New on Netflix: All the Movies and TV Coming in August

Movies Features Netflix
Pin

August used to be the barren wasteland of new TV, but that was before on-demand television. Netflix is treating the middle of summer like sweeps week with plenty of new series debuts and the addition both original and acquired movies to its catalog. We’ll do our best to highlight the most promising offerings from Netflix, broken down between movies and TV shows.

Notable movies arriving August 1 include Christopher Nolan’s first DC entry, Batman Begins, Kevin Smith’s cult hit Clerks, Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-winning Million Dollar Baby, the star-studded drama Steel Magnolias, Bill Murray’s hilarious turn in Stripes and the first installment of The Lord of the Rings. Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammer star as a daughter and dad in the Netflix original comedy Like Father, debuting Aug. 3. On Aug. 10, Netflix original The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society is a historical romance based on Mary Ann Shaffer’s novel by the same (unwieldy) name. And later in the month, you can watch The Coen BrothersNo Country for Old Men (Aug. 11) and Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here (Aug. 16).

In the TV department, we’re most curious about Matt Groenig’s latest animated series Disenchantment about “the misadventures of a hard-drinking princess, her feisty elf companion and her personal demon.” It arrives on Aug. 17. Other new Netflix original series include All About the Washingtons, a sitcom starring Rev. Run; Cocaine Coast, a 1980s gangster drama set in Spain; and Ghoul, an Indian supernatural thriller. Ozark returns for a second season, Great News makes its Netflix debut and Season 2 of Paste favorite The Good Place becomes available towards the end of the month.

Netflix  also has new comedy specials from Demetri Martin and Bert Kreischer.

August will be the last chance to watch several great titles on Netflix, including Finding Dory, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, 13 Assassins, St. Vincent, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and The Road.
