It's hard to think about staying in to watch Netflix when we're having glorious summer weather. But the streaming service is determined to keep us indoors.

In fact today Netflix has us particularly impressed.

For the first day of the new month, there's a whole bunch of new movies hitting the platform.

You'll definitely want to check out at least one of these tonight - and the rest over the coming weeks.



The rip-roaring modern classic that is 'Bridesmaids' is now on Netflix. It definitely warrants a rewatch even if you have already seen it and if you haven't then where have you been?? Kristen Wiig, Rose Byrne, Ellie Kemper and Wendi McLendon-Covey are the fantastic titular bridesmaids. Here's the best scene in the movie.


The Hunger Games franchise

Yes, all four of 'The Hunger Games' features hit Netflix today so you might want to put aside a weekend to binge on them. In arguably the role she is still most synonymous with, Jennifer Lawrence plays Katniss Everdeen, who'll do everything it takes to protest her family in a dystopian world where food is scarce.


Zero Dark Thirty

Fresh off the Oscar-winning success of 'The Hurt Locker', Kathryn Bigelow directed this chronicle of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after 9/11. It's a powerful feature and may be even better than 'The Hurt Locker'.


The Adjustment Bureau

'The Adjustment Bureau' fits the ticket if you're looking for a romantic, sci fi, spy thriller type of flick. Matt Damon plays a US congressman who discovers a technologically advanced intelligence network may be controlling his life. Emily Blunt plays the professional dancer he falls for.


It’s Complicated

While it wouldn't be the best output from stars Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, 'It's Complicated' is a good one to switch your brain off to. A spark reignites between a divorced couple - but he's remarried and she's hoping to start a relationship with her architect.


The Accountant of Auschwitz

It doesn't happen often but if you're in the mood for something a bit heavier and more serious on Netflix, this packs a punch. Seventy years after WWII, Oskar Gröning, one of the last surviving members of the SS, goes on trial as an accessory to the murder of 300,000 people at the Auschwitz concentration camp.


Elizabeth: The Golden Age

There's a certain audience out there whose go-to films are these type of historical, costume dramas and Netflix hasn't added a new one in a while. Cate Blanchett plays Queen Elizabeth I just beautifully. She's joined by Clive Owen, Geoffrey Rush, Abbie Cornish, and Samantha Morton



Noah Centineo ('To All the Boys I've Loved Before', 'Sierra Burgess is a Loser', 'The Perfect Date') continues to be the go-to guy when it comes to Netflix films aimed at youths. Like 'The Perfect Date' this one is dating app-orientated. Check out the trailer.


The Taking of Pelham 123

If you feel like a really sh** action movie - and in fairness, sometimes the mood takes you - check out 'The Taking of Pelham 123' with Denzel Washington and John Travolta. A train dispatcher is the only one who can save the day when armed men hijack a New York City subway train and holding the passengers hostage.


The Campaign

Another underwhelming feature but might appeal to Zach Galifianakis or Will Ferrell fans. The actors play two North Carolinians vying for a seat in Congress. The movie bombed at the box office.
