Netflix has become one of the biggest players in original movie content. Rivalling some of the big studios like Universal and Warner Bros, Netflix has added some huge movies to their roster in 2019, including possible Oscar nominees The Irishman and Marriage Story. But what original movies can we expect to see arriving on Netflix in 2020?
To All the Boys: PS I Still Love You
To All the Boys: PS I Still Love You is the second part in the To All the Boys film series, and follows Lara Jean, a young girl who writes love letters to all the boys she feel an intense passion for, before locking them away.
However, when her young sister Kitty mails all her letters, Lara Jean is forced to confront some of the boys she has loved, with a number of them trying to speak to her about her feelings.
The first film was a huge success for Netflix, and the second is likely to be similar as it continues to follow Lara and Peter Kavinsky, one of her loves, in a similar narrative to the second book in Jenny Han’s trilogy, P.S. I Still Love You.
The movie is due to arrive on Netflix on February 12, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
All the Bright Places
Adapted from Jennifer Niven’s YA novel, All the Bright Places will star Elle Fanning and Justice Smith.
The film follows teenagers Finch (Smith) and Violet (Fanning) after they talk each other down from a bell tower, with both of them attempting suicide.
The teens then embark on a school project and they begin to learn more and more about one another’s past and how they are dealing with their struggles.
The Boys in the Band
The Boys in the Band is a movie version of the award winning play from Mart Crowley, which follows a group of nine men at a party.
The play was controversial as it was an early film to put the lives of gay men on stage, and has been revived on stage and in a 1970 film by William Friedkin.
The 2020 film will see all the actors from the 2018 Broadway revival reprise their roles, including Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto, The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons and Girls’ Andrew Rannells.

Ben Wheatley’s latest movie will see Lily James and Armie Hammer attack a classic.
The film will be a new take on the Daphne du Maurier thriller, which has been adapted by Alfred Hitchcock and also in Bollywood and Hindi films.
