Here’s What’s Coming to Netflix in August

     July 28, 2015


Another month comes to a close, and along with it, a whole freakin’ bunch of movies and television series get the boot off of Netflix. As always, however, this block of films, docs, and television seasons are replaced with a whole new array of titles to help you hide away from the dog days of summer in some air-conditioned haven. The August titles that will be funneling onto the streaming service, starting August 1st, are a pretty robust assemblage of visual works, and it’s nice to see a new stress on getting some more obscure films from this year onto Netflix, to help keep up with a release schedule that is increasingly crowded. July brought Wild Canaries, Lawrence Michael Levine‘s wondrous comedy-caper debut, and this month brings both Welcome to Me, featuring one of Kristen Wiig‘s best performances, and White God, a visceral action-drama centered on a dog uprising in Hungary; both would qualify as more-than-notable works of 2015.

Beyond that, there’s the bow of Kathryn Bigelow‘s still-thrilling The Hurt Locker, Neil Jordan‘s Byzantium, one of the better vampire films to see release recently, and Two Days, One Night, the Dardenne brothers’ magnificent workaday drama and one of the best films of last year. In the television realm, Season 4 of Revenge and Series 8 of Doctor Who are both premiering, as well as the first volume of collected Reading Rainbow episodes for those looking for a nostalgia kick. Netflix will also premiere its latest original series, Narcos, toward the end of the month, along with Once Upon a Time Season 4 and the first season of Utopia. Check out the rest of the premieres below. Happy watching!
