Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Jack Frost nipping at your nose. But in lieu of Yuletide carols, maybe’ll give or receive an HBO NOW subscription this holiday season. If so, you’re definitely going to want to read the latest update of what’s coming to and leaving HBO’s stand-alone streaming service this December.

Things are about to get kinky on HBO NOW for the month of November. Fifty Shades of Grey arrives on HBO’s new streaming service on November 21, in both rated and unrated cuts. (My sources tell me the unrated version contains at least six additional shades of Grey!) Other new movies include the awesome spy pastiche Kingsman: The Secret Service, and Liam Neeson’s latest action vehicle, Run All Night.

Back in 2012, Disney and Netflix struck a deal that would allow all of Disney’s films — including Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars properties — to stream exclusively on Netflix Instant, starting on January 1, 2016. As that date approaches, many have speculated openly about the Star Wars films finally coming to Netflix. There were even rumors recently that Netflix was prepping their database for the Star Wars movies, though Netflix denied those reports. While they have yet to comment specifically on the existing six films in the Star Wars library, Netflix did confirm that, as of now, they do not have the rights to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but are currently in negotiations to bring that title to their streaming library.

Beasts of No Nation marks the streaming video giant’s first serious attempt to become a major player in the feature film world, the same way they’ve become a giant in the world of serialized TV. And what’s most surprising about that first serious attempt is the fact that Netflix made a movie that will probably not play very well on Netflix. Beasts practically demands to be seen in a movie theater, not just for its impressive cinematography and immersive sound design, but also because of its expansive runtime and harrowing subject matter — the plight of child soldiers in Africa.

The Batman movies have always been on the darker and grittier side, Bat-nipples not withstanding. A few minor edits and any of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films could have gone from a PG-13 to an R-rating. The Joker did slam a guy’s head down onto the point of a pencil, after all. But, while they’ve previously only flirted with a level of intensity only seen in R-rated films, Warner Bros. has reportedly given approval for an upcoming Batman movie to actually be rated R.
