As the weather continues to heat up in August 2019, some kids are heading back to school, while others have another month to putz around. When it’s too hot to go outside, it may be cool to try a family movie night, and there are a lot of releases coming in August that work for fans young an old. This ranges from titles like Detective Pikachu on the PG spectrum to extravaganzas like Avengers: Endgame, which will finally hit Blu-ray and DVD in August and should answer some questions about the flick.
For the cinephiles, there is plenty coming too. The month will kick off with the indie flick Tolkien, starring Nicholas Hoult, as well as the limited theatrical release Amazing Grace, about Aretha Franklin.
Along with these sorts of hits, there will be plenty coming in the TV realm as well. The networks traditionally gear up for fall TV with a slew of last season’s releases, and this August fans will get plenty of new TV fodder from network hits like The Blacklist to subscription cable hits like Season 7 of Homeland. Be sure to take a full look at what else is coming with our list, below.

Obviously, Avengers: Endgame recently made box office history. I’d expect the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital release to also do well upon its August 13 release this month. We’ve seen a deleted scene nodding at Tony Stark’s story in the last Avengers film already, and the set is promising a slew of extras, from a gag reel to more deleted scenes and some behind-the-scenes fodder featuring the star-studded cast.
Ownership of the movie is doubtless the most exciting part, but these extras should be cool, nonetheless. Keep scrolling for more big Blu-ray, DVD and Digital hits from 2019.
While June had some big and somewhat patriotic releases, like Captain Marvel and Jack Ryan, July is looking a whole lot broader in terms of what we’ll get on DVD. Sure, we’ll get a big superhero movie moment in Shazam’s home entertainment release and some comics villains with the final season of Gotham, but there are also myriad TV and movie releases across a whole lot of different genres from Breakthrough to Manifest.
If we’re talking highly-anticipated releases, Alita: Battle Angel may take the cake, as fans can look forward to a slew of collector’s sets and more to choose from.
Still, the Digital releases this month aren’t too shabby, particularly if you think CGI’d raccoons or yellow Pokemon with a penchant for coffee are cute.
In the meantime, June’s releases are still rolling out, if you wanted to take a look at what recently became available. In the meantime, let’s look toward the future and see what’s coming to 4K, 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital during the hot, hot heat in July.
Per usual, Digital releases are the same day as the major hard copy sets, unless otherwise noted in the early Digital release column.

The Avengers: Endgame
Of course, the DVD and Blu-ray set for Avengers: Endgame won't be coming until August, but it's still nice you'll be able to see it in homes next month. In fact, there may be some overlap between the home entertainment and DVD releases, as the flick is re-entering theaters with a special release aimed at superfans (and that Avatar box office record.) We'll have to wait and see if the movie manages to make a slew of additional money with all the bells and whistles, but I'd have to guess that at the very least it will be a pretty big seller on DVD and Digital. At the very least, fans will be treated to an additional scene between Tony and Howard Stark, so that should be a treat.
All in all, it's not a bad way to begin wrapping your summer with some fun movie (or TV!) nights. Be sure to catch the releases when they come or see when they hit streaming with our guide.
