What’s on Netflix Singapore in July 2022
A live-action television adaptation of Resident Evil and Volume Two of Stranger Things 4 are part of Netflix’s line-up in July.
From enchanting animated flicks to hair-raising horror series, Netflix Singapore returns this July with a variety of new offerings that will cater to everyone’s taste.
Here are five shows to look forward to on Netflix this coming July:
1. Stranger Things 4: Volume 2
Turn your lights on and duck under your sheets! Netflix’s astronomically successful science-fiction horror series is set to return with two more episodes to round off its fourth season.
Things do not look good for the Hawkins crew as Eleven struggles to regain her telekinetic abilities while the others are stuck in a nightmarish hellscape — filled with bloodthirsty Demobats — known as the Upside Down.
The trailer teases Eleven leaving Dr Brenner’s lab to return to her friends, Eddie’s (epic) guitar solo amid the desolation and more of this season’s primary antagonist, Vecna.
The eighth episode will be an hour long while the ninth episode will run for two and a half hours, so you should brace yourself for an action-packed finale which delivers on the emotional front as well.
Stranger Things 4: Volume 2 will creep its way to Netflix on Jul 1.
2. Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight
Everybody is Kung Fu fighting in the all-new animated Kung Fu Panda series which will see the return of the beloved giant furry anthropomorphic Dragon Warrior, Po.
The show will follow Po as he embarks on a globe-trotting journey for redemption where he partners up with The Wandering Blade — a no-frills knighted warrior who is determined to achieve her goals.
The oddly mismatched pair must work together to stop a pair of weasels who have set their sights upon a collection of four powerful weapons, and perhaps save the world in the process.
Jack Black reprises his role as Po while James Hong comes back as Mr Ping, Po’s doting adoptive father.
Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight will premiere on Netflix on Jul 14.
3. The Gray Man
Buckle up, for you are about to be introduced to Netflix’s most expensive film ever made, with a product budget of US$200 million (S$277 million).
Based on the best-selling book series by Mark Greaney, The Gray Man is a spy thriller film centred around Court Gentry, a former Central Intelligence Agency operative who is now an assassin going by the alias — The Gray Man.
After accidentally uncovering the agency’s dark secrets, he is betrayed by them and becomes a fugitive. Lloyd Hansen, his psychopathic former colleague and other international assassins are sent to hunt him down.
The film is stacked with a star-studded cast of Regé-Jean Page, Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans and is by Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame’s Russo Brothers.
The Gray Man will be available on Netflix come Jul 22.
4. The Sea Beast
Sail on an adventure with Netflix’s latest in-house animated film, The Sea Beast.
The sea escapade tells the story of Jacob Holland, a legendary sea monster hunter who is on a mission with his crew to dispatch the Red Bluster, a terrifying sea monster.
His plans are turned upside down as he gets lost at sea with Hator Maisie, an orphan whose parents were apparently killed during a monster attack. Things become more complicated when the girl befriends the giant creature.
The film is directed by Chris Williams, who helmed Disney’s Big Hero 6 and worked on the likes of Moana and Bolt.
The Sea Beast will arrive on Netflix on Jul 8.
5. Resident Evil
Resident Evil, one of the most successful long-running video game franchises, is receiving its first live-action television adaption.
The horror series will span two different timelines — the first which follows Jade and Billie Wesker as they move to New Raccoon City, a manufactured, corporate town and discovers that there is more than meets the eye with the town… and their father.
Fast forward to more than a decade into the future, the T-Virus outbreak has reduced human civilisation to less than 15 million refugees who reside in walled city states while more than six billion monstrous creatures roam the planet. Jade is now grown but she is conflicted by secrets from her past about her sister and father.
The series is developed by Andrew Dabb who was a co-executive producer and writer for Supernatural, another horror series.
Resident Evil can be streamed on Netflix from Jul 14 onwards.
