Taking down those Christmas decors and replacing the calendar on your desk mean only one thing—January has come to mark the start of a fresh new year. While the tradition is out with the old and in with the new, Star Movies pays homage to some of the best flicks of 2010.

So start the year right with a family habit and tune in to Star Movies at 9 p.m. every Sunday night. Catch the latest blockbusters, heartwarming romantic comedies, and exciting thrillers as they premiere on your TV screens this January, only at Star Movies.

Shanghai (January 9). John Cusack and Chow Yun-Fat star in this mystery thriller set in Shanghai. As the American intelligence official Paul Soames (Cusack) investigates his friend’s death, he crosses paths with local gangster Anthony Lan-Ting (Chow) and his beautiful wife Anna (Gong Li). He will have to find a way through the web of lies, deception, and mystery to uncover a secret more dangerous that he ever imagined.

When in Rome (January 16). Overly romantic but embittered Elizabeth Martin (Kristin Bell) goes to Rome on an impulsive trip and falls in love with reporter Nick Beamon (Josh Duhamel). But then she accidentally ignites the passions of a handful of suitors after picking magic coins from a fountain of love. Street magician Lance (Jon Heder), sausage magnate Al Ruso (Danny DeVito), narcissistic model Gale (Dax Shepard), and painter Antonio (Will Arnett) all fall under the spell. While trying to break the spell, she realizes that one of the coins belongs to Nick. How will she know which love is the real thing?

Everybody’s Fine (January 23). What happens when a father tries to reconnect bonds with his children? Frank (Robert de Niro) has been the perfect family man—working hard for his family and being a caring husband to his wife. But when his wife dies, his main point of contact with his kids also disappears. Now that he tries to reconnect with his kids by going on a cross-country trip to surprise each of his three kids, he discovers that he may never have known his family at all.

Alice in Wonderland (January 30). The age-old classic gets a makeover with Tim Burton’s take on Alice’s adventures in Wonderland. Now a 19-year-old young lady, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to the wonderworld and reunites with her childhood friends and creatures, including the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp). Now, she has to embark on a quest to team up with the White Queen (Anne Hathaway) and end the Red Queen’s (Helena Bonham Carter) reign of darkness.
