What’s leaving Netflix UK in July / August 2019?
Reading time: 3 mins
Summer’s here, and there’s no better time to run and frolic outside, but before you do, make sure you won’t miss the departure of your favourite film or TV show from Netflix UK, as another month ends and rights expire. This July, that means bidding farewell to cute animated minions, sobering action from Edgar Wright, a brilliant BBC costume drama, an impressive anime and one of the UK’s funniest comedians.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Despicable Me 2 – 24th July
The Minions seize centre stage in this sequel to DreamWorks’ animated comedy, which sees Steve Carell’s Gru go undercover to catch another super-villain, but its adopted daughter Agnes who makes this as adorable as it is funny.
The World’s End – 24th July
Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright team up once again for the final entry in their Cornetto trilogy, as a bunch of old friends reunite for a pub crawl in their sleepy hometown, just as aliens invade.
Hard Eight – 26th July
Don’t miss the chance to see the very beginning of Paul Thomas Anderson’s career with his 1996 debut, Hard Eight, which sees a gambler show a stranger how to make a living in Las Vegas.
Little Dorrit – 31st July
Claire Foy and Matthew Macfadyen are on fine form in Andrew Davies’ slick, compelling BBC series based on the classic Dickens novel.
Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic – 31st July
Set in a world of magic, genies (known as Djinn) and treasure-filled castles (known as Dungeons), Magi is an entertaining take on the lore of Arabian Nights.
Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle – 31st July
Stewart Lee’s smug tirades and educated, middle-class opinions are all designed to ruin stand-up comedy as we know it. For those who don’t like his intellectual concerns and patronising tone, he’s impossible to tolerate. For those who do, he makes it impossible to tolerate other comedians. That’s the brilliance of Stewart Lee’s stand-up: either way, everyone ends up miserable. His BBC series delivers exactly what you’d expect from the comedian, tackling everything from wealth and Graham Norton to racism and whether his own jokes count as entertainment or not.
