Never short on fresh content, Netflix regularly release original films either co-produced or fully made by themselves, and 2021 isn’t looking any different. We’re already getting a fairly good idea of what’s on the streamer’s list for next year, which will see the company reportedly commit to a new movie every few weeks, and at least six animated titles. What, then, can we look forward to from Netflix in 2021?
Well, highlights include the animated comedy America: The Motion Picture, which focuses on George Washington, and Richard Linklater’s 1969-set Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Adventure. Elsewhere, Zack Snyder, who also has his cut of Justice League coming to HBO Max, is helming Army of the Dead for streaming, while Andrew Dominik is working on Blonde, a Marilyn Monroe biopic with Ana de Armas. Another big name project, Bruised, comes from Halle Berry, who directs and stars as an MMA fighter.
For younger viewers, we have the likes of Chicken Run 2, an adaptation of the Fear Street books, animation My Father’s Dragon, Nickelodeon’s The Loud House and The Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as well as Trollhouse: Rise of the Titans. In addition, Guillermo del Toro will deliver his take on Pinocchio, created using stop-motion animation.
Other pictures that look like they’ll be worth your time include thriller Born to be Murdered, the Idris Elba-starring festival hit Concrete Cowboy, Diana: A New Musical, and the big budget Don’t Look Up, a new Adam McKay production that boasts talent such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, and many other familiar faces.
