Coming to Amazon Prime Video in August 2018

John Krasinski

Amazon Prime Video debuts the new original series Jack Ryan, starring John Krasinski as the Tom Clancy hero, and the Agatha Christie mystery miniseries Ordeal by Innocence with Bill Nighy, Alice Eve, and Matthew Goode in August.

New movies include the streaming debut of the Amazon Studios action comedy Gringo with David Oyelowo, Joel Edgerton, and Charlize Theron, Disobedience with Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams, and Darren Aronofsky’s divisive Mother! with Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem.

Older films rotating through the library include Joe with Nicolas Cage, Oscar-winners The Hurt Locker and The Elephant Man, cult movies Watchmen and The Usual Suspects, and the classic western High Noon with Gary Cooper.

Streaming TV includes the non-fiction programs America Divided and #MeToo: Now What?
