Netflix was always the leading streamer in the market when it comes to content. Sure, others have cropped up and posed a bit of a threat. HBO Max intrigued everyone with their exclusive DC content like Zack Snyder’s Snyder Cut. Disney Plus is cornering the market with all their Star Wars and Marvel series announced late last year. But the new Netflix 2021 film preview trailer reminds us just how awesome the original streamer still is with their massive investment into original content. 

Netflix 2021 Film Preview Trailer Teases A Lot Of Movies

Netflix begins this new trailer by making a promise. Apparently, they will be releasing a new original movie every week. Or movies even. The trailer is jam-packed with stars and the first looks at some of the biggest movies of the year. Some we’ve already seen a trailer for, and others that totally caught me by surprise. So let’s take a look at some of the bangers of this new year. 

The trailer opens with three of the biggest movie stars making their presence felt. Dwayne Johnson (upcoming Black Adam), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman 1984), and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) introduce the trailer. We then follow some huge stars as they discuss how much they love movies. It honestly started off a little trite, but the stars talking about their passions, intercut with footage of each of their upcoming movies, was a little exciting. 

Some Of The Biggest Movies Of The Year

Right away our eyes go to Regina King as her upcoming Western, The Harder They Fall comes on the screen along with the swagger of her costars Idris Elba and Lakeith Stanfield. The movie also features a massive all-star cast that includes Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country), Zazie Beetz, and Delroy Lindo (5 Bloods). Then we’ve got Halle Barry’s directorial debut in the MMA fighting movie, Bruised. Lin Manuel Miranda shows up to promote his directorial debut as well. 

Dave Bautista shows up with his latest movie, one of the most awaited in the last few years, actually. Army Of The Dead is the return of Zack Snyder to what put him on the map, a zombie movie. And the footage looks so totally Snyder, with a slow-mo 360-degree camera movement of guns galore! Then we finally get to see Reynolds and Johnson in action in their own Red Notice, and their dynamic from the small clip looks hilarious. 

The Netflix 2021 Film Preview Trailer Is Actually Ingenious

While it may seem like a sizzle reel of clips from multiple movies, Netflix’s 2021 film preview trailer is actually a great idea. It highlights the very much fan-driven experience that Netflix is, by having the filmmakers directly address them in a preview that provides a lot of firsts for a lot of new movies. The movies also don’t feel like the usual Netflix originals from a few years ago, with fading stars and sub-par stories. The new movies look far from it actually, with some pretty incredible talent. Movies like Malcom & Marie, Escape From Spiderhead and The Woman In The Window. What’s even more brilliant is how the trailer ends with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence’s new movie, Don’t Look Up. 

Getting Ahead Of The Competition in the Streaming Industry

With HBO Max and Disney Plus both investing heavily into their own IP for original content, it makes sense for Netflix to get ahead with their own brand new stuff, as well as returning fans of existing Netflix franchises. The movies also range from action, superheroes, rom-com, and family friendly affairs. It’s very much something for everyone. 

Which of Netflix’s new movies are you most excited about? Let me know in the comments below.
