A guide to conquering peak TV

Here’s What Is Leaving And Arriving On Netflix In August 2019

Everything joining Netflix this month.

After a fairly slow summer, Netflix finally has a month jam-packed with new things to watch.

The service adds quite a few movies on Aug. 1, with highlights including “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Groundhog Day,” “Jackie Brown” and the original “Rocky” series. Adding “Four Weddings and a Funeral” this month seems like a shrewd move, given that Hulu debuts an adaptation of that movie on July 31.

Streaming wars!

I’m also excited for a few Netflix Originals this month. I can’t imagine I won’t like the new seasons of “Dear White People,” “Derry Girls,” “GLOW” and “Mindhunter.” The most notable Netflix Original film is kind of a weird one: Marlon Wayans produces and stars in “Sextuplets,” a movie in which Wayans plays each of the sextuplet characters. Netflix even had Wayans present its “What to Watch in August” video, which you can watch above. Normally those monthly “What to Watch” videos don’t have presenters.

Although I probably will not actually watch it, I’m also excited for the existence of the Netflix film “Falling Inn Love,” because that title is wild.

Movies leaving the service on Aug. 1 include “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” “Good Will Hunting,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Scarface,” “The Hurt Locker” and “Zombieland.” The “Slow TV” collection will leave Netflix on Aug. 5, which means Netflix will be a little less weird.
