2021 movie preview: The best films coming out next year If you needed someone to direct the movie version of 2020, you’d probably go for David Cronenberg. We’re optimistic that 2021 will have more of an upbeat, Ron Howard-ish hue to it when it comes to cinemas and the movies that will hopefully fill them.Howard doesn’t have a film out next year, but there are exciting new offerings from some all-time greats. There’s a lot to look forward to – including plenty of buzzy Netflix movies. Of course, there’s a ton of exciting, so-far-undated movies postponed from quarantine-hit 2020 to keep an eye out for too. Get ready to go big again.

The story of Sutton Hoo – when an early medieval graveyard was discovered beneath an English field in 1939 – is brought back to life in a Netflix period drama full to bursting with dependable British thesps and gauzy summer skies. Ralph Fiennes plays an amateur archaeologist hired by Carey Mulligan’s rich widow to take his shovel to a few burial mounds on her estate. Lily James and Johnny Flynn lend support in a story of morale-boosting discoveries playing out under the shadow of war.
Out Jan 29 on Netflix.
