What’s new on Hulu in August and what’s leaving soon

Hulu has some extra competition with the launch of Disney+ and HBO Max, but that hasn’t kept it from delivering plenty of compelling TV series and movies to subscribers. The streaming video service has an impressive list of new offerings for August 2020, from original films to critically acclaimed series. Here are some of the highlights, as well as a full list of what’s new this month.

August brings the premiere of Hulu Original movie The Binge, starring Vince Vaughn, as well as the third season of original series Find Me in Paris. Hulu also adds several popular movies to its library, including the critically acclaimed indie drama The Peanut-Butter Falcon and six films from the original Star Trek movie franchise.

The Binge

Director Jeremy Garelick puts a psychedelic spin on the “everything is legal for a single day” premise that turned The Purge into a blockbuster horror franchise. This Hulu Original film follows a group of teenage friends on “Binge Day,” the one day when all drugs and alcohol become legal for 24 hours. Swingers and Wedding Crashers actor Vince Vaughn joins Booksmart actor Skyler Gisondo and American Vandal actor Eduardo Franco in the drug-fueled comedy, which follows a group of friends preparing to experience the annual event for the first time.
