Netflix 2022: Knives Out 2; Gray Man–First Look

‘Knives Out 2′, Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans’ ‘Gray Man’

The streaming service put out a star-studded trailer touting its 2022 film slate, which will include one new release a week.

Netflix has released a trailer featuring first looks at upcoming films such as Rian Johnson’s Knives Out sequel, the Russo brothers’ The Gray Man and the Jamie Foxx vampire movie The Day Shift.

The star-studded trailer, released Thursday, includes actors directly addressing the camera while in character. Some appear in full costume, such as Enola Holmes 2‘s Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill and The School for Good and Evil‘s Kerry Washington and Charlize Theron. Grey Man star Ryan Gosling and Day Shift‘s Foxx say their lines in the middle of action scenes.


Other stars filming messages for the 2022 slate trailer include Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Reynolds, Halle Berry, Chris Hemsworth, Jason Momoa, Mark Wahlberg Kevin Hart and Queen Latifah. Gathering footage of A-listers in character was no small task, with the Netflix team grabbing talent where they could, be it during production or on press days.

The streaming service, which has 222 million total paid subscribers globally, plans to drop one new film a week this year, with Knives Out 2 considered one of its crown jewels.

Netflix acquired rights for two sequels in the Daniel Craig starring franchise for $469 million last year.

On Jan. 21, Netflix stock fell after the company projected slower subscriber growth going forward. The stock remains down from January highs, but has been on the rebound over the past week.
