Sure, Netflix is getting plenty of Emmy love right now, but don’t count Hulu out just yet. The streaming platform just wrapped up the second season of the acclaimed The Handmaid’s Tale, it’s got another critical darling, Harlots, currently airing its second season, and plans for Stephen King’s Castle Rock series to drop late July. But just because summer is winding down doesn’t mean your binge-watching options are. Along with some original projects, Hulu’s adding a ton of TV and movies to its lineup this August. Here’s everything worth watching.

ARRIVING

Baby Driver 7/11 (Showtime)

You’ll need a Showtime add-on to view Edgar Wright’s head-banging, rhythmic heist drama, but it’s well worth the added expense. Ansel Elgort plays the titular Baby, a hearing-impaired wheelman for a group of baddies led by Kevin Spacey. Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, and Jon Bernthal get in on the action, robbing banks to fund their criminal lifestyle but Baby has more noble reasons for serving as the getaway-driver to this motley crew. Of course, when he meets a young waitress (Lily James) those reasons seem less important and the two have to fight their way out of the gang in order to survive.

mother! 7/26

No film in 2017 was quite as polarizing as Darren Aronofsky’s mother! The drama had big names attached — Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris, Jennifer Lawrence, and Javier Bardem — and even bigger aspirations. It’s a wild rollercoaster, a mash-up of a handful of genres, a film within a film. Maybe it has something to say about environmental issues or societal structure or the human condition. Maybe it’s just a flashy thriller flick full of twists and turns but devoid of any real substance. The only way to find out is to watch for yourself, and even then, don’t count on nailing this thing down.

DEPARTING

Trainspotting

This British dark comedy from director Danny Boyle became a cult phenomenon when it hit theaters over 20 years ago. The film follows Ewan McGregor, who plays a young man immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, desperately trying to get clean despite the negative influences of his rag-tag group of friends. It’s full of stellar performances, weird British humor, action, and kids getting into trouble.

Here’s the full list of titles coming to Hulu in July:
