There’s good news for Peacock subscribers in January. A very strong batch of movies has been added to Peacock’s streaming library, including a few films, like Fight Club, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Hell or High Water, which have never been on Peacock before. Those are great titles, and there are even more new movies on Peacock here.

One of the downsides of Peacock is that it doesn’t tend to hold on to its biggest movies for very long, so catch these while you can. Also, some titles may only be accessible on Peacock’s higher tiers. Keep reading for the updated list of the best movies on Peacock right now.

Can’t find anything you like on Peacock? Lucky for you, we’ve also curated guides to the best movies on Netflix, the best movies on Hulu, and the best movies on Amazon Prime Video.

Fight Club (1999)

20th Century Studios

If you don’t know the first two rules of Fight Club by now, we’re not going to repeat them again. 2024 will mark the 25th anniversary of David Fincher‘s subversive cult hit, which stars Edward Norton as the unnamed Narrator. While suffering through an unsatisfactory life, the Narrator meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), a charismatic man who is everything that the Narrator isn’t.

Together, the Narrator and Tyler form Fight Club, and they quickly attract several other disaffected and angry men including Robert Paulson (Meat Loaf), Angel Face (Jared Leto), and the Mechanic (The Iron Claw‘s Holt McCallany). The Narrator would have been satisfied with using Fight Club as an outlet for his rage and anger issues. Tyler, on the other hand, has much grander ambitions, as he transforms their little club into a cult-like movement called Project Mayhem.

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street.
Paramount

Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street is based on the true story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio), but the director just can’t help himself from making it a black comedy as well. Despite losing his brokerage job after the massive stock market crash in 1987, Belfort turns his fortunes around by successfully launching his own brokerage firm with his friend, Donnie Azoff (Jonah Hill).

Somewhere along the way, Belfort goes from skirting the letter of the law to outright illegal activities as he indulges in everything from drugs and alcohol to women. Belfort also lands a new wife, Naomi Lapaglia (Barbie‘s Margot Robbie). But even the so-called Wolf of Wall Street can’t maintain this lifestyle forever. Whatever goes up must come down.

Hell or High Water (2016)

The cast of Hell or High Water.
Lionsgate

Before he started creating or co-creating nearly every non-Star Trek series on Paramount+, Taylor Sheridan wrote the script for Hell or High Water, a modern western and crime drama that features Chris Pine and Ben Foster as Toby and Tanner Howard. The Tanner brothers’ ranch is in dire straights, so they’ve taken to robbing banks to escape their financial peril.

Regardless of their successful crimes, Tanner proves to be too reckless for his brother to control. Meanwhile, Texas Rangers Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges) and Alberto Parker (Gil Birmingham) start closing in on the brothers. And if the Rangers don’t get the Tanners, then a group of heavily armed Texans might beat them to the punch.

Both siblings are aware that someone has been kidnapping children in the area, but that foreknowledge doesn’t save Finny when The Grabber (Ethan Hawke) comes for him.

The Exorcist: Believer (2023)

Two possessed children look up in "The Exorcist: Believer."
Universal Pictures / Universal Pictures

Critics really didn’t take it easy on The Exorcist: Believer, but it’s a textbook case of a sequel that tells a familiar story with links to the first film in the franchise. Leslie Odom Jr. stars as Victor Fielding, a father whose daughter, Angela (Lidya Jewett), and her friend, Katherine West (Olivia O’Neill), go missing in the woods. When the girls return, both Angela and Katherine show signs of demonic possession.

Victor and Katherine’s parents, Miranda (Jennifer Nettles) and Tony West (Norbert Leo Butz), are at a complete loss for how to help their children. That’s why Victor turns to Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn), the mother of Regan MacNeil (Linda Blair), who was possessed in The Exorcist. Chris has since become a best-selling author and an expert in exorcisms. But even Chris is overmatched by the twin possessions.

Requiem for a Dream (2000)

Jennifer Connelly in Requiem for a Dream.
Artisan Entertainment

The demons of Requiem for a Dream aren’t supernatural in nature, but they leave devastating carnage in their wake in Darren Aronofsky’s adaptation of Hubert Selby Jr.’s novel. This is a story about addiction and the heavy toll it takes on Sara Goldfarb (Ellen Burstyn), her son, Harry Goldfarb (Jared Leto, way before he played the Joker), his girlfriend, Marion Silver (Jennifer Connelly), and their friend, Tyrone C. Love (Marlon Wayans).

Addiction to amphetamines is a new experience for Sara, but her son and his circle of friends have been addicted to heroin for years. This film pulls no punches when the price of their drug habit finally comes due for all four lead characters. Requiem for a Dream may be a psychological drama, but it’s also a horror story in its own way. There’s no happiness to be found here.

Rotten Tomatoes: 78%
Genre: Drama
Stars: Jared Leto, Ellen Burstyn, Jennifer Connelly, Marlon Wayans, Christopher McDonald
Director: Darren Aronofsky
Rating: R
Runtime: 101 minutes

Five Nights At Freddy’s (2023)

Three of the critters from Five Nights at Freddy's.

Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy may not have been household names in the ’80s, but these murderous animatronic creations will made a killing in their big-screen debut in Five Nights At Freddy’s.

As in the hit video games that spawned the movie, Freddy and his fiendish friends are dormant for most of the day. It’s only after midnight that they become unholy murder machines. That’s bad news for Mike Schmidt (Josh Hutcherson), the guy who was just hired as a security guard for the overnight shift. Suddenly, a cakewalk job becomes dangerous not only for Mike but also for his little sister, Abby (Piper Rubio). The animatronics only want Mike dead. For Abby, they have something else in mind…

3:10 to Yuma (2007)

Christian Bale and Russell Crowe in 3:10 To Yuma.
Lionsgate

3:10 to Yuma is the second adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s story, and director James Mangold was up to the task of updating this Western tale. In 1884, a rancher named Dan Evans (Christian Bale) has the misfortune of being robbed of his horses by Ben Wade (Russell Crowe). And although Ben spares Dan’s life, he’s left him desperate for money.

Raymond Chandler’s hard-boiled private detective, Philip Marlowe, isn’t exactly in vogue anymore. But the classics never truly go out of style. In the 1975 adaptation of Chandler’s Farewell, My Lovely, Robert Mitchum steps into the role of Philip as he finds himself in the midst of two difficult cases that may be related.

In the first, a bank robber named Moose Malloy (Jack O’Halloran) hires Phillip to find his missing girlfriend, Velma (Charlotte Rampling). And in the second case, Phillip is helpless to prevent the murder of his client, Lindsay Marriott (John O’Leary). But not even police intimidation can keep Phillip from finding answers and solving the mystery.
