With Christmas officially behind us (boo!), it’s time to ring in the new year the only way we know how – with the latest Netflix additions! The streaming service’s January offerings are as good as ever, so get ready to curl up and finish off those Christmas snacks in front of your trusty laptop screen… As always, don’t forget to check out the TV update.

1st January – He Named Me Malala
The 2015 documentary is *finally* on Netflix. After the Taliban tries to kill her for speaking out on behalf of girls' education, Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai emerges as a leading advocate for children's rights and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

5th January – The BFG
Missed Steven Spielberg’s take on the Roald Dahl classic in 2016? No worries, it’s headed to Netflix this January. 10-year-old Sophie makes pals with a giant, who happens to be – you guessed it! – big and friendly. Adventure inevitably ensues.

11th January – Good Time
Thought Robert Pattinson peaked with Twilight? Well you were probably right, but this film is still decent. After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine "Connie" Nikas (RPattz) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city's underworld in an increasingly desperate - and dangerous - attempt to get brother Nick out of jail.

12th January – Pride
This 2014 film was a hit – and for a good reason. Realising that they share common foes in Margaret Thatcher, the police and the conservative press, London-based gays and lesbians lend their support to striking coal miners in 1984 Wales.

12th January – Hostel Part II
It’s more of the same in the second film of the Hostel series. Beth, Lorna and Whitney decide to take a weekend excursion in Italy. Lured from their intended destination by a beautiful acquaintance, the women anticipate a stay at a luxurious spa. Instead, they become pawns in a grisly game designed to entertain wealthy deviants from around the world.
