The Old Guard arrived in the Summer of 2020 when plenty of the world was still in lockdown. After a fantastic performance that saw millions of subscribers stream from around the world, Netflix deemed it fit to greenlight a sequel.

“Andromache of Scythia and her band of soldiers are back in this second story chronicling the battles and burdens of their dubious immortality. Nile’s addition to the team has given them new purpose and new direction, but when you’ve got 6,000 years of history at your back, the past is always ready to return with a vengeance.”

orion and the dark most anticipated netflix original shows november 21st 2023

While the animation market was dominated by the likes of Disney, Dreamworks, and Illumination, Netflix has done a great job over the past several years cementing its place as one of the best platforms on the internet for animated movies. Hoping for their next smash hit will be Orion and the Dark from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and I’m Thinking of Ending Things writer Charlie Kaufman.

The synopsis for Orion and the Dark has been sourced from Netflix:

“Follows Orion, a young boy who is afraid of heights, and pets, and rendered nearly catatonic by the worst of all perils: the dark. The Dark takes Orion on a nighttime trip to prove to the youngster that the only thing to fear is fear itself.”

Millie Bobby Brown is one of the most popular young actresses in the world right now. This is why it isn’t surprising that Netflix continues to lock her down for some of their biggest new projects. The feature was previously scheduled for a 2023 release. However, we have since learned that the title has been removed from the 2023 release slate.

In this new fantasy film, a young woman who thinks she is being married to a perfect prince is thrown into a pit where she discovers she’s not going to be a princess after all, but a sacrifice to appease a bloodthirsty dragon. Trying to survive long enough until someone can save her — she soon realizes that no one is coming and this “damsel” must save herself.

Genre: Romance, Comedy
Cast: Tom Ellis, Gina Rodriguez, Liza Koshy, Joel Courtney, Damon Wayans Jr.

Landing on Netflix just in time for Valentine’s Day is Players, which is a long-awaited title given that it was initially part of Netflix’s 2023 lineup.

Gina Rodriguez plays Mack who is well-known for spending years devising the perfect hook-up plays for her friends but she unexpectedly falls for one of her targets.

For the first time in almost three decades, Eddie Murphy will return to reprise one of his most iconic roles, Axel Foley, the brash loudmouthed cop from Detroit. Plot details are still under wraps at this time, so it’s unclear if we’ll see Axel Foley as a police commissioner or whether or not his antics have kept him from promotions.


2. Frankenstein

Director: Guillermo del Toro
Genre: Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi
Cast: Mia Goth, Oscar Isaac, Christoph Waltz
Production Status: Pre-Production
Netflix Release Date: 2025
MOVIEmeter: 1,718

frankenstein most anticipated netflix original movies october 17th 2023

There have been many adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, however, you could argue there is currently no better director out there than Guilermo del Toro to tackle the classic tale.

“Dr. Pretorious, who needs to track down Frankenstein’s monster who is believed to have died in a fire forty years before in order to continue the experiments of Dr. Frankenstein.”

Undoubtedly, the huge ensemble cast coming together for this new horror is what is propelling it up the charts. Jacob Elordi leads with Mia Goth, and Oscar Isaac are also due to star.

Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Cast: Ed Skrein, Jena Malone, Charlie Hunnam, Cary Elwes, Anthony Hopkins

Following the release of Part 1 of Rebel Moon over Christmas, we don’t have long to wait until the second part drops on Netflix in April 2024. Given this sequel is just around the corner, it should be no surprise that Part 2 tops the list of most anticipated upcoming Netflix Original movies.

Per Netflix, here’s what you can expect from the second movie:

“REBEL MOON – PART TWO: THE SCARGIVER continues the epic saga of Kora and the surviving warriors as they prepare to sacrifice everything, fighting alongside the brave people of Veldt, to defend a once peaceful village, a newfound homeland for those who have lost their own in the fight against the Motherworld. On the eve of their battle the warriors must face the truths of their own pasts, each revealing why they fight. As the full force of the Realm bears down on the burgeoning rebellion, unbreakable bonds are forged, heroes emerge, and legends are made.”
