Amazon Prime Announces Over 40 New Movies/Shows For August


Even though restrictions are beginning to be lifted in some parts of the world, the ongoing pandemic still continues. As a result, most folks are still spending longer stretches indoors, away from the bustling crowds. And to help keep us all entertained during these trying times largely spent inside, streaming movies and TV shows has been a very welcome solace.

Thankfully, new content is continually being added into the mix, and Amazon Prime‘s upcoming August update looks set to be a real boredom-killer. Indeed, next month will see Prime Video release a variety of new films and TV series to help to turn all those frowns upside down.

So, without further ado, strap yourselves in as we run through all the new additions that’ll be making their way to the streaming platform this August.
