Coming and Going on Netflix in August 2016

The animated film 'The Little Prince' debuts on Netflix in the U.S.

Netflix continues to roll out original and exclusive programming in August, including the new series The Get Down, a drama set in the culture of the South Bronx in 1977 that gave birth to hip hop, the American premiere of the animated feature The Little Prince from Oscar-nominated filmmaker Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda), and the Netflix Original movie XOXO with Sarah Hyland, Brett DelBuono, Chris D’Elia, and Ione Skye, plus new kid shows Beat Bugs and Bottersnikes and Gumbles and new seasons of Project Mc2, Dawn of the Croods, and Puffin Rock.

Other new arrivals coming in August include the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men, the Cannes Film Festival award winner Blue is the Warmest Color from France, St. Vincent with Bill Murray, The Confirmation with Clive Owen, The Road with Viggo Mortensen, and the satirical Funny or Die Presents: Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie starring Johnny Depp as Donald J. Trump. Streaming TV includes Once Upon a Time: Season 5, NCIS: Season 13, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: The Seventeenth Year, and the first season of Ku’damm 56 from Germany.

And then there’s the listing title leaving Netflix at the end of July, including the comedy Bowfinger with Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy, Spike Lee’s heist thriller Inside Man with Denzel Washington and Clive Owen, and the kid movies Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Rugrats Go Wild, The Sandlot, Zathura, and The Wild Thornberrys Movie.
