Coming and Going on Hulu in July 2017

Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson star in the Jane Austen adaptation from director Ang Lee

Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris are civilians dropped into the center of international intrigue in the John le Carré adaptation Our Kind of Traitor, which makes its streaming debut on Hulu in July. Also debuting on Hulu are Spike Lee’s Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, his remake of the cult vampire film Ganja and Hess, and the offbeat buddy comedy Prince Avalanche with Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.

Older films circulating through the line-up include Syriana with George Clooney and Matt Damon, Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet, Roman Polanski’s classic Rosemary’s Baby, Will Ferrell comedy Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, the cult barroom bouncer classic Road House with Patrick Swayze, cult sci-fi mindbender Dark City, and nine Star Trek movies, including original cast favorites Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.

New documentaries include Under the Gun (on the issues surrounding gun violence and gun control), Inside Job (on the economic meltdown), and the Beatles documentary Good Ol’ Frieda.

For kids and tweens there’s the friends-forever dramedy Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, offbeat fantasy The Witches, and animated film Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie.

And there’s a westerns mini-festival of sorts, including fifties classics The Furies with Barbara Stanwyck and Johnny Guitar with Joan Crawford, spaghetti westerns The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and A Fistful of Dynamite, and the eighties comedy Rustler’s Rhapsody.

Among the films leaving Hulu at the end of July are the Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone, the film noir-inflected thriller Kill Me Again and No Way Out (1987), and the family friendly comedies The Addams Family and Addams Family Values.
