Netflix Adding 52 Movies In December 2020

Netflix next month (December 2020) plans to add 52 new movies to its streaming lineup, including some high-profile originals.

The new movies will include Mank, the Netflix original dramatic film starring Gary Oldman as Herman J. Mankiewicz, who co-wrote (with Orson Welles) the screenplay for Citizen Kane. The film, directed by David Fincher (Seven, Zodiac, Gone Girl), chronicles the tension between Mankiewicz and Welles during the making of what many critics call the greatest movie ever. (Relative unknown Tom Burke plays Welles.)

Rottentomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives Mank a score of 89 out of a possible 100, based on 116 reviews.

“Sharply written and brilliantly performed, Mank peers behind the scenes of Citizen Kane to tell an old Hollywood story that could end up being a classic in its own right,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.

Also notable in December: The Prom, a Netflix original musical film starring Meryl Streep and James Corden as fading Broadway stars who go to Indiana to fight for a high school girl’s right to bring another girl to the prom. (Yes, it’s directed by Ryan Murphy.); The Midnight Sky, a Netflix original movie directed by George Clooney, who also stars as a scientist who rushes to stop a group of orbiting astronauts from returning to a coming disaster on Earth; the original Jurassic Park, the Steven Spielberg-directed dinosaur fantasy film starring Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and the best CGI effects you’ll ever see; and, speaking of Mr. Spielberg, E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial, the classic 1982 adventure film about a little space alien who just wants to go home.
