"The Circle" — Season 6 available now on Netflix

Behind the scenes: Filming was moved from the U.K. to Atlanta for seasons six and seven.

Maxwell's thought bubble: In a new twist, one of the contestants is an OpenAI chatbot (also named Max), and I was blown away by its ability to strategize the game and carry out conversations that sound authentic and human.

"Rebel Moon Part 2: The Scargiver" — Available Friday on Netflix

What they're saying: Part 2 "is a war movie," following the previous film that set everything up, director Zack Snyder said in a press release.

Fun fact: Snyder planted his own wheat fields for the battle scenes in this film, and the entire cast had to take a course on how to harvest wheat.
