Happy Friday and welcome to a heavily dominated daily roundup that consists of Netflix Originals from around the world. Here’s a look at the 11 new titles to hit Netflix US for February 5th, 2021, and what’s trending in the top 10s.
Before we dig in, a couple of removals to touch on. The Expatriate (otherwise known as Erased) was removed from Netflix US today alongside OCTB.
Today is your last day to watch Desolate (2018), Lila & Even (2015), and Woody Woodpecker (2017).
As a reminder, you can find a fully expanded list of what’s new with more info on each title via our what’s new hub and we’ve also just updated the February 2021 guide with 4 new titles lined up for later in the month.
Malcolm & Marie (2021)
Genre: Drama, Romance
Director: Sam Levinson
Cast: Zendaya, John David Washington
Runtime: 106 min
Malcolm & Marie is the big new movie release on Netflix this week and is a black and white film that features two of the biggest stars in the world right now.
Here’s what you can expect if this is the first you’ve heard of it:
“As a filmmaker and his girlfriend return home from his movie premiere, smoldering tensions and painful revelations push them toward a romantic reckoning.”
What’s interesting about this movie is how divided opinions are for it. One of the best reviews we’ve seen is from Nina Metz from the Chicago Tribune saying the “performances are terrific,” but going in-depth on why could be viewed negatively and a lot of its depends on your tolerance on the characters themselves and the fact it’s a very talky movie.
Space Sweepers (2021)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Sci-Fi
Director: Sung-hee Jo
Cast: Daniel Joey Albright, Seon-kyu Jin, Song Joong-Ki, Milan-Devi LaBrey
Runtime: 136 min
One movie we suspect is going to take off in a big way over the coming days is Space Sweepers, a new sci-fi adventure out of South Korea.
The stunning CGI in this one is the big draw but you stay for a convincing story and an interesting global attitude of the film (it dips in multiple languages throughout).
Early reviews are strong with the movie sitting at a 7.1/10 on IMDb as of the time of publishing.
