Top 5 Movies Coming to Netflix US in August 2018

Avoid the hot August sun and spend some quality time with Netflix.

Summertime is a quiet time when it comes to movies and Netflix. But that doesn’t mean you have no choices. You just have to know where to look. Lucky you, we took the time to scroll through the titles headed your way to pick out a few films we thought you’d like to take a look at.

There will be a marvelous collection of classic and Oscar-winning movies landing on the service next month as well as a couple of movies that are just so good you have to see them again. Starting with award winners, Million Dollar Baby, The AviatorGran Torino, and No Country For Old Men will all be hitting Netflix in August. Clerks and Stripes will also be streaming as well. I think those fall under the category of “you can never watch it too many times.”

For a full look at all of the selections coming next month see our August list.

Wish I Was Here arrives August 16th.
