6. The Brothers Sun: A New Series In Town
Directed by Kevin Tancharoen and Viet Nguyen, The Brothers Sun is a television series that has action, comedy, and drama. No doubt, it is one of the hilarious dramedies of January 2024.
This action/comedy series seems to celebrate Academy Award winner Michelle Yeoh‘s impressive 40-year career.
The streaming platform has high hopes for this show, and they are counting on Brad Fulchuck to make it their next big hit. Yeoh plays a mother who takes a responsibility to protect her family.
Let’s see what Yeoh can do in this exciting new role. The Brother’s Sun premieres Thursday, January 4, 2024, on Netflix.
5. Good Grief: A Beautiful Journey Of Two Lovers
Daniel Levy has made us fall in love with a complex character in “Schitt’s Creek.” Now, in his debut as a movie director and star, he’s taking us through the emotional journey of losing a spouse with his new movie, whose title itself speaks about grief.
The movie is set in Paris, which is one of the many reasons why Ruth Negga and Himesh Patel agreed to support their friend in this venture. Although the script has its share of secrets, it shows Levy’s commitment to sharing the limelight with his co-stars.
Despite the trailer giving away several plot points, we will still be glued to our sofas as the movie premieres on Netflix, with our phones on silent mode and our food delivered at the door so as not to be seen crying.
The Movie Premieres Friday, January 5 on Netflix and it is one of the heartfelt dramedies of January 2024.
4. The Book of Clarence
Director Jeymes Samuel, known for his work in the Western film genre, is now taking a satirical approach to biblical epics with his latest project, ‘The Book of Clarence.’
While the famous comedy ‘Life of Brian’ may come to mind, Samuel’s inspiration seems to be more drawn from epic films like ‘Ben Hur’ and ‘Spartacus.’
The movie features a star-studded cast, including David Oyelowo, Benedict Cumberbatch, Omar Sy, James McAvoy, and Alfre Woodard.
The Book of Clarence is coming in theaters on Friday, January 12, 2024.
