It was recently announced that Netflix will be producing an animated adaptation of the Scott Pilgrim story, with all the cast members from Edgar Wright’s cult-classic set to reprise their roles. While we may be a significant amount of time away from the animated adaptation landing on Netflix, the timing of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World leaving Netflix couldn’t be more ironic.

King Kong (2005)

After the incredible success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson took on one of the most challenging projects of his career, adapting the classic story of King Kong for a modern audience. King Kong is criminally underrated, and one of the best action adventure movies of the 2000s. From its incredible cast to groundbreaking motion capture work, if it wasn’t for Kong, and Andy Serkis’ performance as the mountainous ape, we may never have seen the revival of the Planet of the Apes movies.

This isn’t the first time The Dark Knight is leaving the Netflix library, and neither is it the second, third, or even fourth time (it’s actually the seventh). However, no matter how many times it leaves the library it always manages to find its way back for a limited period of time, and as one of the best movies of the 21st century, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight will forever be a welcome readdition.

Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant were two of the biggest stars in the 90s, so it was only a matter of time before the pair were matched in a romantic comedy. Both actors have featured extensively in some of the most iconic romantic comedies of the 90s and early 2000s, but Notting Hill is up there with one of their very best.

Released just before the world was sent into lockdown, Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen was a throwback to some of his earliest films such as Snatch and Lockstock. As chance would have it, this is the second film on the list that’s leaving Netflix soon while the streaming service is currently working on adapting the film into an original series.

As far as franchise reboots go, the soft reboot of 21 Jump Street was a match made in heaven by pairing Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum together. The success of 21 Jump Street spawned an even wilder sequel, aptly named 22 Jump Street, which you can find on Netflix Canada.

Some roles are just perfect for actors, and there was no man more perfect for donning the iconic role of the swashbuckling vigilante Zorro than Antonio Banderas. Younger audiences will recognize Banderas as the voice of Puss N’ Boots, who has arguably become the most famous of the two iconic swashbucklers that Banderas has portrayed. However, the removal of The Mask of Zorro and The Legend of Zorro is a huge loss for the Netflix library.
