New on Hulu: All the Movies and TV Coming in August

August is deep into the dog days of summer, aka the hottest time of year in the Northern Hemisphere. We’re willing to bet you’re sweaty, sunburned and more than a little exhausted from attending BBQ after beer-fueled BBQ. But what’s cooler than being cool? To paraphrase a certain André 3000, ice cold … space. Maybe the vast nothing is just what the doctor ordered.

Hulu’s got your back this month, adding a smorgasbord of space and space-adjacent material to explore from the comfort of your (hopefully) air-conditioned home. There’s the collection of National Geographic specials devoted to the Apollo moon missions kicking off Aug. 6: Mission to the Moon, The Armstrong Tapes and Back to the Moon are here to satisfy your lunar needs. The extraterrestrial battle royale that is Alien vs. Predator arrives Aug. 1; bonus points for largely being set in chilly Antarctica. Continuing the extraterrestrial themes are 1994’s Egyptian-but-it’s-not Stargate and 1997’s enduring The Fifth Element, which is totally worth it for that alien opera and Bruce Willis being jaded, both of which arrive Aug. 1. All you Trekkies can bravely go where many, many have gone before when the first 10 films in the Star Trek franchise—also known as the Kirk/Picard years—hit Hulu on Aug. 1, as well. And we can’t forget to mention Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum, which secured a lofty spot on our list of the best films of 2019 so far. Matthew McConaughey plays Moondog, a stoner so burned out, he might as well be on another planet.

The television side of things looks relatively slim, but there are still a few ways to bring that body temperature down to tolerable levels. Hulu’s adding another new episode of its monthly, Blumhouse-produced anthology Into The Dark, named for a place that is, by its very definition, out of the scorching direct sunlight. Gintama season one (Aug. 30) finds a samurai freelancer working in an Edo-era Tokyo that’s been conquered by aliens. The fifth season of the reality series Wicked Tuna (Aug. 25) follows commercial fishermen through the North Atlantic in their hunt for said fish. In case you weren’t aware, literal icebergs manage to swing through that region. Brrrr.

Those of you who have shelled out for the deluxe packages, meanwhile, can catch The Blair Witch Project and its sequel, Book of Shadows (Aug. 1) on Starz via Hulu. Hey, scared shivers still count. The seafaring rip-roarer Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (Aug. 1) pits Russell Crowe against formidable foes: the open sea and the French. Earth to Echo, a found-footage sci-fi flick about a telekinetic alien robot, arrives Aug. 18.

As always, it’s time to say goodbye to older material, as well. Get your fill of Jeff Goldblum in Independence Day while you can; it’s leaving Aug. 31. Other notable losses include Steven Spielberg’s minor sci-fi hit Minority Report, Chris Evans’ pre-Avengers stint in Not Another Teen Movie and the raunchy comedy Superbad.
