Netflix Is Releasing A New Original Film Every Week In 2021

Ivy Richardson Ivy Richardson


Netflix has saved the day once again.

I think we can all agree that Netflix has single-handedly carried us through lockdown part one, two and three. As frustrating as it gets to keep reminding Netflix that we are indeed “still watching”, their vast collection of series and films definitely makes up for it. And it’s about to get a whole lot bigger. They’ve just announced that they will be releasing a brand new movie every single week in 2021!

The popular streaming platform will add 71 new titles to their library over the year, plus any extras they acquire down the line. They will soon have more films than both Disney And Warner Bros. combined! The new additions coming to Netflix in 2021 will cover pretty much ever genre ranging from comedy and romance to musicals and Westerns. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait too long for the first film to grace our screens. Outside the Wire, a sci-fi action thriller starring Anthony Mackie, will be available to stream on the platform this Friday (January 15).

Here’s a trailer offering a sneak peak of what’s to come:
