Here is your Netflix binge-list for the week, fresh from the Australian servers! This week’s highlights include the Netflix Original thriller Kidnapping Stella, two new documentaries and the glassblowing sculpture series Blown Away.
Read on for everything coming to the service for the week of July 8 to June 14.
It has to be said: Netflix played its best card early this month, with Stranger Things 3 dropping on July 4 to coincide with the US holiday. As a consequence, there’s nothing especially exciting coming to the service this week.
With that said, there’s still some noteworthy content to check out. In addition to the titles mentioned above, there’s also the fun, dumb actioner San Andreas starring Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, the 2011 adaptation of Journey to the Center of the Earth and the intriguing looking Extreme Engagement about a couple experiencing different marriage traditions from around the world.
Here are the official synopses and trailers for each film and TV show.
