New on Amazon Prime (August 2020): All the movies and shows coming to the streaming service

Roll up, roll up: we’ve got everything new on Amazon Prime in August waiting for you down below. It’s a surprisingly sizeable selection this month, too, with everything from 3:10 to Yuma, to Tobey Maguire’s unfortunate emo phase in Spider-Man 3 all making their presence keenly felt.

It’s Inception, though, that’ll grab most of the attention. With Tenet (maybe?) releasing in August and Christopher Nolan marking his big 5-0, there’s arguably never been a better time to relive what many consider his mind-bending masterpiece.

Elsewhere, there’s the first taste of The Boys’ new aftershow, Inside The Boys, hosted by Aisha Tyler. August’s edition will involve a recap of the first season, just in case any of you had somehow forgotten the ass bombs and bloody sprints from last July. Perfect prep for The Boys season 2.

Also new on Amazon this August is the usual lineup of new movies, shows, and reality series. They’re all listed by release date here so you could, feasibly, plan out your next month in binging well in advance.

For those in the UK, we’ve even got the full list of what’s new on Amazon Prime in August right at the bottom. Keep on scrollin'.
