After “Woman in the Window” by Joe Wright and “Wish Dragon” by Chris Appelhans, Netflix wants to continue its momentum and recover many films originally planned for theaters.
While the streaming giant presented, on January 12, an exclusive video bringing together all the new features to come in 2021, other films could be added to the list. The closure of American cinemas, which has been going on for many months, forces studios to accept offers from the platform. One of the latest examples is The Woman at the Window by Joe Wright. Produced by Twentieth Century Fox, this thriller worn by Amy Adams and Gary Oldman will be available in the summer of 2021. Scott Stuber, lhe general manager of Netflix original productions, explains that they do not have the attention to reduce the pace.
“I think other opportunities and conversations are emerging from the films we have already acquired, and not just in the festival circuit.“, he confides in the columns of Variety. If events like the Sundance Film Festival are a boon for Netflix, especially on the documentary side, the big studios remain their main target. “This year again, we bought the first Hally Berry film, Bruised, which I can’t wait to discover. “
Last year, the platform had already been able to offer works prestigious, originally planned for the movie theater, such as The Chicago Seven by Aaron Sorkin. The film based on real events is also on track to compete at the next Oscars ceremony. Yet come houses are still resisting Netflix’s call. This is the case of WarnerMedia which refused the offer of 200 million dollars to bequeath their bequeath Godzilla vs. Kong by Adam Wingard. Still scheduled for May 19, 2021 in France, the blockbuster could however be released directly on the HBO Max platform at States–United.
