New to Amazon Prime Video in August

Kiwi hip-hop documentary Dawn Raid is among the premieres Amazon Prime Video has confirmed for August.

The story of two Manukau Polytechnic students who turned a bootleg t-shirt business and Hip-Hop night at a local bar in Otara into the influential Dawn Raid Entertainment empire will stream from August 27.

Also new next month will be the anime franchise Evangelion:3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon a Time, APV originals Nine Perfect StrangersKevin Can F**K Himself and Cruel Summer, and seasons two of Star Trek: Lower Decks and romance anthology Modern Love.

Evangelion:3.0+1.01 Thrice Upon a Time is the fourth and final chapter of the new theatrical edition of the anime film that was most-watched movie in Japanese theatres in 2021 (as of last month).

In the eight-part Nine Perfect Strangers, nine stressed city dwellers with vastly different backgrounds check into a health and wellness resort where they are dosed with illegal drugs for sinister reasons.

Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, Asher Keddie, Samara Weaving, Bobby Cannavale, Luke Evans and Michael Shannon star.

Cruel Summer is an unconventional 10-part psychological thriller told from alternating perspectives.

It’s set over three summers in the ’90s, when a beautiful and popular teen goes missing, and a seemingly unrelated girl transforms from a sweet and awkward outlier to the most popular girl in town.

Olivia Holt, Chiara Aurelia, Michael Landes, Froy Gutierrez, Harley Quinn Smith, Allius Barnes, Blake Lee, Brooklyn Sudano and Sarah Drew star.

Kevin Can F**K Himself stars Annie Murphy as the prototypical Sitcom Wife: She’s beautiful and can take a joke even if it is directed at her, and she’s married to a guy who must have won a marriage lottery — until she finally wakes up to and revolts against the injustices in her life.

Reads the blurb: “Kevin Can F**K Himself breaks convention and blends multi-camera comedy with single-camera realism to make us ask, who and what have we been laughing at all of these years?”
