New to Amazon Prime Video in September

An Amazon Prime Video version of the British series Utopia will stream on the platform from September 25.

It’s billed as an eight-episode “twisted conspiracy thriller about saving the world while trying to find your place in it”.

From author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Sharp Objects), who’s also showrunner and executive producer, Utopia centres on a group of comic fans who meet online and bond over their obsession with a seemingly fictional comic (called “Utopia”).

Together, Becky (Ashleigh LaThrop), Ian (Dan Byrd), Samantha (Jessica Rothe), Wilson Wilson (Desmin Borges) and Grant (Javon “Wanna” Walton) unearth hidden meanings cloaked within the pages of “Utopia,” predicting threats to humanity.

They realise these are not just the makings of a conspiracy; they are genuine dangers coming alive right now in their world.

The high-stakes adventure brings the group face-to-face with the comic’s famed central character, Jessica Hyde (Sasha Lane), who joins them on their mission to save the world while harbouring secrets of her own.

The series also stars John Cusack as Dr. Kevin Christie, Rainn Wilson as Dr. Michael Stearns, Farrah Mackenzie as Alice,Christopher Denham as Arby, and Cory Michael Smith as Thomas Christie.

New from Friday will be the first three episodes of season two of The Boys (subsequent episodes wills stream weekly). Here’s the blurb:

The Boys [are] on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.

  1. Just thought I would mention Buffy the Vampire Slayer is actually the TV show and it’s in widescreen and in HD. It looks so much better than the awful DVDs :)

  2. Thanks, Trevor. I was going to check that out myself. Good to know Amazon’s gone the extra mile to present it properly.

  3. Watching it on DVD was so painful so it’s like watching it for the first time in HD. I think it’s also in 5.1 :)
