A diverse range of titles is coming to Hulu in August for theatrelovers to enjoy.

In addition to well-known blockbusters destined for the stage like My Best Friend's Wedding, and the stage-to-screen adaptation of LGBTQ+ cult favorite Sordid Lives, titles include A Good Woman, based on an Oscar Wilde play and starring Oscar winner Helen Hunt and Tony winner Scarlett Johansson, and A Perfect Murder, the modern adaptation of Frederick Knott’s Dial M For Murder with Michael Douglass and Gwyneth Paltrow.

For an added bonus, episodes of new series Love in the Time of Corona, which features Broadway couple Leslie Odom, Jr. and Nicolette Robinson, will drop weekly.

Check out our list of highlights, with release dates in parentheses, and a full calendar below.

Scarlett Johansson in <i>A Good Woman</i>
Scarlett Johansson in A Good Woman Beyond Films

A Good Woman (2004) (8/1)
Based on Lady Windermere's Fan by Oscar Wilde, this movie adaptation stars Oscar winner Helen Hunt as Mrs. Erlynne and Tony winner Scarlett Johansson as Mrs. Windermere. The modernized (to the 1930s) tale of secret identities and jealousy co-stars Tom Wilkinson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Mark Umbers, and Milena Vukotic. Mike Barker directs.

A Perfect Murder (1998) (8/1)
Michael Douglass, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Viggo Mortensen star in this updated take of Frederick Knott’s play Dial M For Muder, in which a man attempts to executea murder-for-hire plot, only to have things go terribly awry. The twisty thriller features a screenplay by Patrick Smith Kelly and direction by Andrew Davis.

My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997) (8/1)
Revisit one of the ‘90s most enduringly popular romantic comedies before the musical adaptation premieres in the U.K. in 2021. Julia Roberts stars as Julianne Potter, a food critic who finds out her lifelong pal is getting married—only to realize that she might be in love with him. Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz, and Rupert Everett round out this pitch-perfect cast.

Sordid Lives (2000) (8/1)
Del Shores’ stage play comes to life on screen in this cult favorite, featuring a slew of stars like Olivia Newton-John, Leslie Jordan, Delta Burke, Bonnie Bedelia, Beth Grant, and Beau Bridges. The comedy follows the lives of a small-town Texas family dealing with the death of their matriarch.

Meryl Streep in <i>Stuck on You</i>
Meryl Streep in Stuck on You 20th Century Fox

Stuck On You (2003) (8/1)
Meryl Streep returning to the stage in a big musical may still be just a dream for theatregoers—but that doesn't mean that plotline here isn't just as fun. And maybe might result in a song-and-dance climax opposite Greg Kinnear in a musical production of Bonnie and Clyde. Plus there's Cher, playing herself!

Ordinary Love (2019) (8/3)
Oscar nominees and stage favorites Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson play a longtime married couple who find their easy relationship rocked by a cancer diagnosis. As a rough treatment begins to put a strain on them, the pair find healing in humor and years of happy memories. The movie comes from playwright Owen McCafferty.

Love in the Time of Corona (8/22)
Real-life married couple Leslie Odom, Jr. and Nicolette Robinson star in this new four-part limited series on Freeform about couples living in quarantine. Tony winner Odom Jr. (Hamilton) plays James, who is normally on the road for work but is now in quarantine with his partner Sade, played by Robinson (Waitress). Now under the same roof, the pair must reevaluate their relationship while raising their daughter. Episodes will be released after they air on Freeform.
