What's new on Netflix this August

Can you believe it? July is almost over and August is almost here. And you know what each new month brings - fresh sets of new movies and TV shows on your favorite streaming services!

Netflix is adding tons of great content in August such as the acclaimed "The Matrix" trilogy plus cult sci-fi classics like "Cloud Atlas," "Innerspace" and "The Astronaut's Wife." Other flicks you'll surely enjoy include Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown," Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow," and Raul Julia in "The Addams Family."

Also, don't forget to check out another round of Netflix originals like the live-action adaptation of the "Death Note" series, the third season of "Voltron: Legendary Defender," and the comedy "Naked."

But as usual, some of our favorite movies and shows will be departing Netflix too. Titles leaving us in July include the "Babe" films, comedy "Superbad," and the classic "To Kill a Mockingbird." Entire seasons of "Justice League," "Justice League Unlimited," "Young Justice," and "American Dad!" are also leaving so make sure to catch all of your favorites while you can.

Check out our top picks for July's fresh Netflix content:

Marvel’s The Defenders: Season 1

Are you ready for more Netflix superhero action? The highly anticipated debut season of "Marvel's The Defenders" is finally arriving in August.

The mini-series continues the adventures of New York City super crime fighters Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and the Iron Fist, as they band together to battle a powerful common enemy, The Hand.

The series stars Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter and Finn Jones, all reprising their roles from their own titular shows.

"Marvel's The Defenders" arrives on August 18.

What Happened to Monday? - Netflix Original

Dystopian sci-fi thriller "What Happened to Monday?" will also start its Netflix run in August.

The movie exhibits an overpopulated post-apocalyptic world where families are forced to only have one child. With this backdrop, seven identical twins are forced to assume the identity of a single person in an effort to outwit the Child Allocation Bureau.

It stars Noomi Rapace (she plays the seven twins), Glenn Close, Willem Dafoe and was directed by Tommy Wirkola.
