Every Sunday comes the FILMSTARTS preview of the upcoming Netflix week. In the next few days, for example, the tenth season of “The Blacklist”, one of the best “Mission: Impossible” parts and a brand new agent thriller with Gal Gadot.
Nearly every day there are new releases from the film and series sector at Netflix. So that you do not lose the overview in the streaming jungle, you get on FILMSTARTS every Sunday a preview of the coming days at the big N. This week is all about the action thriller “Heart Of Stone” with superstar Gal Gadot . The first trailer promises action in “Mission: Impossible” style. Meanwhile, series fans can look forward to the release of the final season of “The Blacklist.
What else will be launched by the streaming giant in the period from July 7 to 13, 2023, you can find out here. Of course, as always neatly sorted by weekdays
MONDAY: PLENTY OF ACTION AND STAR POWER
The week starts with plenty of action and big stars. “The Protége – Made For Revenge” has only been released as a home theater release in this country, but genre fans should still enjoy Bond director Martin Campbell’s (“Casino Royale”) mix reminiscent of “John Wick” and co. – especially since it features an excellent cast with Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton and Maggie Q.
TUESDAY: THE ZOMBIES BECOME REALITY
In the South Korean Netflix format “Zombieverse,” participants* in a reality TV series must prove themselves in a zombie apocalypse. Daily tasks such as food procurement etc. must be mastered – and there are also small mini-games. Whoever gets bitten is out. The first trailer for the reality TV series looks like a lot of fun. We’re already hoping for a trash celebrity adaptation for the German market…
If you don’t enjoy reality TV format, you might be able to do something with the second part of “The Seven Deadly Sins” movie spin-off “Grudge Of Edinburgh”, which also launches today on Netflix. Anime fans might get their money’s worth here.
WEDNESDAY: QUIET MIDWEEK
Today, no notable new launches at the streaming giant. Time to go through last week’s new releases once again. Have you already had a look at the series version of the feature film “War Sailor”?
THURSDAY: AMERICA’S OPIOID CRISIS
The mini-series “Painkiller” focuses on the beginnings of the opioid crisis in the United States in the late 1990s. The focus here is on Richard Sackler (“Ferris Makes Blue” icon Matthew Broderick), CEO of Purdue Pharma, the company that brought the painkiller OxyContin to market. The drug leads very quickly to addiction and in the case of an overdose even to death. But the pharmaceutical company denies any blame and tries to cover up the incidents…
FRIDAY: GAL GADOT GETS TO DELIVER ACTION AGAIN
“Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot gets to dish it out again in “Heart Of Stone”. This time, however, not as a DC superhero, but as a powerful agent in the style of Ethan Hunt. Similar to her male colleague, who is still cleaning up the cinemas in “Mission: Impossible 7”, Gal Gadot as super agent Rachel Stone throws herself off cliffs and shows her enemies what a rake is. She is supported by Matthias Schweighöfer, who assists her as IT brain and technical assistant.
If you don’t need adrenaline, but something for the heart, you can tune in to “Down For Love”. Here, people with Down syndrome are looking for their heart mate. The concept of the show seems to be based on the Netflix hit “Love on the Spectrum”.
SATURDAY: THE FINAL SEASON OF “THE BLACKLIST “
One last time you can be there as the criminal mastermind Raymond Reddington (James Spader) fights back against his persecutors: barely a month after the U.S. broadcast, the tenth and final season of the series hit “The Blacklist” is now also available on Netflix. Hardcore fans may have already watched the episodes anyway, but everyone else can now catch up on the final episodes. After all these years, will the secret of Raymond Reddington’s true identity finally be revealed?
SUNDAY: ONE OF THE BEST “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE” PARTS
The latest installment of the agent series, “Mission: Impossible 7 – Dead Reckoning Part One,” is still playing in movie theaters, and our editor-in-chief Christoph Petersen even gave it top marks in his review. However, the predecessor “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”, which was released in 2018, also plays on a similarly high level. Our 4.5-star review by editor Carsten Baumgardt states:
“Fasten your seatbelts, turn on your brain and let yourself be pressed into the seats – you won’t see a more grandiose spectacle on the big screen this summer than in Christopher McQuarrie’s furiously high-speed action thriller ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’.”
Starting today, you can stream the action blockbuster starring a Tom Cruise in top form on Netflix.
