Netflix: the best new TV and films in July (plus everything else)
Orange Is The New Black Season 5

From classic blockbuster adventures to the long awaited return of its tent-pole prison drama, July brings with it a host of new TV and films on Netflix UK.

Here’s the best of what you can enjoy next month, as well as a full round-up of everything that’s being added.

The Mummy/Mummy Returns

What is it? There’s something undeniably charming about Brendan Fraser’s outings as adventurer Rick O’Connell, so fans of the turn-of-the-millennium action-adventure films will be glad to hear that both The Mummy and The Mummy Returns will be hitting Netflix on the same day.

A loose remake of a 1932 film, The Mummy sees Rick and Evie travel to Hamunaptra – the city of the dead – where they accidentally awaken terrifying undead avenger Imhotep.

What is it? Jerry Seinfeld’s bitesize series does what it says on the tin returns for its tenth season, the first under Netflix patronage.

Guests lined up for this run include Dana Carvey, Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, Zach Galifinakis, Jerry Lewis, Kate McKinnon, Hasan Minhaj, Tracy Morgan, and Alec Baldwin.

They’ll all be jumping in some delicious looking retro cars and heading for a brew with Seinfeld.

What is it? This coming-of-age drama written and directed by Stephen Chbosky (based on his own novel of the same name), follows teenager Charlie as he wrestles with adolescent challenges and past pains.

With an ensemble cast that includes Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, Melanie Lynskey, Paul Rudd, and Joan Cusack, the film depicts Charlie’s depression and anxiety as he attempts to make new friends in the always choppy waters of American high-school, and finds solace in a bunch of Rocky Horror loving misfits.

What is it? The fourth mini-series of Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat’s modern re-imagining of the famed detective comes to Netflix in the middle of the month.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman star as the titular sleuth and his wily assistant Dr. Watson, as long-buried secrets finally catch up with the Baker Street duo.

What is it? Natalie Portman earned herself a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her portrayal of former First Lady Jackie Kennedy.

Focusing on the devastating fall-out following the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, in 1963, the drama paints an engrossing portrait of the woman and her life.

What is it? Following on the heels of Annihilation, this Netflix Original movie starring Lizzy Caplan and Michael Peña is a sci-fi horror about a father who has a recurring dream of losing his family.

What is it?  Netflix’s long-running show based on Piper Kerman’s experiences at a minimum-security federal prison returns for its sixth season.

The inmates have been moved to a new institution, which is set to give the series a fresh look and feel, and star Adrienne C Moore described the season as “an amazing facelift” in an interview The Hollywood Reporter.

“Toward the end of season five, there were some people that were agreeing to stick together, and there were some people that were looking out for themselves. We’ll see the repercussions of those decisions in this next season.”
