While the summer sun and heat pounds down on you, you may want to hang out inside. The air conditioning is cool, and you have your TV where you can binge-watch Netflix all day long. For the month of August, the streaming service has three big movies arriving, and they're big because they're about dinosaurs. Aside from that, there are plenty of other new movies, TV shows, and original programming headed your way.

On August 1, the original Jurassic Park trilogy arrives: Jurassic Park, The Lost World, and Jurassic Park III. Relive your favorite moments like when a theme park with real dinosaurs fails and the dinos eat a bunch of people, or when people go back to the island and the dinos eat a bunch of people, or when Jeff Goldblum hung out shirtless. All of these moments can be relived on the first of the month.

Fans of the Avatar: The Last Airbender will have something to get excited about on August 14. The Legend of Korra will be hitting the service on August 14. The show takes place 70 years after the events of the TV show where the titular character is attempting to master the final element. Along the way, she discovers crime and evil and tries her best to get rid of it.

Finally, the sci-fi series The Rain returns for Season 3 on August 6. The show follows Danish siblings as they try to survive in a world where the rain carried a virus that killed almost everyone in Scandinavia. From there, they meet up with other survivors and realize the world is a far different place.

Below, you'll find the films and TV shows coming to Netflix for August.
