Netflix releases new movies and shows, featuring Paul Rudd and Eli Roth


This week, Netflix is offering a fantastic lineup of new movies and shows for subscribers to enjoy. From holiday horror to World War II dramas, there's something for everyone. Let's dive into the cream of the crop and explore the most exciting content newly available on the platform.

First up is 'Eli Roth's Thanksgiving,' a holiday horror movie with a twist. Set in Plymouth, Massachusetts, a Black Friday riot turns deadly, igniting a series of gruesome revenge killings inspired by the holiday. Director Eli Roth infuses the slasher genre with his signature offbeat humor, taking it to a whole new level of sophistication. This film stars Patrick Dempsey, Addison Rae, and Milo Manheim and delivers nail-biting scares and wickedly dark humor.

Next, we have 'Warrior,' a series set in San Francisco's Chinatown during the late 19th century. The story follows Ah Sahm, a newcomer with incredible martial arts skills, who becomes embroiled in the brutal gang wars of Chinatown. Based on original concepts by martial arts legend Bruce Lee, this gritty series explores power struggles and loyalty in a tumultuous underworld. Originally aired on HBO, 'Warrior' has found a new home on Netflix and may even see a revival if it captures the audience's imagination.

For rom-com enthusiasts, 'Players' is a must-watch. The story revolves around Mack, a New York sports writer who excels at hookups but struggles with finding love. Mack's world is turned upside down when she meets charismatic war correspondent Nick, forcing her to choose between her usual game plan and following her heart. Directed by Trish Sie and written by Whit Anderson, 'Players' cleverly subverts rom-com tropes and offers a fresh take on the genre.

If you're a fan of rapper Vince Staples, then 'The Vince Staples Show' is a scripted series you don't want to miss. Staples plays a fictionalized version of himself, navigating the absurdities of life in Long Beach, California. The show brings humor, unexpected turns, and lively blunders along with a dynamic set of guest stars. Executive produced by Kenya Barris of 'Black-ish' fame, 'The Vince Staples Show' blends wit and unpredictability, keeping viewers engaged throughout.

Lastly, we have 'The Catcher Was a Spy,' a gripping World War II biopic starring Paul Rudd. Based on a true story, Rudd portrays Moe Berg, a Major League Baseball player who becomes a covert operative during the war. Teaming up with Sienna Miller, Jeff Daniels, and Guy Pearce, Berg works to thwart Germany's atomic ambitions. Directed by Ben Lewis, this film offers a tense and engrossing portrayal of secret agents navigating ethical dilemmas. Rudd's performance as a complex hero, combined with the movie's historical accuracy and compelling plot, is sure to captivate audiences.

Now, let's take a look at the full list of new movies and shows available on Netflix this week, as well as those leaving the platform:
