Netflix New Releases Accelerate into August 2018 With Summer Taking Hold

It may not be a stacked month of marquee Netflix Originals, but the Netflix new releases do offer something for everyone. One of the more anticipated releases is Matt Groening’s Disenchantment. It departs from Futurama and the Simpsons in favor of a more emotional story with its sense of humor.

On the documentary front, Zion and I AM A KILLER both make their debuts. The former is the story of a teenager born without legs pushing to become a competitive wrestler. The latter is what it sounds like; “history’s most notorious killers recount their stories from their points of view in their own chilling words.” Nothing says light watching like a documentary of murderers.

On the content catalog side of the service, Steel Magnolias makes its first appearance. Want to hear Christian Bale’s Batman voice? Consider your wish granted. No Country For Old Men, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and the Aviator are among the films getting comfortable in their new home at Netflix.

With a month of new releases, Netflix is kind enough to offer up a video montage.

If none of those spark your interest, there are always the older originals you may have missed. The Last Kingdom has two seasons up as the show begins shooting its third season. Get to watching some Uhtred. And of course, Peaky Blinders. Watch this show. Thank me later.
