Netflix keeps releasing movies despite cast strike
The SAG-AFTRA strike, preventing actors from promoting projects, began on July 14, causing several production companies to delay their releases. This includes Sony postponing Kraven the Hunter and Disney postponing Searchlight Pictures’ Poor Things, both studios considering doing the same for other future releases. It is reported that Warner Bros. is also considering postponing Dune: Part Two, which will be the biggest blockbuster of the fall. Despite all the delays and uncertainty, Netflix is still releasing movies even if the stars can’t promote them, though it doesn’t seem like this is affecting their performances.
Netflix recently released They Cloned Tyrone, starring John Boyega and Jamie Foxx, Ellie Kemper’s romantic comedy Beginner Happiness, and Gal Gadot’s spy thriller Heart of Stone. Upcoming releases include Adam Sandler’s comedy You Didn’t Get Invited to My Bat Mitzvah on August 25 and Spy Kids: Armageddon on September 22. Reptile, which will premiere at the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival and then be available to watch on October 6, can now be added to this list of upcoming Netflix movies.
