We're rolling through February and straight into March. It's always surprising how quickly the days pass us by, but that's the nature of time, after all. This week, there's plenty to wade through with fun additions new on Netflix, including the hotly-anticipated Adam Sandler flick "Spaceman."

"Spaceman" follows Sandler as an astronaut who's sent to the edge of the solar system to collect mysterious dust. With his life on Earth falling to pieces, he finds solace and solutions in a creature aboard his ship. Co-starring Carey Mulligan, Paul Dano, Kunal Nayyar, and Isabella Rossellini, it looks like another chance for Sandler to flex his serious acting skills.

There's also "Code 8 Part II," a sequel to 2019's "Code 8", starring Robbie Amell and Stephen Amell. It centers on the last of the citizens left in Lincoln City who have special powers. After a teenager sees her brother killed by corrupt police, she asks Connor Reed (Amell) and Garrett Kelton (Stephen Amell) for help unraveling the cover-up.

But that's not all, not by a long shot. You've got plenty more options to take on through the end of February and the beginning of March. To see the rest of what's coming to the streaming platform, be sure to check out our complete day-by-day rundown of what's new on Netflix this week below.

'American Conspiracy: The Octopus Murders'

The mysterious death of journalist Danny Casolaro sends shockwaves across the nation.

This entity, Casolaro believed, tied together stolen government secrets, a string of murders, and a slew of political scandals. This documentary peels back some of the layers of this multifaceted mystery to get to the center of who or what wanted Casolaro silenced — or if it's all a hoax.
