Adam Sandler thriller Uncut Gems and everything else on Netflix this January

That’s right—the film that might just score Adam Sandler some Oscars attention comes to Netflix this January. Other highlights include a Jesus thriller, a Dracula do-over, an ice-skating horror, and a lovely nature documentary about the nocturnal world.

And be sure to keep scrolling to see everything else coming to Netflix this January.

Uncut Gems

Like Robert Pattinson in Good Time (one of the thrillers of the decade), Adam Sandler’s surprised critics and audiences with an A-grade performance in the Safdie brothers’ latest heart-stopper. Sandler plays a scummy jewel dealer stuck in the gutter with debt and with very little time to pay it off.

“It’s a performance as live-wire exciting as the one the Safdies got out of Robert Pattinson in Good Time. And the movie itself is exhilarating. Just bring a Xanax.” -AV CLUB

Uncut Gems streams from 31 January


What if God was one of us? Or Jesus, maybe? We’d probably assume he’s some high-level con-artist, right? Or is this miraculous man actually fooling us all? That’s the premise of this crime-mystery series starring Mehdi Dehbi (A Most Wanted Man), a seemingly divine entity with a worldwide following who’s being investigated by a sceptical CIA officer (Michelle Monaghan, Mission: Impossible – Fallout).

Messiah streams from 1 January


The superb Claes Bang (The Square) is the legendary bloodsucker in this fantasy-horror mini-series from the creators of Sherlock. Told over three episodes, this re-telling promises to explore The Count’s vulnerabilities while not holding back on the gore.

Dracula streams from 1 January

Spinning Out

Black Swan on ice? It might just be. Crawl star Kaya Scodelario leads this 10-episode series from Samantha Stratton following a single skater on the mend when a fall almost ends her career. Seeing an opportunity in pair skating, she teams up with a skilled bad-boy of the rink. But a closely-guarded secret threatens to destroy everything she’s worked towards.

Spinning Out streams from 1 January

Netflix's Night On Earth

Night On Earth

Continuing the excellent work of Planet Earth, this documentary series dives into the beauty of the nocturnal world and all its creatures.

Night On Earth streams from 29 January

Last Action Hero

The Arnold Schwarzenegger meta-blockbuster from 1993 turns the big-screen into an alternate dimension when an 11-year-old boy discovers a magic ticket that transports him to the ‘movie world’. There, he teams up with his on-screen hero (Arnie) and together, they face a bad-guy who becomes aware of the ‘real-world’ and looks to overthrow it.

Last Action Hero streams from 1 January
