Welcome back to a look at everything new on Netflix over the past week, plus some highlights we’ve yet to cover in our daily recaps. We’ll also examine what movies and series featured in the Netflix US top 10s over the past week.
Want to see what’s coming up next? The Night Agent headlines Netflix’s lineup over the next seven days, plus we’re constantly getting new titles added to the April 2023 schedule.
Movies and Series You May Have Missed on Netflix This Week
Agent Elvis (Season 1)
Genre: Animation, Action, Comedy
Cast: Matthew McConaughey
Writer: Priscilla Presley, John Eddie
Runtime: 30 mins
What happens if Elvis Presley trades in his iconic jumpsuit for a job within the CIA? This series, endorsed and co-created by Priscella Presley, seeks to answer that question.
Having watched all episodes, this will undoubtedly be one of the underappreciated gems of 2023. Not only is the cast worth checking this series out, but it’s got killer humor and some excellent animation which is expected given it’s from Sony Pictures Animation and Titmouse.
Kick-Ass 2 (2013)
Genre: Action, Comedy, Crime
Director: Jeff Wadlow
Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Writer: Jeff Wadlow, Mark Millar, John Romita Jr.
Runtime: 103 min / 1h 43
While sadly not as good as the first movie (which Netflix didn’t manage to nab – it’s streaming on HBO Max at the time of publishing), Kick-Ass 2 is still a good action comedy romp to cap off your week.
Four years after retiring, Kick-Ass returns to take on a new supervillain, while Hit Girl faces a truly daunting challenge: high school.
Given Netflix’s connection to the source material (it bought up Millarworld and its various properties), this one is absolutely worth watching, given the huge slate of upcoming adaptations of their works.
Maestro in Blue
Number of episodes: 9
Genre: Mystery, Romance, Crime, Drama
Director: Christoforos Papakaliatis
Cast: Christoforos Papakaliatis, Haris Alexiou, Maria Kavoyianni, Fanis Mouratidis, Marisha Triantafyllidou, Yannis Tsortekis
Runtime: 53 mins
If you’re a fan of Netflix’s international output, we have to give our thumbs up and suggestion to give Maestro in Blue a look. The Greek series is a crime mystery akin to the likes of The Sinner and follows a musician that goes to lead a festival on an island but finds himself entwined in multiple problems, including a new romance.
The series aired in 2022 and received glowing reviews from local media and holds an 8.5 out of 10 on IMDb.
