Every New Netflix Movie Through the End of 2021

Netflix announced its fall movie slate, and subscribers are going to be busy catching up with them all. The streamer is releasing a whopping 43 films in the last four months of 2021. There is a mix of films with lesser-known stars and others stacked with A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Regina King, Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence, and many, many more.

Some of the films hitting Netflix could be awards contenders. Jane Campion, best known for her Oscar-winning classic The Piano, returns with her first feature film since 2009 with The Power of the Dog, starring Cumberbatch as a rancher whose life changes when his brother comes home with a new wife and son. Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Thomasin McKenzie star in the drama, which will be released on Netflix on Dec. 1 after a limited theatrical run in November.

Another movie that is sure to get awards attention is Don’t Look Up, a new satire from Adam McKay, the director of Anchorman and The Big Short. The black comedy stars DiCaprio and Lawrence as astronomers who go on a media tour to warn everyone about an asteroid set to destroy the earth. The star-studded cast also includes Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Ron Perlman, Timothee Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Cate Blanchett, and Meryl Streep.
