  • Netflix just shared its list of arrivals and departures for the month of August 2020.
  • Some of the notable additions to Netflix in August include The Legend of Korra, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Lucifer: Season 5, Casino Royale, and Quantum of Solace.
  • As for notable departures, Bad Boys, Groundhog Day, and The Karate Kid are all leaving.

I can’t tell if it’s a result of the pandemic or just a slow month, but August is looking rather grim for Netflix subscribers. In fact, the most notable addition this month might be The Legend of Korra, which is a Nickelodeon cartoon that aired half a decade ago (and also the sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender).

Thankfully, there are a bunch of solid movies being added to the library this month that should keep you occupied, including Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Casino Royale, Jurassic Park, Ocean’s Twelve, Nightcrawler, Safety Not Guaranteed, and Les Misérables, to name just a few.
