The most anticipated new Netflix releases this week

the pale blue eye (2022)

Coming to Netflix: Friday

Also screening in select theaters throughout the week this week is The Pale Blue Eye, Christian Bale’s new Netflix original movie that has received mixed reviews over the festive period.

According to Netflix, here’s what you can expect from the new feature film:

“West Point, 1830. A world-weary detective is hired to discreetly investigate the gruesome murder of a cadet. Hindered by the cadets’ code of silence, he enlists one of them to help unravel the case: a young man the world would come to know as Edgar Allan Poe.»

MADOFF: The Monster of Wall Street (Season 1)

Coming to Netflix: Wednesday

Starting the year off strong when it comes to his upcoming crime docu-series lineup, it’s one that covers one of the biggest con men in history, Bernie Madoff.

Over the course of four episodes, you’ll see the rise and following of the person behind the Ponzi scheme that collapsed in the late 2000s.

It comes from Joe Berlinger, who has produced some of the best Netflix series and documentaries to date.

The Walking Dead (Season 11)

Coming to Netflix: Friday

Headed to Netflix after its final broadcast on AMC in late 2022, you’ll now be able to watch every season of The Walking Dead in the foreseeable future at the end of the week with the broadcast of all 177 episodes.

Consisting of 24 episodes, Season 11 aired over the course of a full year and adapts material from issues #175-193 of the comic series.
