Arriving on Hulu in July 2016

Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner in the Hulu original series 'Difficult People'

Hulu announced highlights of its July schedule. New films include Mr. Holmes (2015) with Ian McKellan as an aging Sherlock Holmes, Terminator Genisys (2015) with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emilia Clarke, acclaimed foreign films Phoenix (2014) from Germany and Like Someone in Love (2012) from Japan (and directed by Iranian filmmaker Abba Kiarostami), and six Star Trek features (including the swashbuckling Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan). On the streaming TV side, Hulu launches news seasons of its original series Difficult People and East Los High plus Elementary: Season 4, Blue Bloods: Season 6, and of course day-after availability of dozens of new TV shows and specials.

You can see some of these without a subscription but most are available to subscribers only.
