Netflix unveils 42 original movies for the rest of 2021, Indian titles to come

Netflix unveiled a slate of 42 Hollywood and international movies – fiction and nonfiction – for the rest of 2021, with names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, Ryan Reynolds, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Olivia Colman , Jonathan Majors, Regina King, Zazie Beetz, LaKeith Stanfield, Dakota Johnson, Tessa Thompson, Andrew Garfield, Michael Keaton, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Viola Davis, Julie Bowen, and Sandra Bullock. That’s more than every Hollywood studio has put together. But with Netflix, the big question is always: will most of them be good? Or will they be forgettable?

Highlights include Adam McKay’s sci-fi comedy Don’t Look Up, which cost Netflix $55 million (about Rs. 409 crores) just to put DiCaprio and Lawrence in the same film. Oscar winner Jane Campion brings together Cumberbatch, Dunst and Plemons for The Power of the Dog. The Oscar-winning film The Hand of God Paolo Sorrentino is a semi-autobiographical film set in Naples and has nothing to do with Diego Maradona. Maggie Gyllenhaal’s adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s novel The Lost Daughter features Colman, Dakota and Jessie Buckley – all four films will be released in a sold-out December for Netflix.

Elsewhere, the Army of Thieves – the prequel to Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead robbery – will arrive on Netflix in late October. He will be followed by actors from The Rock, Wonder Woman and Deadpool in the action movie Red Notice in November. AND Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his feature film debut with tick, tick … BOOM! in November too, with Garfield in the lead role.

Remember, Netflix’s original movie list for the rest of 2021 doesn’t mention a single title from India. This will inevitably change as Netflix has some original Indian movies it hasn’t released of the 13 it unveiled in March – Bulbul Tarang led by Sonakshi Sinha, Jaadugar led by Jitendra Kumar, Penthous by Abbas – Mustan with Bobby Deol and Arjun Rampal, Dhamaka led by Kartik Aaryan, Meenakshi Sundereshwar with Sanya Malhotra and Abhimanyu Dassani. Expect Netflix India to add more to that list during the rest of 2021. For now, here’s the new list of original movies that Netflix has unveiled:
