The Best TV Shows and Movies New to Netflix, Amazon and More in June

At the beginning of every month, subscription streaming services add a new batch of movies and TV shows to their libraries. Here are the titles we think are most interesting, broken down by service and release date. Streaming services occasionally change schedules without giving notice.

An Seo-hyun in “Okja.”Netflix

New to Netflix

13 Going on 30
Starts streaming: June 1

 

Wanna feel old? This movie is already celebrating its 13th anniversary. Much like the Tom Hanks movie “Big,” this endearing film starring Jennifer Garner is about a kid who thinks growing up is the best until she wishes herself into adulthood. (Surprise: Growing up is not the best.)

‘Young Frankenstein
Starts streaming: June 1

 

Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder spoof the Universal horror-movie monsters of the 1930s in this black-and-white film from 1974, memorably teaming Dr. Frankenstein (Wilder) and his monster (Peter Boyle) for a song-and-dance duet of “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” Several of Brooks’s regular players make appearances, including Madeline Kahn as Dr. Frankenstein’s haughty girlfriend and Marty Feldman as an incompetent Igor. Infectiously quotable.

‘Zodiac

Before Robert Downey Jr. became one of the world’s biggest movie stars in “Iron Man,” he enjoyed a bit of a renaissance in movies like “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” “A Scanner Darkly” and this David Fincher film. Downey and Jake Gyllenhaal play two San Francisco newsmen trying to solve the case of the Zodiac killer. Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Edwards play the detectives on the case. The movie is a fascinating study of obsession — and of the idea that sometimes, some things just never get resolved.
