  • Movie fans, rejoice: There are tons of awesome new movies set to be added to Netflix’s content catalog next month.
  • Highlights include The Departed, Superbad, Catch Me If You Can, Goodfellas, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and several new Netflix originals.
  • Here, we’ll run through all 63 new movies coming to Netflix next month.

After a pretty weak month in November, Netflix closed out 2020 with a fantastic month in December — especially for movie lovers. On top of all the awesome films that Netflix licensed from other studios last month, there were also some outstanding new Netflix original movies like David Fincher’s MANK and the new George Clooney movie The Midnight Sky. After Netflix decided to raise its prices in November, December’s lineup was just the thing to remind subscribers of exactly what they’re paying for.

Thankfully, January 2021 is shaping up to be just as strong as December when it comes to new movies.

Netflix’s full January 2021 releases list is packed full of great content. We already went through all the new original Netflix movies and shows set to debut in January, and the star of the show is obviously Cobra Kai season 3. Netflix hasn’t confirmed an exact release date for the new season yet, but it already looks amazing in the season 3 trailer and Netflix has confirmed that it will definitely be released sometime next month. Now, however, it’s time to focus on movies.

As great as Netflix’s original series are, subscribers are always most excited to see all the new movies that arrive on Netflix each month. Thankfully, January 2021 doesn’t disappoint. There are a whopping 30 different movies set to arrive on Netflix on January 1st alone, including blockbuster hits like The Departed, Goodfellas, Superbad, Catch Me If You Can, and Sherlock Holmes. And don’t sleep on Blue Streak starring a still-somewhat-sane-at-the-time Martin Lawrence!
