Netflix’s February release schedule promises good new releases as well as some beloved titles that deserve revisiting. As Netflix adds to its immense amount of content on the platform, we took the liberty of sorting through the February release schedule for you. We’ve written before about how Netflix plans to release new movies every week this year, but in this article we’ve rounded up five suggestions for you to look forward to this month.
1. To All The Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean
Netflix’s film adaption of the final installment of the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before novel series teases major drama. Lara Jean and Peter, both in their final year of high school, hope to start their college career at Stanford together. When Lara Jean finds out she’s been rejected from Stanford, the two are forced to make some serious decisions about their relationship as graduation looms near. The film is scheduled to be released Feb. 12, and you may want to rewatch To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You to prepare.
2. I Care A Lot
I Care a Lot is a dark comedy thriller about a corrupt legal guardian, Marla Grayson, who profits off of exploiting the assets of those in her care. Marla Grayson, played by Rosamund Pike, assumes she’s found the perfect crime, until her latest victim has connections that put her in a dangerous position. The trailer shows Marla Grayson facing the consequences of her actions at the hand of Roman Lunyov, played by Peter Dinklage. The film’s trailer promises a complex narrative filled with suspense, tension, and plot twists. If you’re looking for a fast-paced, funny crime movie, this is the one for you. The film is set to be released on Feb. 19.
3. The Sinner: Season 3
The Sinner is a slow burn mystery series with absolutely insane plot twists, which season three promises to deliver. The first and second season found widespread critical acclaim for their shocking, dark narratives. This season, featuring Matt Bomer, focuses on the incident of a car crash. Detective Harry Ambrose has a feeling there’s something else going on, and decides to dive deeper into the case, revealing an unsettling depth to it all. The first episode of this season will air on Feb. 6.
4. Malcolm and Marie
Featuring John David Washington and Zendaya, Malcolm and Marie offers an intimate view on the complexities of love and relationships. The trailer reads “This is not a love story, this is the story of love,” hinting that this will explore the darker and more complicated side of love, which offers a stark juxtaposition to the idealized images of romance we will see around Valentine’s Day. This movie also appears to be Zendaya’s run at the Oscars, and if you are a Euphoria fan, you’ll love her in this. The film is set to be released on Feb. 5.
