As summer begins to roll in, Apple TV Plus is turning up the temperature with a pretty decent lineup of new movies and shows for July. We have a mystery thriller set in Japan (and it’s like a darker version of “Big Hero 6”) and Natalie Portman’s drama about an unsolved murder. Apple TV Plus is one of the best streaming services, so it’s no surprise that we’re getting more quality content.

So, whether you're taking in the heat outside or chilling in the cool indoors, this month's offerings promise to keep you entertained. Here are all the new movies and shows hitting the streamer in July.

"Sunny” looks to be an interesting thriller that I’m personally excited to watch. It stars Rashida Jones as Suzie, an American woman living in Kyoto, Japan. Her life is turned upside down when her husband and son disappear in a plane crash with no explanation. In the wake of this tragedy, she is given Sunny (voiced by Joanna Sotomura), an advanced domestic robot created by her husband's electronics company (that she didn’t even know about). 

Initially, Suzie is resistant to Sunny's presence, but they eventually form a unique bond. Together, they delve into the mystery behind her family's disappearance and eventually discover a darker reality that challenges Suzie's understanding of the world she knew before her close ones disappeared.

Moving on to the highly anticipated reimagining of the 1981 cult classic movie “Time Bandits."
