Netflix's Tudum

Monday 27 September 2021

Last weekend, Netflix hosted its first ever fan event, 'Tudum'. Streaming live on YouTube, the 3 hour bonanza was jam-packed with exclusive content, show announcements, and appearances from its star-studded casting sheets.

The streaming giant announced 70 new films, series, and specials, and revealed brand new content from some of their upcoming projects with Framestore.

Red Notice

The event opened with a new trailer for heist film Red Notice, packed with star power thanks to its three leads - Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne Johnson, with VFX courtesy of Framestore. The exclusive clip features an impressive fight scene, and some razor-sharp quips. Read more about Framestore's work on Red Notice here.

The Sandman

Tudum also provided us with a first look at their adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman. The clip reveals the premise of the series, as an occult ritual is held in an attempt to capture Death (an Endless being), but instead captures Dream. Framestore were thrilled to deliver Dream's raven emissary, Matthew, voiced by Patton Oswalt.

Cowboy Bebop

Also revealed was the opening sequence for live action anime adaptation, Cowboy Bebop, which explores the adventures of a ragtag group of bounty hunters chasing down criminals across the solar system.

Don't Look Up

Another upcoming feature with more stars than the milky way, Don't Look Up features the likes of Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jonah Hill, as they attempt to save the world from an impending collision with a comet.
