New on Amazon Prime Video: All the Movies and TV Coming in August

As we roll on into August, Amazon Prime is giving us even more to sweat over. With a number of classics debuting across multiple genres and a few choice recent releases coming to the streamer, there really is something for everyone. So crank up that A/C and turn one of these great picks on while you fantasize about the sweater weather to come.

Prime’s strongest August additions come in the movies section, with the streaming giant bringing a little something for everyone. Geeky fave Watchmen joins delightfully cheesy sci-fi franchises like Teen Wolf and Species for the monster lovers in all of us. Meanwhile, if you’re in the mood for a nostalgic, royal teen romance, A Cinderella Story and The Prince and Me will be right up your alley. Blair Witch fans will be delighted to see the pioneering found-footage film coming to streaming, as well. Critically acclaimed recent arthouse releases like Mother!, Disobedience, and Woman Walks Ahead that are sure to entice any movie buff round out this fantastic collection.

Things are a bit more scant on the TV front, but Prime’s original John Krasinski-led Tom Clancy series closes out the month and is sure to draw buzz. There’s also the scarily relevant #MeToo: Now What? debuting at the beginning of August and a few other exciting prospects like Prime’s original Agatha Christie series.

Scroll down to see our complete list of all of Prime’s August arrivals.
