  • Netflix is adding 17 new shows, movies, and specials in the first full week of July.
  • Two movies that should be on your radar are a disaster anime from the creator of Devilman Crybaby and an action flick where Charlize Theron plays an immortal warrior.
  • Netflix is also losing Solo: A Star Wars Story this week, leaving it with no Star Wars movies.

It’s the end of an era this week, as the last Star Wars movie still left on Netflix is setting off for the greener pastures of Disney+. Thankfully, there’s plenty of new content to take its place, including The Old Guard, which is a superhero film about a group of immortal warriors based on a comic book and starring Charlize Theron. If you’re into global disasters (and who isn’t nowadays?), Japan Sinks: 2020 should sate your appetite as well.
