23 Movies Leaving Netflix in June We Need To Stream Now

Meryl Streep in Julie & Julia (2009)
Columbia Pictures

It's the sad truth we must all face: Netflix has to give up some of the titles that we all know and love -- and June is a doozy. So many awesome movies are leaving the streaming service, and it starts at the first of the month. Luckily, there's such great content flowing in, but still, it's hard to say goodbye, including to a few classic movies. So if ya haven't checked in with Netflix as of late, ya might want to as a fave currently in queue might disappear sooner than expected.

Netflix is ditching some of its fan-favorite movies this month, and as sad as we are to see some of these titles go, they're being replaced with even better films and shows. The films heading out next month range from family-friendly to terrifying horror flicks, with a few award-winning numbers among the bunch. 

Some of the movies leaving Netflix will make their way to a new platform that includes Disney and Marvel films. Disney has its own streaming service, Disney+, that is the home for all of the classics, new series, and pretty much everything in between. As a result, features that lived on Netflix will have to transfer to the Disney streaming platform -- plus any Marvel or Star Wars movies.

Basically, there's no time like the present to start binge-watching Netflix. Make sure to check out these 23 movies before they're gone for good.
