New on Amazon Prime Video: All the Movies and TV Coming in January

According to Amazon, Christmas Day is the most popular day of the year for streaming movies on Prime Video, with viewers taking in 78 percent more hours on Christmas than on the average day in 2016. This is to say that, yes, there’s plenty of time (and opportunity) for streaming in this remaining month of 2017. But for you forward thinkers who are already mapping out your 2018 viewing priorities, here are the highlights of Amazon’s January slate.

TV devotees are going to find plenty to like about Amazon’s incoming programming, and likely some to love, as well. One particularly exciting addition is the debut of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, a star-studded sci-fi anthology series based on the works of the eponymous author. The Amazon original, which “explores humanity in set from 5 to 5000 years in the future and questions what it means to be human in unique and fantastical worlds,” per Amazon’s synopsis, starts streaming on Jan. 12—watch a trailer for the series here. Other incoming Amazon originals include part two of the second season of family-fantasy series Just Add Magic (Jan. 19) and The 2018 Rose Parade Hosted by Cord & Tish, a Funny or Die special starring Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon as 2018 Rose Parade hosts Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan, respectively (11 a.m. EST on Jan. 1). And as for licensed TV series, January brings about the 10th season of beloved BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who (Jan. 1), which will be Peter Capaldi’s last as the titular doctor, followed by the sixth season of NBC’s popular fantasy-drama series Grimm (Jan. 6).

By way of feature films, Amazon has a handful of gems on the way, led by the likes of David Fincher’s acclaimed Ted Cruz biopic Zodiac, Quentin Tarantino’s gritty feature debut Reservoir Dogs, Ridley Scott’s feminist road film Thelma & Louise, Birdman and The Revenant director Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s 2006 drama Babel, Darren Aronofsky’s chilling drug addiction drama Requiem for a Dream, David Lowery’s supernatural Sundance sensation A Ghost Story, and Capote, which earned the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman his one and only Oscar.
