Netflix Just Announced A Ton Of New Movies And TV Shows For August

Les Miserables

Now that we’re two thirds of the way through July, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what’s coming to Netflix next month. New titles are being added all the time and while some days remain lacking in content at present, on the whole we know what to expect on the streaming service in August. As always, there’s a huge variety, too, from foreign titles to documentaries to new TV series to much-anticipated Netflix originals.

Some of the more notable additions to the line-up that have been added since it was first announced last week include 2003’s Seabiscuit, the jockey drama starring Tobey Maguire, and the next season of Transformers Rescue Bots Academy, both coming on the first day of the month. And remember, this is far from the full list of new arrivals for August, as it only encompasses what’s been announced so far, with the remainder of the titles set to be revealed closer to the end of the month.

For now, though, here’s what’s been revealed:

Moving on into the second half of the month, the 16th sees two interesting movies added to Netflix’s library. 2014 fantasy Seventh Son, starring Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges, and 2012’s Les Miserables, one of the most successful musicals of the last decade which features an all-star cast including Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe. The day after also brings 2017’s comedy Drunk Parents, with Alec Baldwin and Salma Hayek.

Of course, Les Mis is a big deal for fans of the film, but the highlights of the month’s load – so far, at least – probably remain a Netflix original movie and TV show. On the 14th, Project Power, a new superhero flick starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt about a pill that can give a person superpowers, debuts after being in the works for a very long time. Then, on the 21st, the first half of Lucifer season 5 drops. Remember, a sixth and final season was announced earlier this month as well.
