By Matt Fowler
It’s out with 2016 and in with the new year at Netflix, as the streaming giant’s January slate of originals is set to include the second season of Voltron: Legendary Defender, a reboot of classic sitcom One Day at a Time from its original creator Norman Lear, and a new adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events starring Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf.
As for classic movies, they’ve got Spielberg’s E.T., all four Christopher Reeve Superman films, The Shining, Braveheart, Boogie Nights, and more.
Titles and dates are for US only and subject to change.
Around the World in 80 Days (2004)
After Innocence (2005)
Bee Movie (2007)
- Boogie Nights (1997)
Paul Thomas Anderson’s second film, a loving ode to the old school San Fernando Valley porn industry, features Mark Wahlberg as a dishwasher and dreamer whose, um, “special asset” lands him a gig as an adult film star. Filled with classic 70s and songs and an amazing ensemble consisting of Julianne Moore, Burt Reynolds, John C. Reilly, and more, Boogie Nights is a splendid blend of absurdity and drama, featuring strong characters and wild moments.
Collateral Damage (2002)
El Dorado (1966)
- HALO Legends (2009)
Set in the Halo-verse, these seven anime films (split into eight parts) focus on Master Chief’s mysterious origins, the Spartans’ advanced combat capabilities, and the tense rivalry between Spartans and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs). Created in collaboration with some of the world’s leading animators from Japan, Halo Legends draws you into the center of humankind’s ongoing battle with the Covenant.

- Superman: The Movie (1978)
If DC’s latest cinematic spin on Superman is a bit too grim and brooding for your taste, check out 1978’s take featuring Christopher Reeve as a soaring and valiant version of the Man of Steel and Gene Hackman as a deliciously devilish Lex Luthor. The other three Reeve films will be available as well along with Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, starring Legends of Tomorrow’s Brandon Routh.
