Since Netflix debuted House of Cards in 2013, it has been primarily known as a streaming service for original TV series, albeit ones that drop all episodes at once so they can be watched like an extra-long movie. But since the release of 2018’s Mudbound, it’s also become a place for feature films starring A-list actors. In 2021, Netflix announced a movie slate so vast, it necessitates debuting more than one new original film a week. To follow that up, Netflix’s 2022 new movie slate looks to top that, and brings a cavalcade of stars to the party as well.

Some of the films in the preview trailer announcing Netflix’s 2022 films are ones that have been highly anticipated since the streamer initially announced them, like the sequel to Enola Holmes, starring Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill, and the all-star smorgasbord that is Knives Out 2, led by Daniel Craig. Others will come as a surprise, like the sight of Jason Momoa in Slumberland or Chris Hemsworth in Spiderhead. There’s also huge diversity in this list, with animated projects like Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio to live-action period piece romance like Jane Austen’s Persuasion.

Check out the first footage from several of the streaming services upcoming new films in the trailer.
