Every month Netflix Australia adds a heap of new content. Here’s what’s coming up in August.

The new films include the James Franco and Selena Gomez-led Spring Breakers about four college girls holding up a restaurant to fund their spring break vacation. After being arrested in Florida the group is bailed by a psychotic arms and drug dealer and things get even wilder.

Big Hero 6 (released 24/8) is the first Disney animated film to feature Marvel Comics characters. The movie was a box-office hit and was the highest-grossing animated film of 2014.

Club de Cuervos: Season 1 is a new Netflix Originals series which follows the heirs of a wealthy family in their pursuit to gain controlling rights of the recently-deceased patriarch’s beloved soccer team: The Cuervos of Nuevo Toledo.

There’s also two Harry Potter films — the Goblet of Fire and the Prisoner of Azkaban — due out late in the month, as well as Tom Hank’s classic Forrest Gump, the futuristic sci-fi thriller Minority Report, cult classic American Beauty and tense San Fran serial-killer flick, Zodiac.
