If you’re looking for some new sci-fi stuff to stream this month, August brings a whole lot of modern classics (and animated Marvel flicks) to the table.

We’ve broken down everything genre-related hitting The Big Three — Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu —this month. There aren’t a ton of new movies on the horizon for August, though there are a few quirky originals and older flicks you probably already love. 

Check out the full list below and let us know what you’ll be streaming:





Netflix brings the fifth season of Once Upon a Time, 1999’s Sleepy Hollow, and the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road. On a quirkier note, there's also the first season of the new animated series Beat Bugs, which features modern-day covers of Beatles songs from hit artists like Eddie Vedder. Which seems weird, but maybe cool.

The Real Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Star Trek: Nemesis
Beat Bugs Season 1
The Curse of Sleeping Beauty (2016)

Hulu is loaded with animated Marvel fare this month, in case the wait for Captain America: Civil War to hit Blu-ray is getting you down. There's also the RoboCop and Species trilogies, along with the surprisingly solid Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. Oh, and Ghost Rider, if you’re jonesing for some Nic Cage weirdness.
