Netflix’s marketing department is excited to let you know that the streaming service will be debuting at least one new movie every week in 2021. This is, perhaps, an attempt to distract from the fact that while Warner Bros., Disney, and NBC Universal, etc. all have their own streaming services, Netflix’s slate of non-original content is getting thinner by the month.

So if it’s not recent blockbusters drawing you in, what will you get for your subscription dollars in February? The month’s biggest get is Malcom & Marie (Feb. 5), a buzzy film starring Zendaya (fresh off her Best Actress Emmy win for HBO’s Euphoria) and John David Washington and written and directed by Euphoria creator Sam Levinson. Netflix paid north of $US30 ($39) million for the film after it sparked a bidding war in the wake of its (virtual) premiere at the 2020 Toronto Film Festival. Netflix is hoping the small-scale story about two actors who return home from their film’s premiere to await the critical notices will attract the attention of notoriously self-absorbed industry awards voters.

Editor’s Note: This list spotlights content coming to Netflix US. There will be some crossover with Australia’s own Netflix library, but for the entire catalogue you’ll need the use of a VPN.

If you aren’t in the mood for solipsistic black and white navel-gazing, there’s To All the Boys: Always and Forever (Feb. 12), the third entry in the epic YA rom-com trilogy that began with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. The next week, Rosamund Pike and Dianne Wiest face off in the slick elder abuse thriller I Care a Lot (Feb. 19), marking the first time anyone has ever made a slick elder abuse thriller.

Here’s everything else coming to (and leaving) Netflix in February 2021.
