What’s leaving Netflix UK in July / August 2017?
VOD News | On 17, Jul 2017
Summer. A time of sunshine, ice cream, strawberries and running to the nearest beach. Unless you’re Ian McKellen, David Bowie or Colin Firth, in which case you’ll be preparing to say goodbye to Netflix UK, as a range of cinematic gems expire on the subscription service, including Mr. Holmes and the inimitable Labyrinth.
With August on the horizon, this is your last chance to stream the following:
Labyrinth – 19th July
“I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.” If you’ve never seen David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King in this iconic 1986 fantasy, this is your chance.
Mr. Holmes – 19th July
Ian McKellen stars in this quietly smart take on the Baker Street detective, a sensitive and elegant meditation on memory, wrapped in an ingenious unpicking of the Sherlock mythology.
Exodus: Gods and Kings – 19th July
Big Biblical epics don’t come much bigger than this. Better, though, is another matter entirely…
The King’s Speech – 22nd July
Tom Hooper’s Oscar-winning drama sees Colin Firth’s learn to overcome his stammer with the help of Geoffrey Rush’s therapist. Their chemistry makes this a hugely watchable drama.
