Baz Luhrmann's '70s New York music series The Get Down has the first part of its first season come to Netflix in August.



The biggest news for Netflix in August is a slew of new originals, including the animated film version of The Little Prince and the first part of Baz Luhrmann's '70s New York music series The Get Down. There's also a number of new comedy specials including ones by David Cross and Louis C.K. (as well as the slightly less hip Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy) and early entries in the Fast and the Furious series. For a full list, read below:

The Fast and the Furious
The Fast and the Furious series is an incredible comeback story, where its seventh entry is somehow its most commercially and critically successful entry. Netflix is offering viewers the chance to revisit it from the beginning, with this relatively conventional street racing film starring Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker. The series' third film Tokyo Drift is also being added this month in addition to the already available 2 Fast 2 Furious, offering the opportunity for a marathon of the series' early entries.

The Little Prince 
The animated version of the children's book classic was set for a wide theatrical run in March before Paramount abruptly pulled it one week before release. The decision was even stranger considering the film had both strong reviews and a starry cast including Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Benicio del Toro and Marion Cotillard. Yet their loss will likely be the gain of Netflix, which picked up U.S. rights and can add the well-recieved film into their ever-expanding children's programming.

No Country for Old Men 
In an unusual situation, Joel and Ethan Coen's No Country for Old Men looks like it will be simultaneously added to Netflix and Amazon Prime. Yet any chance to see this masterpiece, which follows Llewyn Moss (Josh Brolin) as he steals $2 million also being sought by hitman Anton Chigurh (Oscar winner Javier Bardem), is one worth taking. And you haven't had enough Cormac McCarthy existential bleakness, John Hillcoat's 2009 adaptation of his novel The Road will be added to the streaming service this month as well.

The Get Down (Part 1) ­
The last attempt at a lavish series about the '70s New York music scene ended poorly, when HBO's Vinyl was unceremoniously cancelled after one season. Yet Netflix seems confident in this series created by Romeo + Juliet director Baz Luhrmann, which looks to be more centered on hip-hop and disco as it follows a group of teens in the South Bronx. Luhrmann's filmography is uneven, but The Get Down is a passion project for him, and it should be interesting to see if his lively visual style translates to the small screen.

Blue Is the Warmest Color 
Adapted from the graphic novel by Julie Maroh, this winner of the Palme D'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival follows Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) and her tumultous relationship with Emma (Lea Seydoux). The film's explicit lesbian sex scenes garned a great deal of controversy, including from Maroh. Yet beyond that, the film is a palpable evocation of the agony and ecstasy of love, grounded by an incredible performance from Exarchopoulous.
