Need some excitement in your life? Check out this week’s adrenaline-pumping new series and movies currently streaming on Netflix. 

One of the latest additions is the German dystopian sci-fi television series Tribes of Europa. The Hunger Games-like young adult series set in post-apocalyptic Europe comes from the producers of Dark and has already entered Netflix's Top 10 shows across the world a day after its release. 

Another top trending film on the streamer is the 2020 American dark comedy thriller I Care a Lot, which received generally positive reviews from critics and a Golden Globe nod for Rosamund’s Pike's performance as a con woman who takes advantage of the elderly.
