August is a strange month. Even though it is Autumn it doesn’t feel like Autumn. It still feels like Summer. That is reflected in the movies that get released in August as they are still regarded as Summer Blockbusters.
As well as the long awaited Marvel’s The Defenders there are some old classics appearing on Netflix this month including The Matrix Franchise, a Cinderella Story and Wild Wild West.
