At the beginning of (and during) each month, Hulu adds new movies and TV shows its list of offerings. Below, you’ll find our June 2017 recommendations along with a full list of new titles. For more comprehensive coverage of the best TV shows and movies available on Hulu and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

If you’ve been missing a lot of trains lately:  Sliding Doors

Ever get a pair of sneakers and suddenly notice that everyone has that same pair of sneakers? In my experience, that’s what watching Sliding Doors is like: It’s a movie that lots of people you know have seen, but you’ll never notice until you see it yourself. Gwyneth Paltrow stars as a young woman in London who misses her carriage on the tube — or does she? After that moment at the station, the film cuts back and forth between two parallel timelines, one in which she made the train and another in which she did not. Sliding Doors is a clever, gentle, wistful little romance about what might have been.   Arrives July 9.

A fun thriller you probably missed: Nerve

Last year’s Nerve flew under the radar, which is a shame because it’s a tremendous amount of fun. It’s the story of two good-looking young people — played by Dave Franco and Emma Roberts — who get trapped in a game that pushes them to take on increasingly risky dares for cash and viral fame. It’s a thriller that engages with our cultural moment’s obsession with livestreaming and fleeting fame, delivering a taut, well-paced film that doesn’t try too hard to appeal to the Youths or clumsily condemn the culture it depicts. Arrives July 1.

Because an airport can be a really charming place: Up in the Air

Although it isn’t as magnetically watchable as his Thank You for Smoking nor as aggressively of-its-moment as Juno, director Jason Reitman’s Up in the Air still holds up rather well. Ostensibly a romantic comedy about people who live transient lives on the road (but not-so-secretly a black comedy about the American economy), George Clooney plays a guy who travels around the country and fires people. Meanwhile, Anna Kendrick plays a talented woman whose ideas may, one day, put Clooney out of a job. Throw in the excellent Vera Farmiga, and you have a funny, warm movie about people slowly try to ground themselves. Arrives July 1.
