Best new movies on Netflix – Dec. 2017

So you wanna know what’s highly rated and new on Netflix this month? We did the hard work for you so check out our pick of magnificent new movies on Netflix USA. Each month we bring you a super easy overview of the best new movies on Netflix. Each movie highly rated, well reviewed and available for streaming on Netflix USA. 

December is a good month if you're a Netflix user given the fact that our favorite streaming service again launches a lot of new original content. Although we think not every single Netflix release has always been spot-on we definitely applaud the effort and we are quite curious for Bright, a big-budget buddy cop movie starring Will Smith. Since it won't air until December 22, we have to keep you guessing if it will show up on this - new+noteworthy - list by then! The line-up of great movies coming to you in December also includes Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket (a must see movie because it’s one of the most influential of all Vietnam war movies) and the action-packed Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (not before December 5!)

Netflix keeps adding movies throughout the month so this list will be updated whenever we find something new on Netflix you might like!
