Netflix has a massive film slate that will see new movies released every week this year on the hugely popular streaming service to continue its growing success during the pandemic.
The content platform’s Twitter made the official announcement just a week ago.
If you’re a Netflix fan, this is the best news you could have asked for
First teased back in October in commercial spotlights, the premier streaming service is making good on its promise with the release of Outside the Wire, a fantasy adventure film that was released on January 15th this year.
There’s a lot more of that to come as Netflix has around 70 films that they intend to release over the course of 2021. Mostly comprised of original productions and a few high-profile acquisitions, the upcoming film slate is filled with a variety of genres from comedy to musicals, action to animation. There will be at least something that will catch the eye of all 193 million subscribers.
You can take a look at the entire list sorted by genre here.
Keep an eye out for the big titles this year
That goes for the highly-budgeted heist film Red Notice starring Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds, Don’t Look Up featuring an ensemble cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Timothée Chalamet, Meryl Streep, Kid Cudi and Ariana Grande, as well as several other films of note.
This year will also see the return and finale of the extremely successful series, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Kissing Booth.
It’s a great time to be the biggest streaming platform in the world
While big studios like Warner Bros. are going through something of a crisis with the decision to pivot to streaming, Netflix is in a prime position to continue releasing new and premium films.
Take Wish Dragon from Sony Pictures Animation, for example. An original premise created by the Oscar-winning team behind Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, Netflix succeeded in landing the title to be released on its platform later this year. This frees up Sony of the burden of any financial loss and gives Netflix even more pull with premium content for quarantined families.
The ongoing pandemic has certainly changed how the film industry works but one thing is for sure: Netflix is sticking around and business is booming.
