All The Shows & Movies New To Hulu In August

From classic rom-coms to Top Gun.

Originally Published: 

Hopefully you're feeling nostalgic, because the shows and movies new to Hulu in August include a bunch of '80s and '90s classics. Fall in love again with an iconic Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts rom-com. Experience the thrill of a Tom Cruise '80s action movie. Terrify yourself with a vintage horror film about a possessed doll.

If you're in the mood for something a little newer, there's also a new comedy starring Vince Vaughn that explores a world in which drugs and alcohol are only legal one day a year. Plus: a new TV series about finding love amid the pandemic, a special about surfers who've encountered sharks, and a recent season of Real Housewives to fill your drama meter for the month.

Of course, this also means there are a number of shows and movies leaving the platform in August. That includes a few of the titles that are being added on Aug. 1, which are then leaving on Aug. 31. So you'll need to make sure to put them at the top of your watchlist if you want to get to them before they're gone.

Read on for a few highlights plus the full list of what's coming and going.

My Best Friend's Wedding — August 1

In this classic rom-com, Julia Roberts stars as a woman named Julianne who slowly realizes she's in love with

Four Weddings and a Funeral — August 1

Another iconic '90s rom-com, this one stars Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell who grow closer as their friend group experiences exactly what the title describes: four weddings and a funeral. The movie was recently adapted into a Hulu series, so you can check out the show afterward.

Gayby — August 1

This movie landed writer Jonathan Lisecki an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best First Screenplay. It follows a woman and her gay best friend who decide to try having a baby together. But things get complicated when she also has a one-night stand around the time she gets pregnant, leaving her unsure about which man is her baby's father.

Up in the Air — August 1

Anna Kendrick's plucky new hire is a great foil to George Clooney's suave businessman in this 2009 rom-com. If you're missing traveling, there's also enough airport and hotel footage to let you live vicariously.

Child's Play — August 1

This '80s horror flick about a terrifying doll named Chucky is both ridiculous and utterly creepy.

Top Gun — August 1

Top Gun: Maverick may have been delayed until 2021, but you can watch the original '80s movie in the meantime.

Shark vs. Surfer — August 2

Shark Week 2020 starts on Aug. 9, but fans can get a head start with this National Geographic special about surfers' real run-ins with the ocean predators.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold — August 3

After two decades of entertaining children in her animated series, Dora made the leap to live-action for this 2019 film. The movie aged the character up to 16 to make it appeal to a broader audience.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 — August 6

In case you missed all the recent RHOC drama while the new season was airing.

The Peanut Butter Falcon – August 6

Zak, a man with Down syndrome, runs away to become a professional wrestler. Along the way, he picks up a friend and coach played by Shia LaBeouf.
