The Power of The Dog
Coming to Netflix December 1, 2021
New Zealand born filmmaker Jane Campion has had a respected career for a few decades, having been launched into the international film spotlight with the 1993 film The Piano, but now in 2021 she may get her biggest success yet, as Netflix is set to release her adaptation of the 1967 Western novel The Power of The Dog.
Featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as a rancher in 1925 Montana who believes love is not in the cards for him, The Power of The Dog has a strong cast, a great premise, and some awards already under its belt, as Jane Campion won a Silver Lion for best direction at the most recent Venice International Film Festival. Netflix has been pretty good lately at releasing at least one movie that gets in the big Awards Conversation, and The Power of the Dog is that movie for them in 2021.
And Benedict Cumberbatch gave himself nicotine poisoning three times smoking so many cigarettes during the making of this thing that it would be a shame to not watch the movie and let all that suffering go to waste.
Don’t Look Up
Coming to Netflix December 24, 2021
How about a two hour and twenty-plus minute long disaster comedy about an asteroid about to hit Earth and the two hapless astronomers tasked with going around on a media tour to warn people about it? No, not interested?
What if I told you it is from the writer-director of Anchorman, Step-Brothers, and The Big Short? Getting a little more intrigued maybe? What if we throw in two of the world’s biggest movie stars in Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as the lead astronomers? Getting better, right?
Well then let’s round out this cast with a bunch of nobodies like Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Tyler Perry, Timothée Chalamet and Ariana Grande? Are you starting to see the picture here? You see how this is shaping up to be one of the biggest comedies in years, and you notice how it is going to be a Netflix movie? Isn’t that wild? If I told you this entire write up consisted of all questions, would you believe me?
…and here’s everything else Coming to Netflix in DECEMBER 2021…
