With summer here, who’s going to spend their time indoors watching things on the Internet? The answer: Anyone who has seen the list of films leaving NOW TV and Sky Movies in June and July 2016 and doesn’t want to miss out on dragons, hobbits, Chris Pratt and Bill Murray.
This is your last chance to stream the following…
Girls – 19th June
Don’t miss your chance to hang out with the Girls this summer, as Seasons 1 to 4 of Lena Dunham’s show depart – taking with them the dreamy Adam Driver.
Veep: Season 1 – 24th June
Compared to The Thick of It, Armando Iannucci’s US political satire is less spiky, but with Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the ever-struggling Selina, it’s as sweary, witty and likeable as ever.
11.22.63 – 28th June
James Franco plays a guy who travels back in time to stop the assassination of JFK in this fun, trashy thriller. James Franco. Hats. What more could you want?
The Tunnel: Season 2 – 30th June
One of Sky’s more underrated originals, this remake of The Bridge returns to see Stephen Dillane and Celemence Poesy reunite as Detective Karl Roebuck and Elise Wasserman to investigate the abduction of a couple from the Eurotunnel.
New Girl: Season 1 to 3 – 30th June
Who’s that girl? If you’re a fan of Zooey Deschanel or laughing, find out before it’s too late.
Sons of Anarchy: Season 1 to 7 – 30th June
One of the best TV shows of recent years, Kury Sutter’s drama about the lives of an outlaw motorcycle club is just the thing for people who like bikes, brutal violence or jus good old testosterone.
Prison Break: Season 1 to 4 – 30th June
Before the show returns for a mini-series next year, here’s your chance to get up to speed.
The Flash: Season 2 – 30th June
Episodes of Season 2 of The Flash are racing away from Sky’s on-demand library every week, but if you need a deadline to speed through to the finale, that crucial last episode disappears dead on the end of the month.

Hiccup and Toothless return for another animated adventure, which sees the young Viking face the prospect of one day taking over from his dad as chief of the tribe, as well as the threat of an alpha dragon master with his own flame-breathing army. Loyalty, parenthood and kick-ass flying sequences combine to make a mature and moving family story. Who said sequels had to be rubbish?
Frost/Nixon – 17th June
Ron Howard’s drama telling the story of a remarkable set of interviews between David Frost and US President Richard Nixon, brings the history and importance of the Watergate scandal thrillingly to life.
The Lord of the Rings

Boyhood – 18th June
Shot over 12 years with the same group of actors, Richard Linklater’s chronicle of a boy growing up is an epic of tiny proportions – and astonishing feat of filmmaking.
Guardians of the Galaxy – 19th June
Marvel’s most entertaining film yet see Chris Pratt on fine form, as a bunch of misfits band together for friendship, universe-saving and singsongs.
Groundhog Day – 30th June
Before Tim Minchin’s stage musical arrives in London, see the original and marvel, once again, at Bill Murray.
The Shining – 30th June
Quite possibly the scariest film ever made.
