Let's look at Netflix's hot and anticipated new products. The best TV series and feature-length movies to give you a break from everyday life.

New items from Netflix that are available now or coming soon

We shouldn't forget that Netflix has new-fangled hipster series and highly diverse films from directors of both the old and the new school. Although, on the whole, they are not wrong and straightforward for any viewer, something positively delicious to the brain will be hard to find in our top, but the listed films remain the most expected from Netflix 2022.

Let's take a closer look at some of Netflix's highest-profile movie premieres of 2022. If you are more interested in other entertainment, like the teen patti online game, then follow this link.

Gray Man

A former CIA agent, now a hitman nicknamed the Grey Man, is trying to save his two daughters, whom he did not even know existed. He is opposed by an active operative who wants to put the Gray Man behind bars.

Enola Holmes 2

The star of The Stranger Things, 17-year-old Millie Bobby Brown, returns to the role of Enola Holmes, Sherlock Holmes' enterprising and inquisitive sister. Not only will Bobby Brown be back for a second movie, but Henry Cavill, star of The Witcher and the blockbuster Superman, will reprise his role as Sherlock Holmes. The movie is based on Nancy Springer's Enola Holmes mystery series, in which Holmes' sister, who also has flamboyant detective skills, takes center stage.

The Adam Project

The commercial success of "Protagonist" gave Sean Levy and Ryan Reynolds the green light for a new original project. This time it's a sci-fi film, The Adam Project, which will be released on Netflix and focus on time travel. The main character (played, of course, by Ryan Reynolds) is a young man named Adam who tries to right the wrongs of the past by helping younger versions of himself. Based on Sean Levy's filmography, it's safe to say that science fiction will sooner or later give way to simple human drama in the new film. But who's to say that's a bad thing?

Knives Out 2

In the sequel, shrewd detective Benoit Blacc (Daniel Craig) will take on the case again, investigating a new murder. The second film will have an even more stellar cast than the first, which, in addition to Craig, will feature singer Janelle Monet, Dave Batista, and Edward Norton. According to director Ryan Johnson, the success of the first part was so tremendous that they decided to make an entire franchise out of "Get the Knives." Especially since Craig is now free - as you know, his contract with "James Bond" is over. 

Operation Mincemeat

The story is based on actual events and focuses on a successful British disinformation operation that convinced the German high command that they were planning to invade Greece and Sardinia in mid-1943 when the actual target was Sicily.

Senior year

According to the story, in 2002, high school cheerleader Stephanie (Rebel Wilson) fell badly while performing a stunt and fell into a coma. Twenty years later, in 2022, she wakes up as a 37-year-old woman trying to regain her former popularity. But in a world that has changed, it won't be easy.

The Sandman

One of the long-awaited series is "The Sandman," based on the comic book of the same name by British writer Neil Gaiman.

The series will tell the story of the lord of dreams, also known as Morpheus. He is captured in 1916 by the occultist Roderick Burgess, but after 105 years, he breaks free. Now he intends to bring order to his kingdom. English actor Tom Sturridge plays his role.

Netflix signed a contract to produce the series in June 2019, but because of the pandemic, filming did not begin until October 2020. 

Stories of the Walking Dead

"The Walking Dead Stories" is a new spin-off of "The Walking Dead." It is an anthology series featuring new characters from the legendary franchise. The series is unrelated, but the action takes place in the same universe as the events of The Walking Dead.

She-Hulk

Good news for fans of Marvel Comics superheroes. In the new series, viewers will be introduced to a new character, lawyer Jennifer Walters, who specializes in superhuman-related cases.

She's also the cousin of the Hulk vigilante and has become a powerful version of herself with a green hue after she gets a blood transfusion from her cousin.

  • Tatiana Maslany; 

  • Mark Ruffalo; 

  • and Tim Roth will play the lead roles in the series, with Jamila Jamil getting the part of the main antagonist.

Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power

One of the most anticipated premieres of the year is "Lord of the Rings."

On July 14, Amazon revealed the first trailer for the upcoming series "The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power." It is a new project in John Tolkien's fantasy universe.

The creators of the show own the rights to the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "The Hobbit," and supplements (on the Second Age of Middle-earth).

The events of the series take place three thousand years before the time of "The Hobbit." The series focuses on the beginning of the alliance between Kelebrimbor and the dwarves, which Sauron, in the guise of Annatar, seeks to take advantage of. In addition, viewers will see the story of the emergence of the magic rings: elves, dwarves, and humans will resort to artifacts to fight back against the villain Sauron, who seeks to seize power in Middle-earth.

Viewers can expect two versions of "Pinocchio" at once

Disney has unveiled the trailer for "Pinocchio," a musical fantasy film directed by Robert Zemeckis and based on Carlo Collodi's tale. The film is an adaptation of the 1940 cartoon of the same name.

The primary role in it got actor Tom Hanks - he played Geppetto, Pinocchio's father.

The fact that Walt Disney Pictures is developing an adaptation of the animated film Pinocchio was announced seven years ago - in the spring of 2015. The principal shooting began in England on March 17, 2021, and was completed in April. The film will premiere on September 8, 2022, on the Disney service.

Meanwhile, Netflix and Guillermo del Toro unveiled the first trailer for the animated film "Pinocchio." An exact premiere date has not been disclosed, but the animated cartoon is due out on Netflix in December 2022.

Blondie is a movie about Marilyn Monroe.

Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for "Blondie," a film about Hollywood's most famous blonde, Marilyn Monroe. The film stars Ana de Armas, who played in "Blade Runner 2049" and "No Time to Die." However, the film's authors note that the picture is not biographical and is a study of the life of an actress through the prism of her inner world.

The role of actress' second husband, Joe DiMaggio, was played by Bobby Cannavale, and Andrew Dominick directed the film. It will premiere at the Venice Film Festival in early September 2022 and release on Netflix on September 28.

Without Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise: the "Interview with the Vampire" series

Another anticipated series is "Interview with the Vampire," based on the famous novel by American writer Anne Rice. The action will begin in the XIX century in Louisiana, and in the center of the plot will be two vampires.

The novel has already been adapted before: the most famous film version is the first volume of the saga "Interview with the Vampire: A Chronicle of Vampire Life" in 1994, where Tom Cruise played the leading roles, Brad Pitt and Antonio Banderas. The eight-episode series will premiere on October 2, 2022.
