These days, relaxing at home has been completely redefined by the invention of Netflix. Whether you’re watching to unwind after a long day at work, spending a rainy weekend day indoors, or just want to have a low key date night in, Netflix is the perfect way to spend (or waste!) a whole bunch of time.
While we all have our favorite go-tos when choosing what to watch (hello, Friends), with so many new additions coming to the streaming platform, maybe it’s time to branch out a bit. Take a look at all the exciting content coming to Netflix and decide for yourself.
If you’re a fan of the show Bodyguard, then this movie is definitely up your alley. Sam, played by Noomi Rapace, is inspired by Jacquie Davis, who is a bodyguard in real life. Sam is hired in order to keep heiress Zoe (played by Sophie Nelisse) safe. Things get complicated when Zoe is threatened by kidnappers. The best part? The movie is both led by and directed by women.
Whether you’re a native Spanish speaker or not, this new Netflix movie will definitely keep you on your toes. Animas tells the story of a teenage girl who travels to hell and all of her adventures along the way.
Polar features Vanesa Hudgens in his first Netflix movie since the Christmas special A Princess Switch. Her role in Polar is quite that, a polar opposite, since the movie is a thriller. The movie also features Mads Mikkelson as Duncan Vizla, a top assassin.
Velvet Buzzsaw features a star studded cast featuring the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, John Malkovich, Toni Collette, Daveed Diggs, and Tom Sturridge. This supernatural thriller tells the story of the contemporary art world in LA. Art buyers will spend millions on works of art, and things get pretty interesting.
High Flying Bird
While we keep hearing that Steven Soderbergh is planning on retiring, it seems like he can’t stop making new shows and films. The latest of his movies is High Flying Bird, which features Andre Holland of Moonlight fame. The craziest part is that this basketball movie was all completely shot on an iPhone.
