What’s leaving Netflix UK in August / September 2020?
Staff Reporter | On 26, Aug 2020
While people still navigate their way through the coronavirus pandemic and work out when it’s safe to go outdoors, Netflix UK’s sizeable library of movies and TV shows remains a vital resource for keeping entertained indoors.
But before you start bingeing through its new originals, don’t miss out on catching up with some other gems before their rights expire and they head to another service, such as Disney+ or BritBox, or just disappear into the digital ether.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Boyz n the Hood – 29th August
John Singleton’s 1991 drama, starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ice Cube, follows the lives of three young males living in the Crenshaw ghetto of Los Angeles. Seminal stuff.
2012 – 31st August
Roman Emmerich’s disaster flick is spectacular, brain-dead entertainment.
Made in Dagenham – 31st August
Gemma Arterton and Sally Hawkins are superb in this winning tale of female factory workers fighting for equal pay.
First Reformed – 4th September
Ethan Hawke is remarkable in Paul Schrader’s blistering, challenging study of doubt, guilt, despair and purpose.
Blockers – 5th September
Generations clash in this laugh-out-loud teen-and-parent comedy that balances progressive smarts with gross-out giggles.
Thoroughbreds – 12th September
Hilarious and unpredictable, this deliciously twisted teen thriller is destined to become a cult favourite for a generation.
Last Action Hero – 12th September
“To be or not to be? Not to be…”
Coming to America – 13th September
Charming and disarming, Eddie Murphy’s ambitious rom-com mixes the silly with the sweet.
Trollhunter – 14th September
A group of students tracking bears stumble across something far bigger and older in the Norwegian outback: trolls. Luckily, they bump into a man whose job is to slay them for the government. Darkly amusing and witty, this unique Nordic horror is a little gem.
IT (2017) – 15th September
A classy horror picture with likeable characters and a nightmarish sense of adventure.
Happy Valley – 14th September
Sarah Lancashire is superb in the BBC’s Yorkshire-set crime drama.
Inside No 9 – 20th September
Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith’s anthology of twisted short tales is terrifyingly good – and often unsettlingly funny.
Limitless – 20th September
Bradley Cooper is perfectly cast in this smart thriller about a writer who discovers a drug that allows him to use all of his brain.
