New Netflix movies: June 14, 2024 update

Tom Power, senior entertainment reporter

This week’s article addition is Ultraman: Rising, a new Netflix animated action-adventure film that’s perfect for kids and adults alike. We’ve removed Mother of the Bride and Thelma The Unicorn, too, as they’re no longer considered new.

Looking for all of the new Netflix movies that have arrived since late May? You’ve come to the right place. In this guide, you’ll find a comprehensive round-up of the biggest new movies to join Netflix‘s back catalog, including the streamer’s original offerings and the odd critically-acclaimed/popular licensed flick.

You won’t find every single new Netflix film on this list – you should read our new on Netflix in June 2024 piece for a full breakdown if that’s what you’re after. Instead, you’ll find a list of new movies that we’d highly recommend watching for good (and the occasionally bad) reason.

New Netflix movies: June

Ultraman: Rising

Release date: June 14
Runtime: 121 minutes
Age rating: PG (US) / PG (UK)
Cast: Christopher Sean, Gedde Watanabe, Tamlyn Tomita, Keone Young, and Julia Harriman
Director: Shannon Tindle
Rotten Tomatoes (RT) score: 76% (critics); TBC (audience)

Based on Tsuburaya Productions’ popular Ultraman franchise, this family-friendly flick aims to follow in the footsteps of Nimona, The Sea Beast, and other animated Netflix Originals with a successful streaming run. Sean voices Ken Sato, who reluctantly returns home to adopt the Ultraman mantle amid rising monster attacks on the Japanese city of Tokyo. Unbeknownst to Sato, though, he’ll soon adopt a baby kaiju of his own – a life-altering event that’ll force him to simultaneously protect his hometown and said baby monster from nefarious individuals.

Ultraman: Rising isn’t as good as the aforementioned films, but it’s still one of the better new Netflix movies we’ve seen in a while. If nothing else, it’s a fun-filled family adventure flick with tons of heart that’ll keep the kids entertained for a few hours.

Hit Man

Release date: June 7
Runtime: 115 minutes
Age rating: 16-plus (US) / 15 (UK)
Cast: Glen Powell, Adria Arjona, Austin Amelio, Retta, Molly Bernard and Sanjay Rao
Director: Richard Linklater
RT score: 97% (critics); 93% (audience)

One of the best-rated new Netflix movies we’ve seen in a long time, this black comedy romantic thriller is a twisty, thrills-a-minute, and steamy flick that’ll appeal to all kinds of genre fans. Powell plays Gary, an unassuming professor who discovers he has a hidden knack for portraying fake hit men. However, while his new lifestyle is full of perks, when he’s hired by a mysterious client (Arjona) for a seemingly run of the mill assignment, things quickly take a turn for the silly and spectacular.

A flick inspired by true events, Hit Man is a, well, certified hit. Armed with potent on-screen chemistry from its two leads, and with mastermind director Richard Linklater behind the camera, we shouldn’t have expected anything other than a terrific, captivating, and funny film that’s done and dusted in less than two hours.

Release date: June 1
Runtime: 118 minutes
Age rating: 16-plus (US) / 15 (UK)
Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, and Benedict Cumberbatch
Director: Sam Mendes
RT score: 88% (critics); 88% (audience)

Another harrowing depiction of the horrors and futility of war, Sam Mendes’ 1917 movie is an emotionally raw, suspense-driven film that’s technically impressive in its design. MacKay stars as Lance Corporal Will Schofield, who’s tasked with delivering an vital message to the UK forces’ front line in a bid to stave off a doomed offensive. Chapman also features heavily as Schofield’s fellow soldier Tom Blake.

You’ll remember 1917 for its thrilling and spine-chilling ‘oner’ sequence in its final act, but there are so many other memorable (not to mention hard-hitting) scenes in arguably Mendes’ best feature film yet. An emotionally charged, heart-pounding, and  tension-riddled movie that’ll leave you numb.

Godzilla Minus One

Release date: June 1
Age rating: 
PG-13 (US) / 12 (UK)
Runtime: 125 minutes
Main cast: Ryûnosuke Kamiki, Minami Hamabe, Munetaka Aoki, Hidetaka Yoshioka, and  Yuki Yamada
Director: Takashi Yamazaki
RT score: 98% (critics); 98% (audience)

One of 2023’s best movies, Godzilla Minus One took the legendary kaiju back to its post-war Japanese roots in an emotionally torturous drama that cements Godzilla‘s latest big-screen showing as one of the best in the titanic monster’s illustrious history. Seen through the eyes of a traumatized kamikaze pilot (Kamiki), Minus One pits the merciless Godzilla in a battle against the Asian island nation as its population desperately grapples with and tries to survive a wave of attacks from the titular titan. 

Releasing to mixed reviews in Japan, Godzilla Minus One was hailed as a masterclass in filmmaking upon its launch in western regions. Park everything you expect from a Godzilla film (including his recent MonsterVerse films) and settle in for a gut-punching drama that peppers its plot with destructive, high-stakes action, rich social commentary on the cost of war and survivor’s guilt, and what an amazing sci-fi horror can look like on a shoestring budget.

New Netflix movies: May


Release date: May 24
Runtime: 120 minutes
Age rating: PG-13 (US) / 12 (UK)
Cast: Jennifer Lopez, Simu Liu, Sterling K. Brown, and Mark Strong
Director: Brad Peyton
RT score: 18% (critics); 46% (audience)

After the mixed reception that her last Netflix film – 2023’s The Mother – received, Jennifer Lopez would’ve been hoping for better with her latest flick Atlas.

Unfortunately, critics and general viewers haven’t been impressed by her new sci-fi action thriller, either. The flick, which see J-Lo play a misanthropic data analyst who has to team up with an AI (in a giant, Titanfall-like mech, no less) to hunt down a rogue robot (played by Shang-Chi and Barbie‘s Liu) who wants to wipe out humanity, is all style and very little substance. Indeed, Atlas‘ official trailer made it look like another generic Terminator clone and that’s what we’ve been gifted here.

Want a better J-Lo film to watch? Try one of these 6 great Jennifer Lopez-starring films, rather than force yourself to sit through two hours of subpar sci-fi.
