Winter Movie Preview: 5 Films You Shouldn't Miss in January 2020


The New Year is (almost) here. After string of blockbuster hits like Avengers: Endgame and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in 2019, it’s time to turn the page to 2020.

There are a bunch of highly anticipated releases coming this year, including the Marvel films Black Widow and The Eternals (starring an absolutely shredded Kumail Nanjiani), Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey, Harrison Ford’s The Call of the Wild, Daniel Craig’s final James Bond film No Time to Die, and Christopher Nolan’s action epic Tenet. We’ll dig into those movies soon, but for now, we’re going to spotlight the movies you should make sure to see in January 2020.

From a crime comedy with Matthew McConaughey to a potentially Oscar-worthy performance from Adam Sandler and more, here are five movies to put on your watch list.

The Gentlemen – January 24

The Gentlemen / STX Films

Director Guy Ritchie is returning to the genre that made him famous with his new movie starring Matthew McConaughey. With a style in the same vein as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, his movie The Gentlemen stars McConaughey as Mickey Pearson, an American who has built up his own marijuana empire in London. When Pearson decides it’s time to sell his profitable business, a number of figures in the seedy London crime world step up to try and get it from him—some by force. The film stars McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Michelle Dockery, Henry Golding, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant.
