What’s Coming to Netflix This January

Holy Netflix, Batman! There are a ton of amazing movies in all genres — action, horror, comedy and documentary — hitting Netflix in January 2018. Good thing we’re not making New Year’s resolutions this year (celebrities say they’re just not the cool thing to do, anymore), because we’ll be busy Netflix and chilling to kick off 2018.

Here are all the films you’ll be able to watch throughout January.

Jan. 1

Batman, Batman & Robin, Batman Begins, Batman Forever & Batman Returns

We barely remember Michael Keaton, George Clooney and Val Kilmer as Batman. For us, Christian Bale will forever be the Dark Knight, but that doesn’t mean the other Batmans weren’t worthy. Watch all the Batmans with the kids and have them decide who’s the best.
