In Movies & TV

The summer movie season has been officially cancelled - but movies old and new are still coming to Netflix.

What's new on Netflix in August 2020

With Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" and Disney's "Mulan" official moving their release dates to the far off, COVID-safe weekend of "sometime," the summer movie season has officially been canceled. But thanks to Netflix, you'll at least have some films, old and new, to help you beat the heat and keep you inside – albeit at home, not the local movie theater.

Admittedly it's not the flashiest slate the Big Red Streaming Monolith has ever unveiled, but there's plenty to help distract you from its slowly shrinking library of movies you've actually heard of the world. For instance, the three original "Jurassic Park" movies will roar back onto the streaming service, as well as acclaimed hits like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Being John Malkovich," "Seabiscuit," "An Education" and "Nightcrawler." And even though this year's been bereft of blockbusters, there are a few favorites from the past coming to Netflix such has "Casino Royale" (the best Bond movie, IMO), the original "Mad Max," "A Knight's Tale" and "The NeverEnding Story." (Bad news: You now have the theme song stuck in your head.)

As for Netflix Originals, the slate is also a bit thin – but there is a new super-slick action thriller from the directors of the under-appreciated 2016 dumb fun social media thriller "Nerve." So I call that a win.
