Hulu will take you through February with a solid collection of classics and originals, and a whole host of flicks to get your movie night right on Valentine's Day. Read on for our picks of a few featured films coming to the platform, and the full list of modern hits and nostalgic gems now available to watch or coming soon. Happy streaming!

Antebellum - 2/5 - Streaming Debut

First-time feature film directors Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz look to achieve the same creepy heights as Jordan Peele did with "Get Out" and "Us," with their historically tinged mystery thriller. Janelle Monáe stars as a successful writer who soon finds herself plunged into a horrifying reality where she must confront her past, present and future.

Antebellum

Thriller / 2020

Successful author Veronica Henley is finishing a book tour before she returns home to her husband and daughter. But a shocking turn of events is about to upend Veronica's existence, plunging her into a horrifying reality that forces her to confront her past, present and future -- before it's too late.

Nomadland - 2/19 - Exclusive Premiere

After premiering earlier in the month on IMAX screens, the award-winning -- and likely Best Picture nominee -- "Nomadland" comes home. Director Chloe Zhao takes us on a journey about a woman (Francis McDormand) who lives her life on the road following the economic collapse of 2008. If our predictions are accurate, this will turn out to be a stellar year for Zhao, with "Nomadland" looking to be a prime contender for a host of Oscars, including Best Actress, Best Director and Best Picture. Then, later in the year, Zhao will dazzle us once again with her Marvel cosmic adventure "Eternals."

Nomadland

Drama / 2020 / R

A woman embarks on a journey through the American West after losing everything during the recession.

The United States vs. Billie Holiday - 2/26 - Original

"Nomadland" isn't the only award contender debuting on Hulu. After the pandemic forced Lee Daniels' musical biopic off of Paramount's film release schedule, Hulu stepped in to give it a streaming home. Singer/songwriter Andra Day transforms into legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday, who gets set up by her ex in an undercover sting operation by the Federal Bureau of Narcotics.

Throughout the month look for the streaming debuts of a few films from the past year, including the pre-pandemic hit "Sonic the Hedgehog" on the 18th. Trekkies will enjoy the entire O.G. lineup of "Star Trek" movies, including the highly praised "Wrath of Khan", and the sixth entry, "The Undiscovered Country," which features the late Christopher Plummer as Shakespeare-loving Klingon General Chang. Other gems to look for include empowering feminist musical comedy "9 to 5" (which we think is ripe for a series adaptation), alien invasion send-up "Mars Attacks!", hitman rom-com "Grosse Pointe Blank" -- all now streaming -- and Guillermo del Toro's 2017 Best Picture winner "The Shape of Water" on the 15th. Below is the full list of debuts.
