Marvel fans may want to give Captain America: Civil War another watch before it is taken down at the end of the month, and it’s not the only comic book or superhero movie that will be leaving. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is also on the way out this June, as is James Gunn’s Super.

15 Men In Black

Family favorite Men In Black was the film to launch the franchise, which continued with Men In Black II, Men In Black III, and the animation Men In Black: The Series. The original film stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as agents in a government organization devoted to monitoring extraterrestrial life on Earth - and there are a lot more aliens on the planet than most people think! A fun action/comedy favorite for the whole family, a Netflix rewatch will be perfect prep for Chris Hemsworth's reboot.

14 8 Mile

Eminem 8 Mile

Rapper Eminem stars in this film loosely based on his own life, and his early attempts to break into the industry through underground rap battles. Unsurprisingly, 8 Mile is heavily influenced and driven by the music, and the rap battles themselves are some of the best moments in this gritty yet energizing offering.

13 Gridiron Gang

The Rock in Gridiron Gang

Fans of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will be sad to lose Gridiron Gang from Netflix; inspiring sports action film starring the man himself as Sean Porter, a man who wanted to make a difference in the lives of juvenile offenders by teaching them to play football. Based on the true story of the Kilpatrick Mustangs, the film also features footage from the documentary about the team.

Heath Ledger, Matt Damon and Lena Headey star in The Brothers Grimm, a fantasy action flick about the famed brothers who spin fairy tales. The two Grimm brothers in this world are charlatans, con-men who stage supernatural events in order to come to the rescue - until they come up against real magic, and have to learn how to vanquish dark forces for real.

Sandra Bullock in While You Were Sleeping

The mid-nineties rom-com While You Were Sleeping is a must-watch for Sandra Bullock fans.

Leaving Netflix: June 1

7 Bonnie & Clyde

Bonnie and Clyde

This ultimate cinema classic isn’t leaving Netflix until the second week of June, so there is no excuse not to watch it! Loosely based on the true story of criminals in love, Bonnie & Clyde is a film that introduced the ultimate anti-heroes and re-defined violence on the big screen… and while it’s far from the bloodbaths that we have grown to accept in film today, it’s a must-watch for any cinephile.

Leaving Netflix: June 10

6 The Giver

The Giver

This adaptation of Lois Lowry’s young adult novel The Giver may not have won the kind of critical praise it was hoping for, but it’s still worth watching for fans of the book. Set in a perfect, colorless, sterile version of utopia, it centers on a young man chosen to become the new Giver, the keeper of memories for the community. As he trains, however, he starts to see color in the world - and to challenge the ideals of perfection it upholds.

Leaving Netflix: June 15

5 The Great Gatsby

Another literary adaptation, The Great Gatsby stars Leonardo DiCaprio and is directed by the inimitable Baz Luhrmann, with his usual love of complex and stunning visuals and musical scenes. The story of doomed romance in the roaring twenties may not be his best-loved film, but it will satisfy any Luhrmann fan.

Leaving Netflix: June 15

4 Super

Before director James Gunn joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, he tackled the superhero genre with Super. This hilarious flick about a man who decides to turn himself into a superhero… despite having no powers, and being pretty darn terrible when it comes to fighting crime. Dark, bloody, and absolutely brilliant, Super has become a modern cult classic.

Leaving Netflix: June 16

3 Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown

Anthony Bourdain

Seasons 1 through 8 of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown are leaving Netflix this month, but there’s still time to binge this foodie series about the famous chef as he travels the world to explore the food and culture of various different places.

Leaving Netflix: June 16

2 Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

The follow up to 2005’s Sin City, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For uses the same striking monochromatic color palette, with splashes of brightness used to add a little extra drama. Expect the same kind of graphic sex and violence as the original, with some of the original cast returning, and a whole host of new faces making their way through the city of sin. Expected to start a franchise, the film disappointed some fans, but is still worth checking out if only for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's sequence.

Leaving Netflix: June 22

1 Captain America: Civil War

Finally, bid farewell to one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe offerings at the end of the month, as Captain America: Civil War leaves Netflix. This ensemble film pits the heroes of the Marvel universe against each other while also introducing Spider-Man and Black Panther. Expect the usual action-packed fight sequences and some solid set-up for this year’s MCU offerings, including Avengers: Infinity War and the upcoming Ant-Man And The Wasp (which directly follows on from Civil War).
