Here's a look at everything coming to the streaming service this week.

Comments

A new week means a new batch of content served up on Netflix. With winter starting to recede into the rear-view mirror, that also means the slow but steady dawn of marquee, exciting and also classic titles onto popular streaming services. This week sees a long list of new additions, from Batman and Friday the 13th movies to a Notorious BIG documentary

The first of the month is typically when most additions to streaming services take place, and March is no exception with a whopping 21 newcomers on Netflix. If you're a fan of hip-hop, you're in luck, because the first of the month sees the debut of the new documentary Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell. The film is about the life and career of one of the most influential rappers of all time, the Notorious B.I.G. The documentary "celebrates [Biggie's] life via rare behind-the-scenes footage and the testimonies of his closest friends and family."

The first of the month also brings two-thirds of the Christopher Nolan-directed rebooted Batman trilogy: 2005's Batman Begins and 2008's The Dark Knight. Long before the phrase "Marvel Cinematic Universe" was a thing, these movies represented an important foothold for comic-book movies. These were the films that helped popularize, for better or worse, the phrase "gritty reboot," but beyond all that--these are both very good films, whether you're a Batman comics fan or not. Christian Bale does an impressive double-duty as tortured billionaire Bruce Wayne and the reclusive superhero, and it is legitimately plausible to enjoy these films as legitimate films.

On March 5, Pokémon Journeys continues with Part 4. The series takes Ash and Pikachu as "they embark on adventures across multiple regions in the Pokémon world, meeting new characters and discovering more Pokémon along the way."
