Hulu: What's New in August 2017

Still from Saving Private Ryan

August signals the last month of winter here in Australia, and while sporty snow bunnies will be soaking up the last of the ski season, committed couch potatoes are content to snuggle up with the very best streaming our US friends at Hulu have to offer. Let’s take a look at what’s coming this month.

Kick off your month by revisiting Hollywood’s beloved classic, Ghost. Featuring arguably the most raunchy sex scene featuring a pottery wheel, this 1990 film stars two actors at the height of their careers, Demi Moore (Indecent Proposal) and the late Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing). Whoopi Goldberg also features as dodgy psychic, Oda Mae Brown. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll take up pottery making.

Also worth catching if you’ve never seen it before is Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning Saving Private Ryan. Featuring a stellar cast including Tom Hanks (The Da Vinci Code) and Matt Damon (The Martian), the film is set during WW2 and tells the story of a group of U.S. soldiers charged with going behind enemy lines to bring home paratrooper Private Ryan after three of his brothers are killed in action.

Coffee lovers can discover the history of the magical bean in documentary, Cup of Culture (2017). The flat white you enjoy in your favourite hipster café begins its life grown in a third world country. The film shines a light on the importance of fair trade. If you’re not a fan of coffee but you love a doco, maybe Mosquito is more your speed. Tiny and annoying, these insects pose a very real threat to humankind with their ability to spread deadly diseases including malaria and yellow fever. Filmed over four continents and featuring incredible macro photography, Discovery Channel’s Mosquito is narrated by Oscar-nominated actor, Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) and features a rare interview with Microsoft billionaire and philanthropist, Bill Gates. Streaming on Hulu from August 6th.

If you’re searching for a new series to binge on, Stan Against Evil may scratch your itch. John C. McGinley, best known for his role as permanently bad-tempered Dr Cox on comedy series Scrubs, stars as aging police sheriff, the titular Stan. When angry demons haunt his town, he is forced to work with new sheriff Evie Barret played by Janet Varney (You’re The Worst). Complete Season 1 is available from August 18.

The Season 3 premiere of Hulu Original series Difficult People begins streaming on August 8. Created by and starring Julie Klausner, the series revolves around Julie and Billy, aspiring comics trying to make it in New York City. SNL alumni Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) produces.

Read on for the full list of what’s coming and going on Hulu this August.
