Business is booming.

7 new movies and TV shows on Netflix, Prime Video, HBO Max and more this weekend (August 5)

Traditionally, August has been a quiet month for streaming services — a time for the public to catch up on all the movies and TV shows they may have missed in the previous months.

Not so in 2022. This year, studio bosses have seen fit to bombard subscribers with perhaps more newcomers than in any other month. This weekend’s headliner is The Sandman on Netflix, but Prime Video, HBO Max and Paramount Plus also get many welcome additions.
