With what’s felt like the longest January in history now behind us, we’re happy to be able to look ahead to a brand new month.
And while the UK is still on lockdown, Neflix is making things a bit more bearable by keeping up with its promise on “one new original film per week” in 2021.
In the next four weeks we can look forward to brand new offerings starring Zendaya, Rosamund Pike and John David Washington – plus the final instalment in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Here’s what we’ve got to look forward to in February on Netflix...
Malcolm & Marie (5 February)
Netlflix says: Sam Levinson teams up with Zendaya and John David Washington for 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.
To All The Boys: Always And Forever (12 February)
Netflix says: 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.
I Care A Lot (19 February)
Netflix says: 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. It’s a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business-partner and lover Fran 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, Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play — one that’s neither fair, nor square.
There’s Someone Inside Your House (release date TBC)
Netflix says: Makani Young has moved from Hawaii to quiet, small-town Nebraska to live with her grandmother and finish high school, but as the countdown to graduation begins, her classmates are stalked by a killer intent on exposing their darkest secrets to the entire town, terrorising victims while wearing a life-like mask of their own face.
With a mysterious past of her own, Makani and her friends must discover the killer’s identity before they become victims themselves.
