Hulu has released its coming and going list for the month of August. The streaming platform will welcome many classic films next month, including 'My Best Friend's Wedding,' and 'Top Gun.' The Tom Cruise classic 'Risky Business' will leave the platform this month.

Hulu will welcome a variety of classic films to the streaming platform in August, including 'Top Gun" and "Peanut Butter Falcon," making it the perfect time to escape the end-of-summer heat with a movie binge.

"Top Gun" will premiere on the streaming platform on Aug. 1. The sequel to the 1989 film"Top Gun: Maverick," was headed for a theatrical release in December, but the movie was recently moved to next summer due to the coronavirus pandemic. For those needing more 1980s Tom Cruise in their life (because who doesn't?), the Academy Award-winning film "Rain Man" also will hit the platform next month.

On Aug. 6, the streaming giant will host the "Peanut Butter Falcon." The feel-good movie stars Shia LaBeouf as an outlaw who makes an unlikely friendship with a man with Down syndrome. Other classics coming to the platform in August include the Academy Award-winning movie "Monster's Ball" starring Halle Barry, "3:10 to Yuma," and Baz Luhrmann's "Australia." Rom-com fans also will be happy to see the additions of "My Best Friend's Wedding" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral."

But alas, Hulu giveth and Hulu taketh away. Several films that premiere this month will be removed from the platform on Aug. 31. This includes "Top Gun," "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "3:10 to Yuma," and "Rain Man."  The movies "Moonstruck," "Risky Business," "Liar, Liar," and "Dirty Dancing" also will leave the platform at the end of August.
