What’s New On Hulu In August: New Original Documentaries, ‘The Beach Bum, A Simple Favor, Mission: Impossible’ And More


Hulu / Lionsgate

Time flies when you do nothing but sit on your couch and watch movies and TV shows streaming on one of the many services you subscribe to, huh? Which helps explain how yet another month has almost passed us by, meaning a brand new list of what’s new on Hulu for the month of August has been released.

Among the new titles coming to Hulu that we will get to enjoy from the comfort of our couches in August include Hulu original series Into The Dark: School Spirit, Hulu original documentaries Jawline and The Amazing Johnathan Documentary, popular new films like The Beach Bum, A Simple Favor, and Mission: Impossible – Fallout, as well as movie classics like Idiocracy, White Men Can’t Jump, Dances With Wolves, Eight Men Out, Indecent Proposal, and The Transporter.

The Amazing Johnathan Documentary begins as a profile on a uniquely deranged magician who built a career out of shock and deception in the 1980s, but becomes the bizarre story about the unravelling of his documentarian.

The Amazing Johnathan, with his irreverent magic act, rose to popularity landing one of the longest residencies in Las Vegas. However in 2014, Johnathan was diagnosed with a terminal heart condition and given only one year to live, forcing him to retire his act. Fast forward to three years later, Johnathan is still alive and chooses to return to the stage. Filmmaker Ben Berman sets out to capture The Amazing Johnathan’s comeback tour while peeling back the curtain on his unique, meth-fueled life.

But the seemingly straightforward profile of this eccentric illusionist starts careening off the rails as Johnathan drops a bombshell that sends the film spiraling into uncertainty. As we delve deeper to determine what’s real and what’s illusion, hard questions are raised, uncovering deeper truths about the ethics of filmmaking and human nature.

Jawline follows 16-year-old Austyn Tester, a rising star in the live-broadcast ecosystem who built his following on wide-eyed optimism and teen girl lust, as he tries to escape a dead-end life in rural Tennessee.

Jawline was directed by first time filmmaker Liza Mandelup. The film made its world premiere earlier this year at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, where it went on to win the Special Jury Award for Emerging Filmmaker.
