Amazon Prime Adding 83 New Titles In August

Amazon next month plans to add 83 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including five originals.

The new title list in August will include season one of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, which stars John Krasinski in the title role as a CIA analyst forced into the field by an imminent terrorist attack.

Krasinski, who starred in the NBC comedy, The Office, will get a chance to exhibit his action chops as well in the role previously played by such Hollywood heavyweights as Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin. The cast also includes Abbie Cornish, Wendell Pierce and Noomi Rapace.

Also notable in August: Gringo, an Amazon original film starring Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton and David Oyelowo in a comic caper about the Mexican drug cartel (always good for laughs, I guess); and a three-episode season of Agatha Christie, an Amazon original drama about the famous fictional detective.
