Hulu: What's New in July 2017

Here in Australia, July means plummeting temperatures and couch-surfing sessions hitting an all-time high. Thankfully, Hulu helps fill that extra couch time with some excellent viewing options this month. New series, old movies and a bunch of stuff in between, read on to discover the highlights.

Pure is the story of newly minted Mennonite pastor, Noah Funk, whose attempt to drive drug traffickers from the community results in him working for the very people he was trying to get rid of. In case you’re not sure, Mennonites are a Protestant sect, kind of like the Amish but with electricity and cars. Many Mennonites reside in Canada where Pure was filmed. Season 1 of the series streams from July 7. Stars Ryan Robbins (Arrow).

Keep an eye out for the season premiere of Midnight, Texas. A drama with fantasy elements, Midnight is a remote country town which doubles as a safe haven for those who are different. Based on the book series by Charlaine Harris whose other popular series was turned into TV’s True Blood, you can imagine that different probably means supernatural. When the regular world attempts to encroach, this band of misfits form an unlikely family bond. Starring Francois Arnaud (Blindspot) and Arielle Kebbel (The Vampire Diaries), catch it from July 25.

Somewhere Between also makes its season premiere this month. Starring Paula Patton, mother Laura Price knows her young daughter will be murdered. Though she doesn’t know by whom or why, Laura knows where, when and how it will happen and this 10-part series follows her desperate attempts to change her child’s horrific fate. It doesn’t sound like a barrel of laughs, but if you’re game, streaming kicks off on July 25.

If you’ve forgotten how Nicole Kidman (Lion) got her start in Hollywood, you should check out Dead Calm. Made in 1989 by director Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games) and also starring Sam Neill (Peaky Blinders), Kidman was young, freckled and wild of hair and her performance in this tense thriller reportedly caught the eye of Tom Cruise who wanted her in his next film (Days of Thunder). That film and their subsequent marriage were doomed to fail but Dead Calm was a critical success. Check it out from July 1.

And for more retro scares, don’t miss Roman Polanski’s 1968 classic, Rosemary’s Baby. Starring Mia Farrow as the titular Rosemary, trouble begins when she and her beau move into an apartment with some very odd neighbours. When Rosemary gets mysteriously knocked up, she becomes obsessed with keeping the baby safe. Babies and horror – always a fun combo! Enjoy the crazy from July 1.

And finally, for the Trekkies, get ready to binge hard on not one, not two but the first 9 original Star Trek movies (don't know why Star Trek: Nemesis is missing). Live long and prosper from July 1.
