It's another busy month over at Netflix UK, headlined by the glittering adaptation of Neil Gaiman's 1990s comic book run. Tom Sturridge leads the cast as Morpheus, king of dreams, aiming to restore order to his kingdom after an occult ritual. It's a packed ensemble, including Gwendoline Christie, David Thewlis, Charles Dance, Sanjeev Bhaskar and Jenna Coleman.

Elsewhere, the headline movie release of August is Day Shift, in which Jamie Foxx plays a dad using a pool-cleaning job as a cover for his real vocation as a vampire hunter. There's also a comedy vehicle for Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Hart, who play friends reconnecting for a wild weekend in Me Time.
