Netflix: Every movie, TV show and documentary coming in August

The summer may be heating up, but if you’re like most of us, you’re staying inside to flatten the curve of COVID-19. And what better way to make the most of our time indoors than by binge-watching the latest movies and shows to make their debut on Netflix?

In July, we saw some big names come and go on the platform — including classics like The Karate Kid, The Incredibles 2 and Back to the Future (and its two sequels). Tap or click here to see everything that came to Netflix in July.

But with August just around the corner, you’re probably wondering what you should put on your Watch List next? Don’t worry, we’ve got the complete list of upcoming features available on Netflix starting August 1. Here’s what you can find streaming on Netflix.

Here’s what’s coming to Netflix this August

For the end of summer, Netflix has a jam-packed lineup of shows and movies that fit a variety of different tastes and interests. There’s a little something for everyone here — from big-name blockbusters to art-house indie flicks and even some critically acclaimed cartoons.

Some of the August highlights include:

Jurassic Park (1993)

The adventure series 65 million years in the making needs no introduction, but back when it debuted in 1993, it was one of the most cutting-edge films to ever hit theaters. Jurassic Park’s realistic depiction of dinosaurs sparked the imagination of many up-and-coming filmmakers and showed how much potential computer animation had for delivering dazzling effects.

And if you’re craving more dino action, fear not: The sequels, The Lost World and Jurassic Park III, are here too. Their quality is hit or miss, but you can’t deny the dinosaurs are cool. The Jurassic Park trilogy arrives on Netflix August 1.

Les Misérables (2012)

The classic stage musical by Andrew Lloyd Weber is brought to life in brilliant sound and fury in this adaptation by Tom Hooper starring Hugh Jackman, Russel Crowe and Anne Hathaway.

Set against the backdrop of June Rebellion in 19th century France, Les Misérables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a man thrust into a period of social unrest while being pursued by the ruthless officer Javert. Its memorable songs and historical context will have the whole family singing and dreaming of freedom. Les Misérables arrives on Netflix August 16.
