In many ways, 2019 was a banner year for Netflix. With such notable releases like The Irishman, Marriage Story, Dolemite Is My Name, and many more, it’s safe to say that it’s been a stellar year for the streaming giant.

In a recent tweet, Netflix revealed some of its biggest upcoming projects, with more to be announced soon. In short, Netflix is looking to boast a variety of movies in the coming year that offers a wide range of options for viewers.
