Netflix is unleashing some of its biggest blockbusters of the year this month, with Zack Snyder's zombie actioner Army of the Dead one of the most anticipated 2021 releases. Dave Bautista leads a heist of a Las Vegas casino during an outbreak of the undead. There's no word yet on whether it will be four hours long or presented in Academy ratio for some reason.

Elsewhere, Amy Adams leads the long-delayed thriller The Woman in the Window and the most recent Marvel Cinematic Universe release — Spider-Man: Far From Home — has joined the streamer's catalogue. Can you believe it has been almost two years since we last heard the Marvel fanfare blasting through cinema speakers?

Other high-profile catalogue titles arriving this month include the classic noughties comedy School of Rock and the ludicrously entertaining Blumhouse thriller Ma, starring Octavia Spencer.

It's a busy month for the streamer, so here's what's on the way...
