Need something to watch tonight?

The weather forecast this weekend looks pretty decent.

But if you're planning on taking it easy and staying out of the sun, Netflix have got lots of new titles streaming from today to keep you entertained.

Here's what going to be added to the collection:

Chasing Coral (Friday, July 14) 

Winner of the US documentary audience award at this years' Sundance festival, Jeff Orlowski's Chasing Coral is a visually arresting film about the struggle to stop coral reefs from going extinct.

With its breathtaking photography, the film follows a coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they try to create the first time-lapse camera to track the reef's coral bleaching as its occurs.

Coral reefs are dying on a considerable scale, but the dramatics of Chasing Coral will ensure viewers are kept enthralled until the last second.

Friends From College (Friday, July 14)

Netflix Original comedy series Friends From College is produced and directed by the guy who brought us Get Him to the Greek, Bad Neighbours, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, so you know it's going to be good.

The eight episode series follows a group of friends from Harvard who are now in their forties but still dealing with the complications that come with relationships, friendship, and all those other things you don't get to leave behind once you graduate.

There are a few familiar faces in the cast too with How I Met Your Mother's Cobie Smulders playing Lisa, and Parks and Recreation's Keegan-Michael Key as Ethan.

Give it a go if you're into romantic entanglements and a bit of nostalgia.

To The Bone (Friday, July 14)

To The Bone has been draped in controversy since its trailer was first released a few months ago.

The film focuses on Ellen, played by Lily Collins, and her struggle with anorexia as she is sent from doctor to doctor in the hope of recovery. Eventually sent to a group home run by an unconventional health professional, Ellen is forced to face her demons and confront her illness.

Many have been critical of the film on Twitter for glamorising mental illness and even romanticising eating disorders, so it's safe to say that this movie won't be for everyone. But if you're at all curious, To The Bone will be available to stream from Friday.
