Fatal Shot (December 7)

This new documentary series takes a deep look at that most telegenic of subjects: assassination. Using archival footage and expert interviews, each episode delves into the motives and methodology behind some of the most famous and shocking assassinations in history, from Archduke Franz Ferdinand to President John F. Kennedy. For true crime fans, this is unmissable.

And Just Like That… (December 9)

Picking up years after we last saw them, this long lead sequel series reunites us with 75% of the Sex and the City girl gang: Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte (Kristin Davis). Now in their 50s, the ladies are still the firmest of friends and still trying to navigate life’s difficulties, sexual and otherwise, with wit and style.

Love Me (December 26)

BINGE’s first Australian original drama series is a six-parter that follows three different members of the Mathieson family as they navigate the tricky shoals of love and life at various stages of the latter. Bojana Novakovic, Hugo Weaving, William Lodder, Bob Morley, Heather Mitchell, and Celia Pacquola co-star in this warm, observant, achingly human series.

Silence (December 4)

Get into the Christmas spirit with yet another grim meditation on the nature of faith and grace in the face of oppression from Master of Cinema Martin Scorsese. Silence sees Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver as two Jesuit priests who travel to 17th century Japan upon hearing that their mentor (Liam Neeson) has turned against God. Christianity was illegal in Japan at the time, leaving the two young missionaries in grave peril with only their piety to protect them. A quiet masterpiece that seems to have slipped out of the public consciousness, but deserves your time.

Godzilla vs. Kong (December 23)

When titans tussle! After three movies of set-up, Legendary’s monster mash up has come ‘round at last, allowing us mere mortals to finally watch a giant monkey and a giant lizard smack the living hell out of each other. There are mere mortals in the cast, too, including Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Julian Dennison, but they’re all largely surplus to requirements—we all know why we’re here.

Grease (December 24)

Spend Christmas at Rydell High with the T-Birds and Pink Ladies as the classic musical Grease comes to BINGE. We all know the plot, but for completeness’s sake: following a summer fling, nice girl Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and tough kid Danny (John Travolta) renegotiate their relationship in the crucible that is the high school social scene, complete with a simply ridiculous amount of singing and dancing. It’s an all-timer for a reason, packed with memorable tunes and on-point turns from the stacked cast.
