What’s New on Netflix Canada – March 2018

Marvel's Jessica JonesNothing brings people together like a shared interest in movie magic. Be it the sleeper hit flick or the we-love-that-movie flick, or even the I-watched-that-in-a-day series, there’s always some Netflix gem that bonds people. Unless you’re one that sneakily stays up late and binges a series ahead of your partner (high-five mate!).

March looks very promising as Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season 2 arrives in full force, and having seen a sneak peek of the first few episodes, I’d definitely say it’s a binge-in-a-day season. March also brings refreshing new seasons of Santa Clarita Diet and A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Originals
Marvel’s Jessica Jones
 Season 2 (Mar. 8) takes a look back at Jessica’s past as to how she acquired her super powers. Jessica takes the help of her friend Trish to dig into the experiments all the while drinking her income away and  entertaining us with her dry wit and dark humor. Another series serving a second helping of humor is Santa Clarita Diet (Mar. 23) starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. If that doesn’t satisfy your appetite, how about a second season of A Series of Unfortunate Events (Mar. 30)?

Requiem (Mar. 23) Season 1 follows a young girl who searches for answers about her past after her mother commits suicide. She uncovers a sinister secret and that’s enough to get us hooked. If the dead don’t interest you, how about some human emotion? There’s cuteness overload with Benji (Mar. 16), which follows an adorable mutt who is adopted by a kind family and then helps rescue the kids when they’re abducted.

Inspiration 101
For that confidence booster you need to follow your dreams, watch Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender) as he takes us behind-the-scenes of the digital revolution. Lacking in the faith department? Miracles from Heaven (Mar. 27) tells the true story of 12-year-old Annabel Beam, who suffers from a rare incurable digestive disorder, while her mother Christy (Jennifer Garner) searches for a solution.

Comedies
On a rather unholy side, Sleeping with Other People follows a serial cheater and a womanizer who enter a platonic relationship. You can guess what happens next.

Amy PoehlerSisters and Tina Fey are the dynamic duo that bring down the house with a booze-fueled party in Sisters (Mar. 1). If these two weren’t enough, there’s eye candy Ryan Reynolds who teams up with Samuel L. Jackson in The Hitman’s Bodyguard (Mar. 16).

Popcorn Flicks
You know it’s wedding season when you see a list of these movies. The Back-Up Plan (Mar. 31) follows Jennifer Lopez, a woman tired of looking for Mr. Right and decides to have a baby on her own. But after she’s artificially inseminated, she meets her perfect match. Of course.

What to Expect When You’re Expecting (Mar. 3) follows the lives of five interconnected couples as they experience the thrills and surprises of having a baby.

If babies aren’t your cup of drool, watch Nicole Kidman reinvent herself in Bewitched (Mar.31), based on the beloved 1960s sitcom.

Thrills and Horror Galore
The buzzworthy limited series Alias Grace (Mar. 25) is finally on Netflix and will satisfy your appetite for some crime drama. A horror film I’m happy to watch again is The Forest (Mar. 1), which follows Sara, who travels to Japan to search for her twin sister Jess, who has mysteriously disappeared in the Aokigahara Forest — a place where people go to end their lives. If you can’t stomach this haunted forest thriller, you could help yourself to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Mar. 29).

Eye Candy & Abs Fast & Furious
It’s all about the fast cars and the thrill of the chase (and the abs) in the Fast and the Furious series, which is all going to be available on Netflix. Get ready for an emotional ride as Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson hit the accelerator in The Fast and the Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious and Fast Five starting March 1. Of course, Paul Walker will leave everyone teary eyed.

Underworld Action
For some more action, take a bite of the Vampire and Lycan action as Kate Beckinsale becomes Serena in Underworld, Underworld: Awakening, Underworld: Evolution and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans streaming March 31.
