‘Hobbs & Shaw,’ ‘Succession,’ and 95 other new movies, TV shows, albums, and books you must check out this month

Get ready to welcome back Sleater-Kinney, heat things up in ‘The Kitchen,’ and watch ‘GLOW’ in the dark. (Or in the daylight! Your call, really!) Here’s your creative calendar for August.

‘Hobbs & Shaw,’ ‘Succession,’ and 95 other new movies, TV shows, albums, and books you must check out this month

It’s the same odd phenomenon every year. July 4 hits, marking not only Midsommar, as it did this year, but the middle of the year altogether, and then less than a month later, August 1 suddenly kicks off the slow, steady slog toward Christmas. “But didn’t Christmas just happen?” you think, possibly while applying SPF-30 sunscreen to your criminally sandy, beach-bound shoulders. No, it did not. That was over three Marvel movies ago, and we are somehow back in preholidays phase again. Whether you’re susceptible to the Christmas Creep or not, though, there’s inarguably still a sweet chunk of summer left to enjoy, and with it, a massive bounty of movies, TV shows, music, and more. A Black Lady Sketch Show alone is the kind of thing that makes you want to live inside the moment. Have a look below at Fast Company‘s comprehensive creative calendar for August 2019 to see the remainder of this summer’s offerings.
