As we do every Sunday, we’re bringing you some of the most promising new shows coming to Netflix, so you know what to put on your watch list and what to ignore. During the week of September 26th to October 2nd There are some top-class Netflix newcomers, such as “Blonde” about Marilyn Monroe, which had already been labeled a “scandal film”, as well as numerous cinema titles. And then there’s a “Minions” project on Tuesday that needs a little explanation.
But enough of the preamble. Divided according to the day of the week, we present you with selected highlights from the upcoming Netflix releases.
At the start of the week, those interested in science will get their money’s worth. In the documentary “A Trip To Infinity” Renowned “geniuses” (the Netflix announcement) from fields such as mathematics, cosmology and particle physics explain what infinity is all about.
Neither Marvel’sDoctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness”, nor of the “Harry Potter”-Franchise belonging “Fantastic Beasts – Dumbledore’s Secrets” nor mega high-flyer “Top Gun 2: Maverick” is the most successful film of the year in Germany, but “Minions 2: In Search of the Mini-Boss”. Netflix obviously wants to benefit from the incredible popularity of the yellow guys.
Minions & More 1 is coming out this week and might get fans of Kevin, Stuart, Dave and Co. in a frenzy, but unfortunately we have to put it down. “Minions & More 1” has been announced as a “collection of various short films”. But the titles announced so far are all older, already available short films.
Of course, you can still hope that there will be at least one new short, surprisingly, but you shouldn’t really expect that. After all, that would actually be a promotional announcement. For the collection “Minions & More 2”, which will follow later in the year, only well-known short films have been listed so far.
With “Blond“ there will be what is probably the most discussed Netflix film of the year so far on Wednesday. Andrew Dominik devotes himself to the life of Marilyn Monroe with an outstanding Ana de Armas. With a lot of interpretation and fiction, he fills unknown gaps and, above all, destroys the myth. We don’t want to reveal much more here because we have already written extensively about the film elsewhere today. We also like to refer to our criticism:
In addition, Netflix has a top-class documentary series at the start. Remember all the excitement surrounding GameStop stock when amateur investors banded together online to take on Wall Street? With the mini series “Eat The Rich: How GameStop Stock Turned Wall Street Upside Down” the whole story is now explained and processed.
There are a few Sisi projects right now, whether in the cinema (“Corsage”) or as an RTL streaming series (“Sisi”). Now Netflix is following suit. In “The Empress” So we see from another angle how the rebellious Elisabeth falls in love with Emperor Franz Joseph, but soon finds himself at odds with the strict Viennese court as his new wife.
Friday is known to be the day when Netflix releases a particularly large number of large in-house productions, so we have to reiterate that this is really just a small selection. The second edition of the game show is likely to be of particular interest “The Floor is Lava” as well as the animated series heavily promoted by Netflix itself “Entergalactic” by and with rapper Scott Mescudi.
Of course, as DashFUN, we also want to point out an interesting-sounding film: “rainbow” brings the story of Hollywood’s super-classic “The Wizard of Oz” into the present. Paco León, who is also known as an actor from “Blumige Aussichten” and “Massive Talent”, focuses on the directorial work of a young teenager who experiences a bizarre odyssey in search of her mother. The trailer already shows that a lion crosses their path, just like in the original:
Saturday falls at the beginning of the month this week, and Netflix connoisseurs know what that means: On the first of the month, Netflix releases all the titles for which limited licenses have been purchased – including Hollywood movies in particular.
This week, horror fans in particular will get their money’s worth, as there are, among other things, “Annabelle 3”the remakes “A Nightmare On Elm Street” and “Friday the 13th” such as “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones”.
There are even more titles for October 1st in our monthly preview:
So far, Netflix only has the start of the Mexican reality TV series for Sunday “Siempre Reinas” announced. Here the show business icons and best friends Sylvia Pasquel, Laura Zapata, Lucía Méndez and Lorena Herrera, who are incredibly popular in their home country, are accompanied. It is rather questionable whether this is also of interest to many people in Germany. But since it’s the only title announced for Sunday so far, we don’t want to withhold it from you (and hopefully we’ve given you enough watchlist material with the rest of the titles).
And if you haven’t seen it yet, please check out Athena, available since Friday, September 23, 2022:
This preview is based on Netflix’s official announcements and is just a small selection of the titles promised. However, the films and series mentioned here may also be postponed at short notice.
