Way back in 2012 (or at least it feels way back), Netflix and Disney struck a deal for all of Disney’s movies — including Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm — to stream exclusively on Netflix Instant. According to the terms of their agreement, the deal wouldn’t kick in until 2016, which just so happens to be the year in which we are currently living. As announced today, Netflix will officially begin streaming Disney films in September, but that doesn’t mean the studio’s entire library will magically appear in your Instant browser.
Whether you’re looking to rent or own, there’s plenty of great stuff hitting DVD and Blu-ray next month.

For those in need of genre thrills, 10 Cloverfield Lane and Midnight Special are also hitting shelves next month. For all those titles and more, dig into our guide to June’s new DVD and Blu-ray releases.
Akiva Goldsman’s screenplay for The Dark Tower movie has been floating around for some time now, so if you’re a particularly curious fan, chances are you’re already aware that the adaptation is going to be a bit…different from Stephen King’s version. Just how different remains to be seen, as director Nikolaj Arcel and Anders Thomas Jensen reportedly revised the Goldsman draft before filming. But if you were expecting a faithful adaptation of The Gunslinger…well, perhaps you should adjust your expectations.
By now you should know better than to sleep on that Amazon Prime account and all the new titles added to their streaming service each month.

Read on for our guide to the new titles coming to Amazon Prime Instant Video next month.

One of the most compelling actresses in the world is about to take on one of the most compelling true stories of all time, which makes this movie an instant must-see. Helen Mirren is closing a deal to play Sarah Winchester in a new supernatural thriller based on the unnervingly strange story of the heir to the famed rifle manufacturing fortune. Simply titled Winchester, the project comes from the directing duo behind Daybreakers and Predestination.
A biography told in graphic novel form is far from typical, but then again, so was Andre Roussimoff, the pro-wrestling legend better known to fans as Andre the Giant. The 2015 graphic novel Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven will serve as the inspiration for the late wrestler’s big screen biopic, with his daughter Robin Christensen-Roussimoff serving as consultant on the project.

Warner Bros. has announced release dates for two of their upcoming adaptations / reboots, adding both films — along with an untitled mystery project — to their 2017 slate. First up is CHiPs, Dax Shepard’s new action-comedy based on the classic ’80s TV series, starring Shepard and Michael Peña in the leading roles. Next is It, the long-developing and slightly-delayed adaptation of Stephen King’s beloved horror novel, which became the subject of some minor controversy following director Cary Fukunaga’s departure.

And it’s a big one. Bigger than Thanos…in size, anyway.
