What to Watch and Listen to This Week: Taylor Swift, Cody Johnson, and ‘Reacher’ Return

This week, there’s a diverse array of entertainment options making their way to your screens. From the second season of Prime Video’s “Reacher” to the stop-motion animation film “Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget” and much more, here’s what you should consider streaming.

New Movies to Stream

  • On Swift’s birthday, the highly anticipated “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” concert film arrives in homes via premium on-demand. While the exact rental cost has not been disclosed, tickets for the movie were priced at $19.89, a nod to Swift’s album “1989.” This extended version of the film, now running over three hours, includes three additional songs: “Wildest Dreams,” “Long Live,” and “The Archer.” AP Music Writer Maria Sherman lauds the experience, describing it as an almost identical replica of Swift’s blockbuster concert performance.

  • More than twenty years after the original release of “Chicken Run,” Aardman Animations introduces the sequel, “Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget.” This new installment, premiering on Netflix on Friday, December 15, features an entirely new voice cast, including Thandiwe Newton, Bella Ramsey, and Zachary Levi. The film continues the adventures of Ginger, who, having escaped Tweedy Farm, must once again lead her flock to freedom.

  • In Rodrigo Moreno’s “The Delinquents,” Morán (played by Daniel Eliás) hatches a clever plan to steal from the bank where he works. He intends to take only the equivalent of 25 years’ worth of his salary, hide the money with a colleague (Esteban Bigliardi), confess to the crime, and serve a three-year jail sentence before enjoying the rest of his life. Streaming on Mubi from Friday, December 15, Moreno transforms the heist movie genre into an existential exploration of life, work, and the passage of time.

New Music to Stream

  • This year, immerse yourself in a cowboy Christmas with country star Cody Johnson. Following the success of his critically acclaimed studio album “Leather,” Johnson invites viewers into his home for a festive treat. On CMT, catch “CMT Presents: A Cody Johnson Christmas” on Wednesday, where Johnson and his family share cherished holiday traditions, complete with renditions of classic Christmas songs. It’s a Texas-style holiday experience, all from the comfort of your couch. You’ll need to supply your own spiked eggnog, though.

  • If you’re seeking more holiday tunes, don’t miss AP’s holiday music roundup.

New Series to Stream

  • Peacock’s “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: RHONY Legacy” brings together early cast members of “The Real Housewives of New York” for a nostalgic adventure. Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Luann de Lesseps, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and Kristen Taekman jet off to St. Barths, a familiar location for fans, featured in the show’s fifth season. The first three episodes are set to drop on Thursday.

  • On Friday, December 15, CBS and Paramount+ will air the 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, which were postponed due to the Hollywood writers’ strike. Hosted by Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner of “Entertainment Tonight,” the event will see “General Hospital” leading with 19 nominations, followed by “The Bold and the Beautiful” with 14. “The Kelly Clarkson Show” has secured 11 nominations, the most for a daytime talk show. Susan Lucci, a longtime star of “All My Children,” will receive a Lifetime Achievement award.

  • Finally, the second season of Prime Video’s “Reacher,” starring Alan Ritchson, returns on Friday, December 15. Based on Lee Child’s novel “Bad Luck and Trouble,” this season features Reacher as a solitary traveler with no permanent home or possessions, except for a toothbrush. Notably, a third season has already been ordered.
