Netflix usually updates its catalog every month, not only adding original titles but also some of the most well-known classics of cinema. July came with many new additions, including acclaimed cult movies.

Often, the streaming giant acquires broadcasting rights as part of its agreements with studios and distributors to expand its content offerings without the need for production.

From Easy A with Emma Stone to American Psycho with Christian Bale, the productions added to the platform are part of a long list of successes that have been praised by critics and viewers over time.
