January 1, 2017 doesn’t just mean the beginning of a new year. It also brings new movies and television shows to Netflix streaming. While it’s true that the selection of movies Netflix adds each month isn’t always as impressive as it once was, there are still some highlights each month. For January, the biggest highlight is the addition of the original Superman films, starring Christopher Reeve.

In 1978, Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie made audiences believe a man could fly and made film executives believe that audiences would flock to movies about comic book characters. Although the series got progressively worse as it moved on, Reeve’s performances defined the character for generations. In fact, after the final film – 1987’s Superman IV: The Quest For Peace, there wasn’t another Superman movie until Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns in 2006. All four movies, plus Returns, will be available to stream on Netflix on January 1.

Also coming to Netflix on January 1 is the Steven Spielberg classic E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Disney’s original The Parent Trap (1961), V For Vendetta (2005) and The Shining (1980).

For many, the most exciting addition to Netflix will be A Series of Unfortunate Events. In the series, Neil Patrick Harris plays Count Olaf, the role Jim Carrey played in the movie. The series is based on the Lemony Snicket novels, written by Daniel Handler, and is available to stream starting on January 13.
