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

We’re already rounding the last corner of 2019, heading into October before rocketing onward into the holiday season, and with each astonishingly swift page that falls from the calendar, we pause to take stock of what each major streamer is adding (and subtracting) in the upcoming month. On to Amazon Prime Video’s October offerings we go.

We begin in movies, home to our single most-anticipated title landing on Amazon next month: French writer-director Claire Denis’ acclaimed English-language debut, A24 sci-fi drama High Life (Oct. 3), starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Andre Benjamin (aka Andre 3000 of Outkast) and Mia Goth as the crew of a damned and dangerous mission to deep space. The challenging, atmospheric film is one of Paste’s favorites of the year so far, with Dom Sinacola writing in his review that Denis “can make an audience believe, like few other directors, that anything can happen.” Elsewhere in film, Amazon is adding Oscar-nominated Steven Spielberg/Stanley Kubrick collaboration A.I. Artificial Intelligence, 1986 basketball classic Hoosiers, harrowing Jodie Foster drama The Accused, Harrison Ford-starring Tom Clancy adaptation Patriot Games and 1929 (!) musical comedy Glorifying the American Girl, among others, all of which debut on the streamer Oct. 1. Still more flicks trickle in later in the month (Kill Chain, Killing Zoe, Nobody’s Fool and In Search of Greatness), as well, though none of them move the needle all that much.

In the TV department, Amazon has a smattering of notable titles on the way, arguably none more so than the latest season of Goliath, premiering on Oct. 4. Season Three of the Golden Globe-winning, David E. Kelley-co-created legal drama finds underdog attorney Billy McBride (Billy Bob Thornton) taking on a new opponent: a billionaire farmer and his sister who are scheming to steal California’s most valuable resource—water. A week later on Oct. 11, we get Season 1B of Amazon’s Costume Quest, adapted from the Halloween adventure videogame of the same name, in which Wren, Reynold, Everett and Lucy return with new costumes, powers, and some unlikely friends in tow. Speaking of Halloween, Amazon has two new specials inbound on Oct. 25, including the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie “Halloween Spooktacular” and Just Add Magic: New Protectors. Two comedy series out of India debut their first seasons on as-yet-unknown dates in October, including Vir Das-hosted travelogue Jestination Unknown and innovative stand-up showcase One Mic Stand, while Modern Love, Amazon’s adaptation of the acclaimed New York Times true-life romance column of the same name, lands on Oct. 18. And don’t forget Season Three of British crime drama Unforgotten, streaming starting on Oct. 28. That would simply be too much irony to bear.

One last note before we let you go: NFL fans can watch Thursday Night Football for no extra cost, starting with Oct. 3’s Rams vs. Seahawks game, and Prime Video Channels users can catch the likes of HBO’s Watchmen and Silicon Valley, Madam Secretary, NCIS: Los Angeles and more via Amazon with the proper subscription(s).
