What's New To Amazon Prime Video For August 2019: Movies, Originals, And TV Shows

Rewatch 300 or The Fifth Element for the millionth time.


Amazon offers up more than just quick and free shipping on items, there is a whole streaming service with movies, TV shows, and originals. And with August finally rolling around, Amazon Prime Video has revealed what's coming to its service for the month. There are a few movies and a new original series you're going to want to check out.

At the end of the month, on August 30, Season 1 of the Amazon Prime original Carnival Row comes to the service. At this year's Comic-Con, there were plenty of ads and parties that involved the new series in some fashion. The series stars Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne and takes place in a fantasy world inhabited by both humans and mythological creatures. These beasts aren't free, however, and they're forbidden to live their lives or love anyone. A string of murders by a monster causes the city the show takes place in to delve into chaos as the peace treaty between humans and creatures collapses.
