July Streaming Guide: What to Watch on Disney+, HBO Max, Netflix, Hulu, and More

The Best Streaming TV for July 2021 from Men's Journal
© Marvel Films 2020/Jay Maidment

It’s a tale as old as time: What to watch? Okay, maybe it’s just a question we find ourselves asking in recent years since the explosion of streaming services. In July 2021, there’s no shortage of stellar shows, movies, and series.

 

 

Black Widow has an adventure without the Avengers, LeBron James gets animated, Ted Lasso gets his kicks, and much more as the streaming services bring the fireworks for July.

What To Watch on Disney+: July 2021

Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) finally gets her due in Black Widow (Disney +, July 9). Taking place in between the events of Avengers: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, this pulse-pounding prequel finds our angst-ridden action heroine reconnecting with her “family” of assassins (David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, and Florence Pugh) as they stave off super-spies trained by their old boss Dreykov (Ray Winstone). An action-packed experience that passes the baton to Pugh, Black Widow also honors honors the emotional aftermath of Natasha’s death in Avengers: Endgame. (Be sure to hang in there for the pivotal post-credits scene!)

What To Watch on HBO Max: July 2021

LeBron James once again follows in Michael Jordan’s high-flying footsteps in Space Jam: A New Legacy (HBO Max, July 16). The stand-alone story follows LeBron and his on-screen son Dom (Cedric Joe)—who dreams of being a video game developer rather than a basketball player—as they get trapped in Serververse, a virtual reality space ruled by a rogue A.I. named Al G. Rhythm (Don Cheadle). To save his son and get home safely, LeBron must lead Bugs Bunny (voiced by Jeff Bergman), Lola Bunny (Zendaya), and the rest of the Tune Squad to victory over the Goon Squad, a super-team of monstrous digital avatars based on pro basketball stars (a winged Anthony Davis becomes The Brow). While comparisons to the beloved 1996 Space Jam starring Bill Murray are as inevitable as comparisons of Lebron and MJ, Space Jam: A New Legacy stands out by having our hero interact with a who’s who of characters from the Warner Bros. catalog: Expect appearances from King Kong, Wonder Woman, and It’s Pennywise the Clown as LeBron blazes trails through Oz, Westeros, and the Matrix. With a fun cameo from Michael B. Jordan (get it?), it’s a game worth getting into!

What To Watch on Netflix: July 2021

The Professional meets Charlie’s Angels in Gunpowder Milkshake (Netflix, July 14). This stylish shoot ‘em up follows Sam (Guardians of the Galaxy’s Karen Gillan), a professional killer who was raised by crime syndicate The Firm after her assassin mother Scarlet (Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey) left her behind when she was 12. But when Sam herself is targeted by the Firm after she refuses to kill a child (Chloe Coleman), she must reunite with her estranged mom to take on the bad guys (including kingpin Paul Giamatti)—and they round up a posse of hitwomen called the Librarians (Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, and Carla Gugino) to help them out.

What To Watch on Apple TV+: July 2021

It’s Major League by way of the Premier League: Season two of Ted Lasso (Apple TV+, July 23) finds the affable American football coach (Jason Sudeikis) resorting to tough love tactics (beyond biscuit-bribery), in order to inspire his English soccer squad AFC Richmond. Enter “Led Lasso,” a meaner alter-ego who might inspire memories of The Office boss Michael Scott’s goofily badass persona “Prison Mike.” It’s easy to see why Sudeikis’s sweet-spirited performance swept the SAG, Critics Choice, and Golden Globe Awards—his character is a charming alternative to TV’s onslaught of anti-heroes. But must nice guys finish last? We can’t wait to find out.

What To Watch on Hulu: July 2021

The debut documentary from The Roots’ drummer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, Summer of Soul (Hulu, July 2) chronicles the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival, an epic concert series that was unfortunately eclipsed by Woodstock being held that same summer. Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight and the Pips, and B.B. King were among the all-star line-up of performers during the six weeks of shows at Marcus Garvey Park. Although more than 300, 000 people attended the so-called “Black Woodstock,” the revolution was not televised: Much of exhilarating live footage will be seen here for the first time in more than 50 years. But this documentary is more than just a backstage pass, it’s also an insightful exploration of the cultural context of the tumultuous times the music was born out of. Summer of Soul restores the Harlem Cultural Festival’s rightful place in music history—and you can dance to it.
