Of course, there is always the option to grab one of the best VPNs on the market to take advantage of your favourite streaming services wherever you are in the world, or just generally enhance your online privacy. Whatever your needs, they're covered. Now onto the main event, head below to find out the top new movies to watch on Netflix for July 2023.
They Cloned Tyrone
Netflix's tentpole release for the month is They Cloned Tyrone, a sci-fi comedy-mystery from Juel Taylor in his directional debut with a lot of buzz behind it. Starring John Boyega, Teyonah Parris and Jamie Foxx, the unlikely trio is thrust into a series of eerie events that puts them on the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy. The trailer gives big Black Mirror vibes, with Taylor describing the film as "If The Truman Show drank a bottle of vodka, what would the outcome be?" (via Empire). It's set to be a rollercoaster once it debuts later this month.
They Cloned Tyrone will be available to stream on Netflix from July 21st, 2023.
Mom and Dad
Everyone needs a little Nicholas Cage in their lives and this black comedy horror from Brian Taylor delivers a ridiculous 83 minutes of madness that never lets up. The premise: parents across the country suddenly develop an insatiable urge to murder their offspring with a teenage girl and her little brother trying to survive the onslaught for 24 hours. It's extremely bloody with a great campy style and fun dynamic between Cage and co-star, Selma Blair. If you enjoy the likes of Happy Death Day or Freaky, you can't go wrong with Mom and Dad.
Mom and Dad is currently available to stream on Hulu in the US.
How to Train Your Dragon 2
Something for the kids that is still entertaining enough for the parents. The How to Train Your Dragon trilogy is brilliant from start to end with the CGI fantasy films providing plenty of laughs and a surprising amount of heart. Picking up five years on from the original, Hiccup and his dragon, Toothless, come across an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new dragons before soon discovering that a ruthless warlord and dragon hunter is assembling an army of the creatures to take over the world. With a voice cast made up of Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Kit Harington, Jonah Hill, and Djimon Hounson, the HTTYD series sits near the very top for quality when it comes to animated movies.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is currently available to stream on Peacock in the US.
