It’s that time again! Time to talk about what new stuff is hitting Netflix next month. And let me tell you, folks, the line-up for February is looking a little anemic. Netflix has spent the last few years going all-in on their original programming, which means that they’re snapping up less and less familiar titles. As a result, the streaming service unleashes a slew of originals that may or may not be good while cutting down on stuff you might actually want to watch. It’s a bit rough, but that’s the way the Netflix cookie crumbles. So here are the best TV shows and movies coming to Netflix in February 2021.

Michael Myers is stepping out in the latest Halloween Kills image. The iconic, immortal slasher, known to his friends and family as The Shape, returns in the upcoming sequel to 2018’s Halloween. Jamie Lee Curtis is back again as Laurie Strode, and the sequel will be picking up immediately after the previous film’s conclusion. This image underlines that, showing Michael emerging from the burning house Laurie and her daughter and granddaughter left him in right before the end credits rolled.

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Series: 30 Coins

last night in soho image new

I’m very excited to see Last Night in Soho, Edgar Wright‘s first straight-up horror movie (as opposed to the horror-comedies he’s made before). The movie was due out in 2020, but of course, the coronavirus got in the way. Now, Wright’s Soho is set to arrive in 2021, and there’s a new image from the film to drum up hype. The pic features Thomasin McKenzie looking appropriately freaked the eff out. McKenzie plays a modern-day woman who makes “a mysterious connection” with an actress from the 1960s, played by Anya Taylor-Joy.

pixar popcorn trailer

Some of your favorite Pixar characters are back for Pixar Popcorn, a new collection of mini-shorts (which means they’re extra short, I guess) set to stream on Disney+. The animated shorts feature characters from Toy Story, Finding Nemo, CarsThe Incredibles, and more in “all-new, bite-size stories created by Pixar Animation Studios’ talented animators.” Watch the Pixar Popcorn trailer below.

wonka prequel

Hollywood loves brand awareness. They love it more than life itself. A studio is far more likely to give a green light to an established property than to something fresh and original, because that’s just how it goes. It’s nothing new – Tinseltown has been doing this for decades. But that doesn’t make it any less draining. The latest example: Wonka, a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory prequel movie that explores the origins of chocolatier and child murderer Willy Wonka. It sounds unnecessary, but there’s one silver lining: Paul King, the filmmaker behind the wonderful Paddington films, is at the helm.

If that news sounds familiar, that’s because this movie has been in the works for some time now. But now it has a release date.

john wick 4 filming

If all goes according to plan, Keanu Reeves could be slipping back into his John Wick suit and murdering nameless henchmen very, very soon. As was previously announced, John Wick 4 and John Wick 5 already have a green light, and the plan was originally to shoot them back to back. But the coronavirus pandemic has made many such plans obsolete, leaving the shooting schedule of John Wick 4 and 5 up in the air. But according to co-star Ian McShane, filming on John Wick 4 is probably going to start this year.
