The latest new offerings on Amazon Prime Video in August are highlighted by some high-profile originals and one of the best action movies of the last 10 years.

Next month, Prime members can check out the hot-topic documentary, “Free Meek,” a five-part docuseries following rapper Meek Mill’s incarceration and the hip-hop star’s turn towards activism after his release. Produced by Jay-Z, the series will explore the modern prison reform movement.

Later, near the month’s end, Amazon will premiere its next big original show, “Carnival Row.” Produced by Guillermo del Toro, the series is set in a Victorian-era fantasy world where a human detective (Orlando Bloom) must work with a faerie (Cara Delevingne) to stop a monstrous killer.

Beyond Amazon’s original offerings, members will be able to stream 2018’s “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” the sixth film in the Tom Cruise action spy series which was hailed upon its release as one of the best in the series and one of the best action films ever made. For those looking for some lower-octane thrills, “A Simple Favor” with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively will debut on Aug. 21.
