What’s new on Amazon Prime Video (July and August 2018)

Each month, Amazon adds a healthy dose of fresh content, providing viewers with a significant number of new and interesting things to watch. With so much new stuff, it can be hard to know what to watch without doing extensive research. Never fear, streaming enthusiasts and Amazon Fire TV owners: If you’re looking for the best of what’s new on Amazon Prime Video this July and August, we’re here to help.

August brings the first season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Amazon’s original series that casts John Krasinski as a modern-day version of Clancy’s titular CIA analyst. The series explores the iconic character’s early years, with the first season taking audiences on one of Jack Ryan’s earliest missions.

Another Amazon original project, the action comedy Gringo, also becomes available in August and boasts an all-star cast that includes David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton, Thandie Newton, Sharlto Copley, and Amanda Seyfried. The film follows a businessman (Oyelowo) on assignment in Mexico who ends up on the wrong side of the drug cartels.

There’s not much in the way of non-Amazon television series hitting the service in August, with the first seasons of Billy the Exterminator and Hangar 1: The UFO Files the most notable additions, but there are more than a few options for quality films. Franchise-spawning horror film The Blair Witch Project will debut on the service, as well as boxing drama Bleed for This and the dark superhero drama Watchmen (which is definitely not all-ages fare).

Below, you’ll find the full list of everything that’s new on Amazon Prime Video in July and August, with our recommended films and shows in boldface. And if you’re still not sure what to watch, we’ve got a list of the best movies streaming on Amazon, as well as a list of the best TV shows streaming on Amazon, to help you make an informed choice. If Amazon isn’t your only go-to streaming service, we’ve also got helpful articles on what’s best on Netflix and the best films on HBO‘s streaming service.
