What’s Streaming on Netflix in August 2020

Welcome back to Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park (Universal)

    Netflix is getting prehistoric in August 2020. The first three Jurassic Park films are stomping over to the streaming giant, leaving the newly minted confines of Peacock only 17 days after launching. That kind of coup would impress even the likes of Ian Malcolm.

    That’s not all! Those flicks join an onslaught of legitimate popcorn classics in The Addams Family, The NeverEnding Story, Mad Max, A Knight’s Tale, and Seabiscuit. Okay, maybe that last one is more wine and cheese than buttered popcorn…

    Hey, speaking of the wine and cheese crowd, Netflix is also bringing some high class cerebral fare. There’s An Education, Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and one of our personal favorites in Nightcrawer.


    In terms of originals, Netflix’s premiering a ton of documentaries, a handful of family films, a bunch of series returns, more reality television, and a comedy special from one of Adam Sandler’s go-to pals. So, you’re good.


    Check out the entire list below and start stocking up on some snacks. To help round out your streaming sessions, check out what’s hitting Disney+, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Shudder, and Hulu. Stay tuned for guides surrounding Amazon and Shudder.
