Coming to Amazon Prime in June 2016

Rami Malek stars in the USA TV thriller 'Mr. Robot.'

Along with the new movies and TV shows coming to Amazon Prime in June, Amazon is partnering with CBS to stream episodes of two new summer shows—BrainDead and American Gothic—free to Amazon Prime members four days after their respective network premieres. The line between broadcast TV and streaming gets fuzzier all the time.

Meanwhile, Amazon Prime picks the acclaimed Mr. Robot: Season 1, which premieres the same day that the second season begins on USA, and Downton Abbey: Season 6 and The Good Wife: Season 7, respectively the final seasons of these beloved shows. Other highlights include Trumbo (2015), featuring an Oscar-nominated performance by Bryan Cranston, the superb Love & Mercy (2015) starring Paul Dano and John Cusack playing Brian Wilson at different periods of his life, The Program (2016) with Ben Foster as Lance Armstrong, and the Holocaust drama Remember (2015) starring Christopher Plummer as an Auschwitz survivor.

Also new: the iconic spaghetti western The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966), the dreamily-photographed family friendly adventure The Black Stallion (1979), the lovely independent drama Ulee’s Gold (1997) with Peter Fonda, and Oliver Stone’s W. (2008) with Josh Brolin as George W. Bush.

Note that these are just highlights; Stream On Demand will be keeping an eye out for other notable films and TV shows that arrive through the month.
