5. I Am Legend

July 1

You might not want to think about the apocalypse right now, but if you’re in the mood, I Am Legend is great dystopian sci-fi with a monster movie twist. As (almost) the only human character, Will Smith delivers an all-time great performance.

Warner Bros.

4. The Dark Knight Rises

July 1

The Dark Knight Rises is the most spectacular of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy — and the most divisive. You’ll definitely want to watch the first two excellent movies before diving into the explosive finale.

3. The Flash Season 8

July 7

One of the longest-running superhero shows on TV is still going strong. The latest season of The Flash hits Netflix just a week after it wraps up on The CW.

2. Resident Evil

July 14

1. Uncharted

July 15

After spending so long in development it really seemed like vaporware, Uncharted is finally coming to Netflix. Based on the wildly popular game series, it’s an unoriginal but fun treasure hunt with a likable lead in Tom Holland.
