As previously reported, Netflix is pulling the brakes next month with only a tiny handful of big, flashy releases coming to the service. In stark contrast, this weekend is actually pretty great! In addition to plenty of Netflix Originals there are 12 third-party movies coming. This includes the beloved '80s classic Dirty Dancing, the live-action Charlotte's Web, the amusing Ghost Town and World War Z.

But for us, this weekend is all about The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. (Please, please, please don't suck.)

Here are the synopses and trailers for everything landing on Netflix Australia this weekend.

Ditch Netflix In September (You Won't Be Sorry)

Netflix Australia is about to enter one of its worst dry spells since launch. In September 2019, the service is only adding three new original movies (none of which look like much cop.) With the possible exception of The Politician, there aren't any big 'tent-pole' style series to get excited about either.

In fact, Netflix's biggest release of the month is probably the widely-panned Aquaman which nobody should watch under any circumstances. Our advice? Unsubscribe for one month and check out some of Netflix's rivals instead.
