What's Coming To Netflix This August | Def Pen
Netflix
The highly anticipated Marvel superhero crossover ‘Defenders’ will be coming to Netflix August 18th. Cred. Netflix

Netflix was especially quiet in the month of July, with no big name releases or Netflix Originals that were must watches (other than Friends From College). I guess you can call that month the ‘calm before the storm’ because, with the month of August, a storm of new Originals and Movies will be heading to Netflix. Without further ado, here is what’s coming to Netflix this August:

The Netflix Originals

Marvel’s Defenders (Season 1)

If you’re a fan of Marvel and Netflix’s superhero collaborations so far, you won’t want to miss the crossover show. Marvel’s Defenders will feature all of the already established superheroes in their Netflix universe; Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. From what we’ve seen from the trailers so far we can tell that the villain they will face, definitely has to do with a compilation of all their original stories, so you might want to catch up before the August 18th release.

Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later (Season 1)

Netflix
The 1st season of Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later. Cred Netflix.

For those who haven’t seen the original movie, this comedy about dysfunctional camp counselors brings in a stacked cast which includes; Amy Poehler, Chris Pine, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Wiig. If you’re a fan of their comedy, there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy the original movie (made in 2001). Netflix already rebooted this a couple years ago, but now they’ve decided to expand this into a full show. It’ll be interesting to see if this continues past 1 season. You can check this out on August 4th.

Naked

Don’t you guys just miss ‘In Living Colour’? If you’re a fan of any of the Wayans Brothers Productions, you will not want to miss this light-hearted comedy. Imagine waking up every day, naked in an elevator, and having to deal with the complications that come with that. Comedian Marlon Wayans will explore that in a Groundhog’s Day-esque movie. You can check out this movie on August 11th.

Netflix Original Movie Of The Month

Deathnote

Live-action adaptations of Anime shows have received a bad reputation for ‘whitewashing’ it’s cast (Scarlett Johanson in Ghost in a Shell), but despite some criticism over its first trailer, Netflix’s adaptation of Anime classic ‘Deathnote’ has begun to build some excitement around it. If you could write a name into a book and choose how they die, would you? It will have to prove a lot to diehard fans but maybe this can be a turn in the tide for Anime’s turned live-adaptations. This movie hits Netflix on August 25th.
