Start the new year with the most anticipated feature films.

It's the new year, which means it's time to mark your calendars with the most anticipated movies coming to Netflix this winter.

1. Lift

Release Date: January 12

Lift promises to be nothing more than a typical representative of the genre, giving the audience a funny action-comedy that we've all been missing. The plot revolves around a team of thieves that has to steal $100 million. The main catch is that they have to accomplish their plan while flying on a commercial airliner.

The movie was originally scheduled to be released in the summer of 2023, but the premiere date was eventually pushed back to January 2024.

2. Orion and the Dark

Release Date: February 2

Orion and the Dark is not only an anticipated new Netflix release, but also one of the most important animated films of 2024. The project is intriguing because the script for the movie was written by none other than Charlie Kaufman, a master of surreal and bizarre plots.

Orion is afraid of everything in the world, but his main fear is darkness. One day, the physical embodiment of this fear appears in his room: the Dark invites the young man on an amazing journey to see the world and overcome his phobias.

3. The Kitchen

Release Date: January 19

In the dystopian London of the 2040s, the gap between rich and poor has widened. Social housing has disappeared and the poor live in slums like the Kitchen.

Former robber Izi is trying to raise money for medicine for his sick son, and in order to do so, he must participate in a big robbery. At the same time, a young boy named Benji is searching for a family, and the fates of the two are going to unexpectedly intertwine.

4. Good Grief

Release Date: January 5

The new movie from Schitt's Creek star Daniel Levy will tell the story of Marc and Oliver. Marc is a children's book illustrator who is overshadowed by his husband Oliver, who has become a star thanks to his talent as a writer. Everything changes when Oliver suddenly dies at a Christmas party and Marc decides to go to Paris with two friends to try to live through the tragedy.

The movie will explore topics of dealing with grief, the power of friendship and the importance of being able to forgive.

5. Society of the Snow

Release Date: January 4

Based on real events, Juan Antonio Bayona's movie tells the story of the Uruguayan plane crash. In 1972, a plane carrying a rugby team crashed in the Andes. The surviving passengers had to endure 72 agonizing days of bad weather, no food and water. Despite the cold, hunger and pain, the group managed to survive.

The director based the movie on Pablo Vierci's novel of the same name, which retells the story of Flight 571. Much of the story is told from the point of view of Numa Turcatti, a member of the Uruguayan rugby team.
