New Movie: January 28 Release Schedule and Where to Watch

As Sundance closes the curtain and a packed February in cinemas, many new movies will begin to dominate January.

Featured products are independently selected by our editorial team and we may earn a commission on purchases made from our links.

When the theaters began to show signs of life and streaming and VOD options are still expensive, there are more movies (and platforms to watch them) than ever to choose from, and IndieWire is here to help you do that every week.

With Sundance working through its second weekend and a host of award contenders getting ready to (finally) hit theaters, the last weekend of January seems a bit odd. January! This week saw the premiere of everything from the Charli XCX documentary about the pandemic, the latest provocation from Michel Franco and the SXSW winner in the aftermath of a shooting at school. There may not be something for everyone this batch, but there is something for many specific interests. Again, January!

Each movie is now available at a movie theater near you or in the comfort of your own home (or, in some cases, both, convenience of all). Browse through your options below.

Week of January 24 – January 30

New movie in theaters

“Charli XCX: Alone Together” (directed by Bradley Bell and Pablo Jones-Soler)
Distributor: Greenwich Entertainment
Where to find it: Choose the cinema, plus various VOD and digital options

At a time when everything on our screens flows into one stream of content and even the big Oscars movies feel like they’re images of our collective imaginations, it’s hard to understand that “Alone Together” will have a life like anything else more than a trinket of pandemic ephemeral. Charli’s Angels will certainly appreciate it, but this hard diamond of a movie might be a bit too small and self-contained for many audiences to notice. That would be a pity, if only because the documentary ultimately serves as a quick portrait of how some online communities have turned fandom into a two-way street; The Angels feel connected to each other through Charli, and Charli feels connected to himself through them.

It was relaxing for them, but utterly nerve-wracking for anyone who had seen Franco’s last film, “New Order,” a poignantly bloody film in which an upper-class wedding It turned into a bloodbath, and things took a turn for the worse from there.

Megan Park, an actress and singer who has slowly built her directorial talent with multiple music videos (including Billie Eilish’s “Watch” and a pair of short films, makes a huge leap with “The Fallout,” taking on a lead role takes on the emotion of her first feature. It works. Vada (Jenna Ortega) is out of the classroom when the horrors begin, unexpectedly trapped in the bathroom with Instagram-famous Mia (Maddie Ziegler) and ultimately bloody Quinton (Niles Fitch). Park’s handling of the tragedy is impressive, and when gunshots ring out in the distance – Vada and Mia immediately realize what’s going on forming one of the film’s most harrowing moments – the girls. girls, and later Quinton, vying for safety they knew was not guaranteed.
