Get ready for more Lucifer and your new favorite dance movie.
A lot might change around the world, but one thing is constant: Netflix will continue to seduce us all into staying at home for the foreseeable future with updated content every month, and we will be watching it. Everything leaving and coming to Netflix in August proves that point more than ever.
With new seasons of Netflix originals like Lucifer and Selling Sunset, next month’s streaming entertainment is looking up. Not only that, but August will also see the premiere of Netflix original films, like the dance movie Work It, which looks like if Step Up and Save the Last Dance had a baby, and Project Power, a superhero action movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jamie Foxx. And, if you’re looking to relive your childhood and learn about space, a new Magic School Bus Rides Again special coming to Netflix in August, called, you guessed it, Kids in Space.
If some of those big additions sound stressful, don’t worry, Netflix is also adding some relaxing new content to their library this month. Pick of the Litter, a 2018 documentary that follows puppies becoming guide dogs, will premiere on the streaming service on Aug. 2. That’s on top of the brand new comedy specials and new teen movies guaranteed to get you through another month of quarantine.
Here’s a look at the highlights coming to Netflix in August.
The film stars Heath Ledger as a medieval knight determined to prove himself in a jousting tournament that could turn him into a legend. But will he succeed? Honestly, it doesn’t really matter since anything Ledger is in is worth seeing regardless. So just sit back, relax, and let this ’90s heartthrob make you feel like a teen again.
Halloween may still be a ways off, but that’s no reason to deprive yourself of the kookiest, creepiest, most lovable family of all time. In The Addams Family, Fester and Gomez Addams reunite after years of being apart; however, Fester is no longer the brother Gomez remembers. In fact, he can’t remember anything about his past and has only returned home to steal the Addams’ fortune for himself. But will blood prove to be thicker than money? Nothing is impossible when it comes to this cast of characters.
“Hey, Mr. Wilson!” Did three little words ever brought with them such horror and fear before Dennis came into the picture? His intentions may be good, but Dennis sure proves to be a menace to his neighbor Mr. Wilson every chance he gets. But what starts as the ultimate clash of personalities soon turns into an unlikely friendship that’ll truly melt your heart when you least expect it.
We’ve all wondered what it would be like to roam among dinosaurs, and Jurassic Park provides an experience no one will soon forget. When the formerly fossilized creatures bust out of their cages (including the formidable T. rex), the human race learns what it’s like to exist much further down on the food chain.
Starring Adam Sandler and Winona Ryder, Mr. Deeds centers around a guy named Longfellow Deeds who finds his simple but happy life in Mandrake Falls completely uprooted after he inherits $40 billion from a long-lost relative. If only we could all be so lucky.
This may be considered a classic childhood story, but in reality it’s actually quite terrifying. From the ongoing threat of The Nothing to Artax’s heartbreaking death, this film makes for a truly traumatizing experience. But hey, if that’s really your cup of tea or you just want to take a walk down memory lane, psychological side effects be damned, then here is your chance.
Based on the 2002 Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name, Nights in Rodanthe stars Richard Gere and Diane Lane as Dr. Paul Flanner and Adrienne Willis, who are thrown together during a major storm and end up embarking on a life-changing romance neither of them will soon forget.
This romantic comedy starring Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler is the ultimate battle of the sexes film as both characters attempt to prove what really makes men and women tick. Little do they realize, though, Cupid works in mysterious ways and sometimes has a mind of its own.
As per the official synopsis, this Netflix documentary limited series offers a "unique and nuanced view of the ongoing struggles in America’s broken immigration system" and how it has impacted the lives of so many families across the country.
This educational kids series is back, and this time they’re taking their adventures out of this world — literally. The Magic School Bus heads to outer space to visit the International Space Station. However, this new terrain contains its own set of dangers, and they soon find themselves on the run from a giant tardigrade, whatever that is.
If you love dance-themed films, then this Netflix Original is a definite must-see. Quinn Ackerman desperately wants to get into the college of her dreams; however, in order to do so, she needs to nail her performance at an upcoming dance competition. The only problem is her dance skills need some work, so she decides to form a ragtag group of dancers to compete against the best squad in school and turn her college aspirations into a reality.
Serving as Rob Schneider’s first-ever Netflix original comedy special, the actor plans to give viewers an up-close-and-personal look at his family and private life, including what it was like to potty train his young daughters. The special will also end with duet performance with his daughter, singer-songwriter Elle King.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jamie Foxx, this superhero action movie centers around the unlikely team-up between a teenage dealer, local cop, and ex-soldier. Together, they embark on a mission to take down the group responsible for selling a dangerous pill that gives its users unpredictable superpowers for five minutes.
Victor Hugo’s classic musical is coming to a streaming platform near you. Following the journey of Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), the Academy Award-winning film tackles everything from unrequited love to broken dreams in the middle of 19th-century France. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll belt out your favorite lyrics from the comfort of your couch.
New Girl‘s Jake Johnson stars in the animated series as a foul-mouthed high school basketball coach who is determined to hit the big leagues. The only problem is that his current team’s talents leave a lot to be desired. If he has any chance of advancing his career, he needs to do the impossible and transform these terrible players into all-star athletes. But hey, no pressure or anything.
The ruler of the Hell returns to Los Angeles; however, he’s gone through a few changes since being away. In fact, he ends up not being Lucifer at all, but rather his twin brother, Michael, who is ready and willing to steal his brother’s life. The only question is, can the real Lucifer stop this impostor before it’s too late?
But as new TV shows and movies come in, some things must move out. Here are a few notable projects users will be forced to say goodbye to come August…
Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston team up for a classic rom-com scenario. Guy meets the girl of his dreams. Guy pretends his assistant is his soon-to-be ex-wife in order to cover up a lie he told said girl. Guy ends up falling for his assistant instead. Inevitable hijinks ensues.
If you love action movies with a lot of humor, then you’ll be sad to learn that Bad Boys, starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, will exit the streaming platform at the end of the month. Make sure to enjoy this buddy cop, crime-fighting duo while you still can.
Don’t let the title fool you — the Candyman is anything but sweet. Legend has it that if you say his name five times while starring into a mirror, he’ll appear and kill his summoner with a bloody hook. But hurry, this horror classic won’t be on Netflix for much longer, so if you’re going to watch it, best to do so now.
From the incredible fashion to the iconic slang and the never-aging Paul Rudd, it’s hard to find reasons not to fall in love with this ’90s hit, starring Alicia Silverstone as Cher Horowitz. (Well, except for maybe that questionable romance with her step-sibling Josh.) Which is why we understand if you’re totally buggin’ over the news that Clueless is leaving Netflix at the end of the month. Can we think of a good reason for this to happen? As if!
Tripp (Matthew McConaughey) thinks he has the perfect setup as a fully grown man who lives with his parents who wait on him hand and foot. That is, until they decide to hire someone help get him out the door. But what starts out as a fictional romance soon leads to something very unexpected for both of them.
Considering that most quarantine days throughout this ongoing pandemic have felt like one long, never-ending viewing of Groundhog Day, perhaps it’s for the best it’s leaving Netflix at the end of August. No need to watch the film when we’re all currently living it, right?
This star-studded rom-com attempts to do the impossible by solving the mystery of dating. Why don’t guys call when they say they will? Did something come up, or he is just not that interested? It’s a question men and women have been asking since the dawn of time, which is what makes this movie so relatable and well worth watching again and again.
Former Speed co-stars Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves reunite for a romantic comedy that challenges the boundaries of time with the help of a mysteriously magical mailbox. Snail mail has never seemed so romantic.
Parenting is a team effort, so when Holly Berenson (Katherine Heigl) and Eric Messer (Josh Duhamel) are forced to put aside their mutual dislike for each other in order to raise their best friend’s child, they discover just how much their lives are about to change forever — and that it’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess tell a story of love, loss, and the power that can come from a lifelong friendship as they reunite once a year on the anniversary of the day they first met. It only takes them 20 years to realize that what they’ve been searching for all along is each other.
Tom Cruise may have had Renee Zellweger at hello, but come the end of August, it’ll be time to bid the characters of Jerry Maguire and Dorothy Boyd farewell, at least for the time being. So get your fill of "Show me the money" and "You complete me" quotes while you still can.
It’s been over 30 years since the beloved ’80s classic first came out, and yet it still remains just as beloved as ever, which is why its upcoming departure from Netflix is so devastating. And just in case that in itself wasn’t a big enough punch to the heart, the streamer is also removing The Karate Kid Part II and Part III as well. Talk about a triple bummer.
Based on the 1988 DC/Vertigo Comics limited series of the same name, V For Vendetta follows the crusade of a vigilante known as V, who uses acts of terrorism to fight against the oppression of a fascist government. But will his efforts prove successful or be for naught? You’ll have to watch the film to find out one way or the other. Just be sure to do so before the clock runs out.
Much like He’s Just Not That Into You, Valentine’s Day is filled with a vast array of Hollywood stars, whose stories intertwine in unexpected ways on the most romantic day of the year.
