Coming Soon to a Couch Near You — January 2021 Edition

Coming Soon to a Couch Near You — January 2021 Edition

If you’re anything like us, 2020 was a year of catching up on all the movies, shows and video games we missed. And although brushing up on the classics is always a fun ride, it’s even more fun in on the conversation on day one.

So while we wait on the fate of the world’s movie theaters where we can collectively laugh, cry and scream together mere inches apart like yesteryear, we’ve compiled a list of movies that are coming soon to a couch near you.

Too many to choose from? We’ve also got a few highlights, just for you.

But, you know, we learned a lot about ourselves in 2020. We learned a lot.

The Tax Collector 

David Ayer reteams with Shia Labeouf to return to the visceral street-level storytelling that Ayer does best. What starts out as a classic story of greed set against the backdrop of LA, quickly turns into a kill or be killed story anchored by Lebeuf’s bone-chilling performance.

He said this is not a drill. We laughed. No one else did. But we did.
