Netflix Is Releasing A New Movie Every Week Of 2021

Let's face it, none of us are doing anything at the moment except escaping reality by watching films day in, day out.

And Netflix obviously read the room pretty accurately, as they've just made good on their promise to release a film a week for the entirety of 2021.

Yep, they've promised 71 whole titles for us to enjoy this year (and that's not even counting the films they haven't acquired yet). Result!

This number means the company has acquired more than Disney and Warner Bros. combined so far.

The Netflix movies will span across all genres - from action adventure to rom-coms to musicals - meaning there will be something for everyone.

Many of the titles will have big names at the helm, too. Some of the stars making appearances include Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Halle Berry, Melissa McCarthy, Jason Momoa, Ryan Reynolds, Chris Hemsworth and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Oh, and Leonardo DiCaprio, Idris Elba, Gal Gadot and Jennifer Lawrence (Netflix, you do spoil us!).

To advertise the exciting move, a few of these famous faces popped up in a show reel to tell us about their projects, and give us a sneak peek of 27 of the hits.

You can watch that trailer below:


Some of the films featuring include Red Notice, starring Gal Gadot, The Rock and Ryan Reynolds (which centres around an Interpol agent hunting down the world's most wanted art thief); Zack Snyder's zombie film Army of the Dead (about a Las Vegas heist in the middle of a Zombie quarantine) and Hamilton favourite Lin-Manuel Miranda's tick tick....BOOM! (chronicling the tale of of an aspiring composer named Jon, from New York in the 1990s).

Celeb packed political satire disaster film, Don't Look Up, is also landing on the platform, starring big names such as Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Timothee Chalamet, Kid Cudi, Ariana Grande and Meryl Streep.
