January is often the slowest month at the box office, and the same could be said for streaming as 2023 kicks off with a lower-profile collection of new additions to Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max and other platforms. The biggest debut of the month is the arrival of Mark Mylod’s “The Menu” on HBO Max. The horror comedy, starring Ralph Fiennes and Anya Taylor-Joy, performed strongly at the box office for an independent release after the pandemic (it cleared the $30 million mark domestically) and is expected to grow its HBO audience even more Max as the genre clashing tone is perfect for the age of streaming.
Elsewhere, Amazon Prime Video has a shiny new offering in the form of the Jennifer Lopez vehicle “Shotgun Wedding.” Paramount+ is hoping to make a splash by reviving the “Teen Wolf” franchise with “Teen Wolf: The Movie,” which brings back many of the original stars from the original MTV drama series. Netflix, meanwhile, is bringing Eddie Murphy and Jonah Hill together for the comedy You People. It might be a lower-profile month in streaming overall, but there’s definitely room for some big streaming breakouts to dominate the buzz.
