Every film and series leaving Netflix this week: July 2024

July has crept up on us with a striking reminder of the rapid passage of time, and Netflix fans are, as usual, taking every moment to watch the best movies and TV shows that the streaming service has to offer before they move on to pastures new.

Thankfully, this week will see the departure of only one movie from Netflix, Todd Phillips’ 2016 black comedy crime film War Dogs, which is based on a 2011 Rolling Stone article ‘Arms and the Dudes’ by Guy Lawson, which he later expanded into a novel format.

Starring Jonah Hill, Miles Teller, Ana de Armas and Bradley Cooper, War Dogs tells of two arms dealers, Efraim Diveroli and David Packouz, who agree a $300million contract from the US Army to supply the Afghan National Army with a stream of weapons and ammunition.

The heavily fictionalised and dramatised story, labelled as being “true” is narrated unreliably and a number of the film’s events, including Diveroli and Packouz actually driving through Iraq were completely invented, although some were based on writer Stephen Chin’s personal experiences.

While War Dogs is indeed the only movie to be leaving Netflix this week, subscribers to the streaming service should not rest on their laurels too much because there is a steady stream of titles that will be departing by the end of July.

Around halfway through the month, Abducted in Plain Sight and The Beguiled will no longer be available for viewing, while July 23rd will see Big Eyes also depart the Netflix service for the foreseeable future.

On July 31st, there will be a huge exodus of movies and TV shows on Netflix, including some big titles. Both Resident Evil and Resident Evil: Extinction will leave the streamer, so zombie horror fans ought to act quickly if they want to catch the films before it’s too late.

The original The Matrix trilogy is currently available for viewing on Netflix, but they will also depart the streamer, along with Role Models, Public Enemies, American Graffiti, Fatal Attraction, King Richard, Knocked Up, Shrek, The Theory of Everything and Traffic.

But for now, the only movie that Netflix fans have to worry about watching before the week is up is Todd PhillipsWar Dogs, starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller. Still, time will creep up on July 31st, so it’s important to keep track of the day so as not to miss the best titles that are departing the streaming service soon.
