“Summer may be coming to an end, but Prime Video is doing its best to keep the season of adventure going.
From gigantic journeys like Godzilla (2014) to smaller sagas like A Simple Favor, the streaming service is offering up a number of choice movies this August. Of course, they’re saving the most sought-after flicks for rent or purchase.
Throughout the month, Avengers: Endgame, The Souvenir, and Pokémon Detective Pikachu – two of which made our mid-year best of 2019 films list, and the third of which is freakin’ Pikachu in a hat – all become available through Prime Video. If you missed them in theaters or need to enjoy them just one more time, now’s your chance!”

More than 30m people have watched Netflix’s Murder Mystery; why?
The critics might have hated it, but this Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler-starring Agatha Christie pastiche broke the record for Netflix’s biggest opening weekend
Despite the critics (mostly) hating it, we now know that 30.9m Netflix account-holders watched Murder Mystery in its first three days of release. To put that in context: if two people watched the movie on each account, and you imagine them all paying the average $9 price of a cinema ticket, it would give the film an opening weekend of $556m, the third-largest ever. That is by no means a perfect formula, but nevertheless highlights a staggering performance for an Agatha Christie parody that stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. How did that happen?
‘Claws’ is the juiciest summer drama you aren’t watching
“Claws is one of three excellent shows returning in the next week, in which the leading women are on a quest to empower themselves. Unlike HBO’s award-winning Big Little Lies or FX’s acclaimed Pose, however, this one will air relatively inconspicuously.
It’s a shame, because TNT’s boisterous crime drama retains the kooky vibe it’s hoisted itself on for the past two years.
Everything about Claws is unapologetically loud, from the storylines to the costumes to the dialogue to, obviously, the on-brand nails. It doesn’t hold back from its unconventional premise: Five manicurists run a salon in the trashy city of Palmetto, Florida, that’s actually a front to launder money for the local drug lord………………….”
