Summer is going fast, but there’s still plenty of long nights and lazy days left to relax and watch some movies and TV shows before it ends. This month, streamers like Netflix, HBO Now, Hulu, and Amazon Prime have a huge range of new and classic titles for you to watch.

From superhero blockbusters like Aquaman, to classic films like The Terminator, Gangs of New York, and Rocky I-V, Oscar-winning films like The Favourite, to new seasons of TV shows like Succession and Mindhunter, there’s something streaming for everyone this month.

Here’s a look at five titles to keep an eye on heading towards the end of summer.

Aquaman (HBO): Jason Momoa stars as the titular superhero in this blockbuster, bridging the gap between two worlds and becoming the man he was destined to be. With eye-popping visuals and dazzling action from director James Wan, Momoa gives Aquaman a swashbuckling personality and brings his real-life badassery to the film. “It’s probably the character I’ve played that’s most like me,” Momoa said in his Men’s Journal cover story. “Like him, I grew up a huge outsider. I was just with my mother, he was just with his father, and I know what that’s like, not having a parent around.”

Mission: Impossible – Fallout (Hulu, Amazon Prime): In the sixth installment of the Mission: Impossible series, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) has to track down missing plutonium cores that could be used for nuclear bombs. Henry Cavill joins the series as shady CIA operative August Walker, who ends up being an antagonist to Hunt and his team. Cavill’s mustache got plenty of headlines during production, and as Cavill said in his Men’s Journal cover story, he had some fun with it: “Can’t be a hero with that kind of facial hair,” Cavill said. “It’s kind of the new black hat, the new scar on the face, the new English accent. He’s not a bad guy. He is just an antagonist to the protagonist.”

The Righteous Gemstones (HBO): This new HBO comedy series comes from the mind of Danny McBride, who previously starred in Eastbound & Down and Vice Principals for the network. This time around, he stars as a member of a famous televangelist family and it follows their “long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work.” McBride stars alongside John Goodman and Adam Devine as the main members of the family.

Mindhunter Season 2 (Netflix): After debuting in 2017, Mindhunter returns with a new season and new set of cases and serial killers for Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) to investigate. After helping open up the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit in Season 1, the new season will follow the team as they investigate the Atlanta child murders of 1979–81.

Succession Season 2 (HBO): This series follows the family drama of the Roy family, with Logan Roy (Brian Cox) at the top of a media empire and his four children (played by Rory Culkin, Sarah Snook, Alan Ruck, and Jeremy Strong) looking to gain power in it. The series has some very funny and wildly dramatic moments and some of the best acting from top-to-bottom on TV.

Here’s a look at everything hitting Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and HBO Now.
