Everything Coming To And Leaving Netflix In December, Including ‘Bird Box,’ ‘Roma,’ And ‘Infinity War’

Marvel Studios/Disney

December’s almost arrived, and while you’re zoning out in holiday mode and spending all that time with family, you might appreciate the distractions that binge watching has to offer. And along with tons of bonuses like a holiday special from the Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, Netflix is here with a full lineup of new originals and licensed content to oblige any whim for lovers of all genres.

The streaming platform’s adding a wealth of films, shows, and returning favorites during the course of this month. We realize that it’s difficult to keep up with everything coming to (and leaving) Netflix each month, so here’s a rundown of what’s going down on the streaming platform this December.

ARRIVING

Bird Box (Netflix original film streaming 12/21)

After John Krasinski’s recently (and enormously) successful A Quiet Place captivated audiences with the gimmick of surviving while not speaking, the buzz around Netflix’s Bird Box (based upon Josh Malerman’s bestselling 2014 novel) has taken on a new layer beyond the ominous subject matter itself. Director Susanne Bier’s vision, as shown in this trailer, takes the sense of sight away from its protagonist, and much like the vibe of Stephen King’s Cell, all hell breaks loose as something causes anyone who can see to lose their minds in violent ways. Sandra Bullock plays a mother who must protect her children, and she does so while largely blindfolded as they flee the mayhem.

Roma (Netflix original film streaming 12/14)

Netflix is digging its heels into the impending awards season with this stunning black-and-white film, which is billed as the most personal project to date from Oscar-winning actor and writer Alfonso Cuarón. Roma follows a young domestic worker in Mexico City and functions as a love letter to the women who raised the director amid a scathing social hierarchy and the political turmoil of the 1970s. You’ll want to see what all the buzz is about once the Oscar chatter truly begins, so stream away unless you’re lucky enough to live near a limited theater screening.

Dumplin’ (Netflix film streaming 12/7)

Dumplin,’ a dramedy starring a Southern-fried Jennifer Aniston, aims to smash the unrealistic standards placed upon females not only in beauty pageants but elsewhere. The trailer grabbed attention for Aniston’s comedic take on a character whose voice oozes deep-fried grease while running a beauty pageant. She’s about two seconds away from a “bless your heart” yet truly loves her plus-sized daughter, Willowdean “Dumplin” Dickson (Danielle Macdonald), who decides to show the pageant world what they’re missing by excluding so many hopefuls. Dolly Parton contributes original music, and expect plenty of feather boas, fake nails, and teased-up hair.

Avengers: Infinity War (Marvel Studios film streaming 12/25)

Netflix recently announced that they’re gifting subscribers with the ultimate Thanos snap for Christmas, and while we await the fourth Avengers film that’s scheduled for next May, you can relive the genocidal mayhem all over again. While that Spider-Man scene (“Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good…”) certainly doesn’t get any easier to watch upon repeated viewings, with all that action and an unbeatable superhero lineup on hand, both hardcore and casual comic book fans will stream this installment again, regardless.
