New on Amazon Prime Video: All the Movies and TV Coming in December (Updated)

Update: Amazon has added a few new titles to their December slate, including their original biographical drama Crown Heights and the first season of their original period drama The Last Post. See the updated list below.

Original Story: That winter chill in the air is all the incentive we pop-culture gluttons need to hunker down indoors and spend the holidays in front of the TV, stuffing our brains with entertainment. And Amazon’s December streaming slate, boasting a host of must-see movies and intriguing TV series, has us concerned about making it through this holiday season without turning our minds to mush. Oh well … it can’t be helped.

On the cinematic side of things, Amazon’s incoming programming is especially impressive. Among the highlights are a handful of classics: Francis Ford Coppola’s mind-bending Vietnam war drama Apocalypse Now, which we recently declared the greatest war movie of all time; James Cameron’s beloved, all-time box-office smash Titanic, soon to celebrate its 20th anniversary with a return to theaters; Jonathan Demme’s Oscar-winning horror classic Silence of the Lambs and its Ridley Scott-directed sequel Hannibal; Kathryn Bigelow’s cult 1991 crime thriller Point Break; and the first five Rocky films. Amazon is also adding some more recent acclaimed fare, with films like Martin Scorsese’s powerful, Oscar-nominated period drama Silence, Trey Edward Shults’ atypical horror film It Comes at Night (one of our favorite films and horror films of the year so far) and Dan Gilroy’s brilliant thriller Nightcrawler. Last but not least, Amazon Video is adding this year’s Boston Marathon bombing drama Stronger, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany.

For those of you who prefer the small screen, Amazon’s December slate has plenty to offer. The streamer’s original series Jean Claude Van Johnson debuts on Dec. 15—per Amazon, the show “stars Jean-Claude Van Damme playing ‘Jean-Claude Van Damme,’ a global martial arts & film sensation, also operating under the simple alias of ‘Johnson’ as the world’s best undercover private contractor. Retired for years, a chance encounter with a lost love brings him back to the game.” Another Amazon original, The Grand Tour, returns for a second season on Dec. 8—the unscripted series “stars Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, and follows the men rampaging around the world having unusual adventures, driving amazing cars, and engaging in a constant argument about which of them is the biggest idiot.” And on the day after Christmas, Amazon streams original special Pete the Cat: A Groovy New Year Holiday Special, which “follows the story of Pete the Cat and his search for a New Year’s Resolution. With the help of his family and friends, Pete sets out on a fun, musical ride to find one.”

Licensed shows coming to Amazon Channels next month include the debut seasons of Showtime single-motherhood comedy SMILF and BBC sci-fi drama Class, plus the third season of Starz hit Outlander, the second season of Steven Soderbergh’s Starz anthology series The Girlfriend Experience and the sixth season of MTV’s Teen Wolf. And for you NFL fans, Amazon will live-stream three installments of Thursday Night Football next month, with match-ups including Saints vs. Falcons (Dec. 7), Broncos vs. Colts (Dec. 14) and Steelers vs. Texans (Dec. 25).
