Big Bug

It’s been close to a decade since his last feature The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet premiered, and so the Netflix folks aren’t wasting much time putting Jean-Pierre Jeunet‘s Big Bug out there in 2022. Written by Jeunet and Guillaume Laurant, this stars Elsa Zylberstein, Alban Lenoir, Isabelle Nanty and André Dussollier.

Gist: This unfolds in a quiet residential neighbourhood in 2050 and follows four people whose domestic robots take them hostage during a robot uprising. Locked together, a not-quite-so-blended family, an intrusive neighbour and her enterprising sex-robot are forced to put up with each other in an increasingly hysterical atmosphere.

Release Date/Prediction: Late in 2021 we learned that the Netflix folks pegged this with a release on the 11th of February – will this coincide with with a premiere at the Berlinale which begins the day before?
