Streaming Farewell: Acclaimed Films Exiting Netflix & 2023’s Streaming Gems
As 2024 approaches a collection of acclaimed films by directors such as Sofia Coppola, Luca Guadagnino, Yorgos Lanthimos, Spike Lee, Jordan Peele and Robert Rodriguez is scheduled to leave Netflix for U.S. viewers. These films span diverse genres encompassing comedies family-friendly stories, chilling horrors and thought-provoking social satires. The imminent departure has raised concerns among subscribers eager to watch these cinematic treasures before they disappear from the streaming platform.
Among the notable departures is Spike Lee’s ‘BlacKkKlansman’ a compelling blend of satire and police procedural that delves into the infiltration of the Ku Klux Klan. Jordan Peele’s groundbreaking horror film ‘Get Out’ masterfully intertwining social commentary with thrilling elements is also bidding farewell. Additionally, Robert Rodriguez’s unexpected foray into family films with ‘Spy Kids,’ revealing the adventures of children discovering their parents’ covert spy lives, marks another significant departure.
Yorgos Lanthimos’s unsettling drama exploring a heart surgeon’s unconventional relationship with a teenager is set to exit alongside a comedy starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as well as a Sofia Coppola project delving into the lives of affluent teen criminals. Luca Guadagnino’s poignant portrayal of a young man’s first love amidst the Italian countryside and the animated sequel to ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’ are also among the films leaving Netflix’s U.S. catalog.
While these esteemed films are leaving Netflix the landscape of streaming platforms remains vibrant with exceptional titles from 2023. Alexander Payne’s ‘The Holdovers,’ available on Peacock achieved nearly $20 million at the domestic box office. Greta Gerwig’s comedy sensation ‘Barbie,’ accessible on Max, emerged as 2023’s highest-grossing movie. Notable Oscar contenders like Netflix’s ‘Maestro,’ Max’s ‘Barbie’ and Prime Video’s ‘Saltburn’ are now available for streaming. Meanwhile, ‘The Super Mario Bros Movie’ and ‘Chicken Run Dawn of the Nugget’ continue entertaining audiences on Netflix. ‘Across the Spider-Verse,’ lauded by critics and amassing a staggering $690 million in global box office receipts stands tall among 2023’s cinematic highlights.
