With cinemas worldwide more or less stuffed until the coronavirus vaccine rolls out, Netflix might imagine itself in a relatively solid position compared to competing movie studios. Now, thanks to a jumbo teaser reel, we have a better understanding of the 72 new movies Netflix plans to roll out in 2021. Maybe some confidence is justified.
The clip rockets through scenes from major upcoming productions, including Zendaya‘s turn in Malcolm & Marie, Chris Hemsworth‘s jailbreak thriller Escape From Spiderhead, and Back To The Outback, an animated flick which includes every Aussie star not named Chris Hemsworth.
Then there’s the brief glimpse of Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence in Don’t Look Up, which follows two astronomers on a doomsday tour of the Earth. While we don’t quite get a glimpse of them in the teaser roll, the flick also stars Timothée Chalamet, Meryl Streep, and Cate Blanchett. Make your own joke about stargazing.
Oh, the clip also shows off a scene from the upcoming To All The Boys: Always And Forever, including Mr Noah Centineo getting down on one knee before Lana Condor. I wouldn’t say I’m an expert on the rom-com genre, but I can’t shake the feeling that’d be some kind of emotion-toying fake-out. Still, I will leave it up to you for interpretation:
If you’re simply incapable of waiting for all of those movies to pop up on the small screen of your choice, take a minute to peruse the list of every new feature film and TV production arriving on Netflix this month.
Batman Forever is already up for streaming, as is Nicholas Cage‘s The History Of Swear Words, so that should keep you entertained until some of the flicks mentioned arrive.
