AXL is back on Netflix this week – Picture: Open Road Films

Welcome to another weekend roundup of everything new on Netflix over the past 7 days. Netflix US has seen 32 new movies and shows added over the past week, which we’ll list below. We’ll also be covering what’s new on Netflix over the weekend.

How does this week’s Netflix US haul compare to other regions? The answer is pretty much the same. Netflix UK saw 36 new movies and shows added while Netflix Australia added just under 30 new releases.

Next week is shaping up to be a lot lighter when it comes to new releases with just 10 movies and shows slated as of press time. We’ll be back on Sunday for a full weekend recap.


Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix and What You May Have Missed

AXIS (2018)

Kind: Action, Adventure, Drama
Director: Olivier Daly
To throw: Alex Neustaedter, Becky G, Alex MacNicoll
Writer: Olivier Daly
Duration: 98 minutes

Returning to Netflix US this weekend after 18 months away from the service is AXIS from Open Road Films.

The sci-fi family movie is a must-watch for anyone who has recently finished watching The Adam Project. AXL follows a young motocross racer named Miles Hill who helps a top-secret robotic fighting dog escape his ruthless creator and the military.


Saved by Ruby (2022)

Kind: Biography, Drama, Family
Director: Shea Katt
To throw: Grant Gustin, Scott Wolf, Kaylah Zander
Writer: Karen Janszen
Duration: 90 minutes

One title we missed in our daily recaps last week was Rescued by Ruby, a new movie starring The Flash’s Grant Gustine.

The film received excellent reviews from audiences, but has yet to make it into the top 10 films.

Rescued by Ruby is based on a true story following a state trooper named Dan pursuing his dream of becoming part of the coveted K-9 unit.


The great robbery of the Central Bank of Brazil (Season 1)

Kind: Crime, Documentary
Director: Daniel Billio
Duration: 61 minutes

And finally, for true crime fans, most of the attention has been focused on bad vegan this week, but we also recommend watching this movie which will also be a great watch for anyone who is a fan of Money theft.

The doc flashes back to 2005 and one of the biggest heists in Brazilian history that claimed 160 million reais.
