One movie per week. That’s what it promises Netflix in 2021. An arsenal of premieres that has been announced in a video in which the first images of 27 of these titles have been seen. And that’s just counting the international bets, since to that we must add everything they prepare in Spanish fiction.
The platform throws the house out the window, and before advertisements like those ofWarner or DisneyThey have also made it clear that the cinema interests them. Among the most important titles is Don’t look Up, the new of Adam McKay –The vice of power– with a cast of heart attack that includes Cate Blanchett, Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence y Timothée Chalamet.
What can be seen in this advance is that if there is a genre they are betting on, it is the action of large budgets. They follow in the wake of other Netflix hits like The old guard. Therefore you can see the frenetic action thrillers Red Notice, made by Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot y Ryan Reynolds, and Army of the dead, directed by Zack Snyder; which will also present its director’s cut of Justice League on HBO Max.
Debuts like that of Lin Manuel Miranda, the star of the musical Hamilton who will direct the musical tick, tick… BOOM! or the first movie of Halle berry as director, Bruised, are some of the surprises of an ad in which they have underlined the importance of films directed by and starring women, such as the thriller starring Amy Adams, The woman at the window; Moxie, directed and produced by Amy Poehler; Beautystarring Niecy Nash and Aleyse Shannon; The last letter from your lover, directed by Augustine Frizzel and starring Felicity Jones, based on the novel by JoJo Moyes; the comedy Thunder Force, in which Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer become superheroes; or the haunting Rescue distance, written and directed by Claudia Llosa and starring María Valverde and Dolores Fonzi.
The auteur cinema will also be represented on Netflix. Some last cartridges will be released to be at the Oscars, such as Malcolm & Marie, directed by Sam Levinson and starring Zendaya and John David Washington, which will arrive in early February. Then we will see the western The Harder They Fall, starring Idris Elba; the drama White Tiger, starring Priyanka Chopra; or the legal drama Monster. Later two of the most anticipated: the biopic of Marilyn Monroe, Blonde, embodied by Ana de Armas and produced by Brad Pitt; or The Hand of God, written and directed by acclaimed Italian director Paolo Sorrentino.
Spanish films include romantic comedies such as We were songs, directed by Juana Macías and starring María Valverde and Álex González, and Crazy for her, directed by Dani of the Order and starring Álvaro Cervantes and Susana Abaitua. Another genre for which they seem to have a predilection is the thriller, which will be represented with Bajocero, directed by Lluís Quílez and the adrenaline rush XTREMO, an action film starring Teo García, Óscar Jaenada, Óscar Casas, Andrea Duro and Sergio Peris-Mencheta.
There will also be action movies, with titles such as Kate, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead; The Last Mercenary, starring Jan-Claude Van Damme; Sweet Girl, with Jason Momoa; u O2, directed by Alexandre Aja and starring Mélanie Laurent. It will also be seen Escape From Spiderhead, starring Chris Hemsworth.
