Hulu: What's New in December 2017

Poster for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 5

Hello, December! Are you here already? Usher out 2017 with a sweet selection of new titles from our American friends at Hulu. There are season premieres, movies that are still fabulous after 20+ years and families going head to head for Christmas decoration glory. Jump in!

In a world where super-villains are running rampant, you know the answer is an elite covert team. Enter Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In case you’re wondering, that’s Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division – but we can all agree S.H.I.E.L.D. sounds way more kickass. The world is a topsy-turvy place right now so let the Season 5 premiere soothe your soul watching good triumph (mostly) over evil.

Want more Marvel? Legion is based on the comic written by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz and tells the story of troubled young man, David Haller. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, Haller (played by British actor, Dan Stevens) has spent his life in and out of psychiatric hospitals. A strange encounter with fellow patient, Syd (Rachel Keller), reveals that Haller has special powers that are set to change his life. Critics are raving, calling it trippy, visually dazzling and a reality-bending thriller. Also keep an eye out for Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation). Her work as character, Lenny, is apparently terrific.

British series Trust Me comes to Hulu this month. The medical drama tells the story of Cath, a hardworking nurse who loses her job for whistle-blowing. Left in a desperate position and with a young daughter to care for, Cath finds herself making drastic choices in order to survive. Starring Jodie Whittaker as Cath, there has been speculation as to whether there will be a Season 2 given that Whittaker was recently named the very first Doctor Who.

Feeling festive? Then indulge in The Great Christmas Light Fight: Season 5 Premiere. Each week, four families compete to transform their homes into magical Christmas wonderlands but they only have 21 days to do it. If this seems like an incredibly long time, consider that committed Christmas decorators spend ALL YEAR planning their elaborate Yuletide displays. Think co-ordinated sound and light shows, giant inflatable Santas and kilometres of extension cords - and all without causing an electrical fire. Give in to the magic and mayhem!

Want less magic and more mayhem? Then you simply cannot go past Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Kill Bill: Volume 2. Starring Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction) as The Bride, an assassin with murderous revenge on her mind, this is the ultra-violent fare we’ve come to expect from writer and director, Quentin Tarantino. In typical Tarantino style, the unbelievable violence is somehow made more palatable with the addition of a crackingly well written and funny script, brilliant casting and a visual experience that never fails to make the critics swoon. Also, Thurman’s Bride is the ultimate badass.

Get nostalgic with Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Director Frank Oz’s 1988 comedy sees a couple of con men – the hilarious pairing of Steve Martin (It’s Complicated) and Michael Caine (Interstellar) – whose rivalry sees them competing to be the first to swindle a young heiress out of $50,000. This is vintage Hollywood comedy. Catch it from December 1.
