A new month means new additions to Amazon Prime Video, and this August there are tons of excellent new movies and TV shows to get streaming. Brand new originals in the US this month include Val, A24's documentary about Val Kilmer, as well as the next star-studded season of Modern Love, Annette starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, and sci-fi series S.O.Z. Soldiers or Zombies. 

In the UK, new Amazon Originals are mystery thriller Cruel Summer, as well as heist movie The Vault, and the time-bending series Boss Level. The UK also gets Modern Love the same day as the US. 

We've rounded up every new movie and TV show arriving to Amazon Prime Video this month, and picked out our top three choices – so you can get planning those movie nights and binge-watches. You can also find the entire list for both the US and UK below, meaning you're ready to stream whichever side of the pond you're on. Scroll on to check out our complete list of all the new titles streaming on Amazon Prime this August.

A new documentary from A24 and directors Ting Poo and Leo Scott, Val is all about Val Kilmer. The documentary promises a personal look at the legendary actor, who has starred in movies like Top Gun, Batman Forever, and Tombstone. Much of the footage comes from Kilmer's own video camera, meaning we get priceless behind the scenes glimpses at the actor's time on movie sets. The documentary was released in theaters on July 23 following its Cannes debut, and lands on Amazon Prime this August 6. 

Modern Love season 2 – August 13

Season 2 of Amazon Prime's anthology series is arriving this month. The TV show takes its inspiration from The New York Times column of the same name, and this season's star-studded cast features Kit Harrington, Dominique Fishback, Lucy Boynton, Tobias Menzies, Minnie Driver, and Anna Paquin, to name a few. The trailer promises stories that include strangers meeting on a train, a divorced couple rekindling, and friends falling in love. 

Annette – August 20 (US)

Starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, this film sees a stand-up comedian (Driver) and an opera singer (Cotillard) in a high-profile relationship, which is strained by jealousy and bitterness. When their child Annette is born, she has her mother's beautiful singing voice – and she's also made of wood. The film, directed by Leos Carax, is partially sung, and is written by musical duo Sparks (Ron and Russell Mael). It arrives to theaters this August 6 after its Cannes debut, and hits Amazon Prime on August 20.
