By Kara Santos Published Feb 04, 2022 5:06 pm

Netflix is giving viewers more reasons to stay at home with its slate of original films being released this year, in time for the summer movie season.

The 2022 lineup is stacked with exciting new titles and star power, promising to make "every night a movie night."

In a trailer released Thursday (Feb. 3), the streaming giant offered sneak peeks at the hottest upcoming titles such as The Gray Man starring Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans, Spiderhead starring Chris Hemsworth, Slumberland starring Jason Momoa, and The Adam Project starring Ryan Reynolds and Mark Ruffalo, and loads more.

There are also a couple of highly awaited sequels to look forward to like Enola Holmes 2 starring Millie Bobbie Brown and Henry Cavill, and Knives Out 2 starring Daniel Craig.

It looks like viewers will get everything from brand new comedies, action-thrillers, book adaptations, musicals, teen rom-coms, family flicks and at least one holiday movie, Falling for Christmas starring Lindsay Lohan. 

According to Netflix, these fresh titles will be "dropping every single week."

Other films shown in the trailer include Day Shift, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, The Mother, The School For Good and Evil, Tall Girl 2, End of the Road, Hustle, We Have A Ghost, Me Time, and The Takedown, to name a few.

As reported by Deadline, the feature slate for this year includes at least 86 movies, 16 more than last year’s 70 titles. This means that Netflix will be releasing an average of two movies a week comprised of 61 English language narrative movies, 20 non-English titles, and five animated features.
