What's coming to Netflix: August Edition

GregHarmon GregHarmon Managing Editor August features the premiere and return of 20 Netflix originals highlighted by Adam Wingard's Death Note, Chadwick Boseman's American revenge-thriller Message from the King, and the highly anticipated debut of Marvel’s The Defenders: Season 1.

Other titles include Lana and Lilly Wachowski's Cloud Atlas and The Matrix Trilogy, Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown as well as streaming premieres of Michael Keaton's Ray Croc-McDonald's biopic The Founder, and Universal's $632 million dollar smash hit Sing.

Last but not least is Surviving Escobar: Alias JJ, a biopic which chronicles the life of Pablo Escobar's No. 1 hit man and former Medellin Cartel leader John Jairo (JJ) Velasquez (aka Popeye). The story begins with Pablo Escobar’s decline when Alias JJ decides to give himself in. After landing in prison, he must face his enemies and use all of his tactics not only to survive, but to regain his status of main capo in prison, while also continuing his reign of terror as a feared drug trafficker.
