fictional franchises of the past decade, much of the credit goes to the Minions, Gru’s lovable horde of little helpers. Everyone has an origin story in Hollywood now, Minions included.

From the dawn of the dinosaurs to Napoleon, Minions have spent eons searching for a master of true evil to serve. Stuart, Kevin and Bob are then recruited by Scarlett Overkill, a supervillain who, alongside her husband Herb, hatches a plot to take over the world.

Tom and Jerry (2021)

Director: Tim’s story
Gender: Animation, Adventure, Comedy| Duration: 101 minutes
Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Colin Jost, Jordan Bolger, Rob Delaney

There’s always a risk in taking a beloved old franchise like Tom and Jerry and throwing it into the modern era. At the very least, the designs of the classic pair stayed the same and took advantage of modern animation techniques.

A chaotic battle ensues between Jerry Mouse, who has taken refuge in the Royal Gate Hotel, and Tom Cat, who is hired to hunt him down before a big wedding day arrives.

Les Miserables (2012)

Director: Tom Hoper
Genre: Drama, Musical, Romance | Duration:
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Russel Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen

One of the most ambitious film adaptations of a musical, Les Miserables won three Oscars, including Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for Anne Hathaway.

In 19th century France, ex-convict Jean Valjean was ruthlessly hunted down by policeman Javert for breaking his parole. Their life, and that of many others, changes forever when Jean Valjean adopts Cosette, the young daughter of his former worker, Fantine.
