It is safe to say that the world got some of the best original Netflix movies in 2020. With black-and-white period dramas like David Fincher’s Mank, the critically acclaimed Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and its multiple Oscar-worthy performances from Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman, and the thought-provoking and unique documentary The Social Dilemma, Netflix movies were all anyone could talk about in a year that was filled with some of the most insane and attention-grabbing news of our generation. But with 2020 firmly in our rearview mirror, the time has come to take a look at the 2021 movie premiere dates for all the original films that will be coming to Netflix in the next 12 months.

And boy, Netflix didn’t waste any time at all preparing for yet another year of highly anticipated dramas, comedies, big-budget action thrillers, and dozens upon dozens of international releases from countries like South Korea, France, and everywhere around the world. But before we get started with this breakdown of all the original Netflix movies coming out this year, please note that each of these titles will be available at 3:01 a.m. ET (12:01 a.m. PT) on the day of their respective releases.

Netflix Movies Coming In 2021 - No Date Set

And those are just the Netflix movies with specific release dates. Throughout 2021, Netflix will become the home to films like Zack Snyder’s long-awaited zombie movie Army of the Dead, the Dave Bautista-led action thriller following a group of mercenaries plotting a heist in the middle of Las Vegas as the dead return to walk the earth.

Another movie from an iconic director that will make its debut on Netflix later this year will be Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of the classic Italian fairytale Pinocchio. A project that has been in the works for years now, del Toro’s take on the timeless fable will include a killer cast made up of Gregory Mann, Ewan McGregor, David Bradley, Ron Perlman, Tilda Swinton, Christoph Waltz, Tim Blake Nelson, Cate Blanchett, and many others.

Without a doubt, this list of original Netflix movies will for sure go through plenty of changes over the course of the next 12 months. With release dates getting fleshed out, movies getting shifted around, and new additions being made as we push through 2021, it wouldn’t be the worst idea to bookmark this list and other similar lists so you don’t miss out if Netflix decides to randomly drop a movie in the middle of the night on some random Tuesday in September. Speaking of which, go ahead and check out CinemaBlend’s 2021 Netflix TV Series Premiere Schedule, which like this guide, will be updated whenever a new title is announced.
