We’re almost there — a new year, a new beginning, and a new round of binge-worthy content. From the box office hit A Quiet Place to Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, to season two of The Punisher, there’s enough new material to keep you occupied throughout the winter woes.
There’s no shortage of Netflix original shows and films in the new year. So whether you want to peek into the mind of a criminal or watch a sinister plot unravel, we promise we won’t judge.
In the new Netflix animated show Carmen Sandiego (Jan. 18), we follow Carmen as she embarks on international capers.
Inspired by the life of the world’s leading female bodyguard, Jacquie Davis, the Netflix film Close (Jan. 18) will give you goosebumps. To protect an heiress (Canadian actress Sophie Nélisse) from highly trained kidnappers, a lone security expert must unravel a sinister plot — while trying to stay alive.
The film IO (Jan. 18) follows one of the last survivors on Earth as she races to cure her poisoned planet before the final shuttle to a distant space colony leaves her stranded.
Coming to Netflix in January (date TBA), Marvel’s The Punisher: Season 2 will be one to watch as Jon Bernthal (Frank Castle/The Punisher), Amber Rose Revah (Dinah Madani), Jason R. Moore (Curtis Hoyle) and Ben Barnes (Billy Russo/Jigsaw) are returning to reprise their roles.
Want to peek into the mind of a murderer? Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes gives a unique look inside the mind of the infamous serial killer with this cinematic portrait crafted from statements made by Ted Bundy. Brr… we’ve got goosebumps already.
You can’t go wrong with a Julia Roberts movie. My Best Friend’s Wedding (Jan. 1) is a cute rom-com to watch with your boo or BFF. Another one of her films, Mona Lisa Smile, is also coming in January. Speaking about BFFs, you should watch The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants with your squad.
Award Season Favorites
A Quiet Place (Jan. 2) is a 2018 thriller that you can’t (and shouldn’t) miss. Emily Blunt, who has a SAG nomination for her role in this film, gives a stellar performance alongside with her husband John Krasinski, who also directed the film.
Based on the true story of interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga), Loving (Jan. 1) is a tearjerker. Ruth was nominated for both a Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Actress.
Also, five of the Bring It On films are also going to available for your viewing starting Jan. 2.
For families, we suggest watching Disney/Pixar’s Incredibles 2, which will be available Jan. 30. Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp is another favorite you can watch with family. The film stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas and Hannah John-Kamen.
Until February, stay warm! ~ Marriska Fernandes
