Hulu brings the movies in January, including Brian Banks, a drama based on a true story starring Aldis Hodge and Greg Kinnear, Luce with Naomi Watts and Octavia Spencer, and the comedy Fighting with My Family with Florence Pugh and Dwayne Johnson.

Hulu launches the new original series Endlings, an intergalactic adventure with adolescent heroes, and the second season of its acclaimed comedy Shrill, and adds new seasons of the Showtime drama Homeland, comedies Lodge 49, Brockmire, and The Detour, and the complete series of the FX shows Justified with Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins, Damages with Glenn Close and Rose Byrne, and Rescue Me with Denis Leary.

Also coming in January are the documentary Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins and a new slate of older movies including William Friedkin’s The French Connection with Gene Hackman, Robert Altman’s M*A*S*H with Donald Sutherland and Elliot Gould, and Roman Polanski’s The Tenant.
