Kiefer Sutherland's CBS hit has been on Netflix for a while, but this time the format has been transposed to South Korea, where an explosion at the National Assembly kills the entire Cabinet and the president ... except for the environmental secretary.

Speaking of "Stranger Things," if you're a fan of star David Harbour you'll get a kick out of this mockumentary, in which he uncovers lost footage from his father's televised stage play. Look for special guests including Alfred Molina and Kate Berlant. (July 16)

"Red Sea Diving Resort"Netflix

"The Red Sea Diving Resort"

Inspired by true-life rescue missions, the film tells the tale of international agents and Ethiopians who used a deserted holiday retreat in Sudan to smuggle refugees to Israel in the 1980s. And it's got a great cast: Chris Evans, Michael Kenneth Williams, Greg Kinnear and Ben Kingsley. (July 31)

Certified Classics


"Caddyshack" (1980); "Caddyshack 2" (1988)

Fore! It's time to check into the Bushwood Country Club for a swinging good time, but watch your candy bars in the pool. Completists will be happy to know that the sequel is also coming to Netflix, but we think you'll have more fun singing Chevy Chase's love song to his date from No. 1 than spending much time with it. (July 1)

"Mary Poppins Returns"Disney

Last year's charming return to No. 17 Cherry Tree Lane gives Lin-Manuel Miranda a Cockney accent and Emily Blunt an umbrella that carries her back to the Banks homestead to make things right. (July 9)
