With so many shows and movies to choose from on Australia's major streaming services, it can often be difficult to finding the best new stuff that's been added each week. 

In an effort to make things easier, every Friday we'll be hand-picking the best new shows and movies to watch on Aussie streaming platforms for the weekend, covering the likes of Netflix, Disney Plus, Binge, Stan and Amazon Prime Video.

Below, you'll find a list of this weekend's highlights, separated by streaming service, with binge-worthy new shows sitting alongside some great big-budget new movie arrivals – and a couple of oddball dark horse entries, just for some variety. 

Admittedly, this is fairly light weekend in terms of new content, however, there are a few movie gems to check out. Here are our streaming picks for the weekend of September 11 to September 13, 2020.

Netflix

The Babysitter: Killer Queen (Movie – available now)

A follow up to 2017's Netflix Original horror flick The Babysitter, which starred then-newcomer Samara Weaving (Ready or Not), The Babysitter: Killer Queen picks up a couple years later as Cole (Judah Lewis) starts high school and finds himself once again fighting off the same Satanic cult as before. The only problem is that they were all dead the last time he saw them!

The Dark Knight Rises (Movie – available now)

Though it is undoubtedly the weakest entry in Christopher Nolan's epic Dark Knight trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises is worth watching for the scope of its vision, and the way that it bids farewell to characters we've come to love over the course of three movies. In The Dark Knight Rises, Batman (Christian Bale) faces his most dangerous opponent yet in Bane (Tom Hardy)a guerrilla terrorist who will stop at nothing to bring down Gotham City.

Amazon Prime Video

Little Women (Movie – available now)

From writer/director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) comes the latest critically-acclaimed adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic coming-of-age novel, Little Women. The story follows the March sisters – Jo (Saoirse Ronan), Meg (Emma Watson), Amy (Florence Pugh) and Beth (Eliza Scanlen) – as they set out to live life by their own terms in the years following the US Civil War.

Disney Plus

It's a quiet week on the Disney Plus streaming service, with nothing new to be added for at least next week. That said, there's a huge selection of TV shows and movies on Disney Plus, as you can see from our recommendations below.

Binge

The Underworld Saga (All four movies available from September 13)

Locked in a war that has lasted for centuries, the Vampire clan and the Lycans (also known as werewolves) will stop at nothing until the other side has been defeated. But when a vampire warrior named Selene (Kate Beckinsale) uncovers a conspiracy within her own organisation, it may signal the start of a new era. All four in the Underworld saga will be available to stream on Binge from September 13.

The Nineties (TV series – Season 1 available now)

Here's a series that every child of the 1990s is bound to get a kick out of – The Nineties, from executive producers Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman, and Mark Herzog, chronicles the tumultuous decade that gave the general public such advancements as the internet and DVDs, along with classic TV shows like Seinfeld and Friends.

Stan

Apocalypse Now (Movie – available now)

From Oscar-winning filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather trilogy) comes one of the greatest war films of all time, Apocalypse Now. A loose retelling of Joseph Conrad's classic novel Heart of Darkness, Apocalypse Now relocates the story from late-1800s Africa to the Vietnam War. The film follows Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) as he travels with a small boat crew up the Mekong river into Cambodia on a secret mission to find the rogue Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando) and terminate him "with extreme prejudice."

Stephen Lambrechts

Stephen primarily covers phones and entertainment for TechRadar's Australian team, and has written professionally across the categories of tech, film, television and gaming for over a decade. He's obsessed with smartphones, televisions, and consuming all forms of media at the highest quality possible. He's also likely to talk a person’s ear off at the mere mention of Android, cats, retro sneaker releases or boutique Blu-ray labels.
