August brings plenty of new titles to streaming giant Netflix, and several launch today (August 14th) – including the highly anticipated original movie Project Power.
Mattson Tomlin penned the screenplay for the superhero flick – DC fans will recognise him as co-writer of the upcoming The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves and starring Robert Pattinson. Project Power is set in a world where the titular drug, a pill known as Power, gives users a random superpower for five minutes. The movie follows an unlikely mix of heroes united in trying to end the circulation of Power – an ex-soldier who’s searching for his daughter, a police officer who secretly uses Power, and a drug dealer trying to support her mother. It stars Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dominique Fishback.
Eclectic teen comedy Teenage Bounty Hunters also hits Netflix today. A coming of age story set against the backdrop of both evangelism and capturing criminals, the story follows twin sisters Sterling (Maddie Phillips) and Blair (Anjelica Fellini) as they navigate adolescence – and tracking down fugitives. You can binge the entire ten episode series on Netflix now.
If that wasn’t enough, season 4 of dystopian drama 3% lands on Netflix today. The Portuguese-language thriller sees a world split into two, with the idyllic section of society known as The Offshore only accessible after completing an ordeal known as ‘the Process’ – which only 3% of the 20 year olds who attempt it manage to achieve. Season 4 is the drama’s final season, and follows the fallout of the establishment of the Shell, a third seemingly paradisiacal society – until tragedy struck.
Other titles launching on Netflix today are: El robo del siglo, Fearless, Glow Up season 2, The Legend of Korra, and Octonauts & the Caves of Sac Actun. You can stream all of Netflix’s new additions totally free today with a 30 day free trial.
You can also check out a 30 day free trial with Amazon Prime Video for even more top content. From original superhero TV show The Boys to popular movies like Knives Out, with the option to stream to three screens at once, there’s something for everyone to enjoy on Amazon Prime Video.
