Between movies and TV shows, Netflix has numerous upcoming projects. In this list, we’ll be looking at the most anticipated upcoming movies on Netflix. 

To compile the list below, we’ll be using IMDb’s Movie Meter data which is updated by every Tuesday.

As one of the world’s largest movie and TV show databases and assigns a MovieMeter score based on the amount of inbound traffic to any respective page. We figure that the higher the traffic, the more people are excited about the project. IMDb continues to draw in over half a billion site visits every single month.

Note: MovieMeter scores are correct as of January 10th, 2023:

At the start of the global pandemic, Netflix dropped the first Extraction movie, quickly becoming one of the most successful Original films on the platform. Naturally, it didn’t take long for Netflix to greenlight its sequel.

Tasked with extracting a family who is at the mercy of a Georgian gangster, Tyler infiltrates one of the world’s deadliest prisons in order to save them.

Since his return to directing, Zack Snyder has made Netflix his new home, which has since greenlit an exciting number of his projects. Rebel Moon is rumored to have been based on Snyder’s pitch for a stand-alone Star Wars movie and is influenced by Snyder’s favorite film, Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai.

A peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius. Desperate, the colonists dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them make a stand.

If Rebel Moon has a limited release in theatres, it could certainly be worth attending for a true thematic experience.

Director: David Fincher
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama | Cast: Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender, Charles Parnell, Monique Ganderton, Sala Baker
Netflix Release Date: 2023

Another passion project that David Fincher has been interested in for years, The Killer is an adaptation of Alexis Nolent’s graphic novel. Upon release, The Killer will be the second feature film from Fincher of his 4 years exclusive deal with Netflix.

“A man solitary and cold, methodical and unencumbered by scruples or regrets, the killer waits in the shadows, watching for his next target. And yet the longer he waits, the more he thinks he’s losing his mind, if not his cool. A brutal, bloody and stylish noir story of a professional assassin lost in a world without a moral compass, this is a case study of a man alone, armed to the teeth and slowly losing his mind.”

1. You People

Director: Kenya Barris
Genre: Comedy, Romance | Cast: Andrea Savage, Jonah Hill, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Eddie Murphy, David Duchov
