Arriving on Hulu in December 2016

Jeffrey Donovan and KaDee Strickland in Hulu's 'Shut Eye'

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) with Tina Fey and Margot Robbie and Zoolander 2 (2016) with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson debut on Hulu in December. The superhero movie ranks are filled out with Spiderman 3 (2007) and Iron Man (2008), the screen version of Kerouac’s On the Road (2013) debuts, and from the arthouse circuit come the Oscar-nominated Anomalisa (2015) and the prize-winning Romanian drama Beyond the Hills (2013).

Hulu launches a new original series: Shut Eye starring Jeffrey Donovan as a con man who runs a chain of fortune-telling storefronts and winds up with genuine psychic visions. Isabella Rossellini co-stars as the ruthless matriarch of the ruling clan of the criminal world. Unlike other Hulu originals, this season debuts all at once.

Older titles coming to Hulu in December include Oscar winners Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), No Country for Old Men (2007) and Rain Man (1988), Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Pulp Fiction (1994), John Frankenheimer’s modern action classic Ronin (1998), and Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby (1968).

Leaving at the end of the month are Quentin Tarantino Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003) and Kill Bill: Volume 2 (2004), the World War II thriller Valkyrie (2008), and the classic Chinatown (1974).
