Now that Game of Thrones is officially over (don’t panic, we won’t reveal any spoilers) here at KWD HQ we have a huge hole in our lives that needs filling and only Netflix is going to help heal us. So while we’ve been killing some time we’ve put together a list of the new shows and films arriving on Netflix this June to keep us occupied. We want to share our list with you to make sure you have something to watch at night rather than stare at the wall reliving the whole of GOT. So put on your favourite Kings Will Dream tracksuit and get ready to binge watch Netflix all June long.
Snatch (1st June)
Released in 2000, this British crime comedy features a star-studded cast including, Jason Statham, Brad Pitt and Vinnie Jones. Directed by Guy Ritchie, the movie is set in the London criminal underworld and focuses on two intertwined plots. One of them is a search for a diamond and an illegal boxing promoter (Statham) who finds himself being controlled by a gangster (Alan Ford) who won’t hesitate to allow his crew carry out some pretty violent acts. If you’re looking for the perfect film to watch with the lads with plenty of plot twists then get streaming Snatch on the 1st June.
Black Mirror Season 5 (5th June)
After the release and success of interactive episode, Bandersnatch, Black Mirror is returning for season five. However, this series is only made up of three episodes due to the time it took Charlie Brooker to put together Bandersnatch. Let’s be honest we’re just grateful we’re getting three new episodes to be honest. There hasn’t been too much information released about the latest series however we do know the episode titles and a short description.
Smithereens stars Andrew Scott, Topher Grace and Damson Idris and is centred around a cab driver with an agenda (Andrew Scott) who becomes the centre of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control. Rachel Jack and Ashley, Too features Miley Cyrus, Angourie Rice and Madison Davenport and is about a lonely teenager who wants to connect with her favourite pop star. However, is the star’s life as perfect as it seems? Striking Vipers stars Anthony Mackie, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff and Ludi Lin. Two estranged college friends reunite in later life, triggering a series of events that could alter their lives forever.
The Terminator (18th June)
Arnie is back (sorry we couldn’t resist). We have a feeling most of you have seen the 1984 film before but that doesn’t mean you can’t keep going back to it… If by a weird turn of events, you haven’t seen this classic we’ll break the plot down a bit for you. A cyborg assassin, disguised as a human, known as a Terminator (Schwarzenegger) travels from 2029 to 1984 to kill Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton).
However, Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) has been sent to protect Sarah as he discloses that Skynet is coming, an artificial intelligence system that will spark a nuclear holocaust. Sarah is targeted because Skynet knows that her unborn son will lead the fight against them. With the virtually unstoppable Terminator in hot pursuit, she and Kyle attempt to escape. It’s a sick film and is perfect for lads’ night, date night or just any night to be honest.
Creed II (25th June)
Possibly one of the best boxing films from the 21st century, the 208 film follows on from the 2015 prequel and references Rocky IV. In 1985 Russian boxer Drago killed former US champion Apollo Creed during an unforgettable boxing match. In Creed II Apollo’s son Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) accepts a challenge from Drago’s son against the wishes of his trainer Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone. The film follows Adonis as he trains for the match of his life. As if the plot line hasn’t sold it to you already the soundtrack features, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, Bon Iver and more. This is a film that will have you jumping out of your seat thinking you’re a champion.
