Netflix to lose ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘Transformers’ in September
Netflix has decided not to renew their US agreement with Epix cable network, which means the streaming service will lose some popular movies this September.
Among the high profile movies leaving are: Hunger Games: Catching Fire, World War Z and Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Netflix says in their press release, if you want to watch those movies, now is the time.
Here’s what’s coming up in the next few months on Netflix:
In October – Beasts of No Nation, an unflinching war drama from Emmy Award winning director, Cary Fukunaga, director of True Detective, and Golden Globe winner, Idris Elba, star of Luther and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Also in December – Sofia Coppola directs Bill Murray in a form-bending holiday classic-to-be A Very Murray Christmas.
