The best movies coming to Netflix in July

Posted on

Every month, Netflix adds a host of new films and television series to its streaming service. Ahead, a look at the best movies coming to Netflix in July.

Titanic (dir. James Cameron)

Never let go. (Available July 1.)

E.T the Extra-Terrestrial (dir. Steven Spielberg)

During a year that has, thus far, been mostly devoid of standout children’s entertainment, revisit Spielberg’s 1982 masterpiece. (Available July 1.)

Punch-drunk Love (dir. Paul Thomas Anderson

Before Adam Sandler goes prestige this fall in Noah Baumbach’s Netflix original film (and Cannes Film Festival debut) The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), remember his first foray into the Oscar-y waters with Anderson’s vibrant, Technicolor romance. (Available July 1.)

The Land Before Time (dir. Don Bluth)

Bluth’s beloved franchise starter is perfect for those in the mood for a brisk bit of heartwarming animation: its running time is a scant 69 minutes. (Available July 1.)

Best in Show (dir. Christopher Guest)

Guest’s hilarious mockumentary remains the best dog show comedy ever. (Available July 1.)

Lion (dir. Garth Davis)

A best picture nominee at this year’s Oscars, Davis’ emotional drama includes a standout performance from Dev Patel (a nominee in the supporting actor category). (Available July 9.)

To the Bone (dir. Marti Noxon)

Based on Noxon’s own experiences with anorexia and bulimia, To the Bone was met with some controversy when its striking first trailer debuted earlier this month. “My goal with the film was not to glamorize [eating disorders], but to serve as a conversation starter about an issue that is too often clouded by secrecy and misconceptions,” Noxon wrote on Twitter in response to some of the growing outrage. Reviews for the Netflix original film were strong out of the Sundance Film Festival in January, where To the Bone premiered. (Available July 14.)

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (dir. Gareth Edwards)

Return to a galaxy far, far away and watch last year’s blockbuster Star Wars film, a prequel to the events of the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope. (Available July 18.)

The Incredible Jessica James (dir. Jim Strouse)

Prepare for Jessica Williams’ forthcoming domination of Hollywood with her breakout turn in the Netflix original The Incredible Jessica James, an indie rom-com that gives the former Daily Show correspondent her biggest screen role yet. (Available July 28.)
