The Fugitive – After celebrating six months since his release from prison, Mike Ferro (Boyd Holbrook) is framed for orchestrating a bombing within the Los Angeles subway system. Ferro says he is an innocent man, but he is clearly caught on camera in the station the same time the bomb went off. Desperate to uncover the real perpetrator, Ferro goes on the run to clear his name. Counter Terrorism agent Clay Bryce (Kiefer Sutherland) is brought in to investigate and relentlessly pursues Ferro. Available August 3 on Quibi.

Malibu Rescue: The Next Wave – With the International Junior Rescue Championships headed to Southern California, the eyes of the entire planet are on Malibu Beach. But when Team USA falls victim to food poisoning, it’s up to everyone’s favorite Junior Rescuers — Tyler (Ricardo Hurtado), Dylan (Jackie R. Jacobson), Eric (Alkoya Brunson), Lizzie (Abby Donnelly) and Gina (Breanna Yde) — to represent their country in the world’s most extreme lifeguard challenge. Available August 4 on Netflix.

I Used to Go Here – Following the lackluster launch of her debut novel, 35-year-old writer Kate Conklin (Gillian Jacobs) receives an invitation from her former professor and old crush (Jemaine Clement) to speak at her alma mater.  With her book tour cancelled and her ego deflated, Kate decides to take the trip, wondering if returning to her old college as a published author might give her the morale boost she sorely needs.  Instead, she falls into a comical regression – from misadventures with eccentric 20-year-olds to feelings of jealousy toward her former professor’s new favorite student. Striking the balance between bittersweet and hilarious, Kate takes a journey through her past to redefine her future. Available August 7 on Digital and VOD.

Work It – High school senior Quinn Ackerman (Sabrina Carpenter) wants to join her school’s dance team, The Thunderbirds, in order to improve her chance of getting into a top college. The only issue is Quinn can’t dance, despite getting coaching from her friend Jas (Liza Koshy) ahead of the big audition. When Quinn doesn’t make the cut, she decides to create her own team, along with Jas. Available August 7 on Netflix.

An American PickleImmigrant worker Herschel Greenbaum (Seth Rogen) falls into a vat at a pickle factory and is accidentally preserved by the brine for 100 years. Waking up in modern day Brooklyn, he finds he hasn’t aged a day. He then goes to stay with his great-grandson Ben (also played by Seth Rogen). Available August 6 on Crave.
