Arriving on Hulu in January 2017

Teresa Palmer and Benjamin Walker star in "The Choice."

The Nicholas Sparks romantic drama The Choice with Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer, the R-rated comedy Dirty Grandpa with Robert De Niro and Zac Efron, and the Michael Moore documentary Where to Invade Next debut on Hulu in January.

The second season of the Hulu original series The Path begins at the end of the month (it parses its episodes out on a weekly basis), and Hulu adds the eleventh season of the cable comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and all six seasons of the original run of the animated series The Powerpuff Girls.

Older titles coming to Hulu in January include the Oscar-winners The Piano and Leaving Las Vegas, the gangster classic The Untouchables, the action hits Lethal Weapon and Mission: Impossible, the comedies The Brady Bunch Movie and Trading Places and the R-rated animated feature South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, and the playful romantic comedy Amelie (2001) from France.

Leaving at the end of January are the Oscar-winners Sling Blade and Good Will Hunting, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love, and Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now and Apocalypse Now Redux (two takes on an iconic movie) and One from the Heart.

Here’s what arriving on the service in January, and what’s leaving. (Day-after network debut showings are in italics)
