Every month Stan, Netflix Australia, Foxtel Now and Amazon Prime Video add new content, so we’ve picked a few highlights for December.

Australian film and TV legend John Jarratt has been notably absent on-screen as of late, but that’s because he’s been preparing for his role as pig hunter-turned-sadistic murderer Mick Taylor on Stan’s new original series Wolf Creek. The 6-part series tracks a group of tourists trying to outrun the criminal through the outback, and even amidst the suspense, there’s some stunning beautiful shots of rural Australia.

One-liners such as “Move over, Daddy’s driving” and “There’s gonna be a little bloody beauty” by Taylor are bound to enter Australian folklore.

It’s released on December 15.

You can watch the trailer below.

You haven’t seen Joel Edgerton like you will in Netflix’s new original series Bright. He plays an orc, but not The Lord of the Rings kind. There’s also fairies, elves and magic wands, but it’s definitely not a kid’s show.

It’s released on December 22.

You can watch the trailer below.

After release date delays, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are back for season 2 of The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime Video.

Filming the new season was a struggle through misfortune after misfortune — Hammond suffered a pretty horrific car crash and was airlifted to hospital with a broken knee, while May fell ill and was admitted to hospital with a virus.

It’s released on December 8.

You can watch the trailer below.
