The streaming giant is confident a recent price increase will be justified by a continuous stream of new movies across the year ahead. Subscribers can look forward to the likes of action-comedy Red Notice, starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, political satire Don’t Look Up, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence and Ariana Grande, and drama Concrete Cowboy, starring Idris Elba.
Announcing the bumper slate, Netflix said: “We’re kicking 2021 off with a bang. This year’s line-up will surprise and delight cinephiles across the globe with films from Award winning filmmakers, including Jane Campion (The Power of the Dog), Paolo Sorrentino (The Hand of God) and Adam McKay (Don’t Look Up).
“We’re bringing you a year of films filled with more of the things we know our members love – zombies (Army of the Dead), cowboys (The Harder They Fall, Concrete Cowboy), and high school romance (including the culmination of the To All the Boys and The Kissing Booth trilogies).
“We’re re-introducing you to teen screams (Fear Street trilogy, There’s Someone Inside Your House), turning your favorite books into films (The Woman in the Window, Munich, The Last Letter from Your Lover), bringing you more adrenaline-pumping blockbusters (Red Notice, Sweet Girl, Kate) and giving your family a reason to say YES to watching films together (YES DAY, Back to the Outback, Finding ‘Ohana).”
