Netflix this week (April 5-11) plans to add 10 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including nine originals.
The new titles will include The Main Event, a Netflix original film about an 11-year-old who schemes to join the WWE; Brews Brothers, a Netflix original comedy series starring Alan Aisenberg and Mike Castle as two estranged brothers who wind up co-running a brewery; and Love Wedding Repeat (pictured above), a Netflix original romantic comedy film starring Olivia Munn in a Rashomon-like look at a marriage ceremony.
Also notable this week: The Killing of a Sacred Deer, a 2017 psychological drama starring Colin Farrell as a successful surgeon who befriends a teenage boy who mysteriously becomes ill. Nicole Kidman plays Farrell’s wife.
“Working as a profound meditation on karma, predestination and guilt and a proper scary movie, (The Killing of a Sacred Deer) is near career-best work from all involved. Be warned: this is tough stuff,” writes Andrew Lowry of Empire Magazine.
