Whats Coming to Prime Video in January 2022

The shift to a streaming-first business model has been rough for theater owners and a headache for Hollywood, but we aren’t talking about the people it is benefitting. Namely, all the men out there afraid to cry at the movies. 

There was a time when these guys had to stoically swallow the lumps in their throats if they wanted to see the latest distant dad-related emotional drama on opening weekend, but no more. For example, they will feel completely safe reaching for the tissues in the confines on their own homes when the George Clooney-directed, Ben Affleck-starring The Tender Bar drops on Prime Video on Jan. 7.

Adapted from the memoir by Pulitzer-winning journalist J. R. Moehringer, it tells the coming-of-age story of a little boy without a father who looks to his Long Island bar-owning uncle (Affleck) and his gaggle of shopworn patrons for patriarchal life lessons and manly hair ruffling. Sniff.

Watch it, and then text your dad.

Also on Prime this month: Well, I can’t tell you. See, one of my best, dumbest laughs of the last year—a year during which you’d best believe I needed all that laughs I could get—came from a tweet imploring me to watch the following trailer without looking up the name of the movie first:

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. It’s too early to say whether this movie will live up to its extremely stupid title or exceed the expectations it sets up. I actually think the trailer promises a pretty decent riff on the formula that made previous time travel romances (Somewhere in Time, The Time-Traveler’s Wife, About Time) audience favorites, the audience in question here being me. I’ll find out when the movie hits Prime Video Jan. 28.

Finally, another rather inauspicious direct-to-streaming premiere for a movie once planned for theatrical release: The fourth movie in the surprisingly sturdy Hotel Transylvania series of animated films. Sony sold the rights to Hotel Transylvania: Transformania (Jan. 14) to Amazon for around $100 million, which sounds like a lot until you consider that the first three films pulled in nearly $1.4 billion combined at the global box office. With film four the series has lost its director (Gennedy Tartakovsky) and star (Adam Sandler, replaced by a soundalike), but I don’t think my kids will notice.

Here’s everything else coming to the service to kick off the next year.
