Finally, there are some new movies on Netflix as August rolls around. If you’re like us and stream at least four hours of content every day, you probably ran through all the new movies on Netflix and are looking for more.
All in all, there are more than two dozen new movies on Netflix for August 2022 but only a few of them are must-watch.
Here are our recommendations and scroll on for the full list of new stuff on Netflix.
Arguably the most engaging new movie on Netflix, The Town is a 2010 crime thriller made by none other than Ben Affleck, who, as you know by now, can really keep you at the edge of your seat.
This heist movie features Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm and Rebecca Hall. For hiphop heads, the famed rapper Slaine also has a great part.
And speaking of HH heads, while you wait for Eminem to drop a new album, go back to his peak and watch 8 Mile again. This movie showing working class struggles in Detroit gets more heartbreaking as time goes on and you remember that Brittany Murphy died, as she had a magnetic presence.
Above the Rim
Once you finish watching 8 Mile for the millionth time, try another movie about hip hop culture. Fresh on Netflix is Above the Rim, a sports drama movie featuring Tupac Shakur, Marlon Wayans and Bernie Mac.
Get your supernatural and dry humor fix with Constantine. As everyone is waiting for the Supernatural prequel to drop this fall, the classic Constantine movie with Keanu Reeves is exactly what’s needed to put you in the monster-hunting mood.
Legends of the Fall
Can anyone have enough of Brad Pitt? We don’t think so and Netflix added yet another movie from his golden age.
You can stream on Netflix Legends of the Fall, the classic western with a captivating drama at its core, featuring Brad Pitt, Anthony Hopkins and Julia Ormond.
Dinner for Schmucks
More comedy? Stop rewatching The Office and stream Dinner for Schmucks on Netflix.
Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis star in this comedy about business people hosting “dinners for idiots”.
If you’re looking for even more romance, look for Bridget Jones’s Baby and Bridget Jones’s Diary on Netflix. And, if you have seen them dozens of times already, check out The Age of Adaline, a movie where Blake Lively stops aging at age 29 and has a complicated affair with a tech mogul.
