Suss Out The Best Of What’s Coming And Going On Netflix In December

Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, standing with his back turned to his Batsuit.

What’s that we’re hearing? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it sleigh bells and Christmas music galore? If you picked the latter, you’d be correct. Not only is December coming in hot (literally, why is it so hot already?) but so are a bunch of new shows and movies you need to check out on Netflix this month.

From belly achingly funny Santa flicks to sweet as rom-com classics and everything in between, here’s what’s coming and going on Netflix Australia this December.

Coming To Netflix

Highlights

The Dark Knight  | Tuesday 1 December

Ever since Batman Begins has been available to stream on Netflix in October, we’ve been patiently waiting for The Dark Knight to make a comeback as well. Well now the 2008 blockbuster is finally here, and you can binge Chris Nolan’s entire trilogy (The Dark Knight Rises is on Netflix, too). We know what we’ll be doing this weekend, hbu?

50 First Dates | Tuesday 1 December

If you missed out on the 2004 rom-com that is 50 First Dates and are looking for a cute, feel-good comedy to watch, give it a go. It’s one of Adam Sandler’s more watchable movies (it’s still silly but not like, Don’t Mess With The Zohan silly) and will have you simultaneously ‘aw’-ing and laughing, which is totally what we all need right now.

Spider-Man 2 | Tuesday 1 December

The OG early 2000 Peter Parker (aka Tobey Maguire) is finding his double life increasingly difficult in this second installment of the Spiderman series. When New York is put under siege by Oscorp, it’s up to Spider-Man to save the city he swore to protect as well as his loved ones. Another one to put on the binge list.

Spider-Man 3 | Tuesday 1 December

Yes, Spiderman 3 features the iconic emo version of Spiderman (aka Topher Grace as Venom) in what’s arguably the worst installment of any Spiderman series; Peter's Spider-Man suit turns black and takes control of him, not only giving Peter enhanced power but also bringing out the dark side of his personality. Are we going to watch it anyway? You betcha.

New York Minute | Tuesday 1 December

We all know the Olsen Twins are immortal at this point (we have theories) and what better way to celebrate their immortality than by watching the absolute classic that is New York Minute? Jane (Ashley) and Roxy Ryan (Mary-Kate) are teenage Long Island twins who find themselves on numerous misadventures when they trek into Manhattan on a school day; shenanigans and fun ensues. Put it on the list.
