The Outlaws (August 5, Prime Video)

Just when you think you’re out, they bring you back! Season 2 of the British detective comedy from Elgin James and Stephen Merchant The Outlaws sees the group of misfit outsiders – including Christopher Walken – serve community service thrown back into the world of organized crime when a drug lord comes looking for his money they “found”. As if wearing those orange vests wasn’t enough. [Trailer]

Thirteen Lives (August 5, Prime Video)

Ron Howard directs this thriller about the 2018 Tham Luang Thai cave rescue of a men’s soccer team and their coach by an international group of cave divers. It’s one of three rescue projects, including the already published (and excellent) National Geographic documentary The rescuewhich focuses on divers and rescue efforts and is on Disney+, and Netflix’s upcoming limited series Tham Luang, which focuses on survivors. This movie covers the whole shebang, with Viggo Mortensen, Colin Farrell and Joel Edgerton playing the heroes. [Trailer]

Licorice Pizza (August 5, Prime Video)

One of the most beloved films of 2021 is Paul Thomas Anderson’s teen romance, which was nominated for three Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. Set in 1973 in the San Fernando Valley, Southern California, it follows a 15-year-old actor (Cooper Hoffman) and his budding relationship with a photographer’s assistant in his early twenties (Alana Haim).

A league apart (August 12, Prime Video)

Penny Marshall’s classic 1992 baseball movie gets extra innings in this eight-episode series about building an all-female World War II baseball team. The setup is essentially the same, but the longer runtime — and 30 years of progressive cultural movement — means the Prime Video series will be able to explore ideas like race and sexuality in greater depth. The cast is also full of stars, including Abbi Jacobson (who co-created the series), D’Arcy Carden, Chanté Adams, Kate Berlant, Roberta Colindrez and Nick Offerman. [Trailer]

Samaritan (August 26, Prime Video)

This dark superhero movie was supposed to save the day in 2020, but a series of delays pushed it back to 2022 and onto Amazon Prime Video instead of theaters. Sylvester Stallone stars as a superhero named Samaritan who goes into hiding for 20 years until a young boy finds out who he is and encourages him to clean up the streets again.
