New On Netflix This Week (April 12-18): Anime, Movie, TV Shows, And Originals

Here is everything coming to the streaming service this week.


It's always good to keep up to date with what is coming to Netflix each week. If you don't, you can miss out on things like The Tiger King or The Main Event. This week, there are a couple stand-up comedy specials headed your way and two movies you want to check out. Here's everything headed to Netflix this week.

On Thursday, the Coen Brothers movie Hail, Caesar arrives. A love-letter to 1950s Hollywood, the film follows Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), a "fixer" for movie studios whose job it is to keep stars in line. One day, star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) disappears, and Mannix has a new problem that is challenging to fix.
