At the end of each month, Netflix removes a bunch of third-party content due to expired licencing. In May 2019, the list of departing movies and TV shows has ballooned to nearly 100 – including stone-cold classics like Raiders Of The Lost Ark and The Warriors.
Here’s everything that will be leaving Netflix Australia this week – watch them while you still can!
Earlier in the month, we listed all the movies and TV shows that Netflix was removing from its service. As we warned at the time, the list was far from comprehensive. Over the next few days, the service will be giving the boot to 52 extra movies and TV shows. (That’s in addition to more than 50 that were deleted earlier in the month.)
Read on for the full list of causalities. We’ve included the expiration dates so you know precisely how long you have to watch them and trailers to our personal recommendations.
If you’ve never seen The Warriors or Raiders Of The Lost Ark you need to sort that out before May 31. Other departing movies worth watching include The Great Wall, 127 Hours, Dean and Black Swan. (Date Movie, meanwhile, can definitely be avoided.)
