Looking for something new to watch this weekend? There are a few new things coming to Netflix on Saturday and Sunday you’ll want to check out. Additionally, we’re taking a look at the upcoming week for Netflix’s new arrivals, and one of them is a really great video gaming docuseries.
There are a new things to check out this weekend. The 2003 film Johnny English arrives on Sunday, which sees Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) play a bumbling secret agent for MI5. Also on that day, the 2012 musical Les Misérables, which stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, and more, sing-talking their way through the literary-turned-Broadway classic.. The film follows Jean Valjean who has been hunted by a police officer in 19th century France.
Next week, there’s a docuseries about video gaming you need to watch High Score. Covering the history of video gaming can be daunting as there is so much history, but High Score actually breaks each episode up by genre, from fighting games to shooters to adventure gaming and more. It feels a lot like the series Toys That Made Us with fun animations keeping the story moving. It’s right up there with King of Kong as far as I’m concerned. You can learn more about the show in GameSpot’s review of High Score, which Steven Petite gave a 9/10.
Below, you’ll find everything arriving to Netflix this weekend and into next week. If you’d like a broader view at what’s coming to the streaming service, make sure to check out what’s coming to Netflix in August.
