Movie Trilogies on Netflix in July 2024: Back to the Future, Spider-Man, & More

Summer is here, and Netflix has a fantastic lineup of new releases for July, offering a mix of original content and beloved favorites. Among these releases, several movie trilogies are making their way to the streaming platform, ready to entertain viewers all month long.

One of the highlights is the addition of numerous standalone movies. On July 3, viewers can enjoy Beverly Hills Cop: Alex F, featuring Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley. The film delivers humor and action, recapturing the charm of the original series.

Further adding to the diverse selection, the romantic comedy Find Me Falling, starring Harry Connick Jr., is set for release on July 19. Families can look forward to films like Matilda, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, and Uncle Buck, making it a month full of enjoyable options for all ages. Horror enthusiasts have their fair share of titles too, with releases such as Jigsaw, American Psycho, Annabelle, and the comedic Zombieland.

The sci-fi comedy classic Back to the Future trilogy, created by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, is now available for streaming. This beloved series follows the adventures of teenager Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and his eccentric friend Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown (Christopher Lloyd) as they navigate time travel mishaps in Hill Valley, California. With its engaging storylines and nostalgic appeal, this trilogy promises a great family movie marathon.

On July 1, Netflix welcomed Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey McGuire. This iconic superhero series chronicles the trials of Peter Parker as he balances life as an ordinary teenager and a crime-fighting hero. The trilogy dives into his friendships, romance with Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst), and epic battles against villains like Green Goblin (Willem Defoe) and Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina).

For fans of darker tales, the Fifty Shades of Grey series is another notable addition. The erotic romance, based on E.L. James’ novels, stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Doran as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. The first film is available for streaming, with Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed joining on July 16. Despite mixed reviews from critics, the films have a dedicated fanbase and have grossed over $1.32 billion worldwide.

In the realm of supernatural horror, The Conjuring films are also on Netflix. These movies dramatize the real-life investigations of paranormal experts Ed and Lorraine Warren. The series includes The Conjuring, which follows the terrifying experiences of the Perron Family, and The Conjuring 2 that delves into the Enfield poltergeist case. The latest installment, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, revolves around a notorious 1981 murder trial. Additionally, The Nun, a spiritual spin-off from The Conjuring 2, is available to stream.

Another gripping horror trilogy, Fear Street, based on R.L. Stein’s books, is perfect for those seeking an old-school slasher experience with supernatural twists. These Netflix originals, released in 2021, are set in different time periods—1994, 1978, and 1666—and revolve around a group of teens battling a curse in their town of Shadyside. Notably, a fourth film, Fear Street: Prom Queen, has been announced for March 2024.

Fans of the Karate Kid series will be delighted with the upcoming sixth season of Cobra Kai, continuing the legacy of the original 1980s films. Premiering on July 18, part one of the final season sees Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprising their roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. Exploring Johnny’s perspective, Cobra Kai delves into his decision to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo and rekindles his rivalry with Daniel, providing a nostalgic yet refreshing narrative.

Additionally, Netflix features the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan, offering a modern take on the classic story.
