Everything coming to Netflix and Amazon Prime this December (and what to watch before it’s gone)

0

Sure, you haven’t even started to recover from the joy and terror of Thanksgiving yet, but it’s already time to look ahead to the winter holiday season — and streaming video services want you to know that they have your back. Netflix will finally release its much-trailered Bill Murray holiday special on December 4th, starting the month off on a festive note before letting the much-dreaded Adam Sandler flick The Ridiculous Six out into the world just one week later. More importantly, Oscar hopeful Tangerine will also be arriving on Netflix, giving the film an even broader platform for its groundbreaking awards campaign.

Amazon, on the other hand, will be launching the second season of its acclaimed seriesTransparent on December 12th, the same day it’s adding Christopher Nolan’s Interstellarto its ranks. Amazon Prime subscribers will also soon be able to check out Ava DuVernay’s Selma as well as The Gambler. (No, not the James Caan one. And not the Kenny Rogers ones, either.)

Every month also brings with it a number of movies that are disappearing, and in December Netflix is facing some pretty distressing departures. Christopher Nolan’sBatman Begins will be gone as of December 1st, as will All About Eve, Silence of the Lambs, and My Best Friend’s Wedding. Perhaps most devastating of all, however, will be the loss of both The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. Watch, my friends, and remember Jim Henson while you still can.
