What’s New on Hulu: July 2016

At the beginning of (and during) every month, Hulu adds new movies and TV shows to its library. We figure you might want to know about them. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on Hulu and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

British humor lessons: In the Loop (2009)

Before the era of Veep, Armando Iannucci took on British politics with his TV series The Thick of It and film In the Loop. The latter, which centers on the U.S. and Britain’s possible intervention in the Middle East, recruits James Gandolfini and Anna Chlumsky across from the likes of Peter Capaldi and Tom Hollander. As in any Iannucci joint, the dialogue is the star of the show: relentless, hilarious, and filthy. Available July 1.

A love triangle: Your Sister’s Sister (2011)

Lynn Shelton’s easygoing indie drama tracks the shifting dynamics between Mark Duplass and two sisters, played by Emily Blunt and Rosemarie DeWitt. Don’t worry: The film explains why the sisters have different accents, though it never does get into the details of why Blunt sounds kinda American. Available July 1.

These are the voyages: Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), Star Trek 11: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Star Trek 111: The Search for Spock (1984), Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989), Star Trek V1: The Undiscovered Country (1991), Star Trek 1X: Insurrection (1998)

After leaving Netflix, the Star Trek films are boldly going to Amazon and Hulu this month, with the exception of First Contact, Generations, and Nemesis, which appear to have been lost in cyberspace. Consider a Fourth of July weekend binge, or at least curling up with the likes of Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock. Available July 1.

Ah, New Yorkers: Difficult People (Season 2 premiere)(Hulu Original)

Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner continue to terrorize both New York and each other in Hulu’s irreverent original comedy. The second season offers a swath of guest stars, including Nathan Lane, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and seemingly, Pizza Rat. Man, I bet that guy’s pay per day on set is amazing. Available July 12.

The arrangements: Tiny Furniture (2010)

Lena Dunham broke out on the festival circuit with this divisive film, which, depending on your perspective, either perfectly distills a generation’s ennui, or simply gets drunk on the notion that it can. Like Girls, Tiny Furniture is deceptively better and wiser than it gets credit for, with filmmaking that’s just as precise as the dioramas in its title. Available July 1.
