Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt team up to stop a designer drug that delivers dangerous superpowers in the action thriller “Project Power,” a new original movie debuting directly to Netflix in August, and not the only one.

With theaters openings still a question in mark in August, Netflix is delivering a small slate of releases to tide viewers over, among them the family-friendly action-adventure “The Sleepover” with Malin Akerman, inspirational drama “All Together Now” co-starring Justina Machado and Carol Burnett, and high school dance comedy “Work It” with Sabrina Carpenter,

Netflix has also picked up the two seasons of the “Karate Kid” spinoff “Kobra Kai” from YouTube, with future seasons to come, and launches “Teenage Bounty Hunters,” a high school action comedy about twin sisters with a double life, plus the animated “Wizards: Tales of Arcadia” from Guillermo del Toro, and the kids science series “Emily’s Wonder Lab,” along with new seasons of “Lucifer” and “Trinkets” and foreign language hits “The Rain” and “3%.”

Nonfiction programs include the documentary “John Was Trying to Contact Aliens,” about an electronics whiz who devoted his life to searching for signs of extraterrestrial life, and the series “Immigration Nation,” on the broken immigration system, science series “Connected,” and “High Score,” on the rise of video gaming.

Also arriving in August are”Casino Royale,” the first James Bond film starring Daniel Craig, Oscar-winning musical “Les Misérables,” and stand-up comedy from Sam Jay and Rob Schneider.
