What's New to Stream on Hulu for June 2020, and What's Leaving

From the highs of 'Dirty Dancing' to the lows of 'Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights!' It's all in this month's guide to what's new and worth watching on Hulu.

Hulu June

Hulu has been stuck in the third-place position when it comes to movie streaming behind Netflix and Amazon Prime because most people still see them strictly as a home for next-day television. They have movies too, though, and more than a few of them are gems that make Hulu a destination beyond last night’s TV shows.

The complete list of new movies and shows hitting Hulu this month — June 2020 — is below, but I wanted to highlight the best of the bunch along with several others worth seeking out.


Hulu Pick of the Month

Dave

“Pick” of the month usually refers, of course, to a single title, but I’m breaking with precedent this time to highlight two films of equal standing, themes, and value that together constitute my pick. The American President (1995) and Dave (1993) are both comedies with a dash of romance and a truckload of compassion for people. Their plots are different — the former sees a widowed president dating again, and the latter follows a lookalike who uses his brief time standing in for a sick president to change things for the better — but both offer us a glimpse of what it could be like to have a truly empathetic, intelligent, and motivated president leading our country. They’re also sweet, fun films, so why not make a double feature out of them!


New Movies About Real People

Shirley

One of last year’s sweeter films unsurprisingly stars Tom Hanks, and he’s playing the late, great Mr. Fred Rogers. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (premieres 6/2) sees him as an inspirational figure in the life of many, and there’s real heart and compassion running through the entire film. Josephine Decker’s Shirley (premieres 6/5) takes a more dramatically twisted path in offering a glimpse into acclaimed author Shirley Jackson’s life. I haven’t seen it yet, but with Elisabeth Moss and Michael Stuhlbarg, and Logan Lerman in the leads it’s one I’ll be watching soon.


A Bruce Willis Double Feature

Tears Of The Sun

Two movies starring Bruce Willis arrive on 6/19, and both remind of a time when he used to headline theatrical features before sinking into direct-to-video hell. Hart’s War (2002) sees prisoners of war dealing with the obvious predicament and a murder, while Tears of the Sun (2003) sees Willis lead a squad of soldiers into the Nigerian jungle. Both are quite good with the latter being far heavier on the action front. Curiously, both films also co-star Cole Hauser.


Horrors!

Crawl

It’s always the right time for monsters, creatures, and other nightmares, and Hulu has a few hitting this month that might be worth your time. First up is the latest entry in Hulu/Blumhouse’s monthly series, Into the Dark, and this time around it’s Good Boy starring Judy Greer as a woman whose anxiety dog is killing off the people causing her anxiety. Crawl (2019) comes up for air on June 18th and brings with it a terrifically entertaining time as alligators go to town on a small town. June 22nd brings the anthology XX (2017) which while a mixed bag — like all anthologies — features at least one thrilling little tale from director Roxanne Benjamin.
