The streaming wars are just as fiery and competitive as ever. Disney+ now has one Marvel TV show under its belt (WandaVision), with another one to come in March (The Falcon and The Winter Soldier). In response, Netflix is broadening its reach with its list of new releases for March 2021.
Netflix always features plenty of international options for viewers across the globe, but March is the first month where it seems as though international releases make up roughly half of Netflix’s originals. And that’s great! China’s The Yin Yang Master and Spain’s Coven of Sisters both look to be intriguing films this month.
On the U.S. domestic side of things, however, pickings are bit slimmer. March 3 sees the release of the intensely American-sounding true crime documentary Murder Among the Mormons. That will be followed up by the animated Pacific Rim: The Black on March 4. Perhaps the biggest potential TV hit this month, however, will be The Irregulars on March 26. This series features a novel concept that’s set in the world of Sherlock Holmes.
Original movies of note this month are the Notorious B.I.G. documentary Biggie: I’ve Got a Story to Tell on March 1, and the Eric Andre hidden camera film Bad Trip on March 26. March 1 will also see the arrival of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
