New Netflix Movies, TV And Originals For August: Donald Trump [Sort Of], ‘The Get Down’ From Baz Luhrmann, And More

Netflix gets fans through the summer with a new slate of movies, TV, and original series and specials in August that features one of the most anticipated new originals in Netflix history — a series from one of the most visually stylish film directors working today, making his first foray into series television.

Baz Luhrmann, the 53-year-old Australian director of The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge, and Romeo+Juliet, takes a trip back in time to the Bronx, New York, in the 1970s with his series The Get Down. The gritty series explores the beginnings of disco music and hip-hop in one of New York’s toughest, most dangerous neighborhoods.

Netflix this week released a new trailer for The Get Down, which can be viewed below. All six episodes of Part One of the first season of The Get Down goes online on Netflix starting August 12.

Comedian Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die project also debuts a new original special in August, and timely one — the political satire Funny or Die Presents: Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie, aiming its sharp wit at the Republican nominee for president, premiering on Netflix August 1.

And for fans of action movies, Netflix rewinds back to the early 2000s for the very first entry in the Fast and the Furious film franchise, starring the late Paul Walker as well as Vin Diesel. The fourth entry, Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, also goes on Netflix August 1.
