Your August Binge-Watch: A List Of Netflix, Amazon Prime And Stan Releases

A weekend in bed is a weekend well spent.

By Bella Haigh | 30th July 2019

If you’re like me, you’re constantly waiting around for next month’s releases on Netflix to be announced, as I finish seasons too soon and am left with nothing left to do. Uni? No thanks. Life admin? No thanks.

I’ve always been a Netlfix gal, however after some digging around for this article, I’ll be signing up for Amazon Prime and Stan stat (R.I.P. bank account). Now, I’ll take any excuse to spend the weekend vegging out, and Augusts’ line-up has me stocking up on popcorn already. Here at Style, we have handpicked a few of our faves that will hit our screens in the next few weeks. So, get comfy and have your snacks at arm’s length because you’re about to be blown away.

NETFLIX

A Star Is Born

Already?! Yep, I’m just as shocked as you are. Neighbours be ready – there’s about to be a few renditions of ‘Shallow’ being belted out from lounge rooms far and wide. I think everyone who has seen this film so far, get a little too emotionally attached to Ally and Jack’s love story. Best get those tissue boxes ready for an emotional roller coaster of a movie night.

GLOW: Season 3

Open up those diaries and save the date for the Friday 9th of August! GLOW is coming back for its third season and the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are headed to Vegas. Although season two seemed like the last and final season, the producers have come back with a bigger and even brighter season three. If you’re a lover of all things’ 80s and serious female empowerment, GLOW is a show certainly worth the binge.

AMAZON PRIME

A Simple Favor

Does anyone else have a major girl crush on Blake Lively or is it just me? Regardless, the Amazon Prime team have announced “A Simple Favor” will hit our screens this August and we’re cheering. Without giving away too many plot details, this thriller follows Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily’s (Blake Lively) disappearance. This duo sounds too good to be true, so we’ll definitely be checking it out.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

All action spy film lovers listen closely, this one’s for you. The sixth instalment in the Mission: Impossible film series will be available to stream on Amazon Prime from Friday 23rd August so get ready to see Tom Cruise kick some ass! Following the release of the film, it has received critical praise and has been called the best instalment in the franchise yet. Big call.

STAN

The Handmaid’s Tale: Season 2

If you haven’t heard from, well… the ENTIRE Internet yet, The Handmaid’s Tale is coming back for a third season and we don’t know what to do with these emotions. If you’re up to speed with this phenomenal series, you’ll know how much of a big deal this is. If you’re new to the show, now’s the time to get hooked. So, get your binge on or wait patiently for a few days as the release date is (thankfully) the 1st of August.

She’s The Man

If you haven’t heard of this early ‘00s cult classic, then there’s something seriously concerning going on. Starring Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum (drool), “She’s The Man” is the film that birthed “using a tampon to stop nosebleeds” health tip. If you’re a lover of cheesy, all-American comedies, and an all-star cast, this movie is perfect for you.
