At the start of each month, Netflix releases an avalanche of new content to keep subscribers hooked. On the flip side, it tends to hold back on big releases in the second half of the month. This week is unfortunately no exception with a grand total of five movies limping onto the service.
With that said, there are still some interesting titles to check out, including the time-travel flick Mirage, Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt and harrowing true-crime drama Delhi Crime. Here’s everything coming to Netflix this weekend (March 22 to March 24.)
This weekend’s Netflix lineup is a bit of a letdown, particularly if you’re looking for a new tent-pole franchise to sink your teeth into. Apart from the titles mentioned above, the only standouts are the documentary ReMastered: The Miami Showband Massacre, a new Star Trek: Discovery episode and the reality TV show Selling Sunset.
You might also want to give Baz Lurhman’s The Great Gatsby a go. Otherwise, it’s pretty slim pickings. (I’ll be re-watching the best episodes from Love, Death + Robots instead.)
