Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons star in Jane Campion’s latest, The Power of the Dog; Lily Collins is back for a new season of Emily in Paris; The Great British Baking Show presents its fourth holiday-themed season; and viewers will get another Money Heist installment, among many new additions to the streaming platform.
