What’s Coming to Amazon Prime Video in January 2022

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.
