What’s Coming to Netflix Canada in August 2018

By Simon Hung

It's August, which means we're two-thirds of the way through 2018, but there's still two months before the NHL regular season begins.

Luckily, you can pass the time by building a blanket fort and streaming some Netflix to watch one of over 80 new titles coming this month, including Sully, the fourth season of How to Get Away with Murder and more. Plus, you'll soon be able to use one of over 100 new images as your profile icon, including Netflix characters like Steve Harrington and Jessica Jones, instead of a generic smiley face.

RFD Staff Pick -- The Accountant

Ben Affleck plays an accountant (surprise!) in The Accountant, available to stream starting August 27.

August is a relatively dull month for new releases, but you can watch Ben Affleck play Christian Wolff, a skilled forensic accountant with a dark past who secretly helps criminal organizations under the guise of a small-town accounting firm. The mediocre plot is redeemed by good action sequences and an excellent supporting cast that includes Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons and Jon Bernthal.

    • The Accountant was decent for the first hour, but after that, it went downhill. Had a good premise, but failed by the 3rd act.
    • Report Post
    • These Shows are so old. What took them so long.
    • Report Post
    • This list would be a lot more useful if it said what type of show each title was. TV show? movie? documentary?
