5 of my favorite Wes Anderson movies are leaving Hulu in July 2024 (1)

Out of all the major contemporary movie makers, Wes Anderson stands out for his picturesque cinematography, niche storylines and recognizable ensemble casts. But, unfortunately, five of the best Wes Anderson movies are set to be removed from Hulu this month.

As part of everything leaving Hulu in July 2024, these five Anderson favorites will leave the platform on July 31, so there's still a few weeks to catch them. Each has its own story and unique characters, but they all share that same 'Andersonian' quirky charm and warmth. If you like comedy-dramas with an eccentric touch and thematic plot line, then these five are definitely up your alley.

Despite Hulu being one of the best streaming services, its never a nice sight to see your favorites leave the platform – but we can only hope they'll return in a few months time. With that said, these are the five Anderson films you should check out before their time on Hulu runs out.

Mr. Fox (George Clooney) breaks a 12-year promise to his wife (Meryl Streep) and begins his plot to raid the local farmers Boggis, Bunce, and Bean. His animal instincts take over and he risks the wellbeing of his family and the lives of his other animal friends.

It's well-known now that Bill Murray is a regular cast member when it comes to Anderson movies, so it should as no surprise that he'd one day take a lead character's role. In this 2004 comedy, Murray stars as oceanographer Steve Zissou who seeks vengeance on a shark that wallowed one of his crew members. He gathers his crew along with journalist Jane (Cate Blanchett) and Ned (Owen Wilson) who's convinced Zissou is his father, and they set out on a journey to travel the sea. On the way, they experience unexpected run-ins with all manner of people, even those from Zissou's past.

Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow) is a gifted playwright, Chas (Ben Stiller) is a math and business whiz, and Richie (Luke Wilson) is a tennis prodigy.
