Here’s what’s coming to Netflix in March 2020

New on Netflix UK March 2020

Another month, another swathe of TV series and films flooding onto Netflix UK. In March, there are some classic movies, some more Studio Ghibli anime films as well as new series of Netflix originals. Read on for a selection of the best new media on the streaming service.


March 1st

Crocodile Dundee

Crocodile Dundee

This classic Australian outback comedy is still totally hilarious. Whilst once it was perhaps seen as a little contrived and cliched, now, Crocodile Dundee is a classic comedy movie with a sharp sense of humour about itself. Watch this if you don’t want anything too deep or too meaningful.


Princess Mononoke

Princess Mononoke

Although Princess Mononoke came out more than twenty years ago, it’s themes of environmental responsibility couldn’t be more pertinent to now. As well as a strong thread of environmental awareness throughout the film, Princess Mononoke is also about acceptance and enlightenment. One of the most famous Studio Ghibli films, Princess Mononoke is required viewing for anyone with a passing interest in Japanese pop culture.


Spirited Away

Spirited Away

Widely considered to be one of the best animated films ever made, Spirited Away is an anime classic which follows Chihiro Ogino as she tries to find a way out of the spirit world and back to the human world after her parents are made into pigs. Not only is the animation beautiful and the plot clever and engaging, but Spirited Away is also a comprehensive introduction to Japanese folklore, bringing some specifically Buddhist culture to the rest of the world.


Made in Dagenham

Made in Dagenham

Before The Shape of Water for Sally Hawkins, there was Made in Dagenham. The film, which has since been made into a stage show, is about the equal pay for women movement in the UK in the sixties and while the subject matter is pretty heavy, the soundtrack will have you tapping your toes as your heart is warmed.

Straight Outta Compton

Straight Outta Compton film

First of all, this film stars Ice Cube’s kid playing Ice Cube himself which is a reason to watch it alone. Second, the film tells the story of NWA’s premise, rise and kind of the group’s fall in a thorough, honest and enthralling. Even if you don’t care about hip hop, you’ll be hooked on the brilliant storytelling in Straight Outta Compton. And if you do love hip hop then you’ve probably already seen it, but watch it again.

A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place

Just in time to refresh your memory before part two comes out at the end of the month, A Quiet Place was ironically all anyone could talk about when it first aired back in 2018. The film is simple in its premise, which was mimicked in Birdbox, and executed beautifully, you’ll be hiding behind the sofa before the end of the movie!

It chapter one

The first part of the most recent adaptation of Stephen King novel IT (the Tim Curry version bears rewatching too). Obviously It is a horror classic, and as such is a nostalgia-fest in and of itself however this particular version is full of eighties references which add another layer of fun to the film, if you know your brat pack movies.

I, Tonya

I Tonya

This was one of the first films that showed the general public how fantastic an actor Margot Robbie is. That’s not to say that she’d not executed some fabulous performances in the past, but I, Tonya showed Robbie’s talent off in a big, flashy way that threw a spotlight onto her as a credible actor. Add to that the queen, Alison Janney, and a true-crime plot and you’ll soon see why I, Tonya gathered so many nominations at the 2017 awards shows.
