Amazon Video Announces New Shows And Movies For October




Amazon Video has released details of all the new TV shows and films it’s going to be rolling out onto its streaming service in October 2017. And it’s fair to say that the 60-plus titles deliver something for everyone. Including fans of AV quality, as it happens, as all four of the new Amazon Original Series on the list will be available in both 4K resolution and high dynamic range.

These four 4K/HDR Amazon Originals are season three of excellent coming of age comedy Red Oaks, and three debut series: Lore, Sigmund And The Sea Monsters, and Inside Edge. Lore is based on the popular podcast of the same name, and is pitched as an ‘unscripted horror anthology series dealing with scary and often paranormal true events that have spawned modern-day nightmares’.

Sigmund… is a live action kids’ show about two brothers who help a friendly sea monster avoid a hunter. Inside Edge is, as its name suggests, a series about cricket – or rather ‘which combines the worlds of cricket and entertainment’, according to Amazon.

Amazon is also rolling out two new Original films in October that underline the diversity of content Amazon seems to be aiming for these days. Documentary City Of Ghosts follows a group of activists trying forced to go undercover when their homeland is taken over by ISIS, while The Wall tells a fictional tale of two US soldiers pinned down by a relentless sniper in Iraq.

Other highlights being licensed to Amazon Video from other studios include season six of American Horror Story, season five of The Americans, superb Denis Villeneuve sci-fi movie Arrival, Coen Brothers classic Fargo, and one of my personal guilty pleasures, 1995’s Clueless, starring Alicia Silverstone.

Here’s the full list of October additions to Prime Video and Amazon Channels. And just to be clear, they’re organized according to launch date, not quality…

Game of Thrones won the Emmy for most outstanding drama series Monday at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.

The seventh season of Game of Thrones won the series its third Emmy in the category. It was the show’s second Emmy of the evening, after Peter Dinklage’s win for his role as Tyrion Lannister.

Game of Thrones beat out The Americans, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, This is Us, and Westworld.

Each season of Game of Thrones has been nominated for best drama at the Emmys since its first season debuted at the awards show in 2011. Seasons 5 and 6 both took home the Emmy in 2015 and 2016 respectively. A handful of other actors including Lena Headey, Kit Harington, and Emilia Clarke have also earned Emmy nominations over the years.

While the seventh season of Game of Throne is not widely regarded as the best of the series, it was certainly a big one and the hype around the show has not died down ahead of its next season.

Game of Thrones returns for its eighth and final season in 2019.
