Christmas is two nights away and we hope you have traveled home safely or had safe travels if you haven’t ventured home yet for the holidays. If you’re ready to turn on Netflix, here’s what’s new and trending for December 23, 2022.
There’s a lot to look forward to this weekend as Netflix has some crackers in store for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and we’ll be here to recap it all.
The best new movies and series on Netflix for December 23
Glass Onion: Knives Out Mystery (2022)
Genre: Comedy, Crime, Drama
Director: Ryan Johnson
Actors: Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Kate Hudson
Writer: Ryan Johnson
Execution: 139 min / 2h 19m
After receiving a limited release over Thanksgiving weekend, you can watch Knives Out 2 in the comfort of your living room.
The film, which Netflix spent a fortune on, sees Benoit hired on a private Greek island to investigate an impending murder.
You can re-read our review, which we’ve updated to reflect the addition of Netflix, where we gave Janelle Monae the MVP award and concluded:
“A fitting sequel with the great tone of the original and the increased production of his new Netflix deal. Rian Johnson could easily do that every few years if he chose to (and I hope so).
The Fabulous (Season 1)
Language: in korea
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Actors: Choi Min-ho, Chae Soo-bin
Execution: 67 min / 1h 7m
Although a little late to Netflix, The Fabulous it’s streaming now.
Here’s what you can expect from the new rom-com series:
“Four best friends chase their dreams in the competitive world of fashion while juggling demanding jobs, romantic dilemmas and wild nights on the town.”
Also, in case you missed it, we’ve rounded up our favorite K-dramas of the year right here.
Alice in Borderlands (Season 2)
Genre: Action, Drama, Mystery
Actors: Kento Yamazaki, Tao Tsuchiya, Nijiro Murakami
Execution: 50 min
If you’ve never seen Alice in Borderland, it’s one of the best international series Netflix has on its service. Season 2 ups the ante with even more sadistic games for our protagonists to survive.
