Netflix has been the reigning champion especially in the last year or so. And, they obviously wish to retain their title of the “biggest streaming service” in play. So, they will continue to offer us great content throughout 2021 as well. January has been great so far as we’ve got projects like Cobra Kai, Outside the Wire, Lupin, and many other binge-worthy films and shows. But February is also going to be quite enticing. Here’s our list of the 10 best projects (Acquired and Originals) hitting Netflix in February 2021:
Malcolm & Marie
Director Sam Levinson brings us “a story of love” with just Zendaya and John David Washington as the two cast members of the film. This romance drama will have Washington playing a movie director, and Zendaya playing his girlfriend. Their relationship will be put to test after they return from a movie premiere and discuss their past relationships. Malcolm & Marie arrives on February 5.
There might not be any big-budget English movies hitting Netflix next month, but there’s an international sci-fi space drama arriving on the streamer. It is set in the year 2092, and we’re going to follow a space crew that collects debris in outer space. But they come across an unexpected threat and will have to soldier on to save Earth. The Korean flick arrives on February 5.
To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean
This Valentine’s, Netflix brings us the third film in the teen rom-com franchise featuring Lana Condor as Lara Jean. Fans have loved the first two entries focusing on Jean and Noah Centineo’s Peter. Now they’ll get to see these two lovers head to Prom. It will be an important chapter in Jean’s life as she nears the ending of her high school. To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean arrives on February 12.
Kevin James will lead a sitcom series playing the chief of a struggling NASCAR crew. When the old owner of their team steps down and passes the team off to his daughter, James will have to deal with the changes that come with the new leadership. The whole crew will have to adapt in order to win, or at least not be fired from the team. I know the description doesn’t sound as funny, but the series will definitely be hilarious. You could start streaming The Crew from February 15.
Tribes of Europa
You loved Netflix’s German mind-bending thriller series, Dark. Now, they are coming up with a big-budget German sci-fi series called Tribes of Europa. It is set in a dystopian future, where we’re going to follow the tribes that survived a global catastrophe. February 19 is when you can start streaming this drama series.
People may not have liked the 2016 biopic, Pelé: Birth of a Legend. But Netflix is bringing us a documentary series that will take us through the achievements of the Soccer King, Pelé. It hits Netflix on February 23.
The Sinner (Part 3)
This mystery thriller has had us on our toes since 2017. It has had great critical acclaim, and the fans loved Part 3 when it arrived on the USA Network last year. Now, the Netflix subscribers could finally get to stream the third chapter of Detective Harry Ambrose’s murder investigations from February 6.
Netflix users could finally get to rewatch this mind-bending Christopher Nolan masterpiece. Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, and Elliot Page were absolutely amazing in this big-budget action thriller event. You might have loved it with one viewing, but I’d suggest that you give it a second or a third rewatch. That’s when you’d be able to really appreciate the magnificence of Inception’s storytelling. February 1st is when you can watch it again.
Miles Teller and Jonah Hill starred in 2016’s comedy War Drama. Now, this film isn’t director Todd Phillips’ best effort, but it will ensure that you have a good time when you watch it. Besides Teller and Hill, Ana de Armas proved to be a nice addition. But Bradley Cooper’s short role is what you’re going to love the most. You could stream War Dogs on February 8.
The Conjuring (1 & 2)
The two Conjuring movies are really the crown jewels of WB’s The Conjuring Universe. Most people would say that the sequel wasn’t as great as the original. While I’d agree with that, I would also say that The Conjuring 2 has quite a few nicely built-up jump scares that will keep you on the edge of your seats. So before you get to watch The Conjuring 3 later this year, revisit The Conjuring 1 and 2 from February 21.
