What are the biggest Netflix originals in July? Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 — the two-part supersized end to the fourth season, out July 1 — is easily the biggest title, as fans await the outcome of the showdown of Vecna with the Hawkins Gang. Meanwhile, Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans lead Netflix’s most expensive movie of all time, The Gray Man, which also stars Ana de Armas, Regé-Jean Page, and Dhanush. The Gray Man shoots in July 22. The other talked-about movie — or at least its trailer was — is Persuasion, the witty adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel with Dakota Johnson, Cosmo Jarvis, and Henry Golding. Persuasion heats up July 15. And lastly, we’ve Better Call Saul season 6 part 2 — starting July 12 — that features Walter White and Jimmy Pinkman, among other claimed surprises.
July is a banner month for Netflix India too, as there are four Indian originals. Jitendra Kumar leads the quirky sports dramedy Jaadugar — sparkling in July 15 — about a small-town magician trying to win a local football tournament to marry the love of his life. Ranveer Singh leads Netflix India’s first interactive special in Ranveer vs Wild with Bear Grylls, roaring in July 8, where you get to decide what Ranveer does. The second season of the comedy-drama Masaba Masaba, starring Masaba and Neena Gupta, is also expected in July, though we don’t have an exact date yet. And lastly, we’ve the docu-series Indian Predator: The Butcher of Delhi, striking in July 20, that attempts to decode the minds of some of India’s deadliest killers.
If you’re looking for more Netflix original series in July, you might want to check out Resident Evil — no connection to the movies — that finds Lance Reddick (John Wick) and Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels) leading a redefined take on the concept. Resident Evil screams onto Netflix July 14. Neil Patrick Harris stars in the rom-com series Uncoupled, steaming in July 29, about a New York City real estate broker in his 40s whose longtime boyfriend leaves him. Elsewhere, To All the Boys star Lana Candor leads the dark comedy series Boo, Bitch — screaming onto Netflix July 8 — where she turns into a ghost and then becomes popular at school.
For families in July, there’s the spin-off series Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight on July 14, which brings back Jack Black to voice the title character as he teams up with an elite English knight on a quest to rescue magical weapons. Meanwhile, the award-winning filmmaker behind Moana and Big Hero 6 gives us the animated adventure The Sea Beast, where a young stowaway girl and a legendary sea monster hunter (Karl Urban) venture into uncharted waters. The Sea Beast sails in July 8 on Netflix.
Over in the unscripted department in July, there are two titles that stand out — apart from the aforementioned Indian Predator: The Butcher of Delhi. First up is Girl in the Picture, a true crime documentary about a woman found dying by a road who leaves behind a son, and a man claiming to be her husband. Girl in the Picture is available July 6. And for those looking for something much less bleaker, designer Melanie Rose tells us how she dreamt up erotic renovations for couples in How to Build a Sex Room, be it a next-level spa or a secret rock ‘n’ roll dungeon. How to Build a Sex Room is out July 8 on Netflix.
