Canadian director Shawn Levy (Free Guy, Stranger Things) is once again joining forces with Canadian acting icon (and star of Free Guy) Ryan Reynolds. The movie, which was shot in and around Vancouver, will follow a time-travelling pilot as he teams up with both his older and younger self to save the future.

Release Date: March 11th

Apollo 10 ½: A Space Age Childhood

Coming from renowned director Richard Linklater is this story centered on the 1969 moon landing told from two perspectives- the astronaut and a 10-year-old boy with dreams of his own. Taking inspiration from his own life, the movie is part coming of age, part social commentary, and part outer space adventure.

Release Date: TBD


Based on the novel of the same name, Ana de Armas is set to play a fictional version of Marilyn Monroe. Those who received an early copy of the film (including the author herself) sung its praises, and director Andrew Dominik is behind one of the most beautiful movies of the modern era- The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. So we’ve, understandably, got some very high hopes.

Release Date: TBD

The Bubble

The newest project from comedy kingpin Judd Apatow follows a group of actors stuck inside a pandemic bubble as they attempt to complete an action movie. While the premise might be a tough pill to swallow, the cast (Karen Gillan, Fred Armisen, Keegan-Michael Key, etc…) certainly is not, and we’re praying it’ll be the pandemic equivalent to Tropic Thunder.

Release Date: TBD

Enola Holmes 2

We arrive at the first sequel on this list! Millie Bobby Brown will be returning to the role of Enola, the youngest sibling in the Holmes’ family, with Henry Cavill coming back as Sherlock. This time around, she’s been handed her first case- tracking down a missing girl.

Release Date: TBD

The Good Nurse

Tobias Lindholm (Another Round) is directing this movie about a nurse investigating suspicious deaths that may be attributed to her colleague. Not only is this based on true events (and a book to go with them), but legendary director Darren Aronofsky is one of the producers.

Release Date: TBD

The Gray Man

The Russo brothers, who are behind everything from Arrested Development to Avengers: Endgame, are directing this thriller with a star-studded cast. Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, and more will be exploring the world of global espionage, as the CIA’s top mercenary becomes the subject of a manhunt.

Release Date: TBD

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio

This one is going to be wild. Not only is Guillermo del Toro at the helm, but he’s opted for a ‘whimsical, stop-motion musical’ to tell the iconic tale. Pair that vision with some of our favourite actors (Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, and Tim Blake Nelson to name a few) and we’re expecting this to be a standout project, even from del Toro.

Release Date: TBD


From director Yeon Sang-ho (Train to Busan, Hellbound) comes this dystopian sci-fi movie about a post-apocalyptic Earth where survivors are battling it out in the last shelter built for human survival. The apparent way out? Cloning a super soldier into a scalable robot.

Release Date: TBD

Knives Out 2

Daniel Craig returns as Benoit Blanc, who this time around is headed to Greece to peel back the layers of yet another mystery involving a colourful cast of characters (including Edward Norton, Dave Bautista, and Kate Hudson). What’s more, the same director, Rian Johnson, is back. Yeah, this is easily one of the most anticipated movies to come to Netflix Canada in 2022.

Release Date: TBD

Monkey Man

The directorial debut of Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Green Knight) is a revenge story about a man who emerges from prison to find a world ‘enmeshed in greed and eroding spiritual values’. Normally, we wouldn’t care about the premise, but we’ve got faith Patel will deliver.

Release Date: TBD

The Mother

Another star-studded movie with Canadian ties! Shot in and around Vancouver, The Mother is, naturally, about an assassin (Jennifer Lopez) who comes out of hiding to protect a daughter she gave up years before.

Release Date: TBD

The Mothership

Halle Berry and Omari Hardwick will co-star in this sci-fi adventure that follows a mother and her children as they uncover an extraterrestrial object underneath their home. What’s more, it’s directed by Matt Charman, who received widespread acclaim for his help writing the thriller Bridge of Spies.

Release Date: TBD

My Father’s Dragon

What’s this roundup without a little animation! Coming from the acclaimed studio Cartoon Saloon and based on a novel of the same name, My Father’s Dragon follows a boy who travels to ‘Wild Island’ in search of a dragon, encountering ferocious beasts along the way.

Release Date: TBD

From Academy-award-winning director John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) comes this spy thriller following two intelligence agents as they plot to break Hitler’s grip on Europe during the Second World War.

Release Date: TBD

The Pale Blue Eye

Christian Bale is set to star in this ‘Gothic thriller’ that has been in the works for over a decade. The plot follows a series of fictional murders at West Point Academy in 1830, where a detective (Bale) investigates the connection between the murders and a young cadet by the name of Edgar Allan Poe.

Release Date: TBD

The School for Good and Evil

Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks, Bridesmaids) is directing this ‘modern fairy tale’ based on the bestselling book series. Two friends, Agatha and Sophie, are swept away to an enchanted school, where they find themselves on opposing sides of trying to balance, you guessed it, good and evil.

Release Date: TBD

This is worth an inclusion on name alone. Some 50 years after the first killings (woah), Leatherface is back to terrorize a group of friends once more.

Release Date: February 18th

Wendell & Wild

Another stop-motion project on this list! Who woulda thought. But, when we saw that both Henry Selick (Coraline, The Nightmare Before Christmas) and Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) were collaborating on this, we knew we had to include it. The plot follows two demon brothers who try to convince a teenager to summon them to the Land of the Living, with hilarious consequences.

Release Date: TBD

White Noise

Sorry in advance for getting all nerdy about this one. The second-ever adaptation of a novel from one of the most prominent postmodern writers around, Noah Baumbach will direct this movie about a midwestern professor caught between a mundane life and some seriously messed up circumstances. White Noise is our second favourite Don Delillo book, so we’re hoping End Zone will get adapted sooner or later with this movie’s inevitable success.

Release Date: TBD

You People

From director Kenya Barris (black-ish) comes this ensemble comedy about a new couple that experiences everything from societal expectations to generational differences. It’s a seriously good ensemble too- Jonah Hill, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Eddie Murphy and more have all joined in.

Release Date: TBD

Hoo-wee! Do we have a lot to look forward to with all the movies coming to Netflix Canada in 2022. Don’t worry folks, we’ll make sure to update you every month with what you can look forward to as well.
