Prime Video reveals 6 must-watch new arrivals in September
Prime Video will be giving us brand new entries in the worlds of John Wick, The Boys, and loads more.
Fantasy, rom-com, action, mysterious documentaries, superheroes and potentially Oscar-winning biographies are all on the horizon for Prime Video subscribers come September, with their brand new and exclusive movies and shows for the month kicking off with...
THE WHEEL OF TIME: SEASON 2
Rosamund Pike returns to the high-fantasy show, once again setting out to discover if one of her powerful friends will help defeat an almighty evil, or assist it in breaking the world as they know it. The first season was a bit of a mixed bag (55 on Metacritic), but it amassed a big enough fanbase to get this follow-up. New episodes from the second season will arrive weekly, with the first arriving on 1 September.
SITTING IN BARS WITH CAKE
A single woman is given a task by her best friend: bake a cake and bring it to a local bar, with the hope of the baked goods sparking a conversation with strangers and help build her own confidence. Sounds like a cute rom-com-dram to us. The movie arrives on Prime Video on 8 September.
THE CONTINENTAL: FROM THE WORLD OF JOHN WICK
A three-part event series, with each episode being the length of a feature film, it picks up decades before the events of John Wick, in the early days of Winston (played by Ian McShane in the movies, here played by Colin Woodell), and his interactions with the manager of the Continental (Mel Gibson) in the 1970s. The first of these specials lands on Prime Video on 22 September, with the remaining two arriving on 29 September and 6 October.
Gael Garcia Bernal could be one of Cillian Murphy's biggest competitors for the Best Actor Oscar (more about that here), as he heads up this biography of gay wrestler Saúl Armendáriz in the 1980s. At the time of writing, the movie has a score of 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, and will be available to watch on Prime Video from 22 September.
THE FAKE SHEIKH
The three-part documentary series tells the story of British reporter Mazher Mahmood, whose exposés generated headlines by his use of false identities to ensnare royals, sports stars, politicians, celebrities and members of the public. The first of the documentary episodes will be available from 26 September.
Set within the world of The Boys (arguably Prime Video's best and most successful original series to date), this show will take us inside the walls of a college tailored specifically to train the next generation of potential super heroes. But all that power, mixed with teenage mood swings and sex drives... things are gonna get messy. The first episode will be available to watch from 29 September.
