Netflix has announced its upcoming slate of films for 2023, and viewers can expect sequels to established hits, and new movies from famed directors featuring some big stars.
Fans of Adam Sandler have plenty to anticipate, given that the actor will be seen in no less than three Netflix movies this year: animated comedy “Leo”, debuting on Nov. 2, in which Sandler voices a lizard who escapes from the schoolroom terrarium he’s called home for decades; the sequel “Murder Mystery 2”, which re-teams Sandler with Jennifer Aniston, who are now full-time private detectives who find themselves in the middle of an international abduction (premiering in the fall); and “Spaceman”, about an astronaut befriended by an ancient creature secretly living in his spaceship (also coming fall 2023).
