August is typically a dump-off month where films get dropped because studios are uncertain if they are blockbusters or not, and because of that, we usually see some good, some bad, and even some ugly movies in this month. But August 2021 movies are looking a little different.

This year, due to Covid and the year’s structure due to the Oscars, August 2021 is packed with massive films that have huge potential.

With theaters ramping back up as each week passes, we are beginning to see even more independent movies find their footings as well. But, of course, the biggest question heading into the month will be how the big movies fair will be at the box office.

We have movies that were put off due to the pandemic finally releasing, a big-time blockbuster that’s subject to a dual-release, and several streaming platforms taking some risk with new vehicles. Let’s check them out!

Below, we quickly list the biggest movies premiering in the month of August 2021 with details on where you can either go watch it on the big screen or stream it online. Let us know if we missed any big movies you are excited to watch.

Which movie excites you the most? For me, The Suicide Squad is at the top of my most anticipated films of the year due to James Gunn being behind the director’s chair.

Another one that has me excited is Nia DaCosta’s Candyman. The number of times this has been pushed has broken my heart, and FINALLY, we can see it in theaters, and I can’t wait.
