The Defenders, Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, Stephen King's The Mist and Death Note among August highlights on Netflix

Marvel's team of small screen superheroes assemble in the first season of The Defenders (18 Aug) which brings together Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist to defend New York City. Sigourney Weaver has been added to the cast as the mysterious villain Alexandra.

Also in TV, Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (4 Aug) and a new coming-of-age drama about an autistic teenager Atypical (11 Aug). Kathy Bates stars as a cannabis dispensary owner in Disjointed (25 August), a comedy co-created by Chuck Lorre, and Stephen King's The Mist (25 Aug) also begins on Netflix after its premiere on Spike in June.

In film, Adam Wingard's adaptation of Japanese manga series, Death Note (25 Aug), starring Nat Wolff, Willem Dafoe and Lakeith Stanfield looks as slick and stylish as the director's 2014 endeavour The Guest. When a supernatural book that has the ability to kill people lands in the hands of a high-school kid chaos ensues. Marlon Wyans stars in Naked (11 Aug), a Groundhog Day-like comedy where he has to relive his wedding day over and over again and Noomi Rapace stars in Tommy Wirkola's post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller What Happened to Monday? (18 Aug).

Love & Mercy (4 August) is one to watch whether you are a fan of The Beach Boys or not. It explores Brian Wilson's struggle with mental illness over two different time periods and stars Paul Dano and John Cusack. Elizabeth Banks does wonderful work as Melinda Ledbetter and Dano turns in a truly stirring performance as the musical genius in action in the 1960s as he pieces together Pet Sounds.
