No Theaters? No Problem for Netflix, Which Will Release at Least One New Movie a Week in 2021

Do you have plans this weekend? What about every weekend of 2021? Netflix, the leviathan streamer that’s only benefited from our inability to get out of the house in the last year or so, has something to say about that. 71 things to say, as a matter of fact. Today, Netflix announced its entire 2021 slate of films, which will drop at least one new movie a week and total up to 71 movies. For some perspective, if you flip those digits, you’ll get how many movies Warner Bros. plans on releasing in 2021 (17).

It’s a ton of movies or, if you want to use more Netflix-esque parlance, a ton of content. Its audience remains captive, its strategy continues to open the floodgate and the law of large numbers continues to say that, hey, some of these are going to end up being pretty good. For every Hillbilly Elegy, one must imagine a The Irishman.

The trailer for its slate features plenty of homebound celebrities looking various degrees of worn-out as they play along with the oncoming avalanche of movies:

But man, 71 movies. That’s a full 15% of its current Originals total of 469. I don’t exactly know what that math means, but it’s certainly a whole lot of movies—and a whole lot of incentive for moviegoers to take the “go” out of their title, at least until the COVID-19 vaccine has rolled out.
