New on Netflix: July 2021

While there’s going to be a lot of great new content on Netflix this month, sadly it looks like South Africa isn’t going to get Gunpowder Milkshake on our home screens when the rest of the world sees it in mid-July. Considering we’re back in Level 4 and cinemas are closed again, I’m disappointed… but I suppose I can’t say I’m surprised.

That annoyance not withstanding, we’ve still got a lot to look forward to this month, including The Fear Street Trilogy, new seasons of The Movies That Made Us, Explained, and Glow Up, along with Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness and Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
