Typically when we think of January its usually a beginning, January of 2019 is different however as we are going to be seeing the release of some major conclusions across several all our favorite entertainment. Below are some of our most anticipated releases for January of 2019 as well as full release schedules of what you can expect to kick off the new year.


The most anticipated movie for us at NIHF being released this month is M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass. Bringing the unexpected Unbreakable Trilogy to a dramatic close and with Bruce Willis, Sarah Paulson, James McAvoy and of course Samuel L Jackson as the titular Mr. Glass. We’re expecting an exciting and interesting subversion of what we typically see with the modern superhero movie.


Netflix is getting a lot of great content January. While we are getting the final season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released on January 19th and that may be the big(or small) one to watch out for if you had missed it in theaters and want context for the Avengers: End Game trailer. Unfortunately, we will be saying goodbye to beloved and critically acclaimed titles such as the Sharknado series.

Video Games

All of us here at NIHF were disappointed to see the closure of Telltale Games. January 15th we will have the final release in Telltale’s The Walking Dead. Telltale always made quality games so this release is bittersweet to most of us. It’ll be interesting to see where they leave it.
