Highlights from what’s new on Amazon Prime Video and Freevee in August

Thirteen Lives (August 5)

Apollo 13 director Ron Howard is clearly no stranger to making films about real-life daring rescues (coincidentally with the number 13 in their titles). In Thirteen Lives, the award-winning filmmaker takes on the Tham Luang cave rescue, a 2018 incident that saw 12 junior soccer players and their assistant coach rescued from a cave where they were at high risk of drowning with no way out. He retraces the story of their rescue with a star-studded cast.


A League of Their Own (August 12)

Based on and inspired by Penny Marshall’s beloved film of the same name, A League of Their Own follows a group of women breaking into the male-dominated world of baseball. Widening the lens from Marshall’s film, the Amazon Prime Video series looks at a broader cross-section of women, including those fighting for inclusion outside the women’s league.


Cosmic Love (August 12)

It was only a matter of time before somebody took the prevalence of astrology on dating sites and used it as the basis for a dating reality show. In this Prime Video original, a group of singles look for their true love through astrological matchmaking. Will the stars align, or will they find love on different terms?


Sprung (August 19)

In the early days of COVID-19, prison populations were at very high risk of contracting the virus at a time when death rates were alarmingly high. Freevee original series Sprung uses that context as the backdrop for a timely comedy about non-violent offenders released during the early pandemic. With few options available to them, one group plans to make some quick cash by less than legal means.


Samaritan (August 26)

Action icon Sylvester Stallone makes his Amazon debut in Samaritan. In it, he plays a trash collector with a secret past. When a boy begins to suspect he’s the once infamous vigilante superhero Samaritan, now living in retirement, he has to decide whether he’s ready to dust off the old spandex.
