The new Adam McKay comedy, Don't Look Up, which stars literally dozens of celebrities and is fronted by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, also hits streaming just in time for Christmas Eve. Plus, you can fill out your holiday season binge-watching by checking out new seasons of Cobra KaiEmily in Paris, Queer Eye, and The Witcher. You can also check out movies hitting streaming like the Korean hit Oldboy, the '90s neo-noir Wild Things, and the Final Destination series, and so much more.
