Hit & Run Season 1 new on Netflix Picture: Netflix

Happy Friday and welcome to your end-of-week daily recap of whats new on Netflix. Weve got 11 new titles to cover which hit Netflix between yesterday and today including the headline Netflix Originals for the week. Heres whats new and whats trending on Netflix for August 6th, 2021.

Also, you may have seen weve begun collating all the new releases currently lined up for September 2021 too.

Looking ahead to the weekend, youve got the martial arts comedy The Paper Tigers dropping tomorrow (August 7th) and the excellent Dustin Hoffman-directed movie Quartet on Sunday.

Lets get into some of the highlights (more weekly highlight recaps via our what to watch section over the weekend).

Genre:Animation, Adventure, ComedyDirector:Kirk DeMicco, Brandon JeffordsCast:Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ynairaly Simo, Zoe SaldanaWriter:Peter Barsocchini, Kirk DeMicco, Quiara Alegra HudesRuntime:103 min

We begin with the third major animation title Netflix has picked up from Sony Animation this year in the form of Vivo.

The musical movie truly showcases the creative talent that Sony Animation has to offer and once again, demonstrates the broad talent of Lin-Manuel Miranda too.

Reviews have generally been favorable toward the movie. On RottenTomatoes, the movie is now certified fresh sitting at 89%. James Berardinelli for ReelViews said the movie is one of the best-animated films to have gone directly to Netflix.

Coming to Netflix today from France is a new boutique movie in the form of The Swarm.

Heres what you can expect from the thriller:

A single mother breeds locusts as high-protein food, but has trouble getting them to reproduce until she finds they have a taste for blood.

Friend of the site, The Netflix Film Project, gave the film a recommendation saying:

The premise of The Swarm sounds very B-movie, but it is a great eco-horror and artistically at least, this years The Platform.

Genre:Action, Crime, DramaCast:Lior Raz, Kaelen Ohm, Sanaa Lathan, Moran Rosenblatt, Lior Ashkenazi, Gregg HenryRuntime:54 mins

A brand new action crime series with Lior Raz (known for Netflixs Fauda series) just dropped on Netflix today.

It tells the story of man who has his life flipped upside down when his wife is mysteriously killed and he goes looking for answers.

Top talent is visible in front of and behind the cameras on this one and all the marketing material is mostly rubbish (in our opinion) we hope this one grows in popularity over time.

Genre:DocumentaryDirector:Laura FairrieCast:Hazel Collins, Joan Collins, Jennifer DaughertyRuntime:96 min

Added to Netflix yesterday and making its SVOD debut on Netflix is the documentary that looks into the life of Jackie Collins looking to answer the question is she a genius or a con artist.
