It’s the last full week of June, but if you’re a subscriber to Netflix, there is still at least one big movie to get excited for before July’s releases roll around. So if you missed it in the theaters, you have a chance to watch Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

That’s right, on Wednesday, Into the Spider-Verse arrives on Netflix, and the animated film is one of the most enjoyable origin stories to come out of superhero movies. It follows Miles Morales, a kid from Brooklyn who gets bit by a radioactive spider, develops super-powers, then realizes there are more spider-powered beings hanging about. In her review, GameSpot’s Meg Downey said, “It manages to blow right past the dangers of sinking into after school special territory by believing wholeheartedly in its own message and delivering it with appropriately genuine stakes. The end result is an instant animated classic, and, with any luck, the first of many of its kind.”

There are a few returning originals to check out as well. Dope returns on Friday for a third season, along with Instant Hotel: Season 2, but if you’re into anime, you’ll probably want to check out 7Seeds. The Netflix original follows a group of young adults who were chosen to help humanity survive on a planet that’s completely changed. Also recently released on Netflix was Neon Genesis Evangelion, and the streaming service made a few changes to the original, like switching some of the music and cutting out some other things for unknown reasons.

Below, you’ll find everything coming to Netflix this week. And next week, the show everyone has been waiting for finally arrives. On Thursday, July 4, Season 3 of Netflix’s acclaimed series Stranger Things returns. GameSpot’s Chris E. Hayner and Dan Auty recently went through the first and second season to give you a heads up of where everyone left off, so you’re all caught up for Season 3.
