Netflix Roll Out Preview of “70 star-studded feature films to be Released in 2021”

The sneak peek is unusual for Netflix, which historically has dropped news of only one film at a time

-

The sneak peek is unusual for the streaming giant, Netflix Already the master of 2020’s pandemic-era movie landscape, a list with no fewer than 70 star-studded feature films.

From drama, comedy and science fiction to horror and even Westerns, the slate will take in every major film genre before the year is out, with some releases poised as potential competition for major awards.

Among the most-anticipated titles is Don’t Look Up, from filmmaker Adam McKay of The Big Short and Vice fame  starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Harder They Fall, a Western co-produced by Jay-Z and with a primarily Black cast including Regina King and Idris Elba, also promises to be one to look out for.

But the list included premier dates for only 10 of the titles — from early January to mid-March. The announcement was accompanied by a short video presented by Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot, Jumanji lead Dwayne Johnson and Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds.

‘The video also features Regina King, Adrien Brody, Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock, Octavia Spencer, Jeremy Irons — even Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence — showcasing the several Oscar winners Netflix has snagged for their 2021 season.

The directors featured on the slate include notable names such as Jane Campion for The Power of the Dog, Halle Berry and Lin-Manuel Miranda in both of their first spins behind the camera.

Johnson, Gadot and Reynolds will appear in Red Notice, an action film with a $160 million budget, according to US media.

Netflix did not respond to an AFP query about  any of its 2021 films that would also receive theatrical releases. The preview came as Warner Bros. dropped its own slate, revealing that it would release all 17 of its 2021 titles simultaneously in theaters and on HBO MAX.
