As 2021 winds down, Netflix has no shortage of entertainment just for you.

This November, the streaming platform will launch everything from musical dramas to a daring heist with the Rock.

Here are some highlights to look out for:

1. Red Notice

In the hunt for the world’s most wanted art thief, there is truly no telling what will happen.

This film is a daring heist that brings together an unlikely trio: the FBI’s top profiler (Dwayne Johnson) and two rival criminals (Ryan Reynolds) and (Gal Gadot).

Originally set to be released by Universal Pictures, Netflix acquired the distribution rights for the action comedy on Jul 8, 2019. It will debut on the platform on Nov 12.

2. Arcane

Set in the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the series will explore the origins of two iconic League of Legends (LoL) characters, Jinx (Ella Purnell) and Vi (Hailee Steinfeld) as a dark power brings on violence and chaos, which threatens to keep the sisters apart.

The show is structured into three distinct acts, each consisting of three episodes. The first act launches on Nov 6 and focuses on the beginnings of the two sisters. The subsequent acts will launch on Nov 13 and Nov 20.

3. Cowboy Bebop

A ragtag crew of bounty hunters chase down the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals, intent on saving the world for the right price.

An anime which won the world over with its offbeat sense of humour and vivid (often violent) intergalactic adventures, here is hoping the Netflix series adapts the original anime well to gain a new generation of fans.

The live-action series releases on Nov 19.

4. Dhamaka

Starring popular Bollywood star, Kartik Aaryan, this movie is a remake of the 2013 Korean thriller The Terror Live.

Aaryan plays a cynical ex-TV news anchor who gets an alarming call on his radio show and must make a choice between his future career or the humanist in him.

The cast also includes Mrunal Thakur, Amruta Subash, Vikas Kumar and Vishwajeet Pradhan.

The film releases on Nov 19.

5. Tick, Tick... Boom!

Rounding off the list is an autobiographical musical about Jonathan Larsen, the creator of the musical, Rent. This movie adaptation of Tick, Tick… Boom! stars Andrew Garfield and is directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

In the movie, Jonathan is an aspiring theatre composer who has a quarter-life crisis as he approaches 30 and does not feel close to his dream.

With Jonathan having already died in 1996, it will be a real treat to see this movie honour his legacy of not giving up despite the challenges of producing one of the longest-running shows on Broadway.

The show comes to the platform on Nov 19.
