Get ready for a binge-worthy month ahead on Netflix, folks! There’s a lineup of exciting movies and TV shows hitting the streaming service this August that’ll keep you glued to your screens. Let’s dive into the deets:
Kicking things off, we’ve got HBO’s “Ballers” coming your way, starring none other than Dwayne Johnson himself. If that’s not enough, get ready for the Depp v. Heard docuseries, delving into the headline-making 2022 defamation case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. It’s all about exploring what some have dubbed “the world’s first trial by TikTok,” and it’s bound to be a jaw-dropper. Plus, there’s a heartwarming family project produced by Adam Sandler, “You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah,” starring his daughter Sunny Sandler. This comedy is all about epic bat mitzvah plans gone haywire, mixed in with some teenage drama.
But wait, there’s more! Get ready for Netflix’s first-ever interactive rom-com, “Choose Love,” where you decide the story’s twists and turns. Laura Marano stars as Cami, who’s caught in a love triangle and you, yes you, get to make the choices that shape her journey. Remember “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch”? Well, it’s that kind of thrill, but with a rom-com twist.
In the movie department, Netflix is adding some high-profile films to its library. From the heartwarming “Paddington” to the thought-provoking “The Big Short” and even the hilariously wild “Sausage Party,” there’s something for everyone. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! If you’re into action, they’ve added five Fast and Furious movies. If you’re craving some laughter, check out “It’s Complicated,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” and “The Jerk.” And that’s just scratching the surface!
Oh, and let’s not forget the TV shows. The second season of “The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On” is dropping soon, where couples face some life-altering choices. Additionally, Netflix has you covered with the third season of the Untold docuseries, with stories ranging from Jake Paul’s transformation from YouTube star to boxer, to the Urban Meyer-coached Florida Gators during the Tim Tebow era.
In the midst of all these exciting additions, don’t forget to catch up on some recent releases. The second season of “Heartstopper,” the second part of the second season of “The Lincoln Lawyer,” and the opioid-epidemic limited series “Painkiller” are all there for your viewing pleasure.
So, there you have it – your ultimate guide to Netflix’s offerings in August. Get ready to be entertained, moved, and maybe even get to call some shots in the rom-com “Choose Love.” Grab your popcorn and prepare to dive into a world of captivating stories and characters. Happy streaming!
