It’s my favorite time of the month: Netflix has announced its June 2016 releases, which means I get to plan the next four weeks around all of my very important nights in. Really, they’re the most important events of my summer: When movies and TV shows that I’ve been dying to see finally show up on the streaming service. And this month especially promises a number of exciting titles. Not only are some of 2015’s biggest blockbusters coming to Netflix in June, but a bunch of original content is being released as well.
Just take a look at this amazing roster. It’s almost giving me more life than the promise of beach trips and sunscreen these days. Because as much as I love the weather and adventures that summer always brings, I’m also all about kicking back with a bowl of popcorn and living up the best season of the year school-vacation style. And for me, that meant late bedtimes, lots of afternoon movies, and some of the best movies of the year.
Luckily for us, Netflix is all about celebrating summer with some of their biggest releases of the year. Just look at some of the amazing titles coming this June.
