Summer’s almost over, so there’s no time to waste if you want to catch the sunshine while it lasts – but before you do, make sure you won’t also miss the departure of your favourite film or TV show from Netflix UK, as another month ends and rights expire. This August, that means bidding farewell to one of the best horror movie of the decade, and the Rocky sequel that you never knew you needed.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Creed – 22nd August
A gripping, moving human drama that finds fresh weight in boxing movie conventions.
Get Out – 23rd August
Jordan Peele’s scathingly sharp horror that doesn’t need monsters to be horrifying.
Pacific Rim – 23rd August
What’s the only thing that can stop a gigantic alien invasion? Even larger robots. That’s the premise behind Guillermo Del Toro’s unabashedly retro actioner, which hits all the monster movie buttons you could wish. The non-robot cast includes Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba.
A Star Is Born (1976) – 31st August
Don’t miss your chance to catch the Barbra Streisand version of the classic Hollywood story.
Carrie (1976) – 31st August
Brian De Palma’s horror is a seminal story of a teenager being pushed to the edge.
Full Metal Jacket – 31st August
After a seven-year hiatus from the screen, Stanley Kubrick return to make this blistering Vietnam war film, which charts the psychological fallout of a harrowing bootcamp preparing US soldiers for combat.
Gangs of New York – 31st August
Daniel Daw Lewis is on intimidating form in Martin Scorsese’s period drama about the formation of New York and America as we know it.
Get Shorty – 31st August
John Travolta and Gene Hackman star in this stylish adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s novel, which just might be one of the funniest Hollywood-set comedies ever made.
Kill Bill: Vol. 1 – 31st August
Uma Thurman is brilliantly bad-ass in the first half of Quentin Tarantino’s stylish revenge story.
The Mummy – 31st August
Balancing adventure, horror, action and laughs, 1999’s rollicking reboot of The Mummy is that rare thing: a real successor to Indiana Jones.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009) – 1st September
Noomi Rapace delivers a magnetic lead performance in this gripping, old-school crime thriller.
Kicking and Screaming – 3rd September
Noah Baumbach’s debut is a witty not-coming-of-age story set among arrested college graduates.
Notting Hill – 11th September
Hugh Grant in scuba goggles. Julia Roberts in space. Rhys Ifans in grey Y fronts. This charming romantic comedy is Richard Curtis at his peak.
Schindler’s List – 11th September
Steven Spielberg’s telling of the true story of Oskar Schindler, a factory owner who risked his own life to save his Jewish workforce from the Holocaust in World War, is a powerful, important masterpiece.
Suicide Squad – 16th September
“What the hell is wrong with you people?” “We’re bad guys. It’s what we do.”
