New Movies and Series on Netflix: September 16th, 2022

This is the End – Picture: Sony Pictures Releasing

Welcome to your roundup of what’s new on Netflix for September 16th, where 14 new movies and 6 new series have just arrived for the weekend. Here’s your full rundown of what’s new and trending in the Netflix top 10s.

Over the weekend, we’ll see the removal of Horrid Henry’s Gross Day Out (2020) and Skylines (2020). Also, given the news this week, we’d recommend watching both Blade Runner: The Final Cut (1982) and Blade Runner 2049 (2017). They both depart on September 26th.

Not much planned for Netflix over the weekend, but we are set to see The Mortal Instrument: City of Bones touch down on Sunday.


Best New Movies and Series on Netflix for September 16th, 2022

Do Revenge (2022)

Genre: Comedy
Director: Jennifer Kaytin Robinson
Cast: Sophie Turner, Maya Hawke, Cassady McClincy
Writer: Celeste Ballard, Jennifer Kaytin Robinson
Runtime: 118 mins

Described as a subverted Hitchcock-ian dark comedy, the movie is set after a run-in at school where subsequently, Drea and Eleanor team up to go after each other’s tormentors.

We reviewed the movie earlier today and gave it a PLAY recommendation, citing its familiar yet refreshed themes and epic soundtrack.


Father Stu (2022)

Genre: Biography, Drama
Director: Rosalind Ross
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, Jacki Weaver
Writer: Rosalind Ross
Runtime: 124 min

The Sony first-window deal is now firing on all cylinders with Uncharted and Morbius kicking off the huge slate of movies set to come to Netflix over the coming months and years. Next up from that slate is Father Stu, a movie that divided critics and audiences when it launched in theaters in April this year.

Based on a true story, we see Wahlberg play a man who finds healing in Catholicism and decides to become a priest after a failed boxing career and a near-fatal motorcycle wreck.


This Is the End (2013)

Genre: Comedy, Fantasy
Director: Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen
Cast: James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen
Writer: Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Jason Stone
Runtime: 107 min

Also from Sony (but much older) is This is the End, the ultimate stoner movie with all the loveable idiots that dominated comedies in the late 2000s and early 2010s.

Scoring favorable review scores from critics and audiences alike, here’s what you can expect from the movie that’ll soon be celebrating its 10th anniversary:

“A group of Hollywood celebrities stuck together at a party grapple with cataclysmic danger — and each other — as the apocalypse dawns.”
