If you want a sneak peek of what you'll be binging in the next year, check out the lengthy list of titles Netflix just picked up at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
The festival is not over, so more will probably be added to the lineup, but the streaming service has been wearing its wallet on the outside, buying eight titles so far, Variety reports -- five documentaries and three features.
The most recent feature, as of Jan. 24, is "To the Bone," starring Lily Collins as a 20-year-old anorexic woman who tries to get the medical help she needs, with Keanu Reeves as her doctor; the supporting cast includes Carrie Preston, Lili Taylor, and Alex Sharp. The deal was estimated at $8 million, allowing the streaming site to show the movie around the world.
Netflix also picked up the opening night comedy-thriller "I Don't Feel At Home in This World Anymore," starring Melanie Lynskey as a disillusioned nursing assistant, and co-starring Elijah Wood. Netflix also landed "The Incredible Jessica James," with "The Daily Show" star Jessica Williams playing an aspiring playwright in New York City who struggles to get over a breakup. According to Deadline, the movie will be branded as a Netflix original film and launch globally this year to Netflix viewers in 190 countries.
In terms of documentaries, the streaming site won an intense bidding war for "Icarus,"Variety reports, a documentary examining the Russian doping scandal. The $5 million deal was said to be the biggest ever for a nonfiction film. Netflix plans to give "Icarus" an awards push and release it simultaneously on its streaming service. Netflix also won a bidding war for "Nobody Speak: Hulk Hogan, Gawker and Trials of a Free Press." The title tells you what that one is about, and it will surely be a big talking point when bingers get their hands on it. Netflix also picked up the environmental doc "Chasing Coral," among others.
Sundance continues until January 29, so you never know what might be next. But you can probably count on Netflix and chilling with a few of those titles in the coming months.
