With a ton of content that’s new on Peacock in January, the streaming service has been off to a good start in 2024. But once January comes to an end, Peacock will be losing a number of high-profile movies, including Fast X. Some of these films will likely be on other streaming services before you know it. Regardless, Peacock subscribers deserve to get the most out of their money. That’s why we’ve selected the three movies leaving Peacock in January 2024 that you have to watch now.

This month’s picks include a Tom Cruise action flick, a heist film with an all-star cast, and a road trip romance movie that takes a few detours. But watch them while you can, as all three movies will be leaving Peacock on January 31.

Oblivion (2013)

Nine years prior to Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise and director Joseph Kosinski teamed up for the sci-fi action flick Oblivion. Due to an alien attack, the end of the world has already happened, and Jack Harper (Cruise) is left to pick up the pieces alongside his partner, Victoria Olsen (Andrea Riseborough). Through their combined efforts, Jack hopes to be able to finish his work on Earth and join a group of colonists in space.

However, Jack is troubled by dreams of a woman that he has never met. When Jack finally comes across the woman, Julia (Olga Kurylenko), he slowly realizes that the life he’s been living on Earth has been a lie. And Jack’s biggest battles lie ahead as he and Julia face a deadly enemy.

Ocean’s Eleven (2001)

There had been plenty of heist movies before Ocean’s Eleven, but few have had a bolder scheme than the one cooked up by Danny Ocean (George Clooney). After serving a stint in prison, Danny comes up with an audacious idea to rob three major casinos in one night. As an added bonus, it will be Danny’s revenge on Terry Benedict (Andy García), the owner of all three casinos, who just so happens to be dating Danny’s ex-wife, Tess Ocean (Julia Roberts).

To make this scheme work, Danny needs Robert “Rusty” Ryan (Brad Pitt), Linus Caldwell (Matt Damon), Frank Catton (Bernie Mac), Basher Tarr (Don Cheadle), Saul Bloom (Carl Reiner), and five other men to complete the job. But even with this crew of experts, Danny’s plan is still a long shot at best.

Sideways (2004)

Searchlight Pictures

Nearly 20 years before The Holdovers, director Alexander Payne made another movie about a pair of male misfits. Sideways follows two friends, Miles Raymond (Holdovers star Paul Giamatti) and Jack Cole (Thomas Haden Church), as they take a road trip through wine country while facing a crossroads in their lives. Jack is restless and on the verge of getting married while Miles’ lifetime of rejection is wearing him down. During their trip, the pair meet and romance Maya Randall (Virginia Madsen) and her friend, Stephanie (Sandra Oh).

At first, their newfound love connections go well, but both men have been telling lies to get closer to Maya and Stephanie. When the truth comes out, Miles and Jack’s indiscretions could prove to be disastrous for both of them.
