Coming to a screen near you: 20 new movies to stream this winter

This winter, only a few theaters will be open — but there’ll still be plenty of movies.

With many cinemas still sitting dark because of the COVID-19 pandemic, moviegoing remains mostly a memory — and that’s unlikely to change in early 2021. Warner Bros. will be putting all its movies into theaters this year, though they’ll also be available on HBO Max for the first month of release. Paramount gave its long-awaited Eddie Murphy sequel, “Coming 2 America,” to Amazon’s Prime Video platform, while Apple TV+ snapped up the crime drama “Cherry,” starring Marvel icon Tom Holland. Meanwhile, Netflix will continue its usual outpouring of content with a schedule of some 70 movies for the year.

If there’s a trend emerging this winter, it’s Black-led titles. Rising star John David Washington (“Tenet”) will appear opposite Zendaya in the romance “Malcolm Marie.” Lee Daniels (“Precious”) directs Grammy-nominated singer Andra Day in “The United States vs. Billie Holiday.” There’s early Oscar buzz around Daniel Kaluuya’s performance as Chicago Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton in “Judas and the Black Messiah.” And don’t forget “Coming 2 America.”

Here are 20 big streaming releases coming this winter to subscription services like Netflix, digital platforms such as iTunes and cable video on demand.
