Introducing Netflix Original Film: What Happened To Monday

There’s a new Netflix Original movie coming your way. We have all the details you need to know about What Happened To Monday, including the release date.

Get ready for a new, mind bending sci-fi flick from Netflix. The dystopian tale is brought to you by Tommy Wirkola, the Norwegian film director who gave us Nazi zombies and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.


The Plot

In the future, a grievous overpopulation has led to overreliance on GM crops which cause abnormally high instances of multiple births. In response, The Child Allocation Bureau institutes a one-child policy. Led by noxious bureaucrat Glenn Close, they detain siblings whenever it finds them and puts them in the deep freeze of suspended animation, presumably until the planet’s climate, food and population crises have subsided.


The Cast

Noomi Rapace plays the seven sisters, Monday through Wednesday. You may recognize her from the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series of movies, so we know she’s a badass.

Willem Dafoe is the grandfather trying to keep the septuplets safe.

Glenn Close is the near fascist-leader pursuing the ladies.


The Trailer

With solid action scenes and big chases, this is the perfect late-summer film to get us through August.


Release Date

What Happened To Monday will be released worldwide on Friday, August 18th, 2017.
