It feels like this year has only just started, but it's already time to start setting sights and plans for appointment watching in February. Hulu has announced the full set of content for next month--here's what you can expect to watch on Hulu in February 2021.

If you missed The Shape of Water back when it came out in 2017, there's no time like the present--starting on February 15--to catch director Guillermo del Toro's moving and out there love story between a humanoid amphibian creature and a mute cleaning woman who works in the high-security government laboratory housing it. The movie doesn't just have an unusual story working for it--the visuals, production design, and writing all fire on all cylinders throughout, making for a wild experience that will stay with you. Watching it will help you understand how it won four Oscars, but also have you wondering why it didn't net more. You can read our review here.

For something similarly potentially horrifying, the infamous Sonic the Hedgehog Movie lands on Hulu on February 18. Video-game movie adaptations are always a mixed bag, but it might change people's minds to give it a try if we just mention that, sincerely, this movie tries (and at times, kinda succeeds) at being something more grounded and even vulnerable. Yes, Sonic still goes fast. Yes, Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik is even more cartoony than the digital characters he interacts with. But if you miss out on the first movie, you'll be that much further behind for the upcoming sequel.

To split the difference between the above selections, maybe check out District 9 on February 1. Director Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi debut is a recasting of the apartheid era in South Africa--in the movie, aliens from another planet become refugees, and tensions come to a head when a human field operative contracts a mysterious virus that begins changing his DNA. For many reasons, the film's themes have become topical--but there's just enough fantasy that prevents the film from coming across as preachy. It's the rare action flick packed with explosions that also dabbles in worthy themes of unity and togetherness.

Take a look at the complete list of everything arriving on the platform next month below.
