Netflix has taken to Twitter to announce 29 brand-new films coming to their streaming service in 2020.

Subscribers are in for a real treat this year. 

Last night at The Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais joked that, nowadays, the award ceremony could be dramatically shortened by announcing Netflix have won everything before congratulating them on their industry domination.

Oh, how we laughed.

However, there is a certain truth in his humour that can’t be ignored (part of why we all find the British comedian so funny). Looking at Netflix’s 2020 original film line-up, it seems that a fair few of our most anticipated films of the year are being produced by the streaming service.
