In a change of pace, one of the biggest titles new on Netflix this week isn't a Netflix original. Bullet Train, starring Brad Pitt and a slew of other famous folks, hits Netflix this week and is a likely entrant to our list of the best Netflix movies roundup.
As someone who saw it in theaters, I can attest to the fact that Bullet Train is a fun and funny shot of adrenaline. It feels like what would happen if you asked someone to make a John Wick movie that was funny and more about an ensemble than its star. Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta, Causeway, Eternals) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass, Avengers: Age of Ultron) practically steal the whole film, while Bad Bunny's role as a hitman named The Wolf is memorable in its own right. It's just one of the 7 best new movies to watch this week on Netflix, HBO Max and Prime Video.
Also this week, we've got a big return of a popular Netflix show that's already nearing its end. Firefly Lane: Season 2 Part 1 will kick things off for the final chapter of Kate (Sarah Chalke) and Tully (Katherine Heigl)'s life-long story of friendship.
One new movie sure to get people talking is Netflix's adaptation of the D.H. Lawrence novel Lady Chatterly's Lover. This edition stars Emma Corrin (Princess Diana from The Crown) and Jack O'Connell (Skins)!
Elsewhere, Robert Downey Jr. pays tribute to his father, iconic filmmaker Robert Downey Sr., in "Sr." Also, get ready for more JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean, and Snack VS. Chef, a tasty-looking food competition series where chefs look to re-invent classic snacks. If done right, it could make it to our list of the best Netflix shows. Speaking of new shows, those with Disney Plus may want to watch Willow online, as the aspiring sorcerer has returned.
But that's what's already come out, here's what's new on Netflix this week:
