What’s leaving Netflix UK in May / June 2022?
James R | On 23, May 2022
While people still navigate their way out of the coronavirus pandemic, Netflix UK’s sizeable library of movies and TV shows remains a handy 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, or just disappear into the digital ether.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Your Name – 31st May
This body-swapping, coming-of-age epic is one of the most beautiful animations you’ve ever seen.
The Last Samurai – 31st May
Tom Cruise and Ken Watanabe deliver heartfelt turns in this historical epic about a US Army Captain sent to Japan in 1876 to quell a samurai uprising, only to wind up rising alongside them. Corny white saviour drama? Yes. Well-intentioned and moving? Also yes.
The Blair Witch Project (1999) – 31st May
A trio of filmmakers go on what should have been a simple walk in the woods in this hugely influential, definitive found footage horror.
Adult Life Skills – 31st May
Jodie Whittaker delivers a winning performance in this charming British comedy-drama.
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown – 31st May
The late, great Anthony Bourdain was the kind of TV presence designed for bingeing: enthusiastic, informed, respectful and curious, he remains the ideal companion for this documentary series, which takes us on a tour of the globe for discoveries, entertaining debates and culinary delights.
Morvern Callar – 31st May
Scottish supermarket shelf-filler Morvern Callar (Samantha Morton) uses her boyfriend’s inheritance after his suicide to escape from her boring life. Emotionally intense road movie by the director of the prize-winning Ratcatcher.
Clear and Present Danger – 31st May
When Harrison Ford isn’t playing the President in Air Force One, he’s the President’s top man in the field, CIA Analyst Jack Ryan. His task? Get revenge on the guy who killed the President’s best friend. Bombastic, patriotic, blockbusting fun.
Click & Collect – 31st May
Stephen Merchant and Asim Chaudhry are an entertaining double-act in this Christmas comedy about two neighbours trying to get a coveted toy. Think Jingle All the Way, but better.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters – 2nd June
This majestically directed monster movie sequel is brimming with awe-inspiring spectacle.
Captain Phillips – 9th June
Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi are superb in this intense, riveting hijacking thriller.
Seberg – 9th June
Kristen Stewart is magnetic in this thoughtful drama about politics, privacy and personal conviction.
Bad Boys for Life – 10th June
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence reunite for a third outing as Miami cops Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett, who return to investigate a Cuban cartel.
Hereditary – 14th June
This haunting study of family grief and inherited fear is a heart-wrenching, heart-racing horror.
The Karate Kid (2010) – 14th June
