Best Netflix movies 2022
We’ve entered into the new year, and you know what that means. It means a ton of new movies and shows are slated to drop on Netflix throughout 2022. Also, some of your favorite films that have confirmed sequels will be arriving on the streamer this year. With so much new content coming out soon, it makes it hard for you to pick which films should be added to your must-watch list. So to help you out, we’re going to share the best Netflix movies coming in 2022.
We haven’t seen any new Netflix movies added to the streamer in January yet that are worth a watch other than The Wasteland. And it looks like there won’t be a good selection of new movies releasing in January altogether. The only upcoming movies you should be on the lookout for in January are Munich – The Edge of War, Brazen, The Royal Treatment, and Home Team starring Kevin James.
However, if you look at 2022 as a whole, there are so many highly anticipated titles scheduled to land on Netflix this year. This is why we’ve compiled a list of the best Netflix movies coming in 2022 with their release dates. To kick off our list is the upcoming mystery film Knives Out 2.
Knives Out 2 release date
When Knives Out was released in theaters in 2019, it quickly became one of the biggest movies of the year. It received critical acclaim for its outstanding acting and well-written screenplay. So many people swarm to the theaters to feast their eyes upon this Daniel Craig-led movie. It was a box office hit, grossing $311.4 million worldwide against a $40 million budget, and received several award nominations.
Shortly after the movie’s release in theaters, there were talks of a Knives Out 2, but there wasn’t anything set in stone. A sequel was expected due to the film’s success, but it was a great surprise to discover that Netflix would be the movie’s streaming home. In March 2021, Netflix agreed to pay $469 million to acquire streaming rights to two sequels written and directed by Rian Johnson. So not only will we be getting a Knives Out 2, but also a Knives Out 3.
Each film will have an entirely new cast (except Daniel Craig) and setting. An official synopsis of what the sequel will be about is unknown at the moment, but you can expect Detective Benoit Blanc to be involved in a new case.
Production on Knives Out 2 wrapped in September 2021 and is now in post-production. An official release date hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s expected to come to Netflix in 2022. Our best guess on when we could see Knives Out 2 is in summer or fall 2022. However, Netflix might hold the mystery film for a holiday release sometime in November or December. As soon as we become privy to the sequel’s release date, we’ll inform you right away!
