Netflix and Amazon Still Have Great New Movies and TV Shows Coming This Month

Over the course of each month, subscription streaming services add new movies and TV shows to their libraries. Here are the titles we think are most interesting for the last two weeks of June, broken down by service and release date. Streaming services occasionally change schedules without giving notice.

With no love interest and no evil villain trying to take her crown, Moana (voiced by Auli’i Cravalho) is not your typical Disney princess. The movie, about her attempt to save her island home, has an empowering message for girls. Jemaine Clement (from “Flight of the Conchords”) and Dwayne Johnson drop in for a few funny songs written by the creator of “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda.

For his first film since the visionary international smash “Snowpiercer,” the Korean director Bong Joon-ho tells the story of a young farm girl who travels the world to retrieve her pet: a giant pig who’s become a source of global controversy among environmental activists and deceitful corporate profiteers. Tilda Swinton plays a shortsighted executive heading one of the factions trying to claim the pig, in a comic adventure movie that garnered mostly glowing reviews when it debuted at Cannes.

Set during the 1980s pro wrestling boom, this dramedy tells a fictionalized story of the syndicated TV favorites the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Alison Brie stars as a frustrated actress in Los Angeles, who under the tutelage of one of the league’s bosses (Marc Maron) discovers that pretending to beat people up is one of the most fulfilling gigs she’s ever had.

A bohemian mother (Annette Bening) enlists her two boarders (Greta Gerwig and Billy Crudup) and a neighbor (Elle Fanning) to help raise her awkward teenage son in an open and permissible home in sunny, 1970s California. Sadly, awards season mostly missed Bening’s and Gerwig’s incredibly heartfelt performances, but that doesn’t mean you have to.
