Mission: Impossible movies

Just in time for the newly released Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One trailer, Netflix is releasing Mission: Impossible, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and Mission: Impossible II. Fans can spend the month binging their favorite Tom Cruise action flicks starting on June 1.


On June 3, Netflix will pull out all the stops for action fans with Interceptor. The movie follows military captain JJ Collins, played by Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky. Collins is tasked with preventing a former US military officer’s evil plan.


On June 8, streamers can add Adam Sandler’s Hustle to their list of best movies on Netflix. The basketball drama stars Sandler as a washed-up basketball scout looking for a way to get back into the game. When he discovers an incredibly talented street ball player in Spain, he works to prove that both he and his newfound basketball star can make it in the NBA.

Netflix Is a Joke: The Festival

For anyone who wants to compliment the sunny weather with some light-hearted comedy, Netflix has you covered in June. The streaming service will release comedy specials from its 11-day Netflix Is a Joke Festival throughout the month. The specials include Bill Burr Presents: Friends Who Kill on June 6, That’s My Time with David Letterman on June 7, Amy Schumer’s Parental Advisory on June 11, Pete Davidson Presents: The Best Friends on June 13, and Snoop Dogg’s F*cn Around Comedy Special on June 16.

Inspired by true events, the movie stars Eliane Umuhire, Charmaine Bingwa, Ella Cannon, Bola Koleosho, and Tongayi Chirisa.


Halftime follows the life and career of global superstar Jennifer Lopez. The movie highlights Lopez’s 2020 Super Bowl performance but its reach is far beyond just a single performance.

Halftime will premiere at the Tribeca Festival on June 8 and will be available to stream on Netflix on June 14.
