New on Netflix Australia: Top Picks of December 2023
There’s been considerable hype surrounding Bradley Cooper’s directorial follow-up to the monstrously successful A Star Is Born remake in which he co-starred alongside Lady Gaga. But we have to admit — prior to Netflix unveiling of the first Maestro trailer, we weren’t exactly hanging on the edge of our seats for a Leonard Bernstein biopic.
Arriving to select theatres and Netflix to close out the year, this “love letter” to the life and art of the legendary composer + conductor (Cooper) viewed through the lens of his 25-year marriage to Felicia Montealegre (Carey Mulligan) promises to be a humanising portrait of a larger-than-life cultural icon.
Mulligan and Cooper have been joined by Maya Hawke as the couple’s daughter Jamie, and Sam Nivola as their son Alexander; in addition to the likes of Matt Bomer, Sarah Silverman, Gideon Glick, Gabe Fazio, Eric Parkinson, William Hill, Nick Blaemire, Oscar Pavlo, Tim Rogan, and Mallory Portnoy.
On top of directing, starring, and co-writing in collaboration with Josh Singer, Bradley Cooper has produced Maestro alongside Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and more; the cinematography has been achieved by Matthew Libatique (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swans, A Star Is Born).
Rebel Moon: Part One — A Child of Fire
When a colony on the edge of the galaxy finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee), they dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past named Kora (Sofia Boutella) to seek out warriors from neighbouring planets to help them take a stand.
What began as Zack Snyder’s pitch for a Star Wars movie has since evolved to something with a life of its own. Rebel Moon: Part One — A Child of Fire is now a full-scale space opera heavily inspired by Star Wars; as well as the works of the legendary Akira Kurosawa and Heavy Metal magazines.
Boutella and Fee is joined by Djimon Hounsou, Charlie Hunnam, Michiel Huisman, Staz Nair, Doona Bae, Ray Fisher, Cleopatra Coleman, as well as the voice of Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Rebel Moon — Part Two: The Scargiver is scheduled to release early next year (April 19th, 2024).
The Crown Season 6 (Part 2)
The dramatised chronology of Queen Elizabeth II’s (Imelda Staunton) reign from the death of her father, King George VI, all the way through to the early 21st century is coming to an end. But not before covering a few key events.
Set between 1997 and the early 2000s, story arcs to be explored will reportedly range from the aforementioned wedding of Prince Charles (Dominic West) and Camilla Parker Bowles (Olivia Williams); entering the “Willennium” with the early relationship of young Prince William (Rufus Kampa) and future wife Kate Middleton (Meg Bellamy); to the premiership of Tony Blair (Bertie Carvel).
Rather controversially, the unfortunate passing of Diana, Princess of Wales (Elizabeth Debicki) in Paris, is also a major focus throughout the finale.
How Are Things Looking For Netflix Australia In December 2023?
We’ve been getting quite a bit from Netflix Australia as of late, and December seems to be carrying the momentum.
The streaming giant had what was arguably its biggest month of the year in September with major flagship releases like Netflix’s One Piece adaptation and the Shane Gillis special.
Last month, it dropped everything from The Crown season 6 (Part 1), to David Fincher’s long-awaited The Killer adaptation starring Michael Fassbender, as well as another much-hyped stand-up special (this time with viral sensation Matt Rife).
Now, the crimson N is finishing 2023 strong with both original and licensed content, i.e. Bradley Cooper’s Maestro, Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon: Part One — A Child of Fire, The Crown season 6 (Part 2) | Everything Everywhere All At Once, Top Gun: Maverick, and Fast X.
Suffice it to say, there’s plenty on the streaming service to help justify that Netflix subscription price. Especially now that the company has started cracking down on password sharing.
