Warner Bros. sent shockwaves through the movie business with the news they would be releasing their entire 2021 on HBO Max. The controversial move was met with anger from many inside the industry and the latest word is the company may be negotiating payouts with the talent involved in the movies to compensate financially. Netflix made a similar huge announcement, though it is one that should incite less distrust.
Netflix has been the largest streaming channel for years. However, the company has never announced the entire lineup of movies it will be releasing during the year. The list is an impressive one including A-list stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, and Dwayne Johnson. Also included are celebrated filmmakers Adam McKay and Zack Snyder.
The current list is an impressive one. Currently, it is composed of 70 titles. The movies will span all genres from horror to westerns and a pair of musicals. Below are three of the most anticipated movies of the year.
