Movies New to Netflix in August: ‘Batman Begins,’ ‘No Country for Old Men,’ ‘Clerks,’ and More

The streaming giant will add a number of modern classics to its ranks next month, from superheroes to the Coen brothers, and everything in between.

“Batman Begins”

Warner Bros.

Next month’s Netflix offerings are decidedly top-heavy, as the streaming giant will add a number of its starriest titles on the first of the month, including “Batman Begins,” “Clerks,” “Million Dollar Baby,” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” along with classic tearjerker “Steel Magnolias” and the also classic Matt-Damon-being-dumb entry “The Informant!” The rest of the month holds other treasures, however, including “No Country for Old Men” and “Hostiles,” a solid double feature for anyone who loves witnessing the brutal dissection of the American dream.

Netflix will also debut a number of original films next month, including the Kristen Bell-starring “Like Father,” their YA adaptation “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” and the mouth-filling “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.” Tasty!
