What's Leaving Netflix in July 2015

Want to revisit "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" before "Terminator: Genisys" opens? Better do it before July 1, when Netflix says "Hasta la vista" to the 1991 sequel.

If you have a hankering to watch "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Moonstruck," "Cast Away," or "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," get on it, because those are also disappearing in July.

And start marathoning these TV classics before they go poof: "Leave it to Beaver," "Dragnet," "Mission: Impossible," "Hawaii Five-o," "Magnum P.I.," "Miami Vice," "Knight Rider," "Melrose Place" and "Wings." Also bid goodbye to the Stephen King miniseries "The Stand" (1994) and "The Langoliers" (1995).

Below is a complete list of the movies that Netflix is pulling from your streaming list. And, just so you're not left empty-handed, here's a list of what's new on Netflix in July 2015. (All titles and dates provided by Netflix and subject to change.)​

Directors Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco Give Dallas, TX Press and Children Sneak Peek of The Croods

  • Cinelinx
DreamWorks and 20th Century Fox chose a unique way to promote their newest animated family film. The studios sent directors Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco out on a tour of several different target markets to host question and answer sessions with reporters and their children about the making of "The Croods." The interactive sessions lasted about 35 minutes and utilized scenes from the film to keep even the youngest attendee interested.

"The Croods" tells the tale of the first family of humans. The group finds themselves forced into a brave new world after their cave home is destroyed. They run into many dangers and exotic creatures in their journeys. Can they re-locate and find their place in this new domain or will they just go extinct?

What does the future hold for DreamWorks Animation?

Feature Mark Harrison 25 Mar 2013 - 07:09

The Croods is the latest feature from DreamWorks Animation. But what does the future hold for the studio? Mark takes a look...

Arch your left eyebrow, for a moment. Good. Now, tilt your head to the side. I'll leave the smile up to you, but you must either smirk or give a big cheesy grin. You're now on your way to looking a lot like the DreamWorks Face, the expression that used to appear in pretty much every DreamWorks Animation film, usually on a talking animal of some description.

The thing is, in the past, all of DreamWorks' movies were comedies. It's since the studio has branched out into other genres, while retaining their sense of humour, that we've started sitting up and taking notice again.

For a while there, it looked like DreamWorks Animation had turned into the very corporate machine that it set out to lampoon: Disney.

Michael Clarke Duncan Dies At Age 54

Oscar-nominated actor Michael Clarke Duncan has died today at age 54. His fiancee Omarosa Stallworth and various news sources report that the actor suffered a heart attack on July 13 and never fully recovered.

The imposing actor got his start in Hollywood working as a bodyguard for high profile actors and musicians. He eventually began booking bit parts in television and film and his big break came when he was offered the role of Bear in the Bruce Willis disaster film Armageddon.

Duncan grabbed the attention of audiences and critics alike in 1999, when he starred with Tom Hanks in The Green Mile as an inmate with mystical powers (a role that earned him a well-deserved Oscar nomination). Since then, he has appeared in a number of high profile films including Planet of the Apes, The Island and most recently, Green Lantern.

At 6’5″, the larger than life actor made a huge impact in genre films.

'I'm Too Old For This Sh*t' Mash-Up: 'Lethal Weapon,' 'Stripes' And More (Video) (Nsfw)

  • Moviefone
You're getting too old for this: 25 years ago, on March 6, 1987, "Lethal Weapon" was released. The buddy-cop thriller not only cemented Mel Gibson's status as a household name after playing good-natured loose-canon (as opposed to now) Martin Riggs, but also created a social phenomenon still relevant to this day: "I'm getting too old for this shit." The catchphrase, said numerous times throughout the "Lethal Weapon" series by Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover), has appeared in many movies over the last 25 years, often times in reference to the put-upon police detective himself. (The recent trailer for "Men In Black 3" features Will Smith uttering a PG variation on Murtaugh's famous one-liner.) What you might not know? That "Lethal Weapon" wasn't the first film to utilize some form of the defeated turn-of-phrase. From "North by Northwest" and "The Sting" to Murtaugh himself, enjoy a mash-up of movie characters getting too old for this. Video

Zebra Horse Alert!

This animal made a surprise appearance in Manhattan today during the filming of Men In Black 3: Blacker and Menner (working title). Can you guess what type of animal it is? Ah, but look closer: That’s right, it’s a horse painted to look exactly like a zebra, for reasons I’m sure will become perfectly clear when we catch MIThree on a plane eighteen months from now. A horse painted to look like a zebra? Isn’t that the exact plot of the movie Racing Stripes? Then Frankie Muniz and Jeff Bridges train Painted Secretariat to win the Triple Crown while Steve Harvey is a breakdancing horsefly? No need to IMDb it, I’m right. It’s also the plot of one of my all-time favorite Simpsons jokes: (pics via Splash News)
