Five new titles arrived on Netflix in the United States for July 16th including a couple of must-watch movies and a few new Netflix Original titles. We’ll cover those and what’s trending on Netflix for July 16th below.

Before we get into the new arrivals for July 16th, there’s a couple of removals to cover too. Forks Over Knives and Jack of all Trades have both been removed from Netflix today.

As we hit the mid-point of July, don’t forget there’s still plenty to look forward to for the end of the month and we’ve started listing what’s due out in August 2020 too.

Devil’s Gate (2017)

Genre: Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Director: Clay Staub
Cast: Amanda Schull, Shawn Ashmore, Milo Ventimiglia, Bridget Regan

Our first movie highlight today features some big names actors but as with most films in the genre, has a mixed review score currently sitting at 5.1/10 at the time of publishing.

It’s about an FBI agent and a sheriff looking for a missing woman and the investigation turning towards her husband when things start to take a dramatic and dark turn.


Fatal Affair (2020)

Genre: Drama
Director: Peter Sullivan
Cast: Nia Long, Omar Epps, Stephen Bishop, Aubrey Cleland
Runtime: 89 mins

If you love your obsession thrillers, Fatal Affair should be next up in your Netflix queue. It reunites Nia Long and Omar Epps for their second movie together.

The movie will likely feel familiar to anyone that checked out Secret Obsession starring Brenda Song added to Neflix last year given it shares the same writer and director.

Early reviews are mixed with the majority of criticism targeting its rather formulaic structure.


Pride & Prejudice (2005)

Genre: Drama, Romance
Director: Joe Wright
Cast: Keira Knightley, Talulah Riley, Rosamund Pike, Jena Malone
Writer: Jane Austen (novel), Deborah Moggach (screenplay)
Runtime: 129 min

If you’re looking for something literary and romantic to dive into this weekend, look no further. We’re sure you know what happens in this classic tale by now, but if not, here’s a brief synopsis…

Boy meets girl in Regency England but unfortunately, they don’t quite hit it off. In fact, his prideful behaviour and her personal prejudices spark instant dislike between them. With four sisters, Elizabeth Bennett must marry well. Mr Darcy, on the other hand, has plenty of money, and needs a respectable wife to protect his aristocratic bloodline.

Starring Kiera Knightly as Elizabeth Bennet, and Matthew Macfadyen as Mr Darcy.
