Here Are All The New Things On Netflix In January 2019

You have so many great movies to watch in January.

January tends to be generally terrible: The holidays have ended; the temperature has dropped; and cultural institutions choose to not debut anything good in fear that we’ll all forget about the January releases come awards season and year-end list time. As such, Netflix doesn’t have a strong lineup of Originals in January 2019. But, but! Netflix does add a ton of great movies this month to make up for it.

On Jan. 1 alone, Netflix adds “Black Hawk Down,” “Hell or High Water,” the “Indiana Jones” series (even “Crystal Skull”!), “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Pulp Fiction,” “Swingers,” “The Addams Family,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Departed,” along with many other movies. “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” joins Netflix the very next day.

Throughout the month, Netflix adds recent blockbusters like “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and “The Incredibles 2.”

So even though the Originals don’t stand out in January, you still have plenty to watch.

As always, a few great things leave the service as well, most notable being “The Godfather” series, which joined the service at the beginning of 2018. A few others include “Marie Antoinette,” “The Shining” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.”

Check out the full list of arrivals and departures below.
