Netflix now offers a What’s Streaming feature to highlight the most exciting and highly anticipated titles coming to the subscription-based service, as well as a short list of those you’ll want to catch before they’re gone.
Here’s a few selections from July’s What’s Streaming list, from stand-up and well-loved films to Netflix Originals including Orange Is the New Black (recently-launched Season 3 is pretty awesome!), Tig, and Wet Hot American Summer.
Chris Tucker Live – Netflix Original
Cast: Chris Tucker
In his first-ever stand-up comedy special, Chris Tucker returns to the stage he loves and showcases his mind blowing comedic chops from pitch-perfect impersonations to singular on-stage physicality, sharing experiences from childhood to the big time. The special was filmed at the Historic Fox Theatre in Tucker’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.
Cast: Robert Downey Jr, Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges
After escaping kidnappers by building makeshift power armor, a weapons maker turns his creation into a force for good by using it to fight crime.
BoJack Horseman, Season 2 – Netflix Original
Cast: Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris
Meet the most beloved sitcom horse of the 90’s … 20 years later. BoJack Horseman was the star of the hit TV show Horsin’ Around, but today he’s washed up, living in a Hollywood bachelor pad, complaining about everything, and sometimes wearing colorful sweaters. Set in an L.A. where humans and anthropomorphic animal-people coexist, BoJack Horseman is about one man (well, horse-man) who peaked too early and must figure out what to do next.
Tig – Netflix Original
Cast: Tig Notaro
“Good evening. Hello. I have cancer.” That’s how comedian Tig Notaro opened her now legendary stand-up set at Largo in Los Angeles in August 2012. Defiantly funny in the face of devastating news that included the loss of her mother and her own breast cancer diagnosis, Tig is about how Notaro found herself on stage at that moment and how she put her life together just when it seemed to be falling apart.
Wet Hot American Summer – Netflix Original
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler
Return to the summer of 1981 at Camp Firewood in this hilarious prequel to the 2001 cult classic. Set on the first day of camp, events quickly snowball as rivalries simmer, secrets surface, hearts break and hormones rage. With the film’s original cast, including Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, and Amy Poehler returning as the oldest teenagers ever, this is a nostalgia trip like no other.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth
Back in District 13 after demolishing the Hunger Games, Katniss reluctantly becomes the icon of a groundswell rebellion against the Capitol.
