Just because it’s summer, it doesn’t mean there are any less options when it comes to Netflix binging. In fact, Netflix has an even wider selection of entertaining original films and series that will be streaming this month.
In Good Girls (July 3), three suburban moms (Christina Hendricks, Retta and Mae Whitman) who are best friends can’t make ends meet so they decide to pull off a grocery store heist. Yup, not-so-good girls after all. However, when a manager spots one of them, things start to get interesting.
The Litchfield ladies are back in season six of Orange is the New Black (July 27). You know you love the drama and humor so fix yourself a margarita and get your fix of this orange jumpsuit sesh.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: New 2018: Freshly Brewed is another Netflix original that’s up for binge-watching. In a new set of episodes for 2018, Jerry Seinfeld takes rides with 12 comedy heavyweights, including Jerry Lewis, Ellen DeGeneres and Dave Chappelle.
All a father (Josh Brolin) wants to do is bond with his son on a trip. And to kill a deer. And to get it all on video. Is that too much to ask? Well, you’ll find out in the original film The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter (July 6).
Again, it’s all about the dads. Two college grads ask the question: whose dad would win in a fight? We’ll find out in the original film Father of the Year (July 20).
In Extinction (July 27), a family man (Michael Peña) has to face his worst fears when an extraterrestrial force begins exterminating Earth’s inhabitants. If sci-fi is your buddy, you’ll like to watch this one.
Don’t we all love comedies? It’s a big family reunion when Dusty (Mark Wahlberg), his dad Kurt (Mel Gibson), Brad (Will Ferrell) and his dad Don (John Lithgow) spend Christmas together as one big family in Daddy’s Home 2 (July 27).
Melissa McCarthy brings her comedic skills to the table in The Boss (July 1). She stars as Michelle Darnell, the wealthiest woman in America with an ego to match, and she decides to start her own girls’ group called Darnell’s Darlings, in which she teaches the girls aggressive business skills and makes a mint by having them sell brownies.
All for Screams
For the horror geeks, there’s a classic film coming to haunt you in The Exorcism of Emily Rose (July 1), which follows the demonic possession of a 19-year-old college freshman. Yes, yes and yes.
Another horror on the lighter side is Mom and Dad (July 20). When a mass hysteria of unknown origins causes parents to turn violently on their own kids, Carly and her little brother Josh must try to survive a wild 24 hours.
The Oscar-nominated film I, Tonya (July 6) follows American figure skating champion Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) and the vicious attack on her competitor, Nancy Kerrigan. Allison Janney won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, while Margot Robbie earned an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
A Beautiful Mind is based on a true story and was nominated for eight Academy Awards, winning four: Best Picture, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Director and Best Screenplay. It follows eccentric mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr. (Russell Crowe), who was a pioneer in the field of game theory. Once diagnosed with schizophrenia, he had to fight his way to victory. This is definitely one to watch again.
Suicide Squad (July 15) brings a team of supervillains together to have them fight against possible threats to the country. Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), The Joker (Jared Leto), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) and Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) star in this action adventure.
