Coming to Amazon Prime in September 2016

Emily Blunt stars in 'Sicario,' a vivid, volatile thriller directed by Denis Villeneuve

Amazon Prime has announced highlights of its new September offerings, including one of the first Amazon Studios-produced features: the dark comedy Wiener-Dog (2016) with Greta Gerwig and Julie Delpy. It’s the first of many films that Amazon is releasing to theaters before offering to Amazon Prime subscribers. Other new films include the Oscar nominated Sicario with Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro, the spooky Puritan-era horror film The Witch, the horror comedy Scouts Guide to the Apocalypse, and the documentary Serena about tennis champion Serena Williams.

Also new: Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder (2012) with Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams, the gangster drama Bronson (2008) featuring Tom Hardy in a career-launching role, Oscar-winner Apollo 13 (1995) with Tom Hanks, the high-energy French action pictures District B13 (2004) and District 13: Ultimatum (2009), and the documentaries Freakonomics (2010) and Man on Wire (2008).

Two new Amazon original series debut this month: Woody Allen’s Crisis in Six Scenes featuring Elaine May and Miley Cyrus and Tig Notaro’s semi-autobiographical One Mississippi created with Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody. Also arriving is the third season of Amazon’s award-winning Transparent, the fan favorite Doctor Who: Season 9, and the complete runs of the network summer series American Gothic: Season 1 and Braindead: Season 1.

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.
