Netflix has a long list of original content hiding up their sleeve, and they’re planning to release a ton of it in August. Shows like Orange Is The New Black, House of Cards and Stranger Things have shown us that Netflix really knows what makes good TV, and we’re dying to see what else they have to offer us this month. Our number one pick is The Defenders, which brings all of Netflix’s Marvel heroes together in one action-packed package. 

Even though they’ve purged some of our favorites (RIP Superbad) this month, they are releasing 16 brand new original shows and films and some all time favorites for our viewing pleasure from A Cinderella Story to Holes to 21. Here’s the entire list for you to check out and some staff picks you should definitely put on your list of things to binge.

Staff Picks

Stars: Shia LaBeouf, Khleo Thomas, Sigourney Weaver

Not to be biased, but Holes is definitely one of the top movies to come out of the early 2000s. Way before Shia LaBeouf's getting arrested days, this film is a classic that brings us right back to our childhood. Based off of the 1998 novel of the same name, Holes has the perfect amount of nostalgia to get you through the rest of the summer.

Marvel’s The Defenders
Stars: Krysten Ritter, Charlie Cox, Mike Colter, Finn Jones

Netflix’s newest miniseries mashes together four characters from their individual Marvel series to create The Defenders, a fighting team that comes together in New York City to defeat their common enemy, The Hand. Marvel has already had success with its Netflix shows and we can’t wait to see what The Defenders has in store for us.
