February has arrived, with Mr. and Mrs. Smith leading the charge into a fresh lineup of movies and shows poised to captivate audiences.

While anticipation builds for upcoming releases like This Is Me Now: A Love Story and The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live and the return of Halo and Tokyo Vice, it's clear that we are in for an exciting month filled with new and engaging content. Here are four premieres that are also looking good this month:

Camila Mendes as Ana and Archie Renaux as William in Upgraded

Ana Santos is an ambitious, career-driven art enthusiast who soon finds herself navigating the glitzy art world and stumbling upon an unforeseen romance. During her maiden work trip, she is unexpectedly upgraded to first class, leading to a chance encounter with the charming and influential Will, who mistakes her for her boss. But as this little white lie unravels, it jeopardizes her career goals and newfound relationship.

Upgraded stars and is produced by Camila Mendes, known for her role as Veronica Lodge in The CW hit series Riverdale. This new rom-com movie premieres on Prime Video on February 9, 2024.

Ben Mendelsohn as Christian Dior in The New Look

'The New Look' is a historical drama set against the backdrop of World War II, spanning from 1939 to 1945. Produced by Apple Studios and DB-AK Productions, the series chronicles the journeys of iconic fashion pioneers Christian Dior and Coco Chanel as they navigate the tumultuous era and revolutionize modern fashion.

Directed by Todd A. Kessler, known for his work on the award-winning legal thriller Damages, the 10-episode series was filmed exclusively in Paris, capturing the essence of the time. The first three episodes premiere on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, on Apple TV+.

Cover Art-Far North premiering on February 15, on Sundance Now and AMC+

The Sundance Now Original Series Far North premieres this month with two episodes scheduled to debut on Thursday, February 15, on Sundance Now and AMC+, followed by weekly releases on both platforms.

This six-episode drama unfolds the (mostly true) tale of a comically inept gang's attempt to smuggle half a billion dollars worth of meth to New Zealand, thwarted by a determined 70-year-old Māori diesel mechanic and his aqua-aerobics instructor wife.

Starring Temuera Morrison and Robyn Malcolm, the show follows the misadventures of the ordinary couple Ed and Heather, inadvertently entangled in the chaotic aftermath of a botched drug deal. Against the backdrop of the Far North, they face off against bumbling cops and reckless gangsters in a bid to disrupt the colossal drug operation unfolding in the Pacific.

Hiroyuki Sanada stars as Lord Yoshii Toranaga, who faces a fierce battle for survival against the Council of Regents in Shōgun. But when a mysterious European ship is found marooned in a nearby fishing village, its restless English pilot, John Blackthorne, portrayed by Cosmo Jarvis, comes bearing secrets that could help Toranaga tip the scales of power and devastate the formidable influence of Blackthorne’s enemies, the Jesuit priests.

FX's Shōgun is a 10-episode limited series based on James Clavell's best-selling Asian Saga series. Set in Japan in 1600, it follows a defining civil war. The series premieres on FX and Hulu on February 27, 2024.
