New to Prime Video in July

The only original new series of note to premiere next month on Prime Video is the gladiatorial epic, Those About to Die (July 19).

It’s set in 79AD Rome, when a bored and restless population was kept in line by free food and spectacular entertainment: chariot racing and gladiator fighting. Reads the blurb:

Those About to Die delves into the world of the games—a world characterised by bloodlust, greed for money, the pursuit of power, and corruption.

The races at Circus Maximus are controlled by four Patrician-owned corporations, the Blue, Red, White, and Green factions, and shares in the four factions are the most valuable things in Rome.

As the taste in entertainment of the populace becomes more jaded and bloodthirsty, a specially designed stadium for gladiatorial combat is needed – the Colosseum.

The scale of the stadium as well as the gladiatorial and animal combats is enormous – same as the underworld with the flourishing betting business.

Underground, beneath the stands, thousands of people work and live—among them thousands who will die for the games.

Anthony Hopkins heads a cast that includes Iwan Rheon, Tom Hughes, Sara Martins, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Jojo Macari, Gabriella Pession, Dimitri Leonidas, Emilio Sakraya, Moe Hashim and Rupert Penry Jones.

Other July highlights include the return of the Rocky/Creed franchises (hopefully in 4K-UHD) and the first three Bad Boys movies while exclusive to Prime Video is the Guy Ritchie movie The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare.
