Netflix announces 27 new movies for 2021

Netflix has its full movie slate for 2021 – including films from Dwayne Johnson, Amy Adams, Chris Hemsworth, Zendaya, Leonardo DiCaprio, and a series of A-listers that have more awards than they know what to do with.

Among the highlights – as you can see in the above video – is Red Notice, an action movie that sees Dwayne Johnson playing an FBI agent who finds unlikely bedfellows in a pair of criminals (Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot).

Vice director Adam McKay, meanwhile, is helming Don’t Look Up, which features Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence play a pair of astronomers who are warning the world of an impending comet strike. Timothee Chalamet, Cate Blanchett, and Meryl Streep also appear.

Then, there are films starring Chris Hemsworth (Escape from Spiderhead), Zendaya (Malcom and Marie – which released its first teaser recently), and Jason Momoa (Sweet Girl). Lin-Manuel Miranda is set to make his directing debut with Tick, Tick, Boom; Halle Berry is also stepping into the director's chair with Bruised. There are even follow-up threequels to popular Netflix film series The Kissing Booth and To All The Boys. Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead will also stream on Netflix this summer.
