7 Best New Movies to Watch on Peacock in July 2021

There's still plenty of movies and TV shows to stream elsewhere even though Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and HBO Max dominate the streaming world right now. Peacock, NBCUniversal's streaming service, has a pretty solid selection of movies and shows available to stream, and the new releases for July are really great. We've compiled a handy guide for the best movies available on Peacock in July 2021 whether you subscribe to the service or it's part of your streaming service. In the list below, you can find everything from Oscar-winning films to fun comedies. Enjoy your viewing!

The Harry Potter Franchise


The Harry Potter Franchise

I know you've seen these movies before - they're fantastic! Streaming options for Harry Potter will continue to shift over the next few years as NBCUniversal and Warner Bros. work out complicated licensing deals. Short and sweet, they're likely streaming on Peacock if Harry Potter movies are not on HBO Max this July. Among the best and most successful film franchises of all time, this film franchise is unique in that it follows the characters as they mature. As a kid's movie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets belongs to the children's genre, whereas Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince belongs to that of the teen genre. Almost anytime is a good time to wear these watches.

The Hunger Games Franchise

The Hunger Games Franchise

You can't go wrong with The Hunger Games if you're looking for a good YA binge. As director Gary Ross steered this sci-fi dystopian series into mature territory instead of trying to attract young viewers in the first film, the tone was set in a big way. In terms of blockbusters, thrillers, and romantic dramas, Catching Fire may be the best, but the two-part Mockingjay finale is a brilliant dystopian tale and feels quite different from the others, since the games have been left behind.

Do the Right Thing

Do the Right Thing

Watch Spike Lee's seminal 1989 film Do the Right Thing if you're in the mood for a more challenging movie that won't disappear when the credits roll. This film chronicles simmering racial tension between African Americans and Italian Americans in Brooklyn on a hot summer day. In this humorous and colorful tale, Lee brilliantly illustrates how casual racism can quickly turn deadly. Despite being controversial when it was released, it has aged beautifully and remains relevant today.

Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich is a somewhat inspirational drama that won Julia Roberts an Oscar. As a compelling and character-driven true-story drama, the film garnered numerous Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director (which Steven Soderbergh lost to himself for Traffic). A mother of three living on her own in 1993, Erin Brockovich went from being unemployed to working for a lawyer, then to getting involved in a major case against PG&E over its involvement in groundwater contamination. Brockovich fights tooth and nail for wronged people, and even though the premise sounds like a Lifetime Original Movie, Soderbergh keeps the characters grounded in genuine emotion to serve the material.

Fast Five


Fast Five

Fast Five is one of the best installments in the Fast & Furious franchise. Fast Five is also a great entry point into the Fast and Furious series if you haven't seen any of them. In 2011, the franchise moves away from being so car-focused and toward something more blockbuster-y with the action taking place in Rio, where Dom and his crew pull off a big heist. Dwayne Johnson enters the picture when Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs gets hot on Dom's trail. This one is a lot of fun.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army


Hellboy II: The Golden Army

The fantasy film Hellboy II: The Golden Army is a must-see for fantasy film fans. This sequel is enjoyable regardless of whether you've seen the first film, in which Guillermo del Toro shows off his full fantasy range. There are numerous fantastical creatures in the story as a long-dormant golden army is raised by an ancient prince who desires to rule the world. Despite their internal battles, Hellboy (Ron Perlman) and his team of supernatural crime-fighting figures stand in his way. A perfect concoction of humor, horror, action, and fantasy, The Hobbit will remember longingly for Guillermo del Toro's version.

Role Models


Role Models

Take a look at Role Models if you're looking for something to laugh about. During a mishap that forces them to do community service, Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott star in this 2008 comedy. When they are mismatched with a couple of children, they are introduced to LARP through a big-brother big-sister program. The director David Wain curbs some (but not all) of his more absurdist tendencies to craft something more commercial than, for example, Wet Hot American Summer's brilliant insanity.
