In Movies & TV

"Inglourious Basterds," "Ex Machina" and "Twister" are just a few of the big names headed elsewhere.

Everything leaving Netflix in July 2020

Even though things have somewhat reopened, you should still be staying home as much as possible. Here's some news to help encourage that: Netflix will suffer through a pretty significant mass exodus of movies next month, so you might want to get to watching them while you can.

Indeed, according to the newly released lineup of departures from the Big Red Streaming Monolith, July will see quite the culling. Most notably for a movie nerd like me, a large number of the service's selections from A24 – the indie studio behind award-winning, critically acclaimed, genre-hopping options like "Ex Machina," "Under the Skin," "The Spectacular Now," "Room" and more – are leaving in July. (Some, like "Moonlight" and "Green Room," appear to be safe for now, but considering where things are trending, I'd watch those sooner than later if you haven't already.)

Little else is safe either. Modern blockbusters like "Solo," "The Incredibles 2" and "Ant-Man and the Wasp" will all leave for Disney+. Beloved nostalgic hits like "Back to the Future," "Twister," "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and "E.T." will all make like a cow in a tornado or a boy on an alien-controlled bike and fly away. (Fun fact about all four of those movies: They were all added to Netflix within just the last two months; brutally short shelf-lives over at the Monolith, and they're not going to get longer.)

Oscar winners "Inglourious Bastards," "Her" and "The Iron Lady" will take their trophies to other streaming services. And have you watched the coming-of-age comedy "The Edge of Seventeen" yet? Do that while you can.
