There's just one more month of summer left, which means that another slate of movies and TV shows are set to get the boot from Netflix. We've rounded up the list below and from the looks of it, there are some real gems leaving the platform in August.    

From the biographical drama Jobs – not to be confused with Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs that was released two years later in 2015 – to book adaptions like James Baldwin's 1974 novel If Beale Street Could Talk, I've already noted down a few titles that I'll be making sure to rewatch this weekend. 

Another standout movie that is set to leave the best streaming service is The Italian Job – not the original starring Michael Caine, but the hilarious remake with Mark Wahlberg. There also seems to be quite a few horror titles being axed including The Ring, Paranormal Activity and Scream (the series).

That might seem like a lot of good content is leaving, but there are plenty of new Netflix movies coming to the platform next month – some of which are newcomers that could make our best Netflix series list, too.
