best august movies iron giant 2

August is a precarious month for the film industry; nestled between the blockbuster summer schedule and the advantageous awards season of fall, it’s a quiet time for big budget fare. Though not quite the dumping ground of, say, February, it’s mostly a breather month – a calm before the prestige storm, and where studios can test their less-trusted properties.

It may evade easy categorization, but August can be a stellar month for film. It’s the season of R-rated comedies, violent road movies, and experiments. Some of the best mainstream films of the last 25 years came out in Leo season. We chose 15 of our favorite August releases, films that exceeded expectations – some economically, some critically, and some that linger on for less discernible reasons.

Blade reboot

There’s been chatter and rumors now and then about bringing back the vampire-hunting “Daywalker,” Blade. The character was revived for a short-lived television series, but it’s been almost 13 years since we last saw the stylish vamp killer on the big screen. A Netflix series similar to Daredevil and Jessica Jones was rumored after the character rights returned to Marvel, but nothing came of it. After the recent success of R-rated comic book movies like Logan and Deadpool, it now feels the right time to bring the character back…but according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, there are no immediate plans for him. But he’ll be back. “Someday.”

This all ties into a lesson Feige learned from Stephen Norrington‘s 1998 Blade movie.

Marvel Studios Blade update - Wesley Snipes

Over the years, there’s been speculation, rumors, and stories about how or when we might see Blade return, but rarely is there any news confirming any movement on another Blade film. We heard about Wesley Snipesdesire to play the daywalker again, a possible Netflix series from Marvel Studios, a rumored film about Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey, and, just the other day, Kate Beckinsale said they once discussed bringing Blade into the Underworld franchise. Beckinsale said Marvel had plans for the character, so that’s one of the reasons why it didn’t work out, but according to Marvel President Kevin Feige, there aren’t any immediate plans for the vampire slayer.

Blade 2 - Wesley Snipes

Over the past couple years, there has been plenty of discussion about the future of Marvel’s vampire hybrid character Blade. Brought to the big screen before the comic book craze truly began with X-Men in 2000, Blade was played by Wesley Snipes for three films, including one directed by Guillermo del Toro and one starring future comic book star Ryan Reynolds. But since then, fans have been hoping for more.

We’ve heard rumblings of Blade 4 with Wesley Snipes coming back as the titular character, a potential Netflix TV series from Marvel Studios (who reacquired the rights to the character in 2013) and even a movie following Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey. Now confirmation of some kind of Marvel project comes from a surprising source: Underworld star Kate Beckinsale.
