Friends May Be Safe, but Netflix Is Losing Love Actually in January

And that's not even the worst of it

Sadie Gennis

It's always hard when Netflix announces the next slate of titles leaving its service, but the January reveal does come with the salve of knowing we'll at least have the holidays to get in our last-minute viewings.

Among those titles to watch before they're gone next month include the iconic holiday film Love Actually (Jan. 1) and the equally iconic, but far less festive Godfather trilogy (also Jan. 1). Some of the other notable films leaving the service on New Year's Day include How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, The Shining, The Princess Diaries and Face/Off, so you really do have a lot to get through before the films as disappear from your queue come in the coming weeks.

January will also be a hard month for vampire fans, since Netflix will no longer carry Blade, Blade II, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Interview with a Vampire and Queen of the Damned as of Jan. 1. They will still carry Van Helsing, but we doubt that's of much comfort to anyone.

And just as a reminder, no, Netflix is not losing Friends in January. So at least you can breathe easy regarding that.

Check out everything that is leaving Netflix in January below. (For the full list of Netflix January premieres, head here.)
