After starting the year off strong with a trailer for all of 2021, Netflix has come out with its new summer slate as well as a sizzle trailer to go along with it.
While highlighting some films with previously announced release dates like Zack Snyder’s Army Of The Dead and Woman In The Window starring Amy Adams, the slate also features release dates and footage for some highly-anticipated films like Fatherhood starring Kevin Hart, which bows Father’s Day Weekend, and He’s All That, the She’s All That remake starring Cobra Kai‘s Tanner Buchanan.
The updated release slate also includes Good On Paper, which was just acquired by Netflix which is written and stars Iliza Shlesinger with Margaret Cho also on board. The streamer is also announcing the new documentary Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal and Greed, which tells the fascinating life story about the legendary TV painter.

And here are some of the other highlights of the films set to bow this summer:
AMERICA: THE MOTION PICTURE (June 30)
Director: Matt Thompson
In this wildly tongue-in-cheek animated revisionist history, a chainsaw-wielding George Washington assembles a team of rabble rousers — including beer-loving bro Sam Adams, famed scientist Thomas Edison, acclaimed horseman Paul Revere, and a very pissed off Geronimo — to defeat Benedict Arnold and King James in the American Revolution. Who will win? No one knows, but you can be sure of one thing: these are not your father’s Founding… uh, Fathers.
ARMY OF THE DEAD (May 21)
Director: Zack Snyder
Following a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, a group of mercenaries take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.
AWAKE (June 9)

Scientists race against the clock to find a cure for the unexplained insomnia before its fatal effects eliminate the human race. When Jill, a former soldier, discovers her young daughter may be the key to salvation, she must decide: protect her children at all costs or sacrifice everything to save the world.
