Netflix in February: 3 Exciting New Movies You’ll Want to Add to Your Watchlist
It’s 2021, and it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting any big theatrical releases anytime soon. Luckily, Netflix has some major movies scheduled for February. Here’s a look at three new note-worthy films you can add to your Netflix queue in the next few weeks.
‘Malcolm & Marie’ comes to Netflix on Feb. 5
Euphoria creator Sam Levinson is teaming up with Zendaya again for his new Netflix film, Malcolm & Marie. The film stars John David Washington as Malcolm, a filmmaker, and Zendaya plays Marie, his girlfriend. The Netflix synopsis for the movie describes it as:
An achingly romantic drama in which a filmmaker and his girlfriend return home following a celebratory movie premiere as he awaits what’s sure to be imminent critical and financial success. The evening suddenly takes a turn as revelations about their relationships begin to surface, testing the strength of their love. Working with cinematographer Marcell Rev, Levinson creates a film of rare originality; an ode to the great Hollywood romances as well as a heartfelt expression of faith in the medium’s future.Netflix
‘To All the Boys: Always and Forever’ premieres on Feb. 12
The third and final installment in the series, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, picks back up with Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) and her boyfriend, Peter Kavinskey (Noah Centineo), as they get ready to start a new chapter in their lives.
“As Lara Jean Covey prepares for the end of high school and the start of adulthood, a pair of life-changing trips lead her to reimagine what life with her family, friends, and Peter will look like after graduation,” the Netflix description for the film reads.
Anna Cathcart, Jordan Fisher, Madeleine Arthur, Emilija Baranac, Janel Parrish, and John Corbett will join Lana Condor and Noah Centineo and reprise their roles from the earlier movies.
‘I Care A Lot’ hits Netflix on Feb. 19
I Care A Lot is a dark comedy that comes from writer/producer/director J Blakeson. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2020 and received critical acclaim. It stars Academy Award-nominated actor Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, State of the Union), Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Chris Messina (The Mindy Project), Elza Gonzalez, and two time Oscar winner Diane Evelyn Wiest (In Treatment).
“Poised with sharklike self-assurance, Marla Grayson (Rosamund Pike) is a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means,” the Netflix synopsis reads.
It’s a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business partner and lover Fran (Eiza González) use with brutal efficiency on their latest “cherry,” Jennifer Peterson (Dianne Wiest) — a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster (Peter Dinklage), Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play — one that’s neither fair nor square.Netflix
