Summer brings long days and short nights and a host of opportunities for recreation. It also brings sizzling outdoor temperatures and sweltering heat. So, why not cool off indoors with your favorite Netflix binge? Luckily, we’ll be getting a host of great content to start off our summer in June 2019.
Summer seems to herald the “superhero” season – with plenty of big box office comic book adaptions. With “Avengers: Endgame” leaving fans wanting more, Netflix has plenty of super-content coming in June.
This includes adaptations like the series finale of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” “Batman Begins,” and “The Dark Knight.” You’ll also find sci-fi fare like Sundance Film Festival drama “I Am Mother.” And stay tuned for the fifth season of “Black Mirror,” a Netflix Original that has fans gasping for breath.
Anime fans can enjoy “Neon Genesis Evangelion.” You’ll want to stay indoors out of the heat and kick back in the A/C with these options.
Classic summer movies include horrorfests like “Carrie.” You can also catch must-see dramas like “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and “Network.”
So, here are the TV shows and movies coming to Netflix in June 2019.
Notable Netflix Originals
Netflix has been rapidly expanding into every single entertainment niche, and June 2019 is no exception.
‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones,’ Season 3
We have to admit that we have some mixed feelings about the third and final season of “Jessica Jones.” The character is iconic and empowering, and the gritty tone a welcome relief from most comic-book fare. But, the second season was just such a let-down. We hate to think that it was only the riveting performance by David Tenant that elevated Season 1 to such epic proportions. Because Kristyn Ritter is perfect as Jessica in every single way.
That said, we hope that Season 3 makes us regret the show’s cancellation. We’d like to see it go out on a high note.
You can tune in on June 14 to watch as Jessica is threatened by an enemy who wants to reveal her as a fraud.
‘Black Mirror,’ Season 5
Netflix likes to surprise us, and the latest season of “Black Mirror” launches June 5 with none other than Miley Cyrus. This time, however, we’ll only get three new episodes.
That’s okay, though. It’s powerful stuff, and three episodes sounds like plenty. Check out the trailer:
‘Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City’
There’s just something special about Laura Linney that makes everything she touches worth watching. In this reboot of the classic serial by Armistead Maupin, she plays Mary Ann Singleton, returning to San Fransisco. It’s been 20 years since Mary Ann left to build a career, but now, it’s time to come home.
“Tales of the City” also stars Olympia Dukakis, returning to her role as Anna Madrigal, and Ellen Page as daughter Shawna.
Notable Classic Titles Added
Netflix is the perfect format for ticking those “must-watch” boxes. Great art spans the decades. And you’ll find that movies made 20, 30, even 50 years ago still pack a powerful punch. Especially when it comes to drama.
This Oscar winner features Liza Minella as Sally Bowles, a bohemian stage performer in 1931 Berlin, Germany. Also on the marquee is Michael York as Brian Roberts, a sedate writer still in search of his sexual identity and his Ph.D. In the background, the rise of the Nazi regime looms.
“Cabaret” was a huge hit thanks to the musical numbers and direction of Bob Fosse. Also playing a part was its social relevance. And with plot lines that explore sexual orientation, abortion, religious persecution, and fascism, “Cabaret” is just a relevant in 2019 as it was in 1972 when the movie first released.
This 1976 satirical film has become such a part of popular culture that modern movies, shows, and music still quote and parody the movie. This is mostly thanks to the famous monologue scene with Peter Finch and the catchphrase: “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore.”
With four academy awards and four Golden Globes, “Network” follows the sinking ratings of a small TV station as it battles to stay on the air.
‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Southern Gothic playwright Tennesee Williams, this steamy classic stars Elizabeth Tayor and Paul Newman.
Newman plays a drunken has-been high school football player named Brick who returns home to his fathers Mississippi plantation with his wife, Maggie (Taylor). Brick and Maggie have been at odds. But Brick’s dying father, played by Burl Ives, steps in to try to heal the rift between them as well as the one between himself and his son.
Worth a Re-watch
Summertime is perfect for marathoning your favorite superhero flicks, and Netflix has got you covered. Start popping the corn! We’ll get the first two movies in The Dark Knight Trilogy in June 2019.
This reboot of the Batman movies takes a look at the origins of the superhero. And it also features some impressive star power. With Christian Bale as Batman, you’ll also get Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Gary Oldman, Rutger Hauer, and Morgan Freeman.
The story follows the career of Bruce Wayne from the death of his parents into his metamorphosis as Batman. While the first handful of Batman movies were great successes, they seemed to go downhill until The Dark Knight Trilogy launched with this movie in 2005. Its success has also given rise to “origin stories,” which fans have come to demand.
‘The Dark Knight’
Many fans and critics will tell you that “The Dark Knight” is the best Batman movie ever made. And 94 percent ratings from Rotten Tomatoes from both back that up.
While “The Dark Knight” is a high-caliber comic book adaption, it’s also a compelling crime drama. Starring Christian Bale and Heath Ledger as the Joker, who won an Oscar for his riveting performance.
In this installment in the Trilogy, Batman isn’t really just fighting crime. Ledger’s Joker is more than a crook — he’s a terrorist, sending the city of Gotham into a panic with his own special brand of mayhem.
