movies coming to netflix in june 2021

June is almost here, which brings a whole new set of movies and TV shows to Netflix! Below, we’ve picked out a few highlights before providing you the complete list of what’s new on Netflix in June 2021. It’s what we do here at Slash Film Dot Com.

the big short cast

Killing Them Softly

Andrew Dominik‘s bleak, cynical crime story Killing Them Softly has aged considerably well, particularly in how it portrays America as a hellish wasteland where everyone is out for themselves. Brad Pitt is an ultra-cool hitman who gets called in to clean up a mess from a stick-up during a mob-run card game. Outside of Pitt’s character, everyone here is a bumbling mess, from the junkie thieves – played by Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn – to the backup hitman Pitt brings in, played brilliantly by James Gandolfini as a guy who can’t even leave his hotel room.

Streets of Fire

Walter Hill‘s cool, silly, stylish Streets of Fire is set in some alternate universe where rock-and-roll bands and street gangs are everywhere, and everyone is always smoking and/or fighting. It’s big, loud, wildly entertaining stuff, and it features a scene-stealing Willem Dafoe as the bad guy and a drop-dead gorgeous Diane Lane as a singer everyone lusts after. Also on hand: Rick Moranis!

Stand By Me Returning to Theaters

Stand By Me

Rob Reiner‘s Stand By Me is a great Stephen King adaptation about four friends –  Wil WheatonRiver PhoenixCorey Feldman, and Jerry O’Connell – who come of age in the summer of 1959 when they set out to find a dead body. Funny and emotional, it’s one of the best King adaptations to ever hit the screen.

Hacking in Movies

Swordfish

Look, Swordfish is fucking ridiculous. It’s a hacker movie that clearly doesn’t understand how computers work or even what hacking is. But gosh, it’s got style! Hugh Jackman – back before he got insanely ripped – is a hacker tasked by evil soul-patch man John Travolta to help with a bank robbery. Halle Berry is there, too. Nothing makes sense. Watch it!

The Big Lebowski

After landing multiple Oscar nominations for Fargo (and taking home the award for Best Original Screenplay), the Coen Brothers returned with The Big Lebowski. Normally, a new film from Oscar nominees/winners generates lots of buzz. But for reasons that will forever remain a mystery, no one seemed to care about The Big Lebowski when it opened in theaters. As a Coen Brothers nerd, I cared – and I remember seeing the film in an empty theater opening weekend. Despite this box office setback, The Big Lebowski would become one of the Coens most well-known films as it garnered a huge cult following on home video. Jeff Bridges, in the role he was born to play, is a stoner bowler who accidentally becomes a private detective as he gets swept up in a ridiculous mystery. Hilarity ensues.
