New to Prime Video in September

Next month on Prime Video will be a blast for John Wick fans, with the first three movies debuting on the platform the same day as The Continental: From The World of John Wick (September 22).

This three-part “event” explores the origin of the iconic hotel-for-assassins centrepiece of the John Wick universe through the eyes and actions of a young Winston Scott. Reads the blurb:

As he’s dragged into the Hellscape of 1970’s New York City to face a past he thought he’d left behind, Winston charts a deadly course through the hotel’s mysterious underworld in a harrowing attempt to seize the hotel where he will eventually take his throne.

Mel Gibson, Colin Woodell, Mishel Prada, Ben Robson, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Nhung Kate, Jessica Allain, Ayomide Adegun, Jeremy Bobb and Peter Greene star.

Another spin-off, Gen V, springs from the world of The Boys (September 29). It explores the training of the first generation of superheroes to know about Compound V, and that their powers were injected into them, rather than God-given.

When the university’s dark secrets come to light, the students must come to grips with what type of heroes they are going to become.

The other major TV highlights for September are S2 of The Wheel of Time (September 1) and the full first season of Neighbours (September 25) while among the movie premieres are:

  • Sentinelle (September 8): Jonathan Cohen plays celebrated tough-guy cop who moonlights as a variety singer on the island of Reunion. While busy with his concerts and the release of his album, a wave of violent crimes shakes the island. It should be the case of a lifetime but Sentinelle doesn’t really have the inclination to investigate.
  • Sitting in Bars with Cake (September 8): Best twentysomething friends Jane (Yara Shahidi) and Corinne (Odessa A’zion) navigate life in Los Angeles in this true life-inspired “madcap joyride through some of L.A.’s most colourful watering holes”.
  • A Million Miles Away (September 15): The real-life story of how NASA flight engineer José Hernández emerged from a rural village in Mexico to land 200 miles above the Earth in the International Space Station. It’s billed as “a dazzling tribute to the loyalty and tenacity of the entire Hernández family, as well as anyone who dares to dream”.
  • Cassandro (September 22): Another true story, about Saúl Armendáriz, a gay amateur wrestler from El Paso who rose to international stardom after he created the character Cassandro, the “Liberace of Lucha Libre”.

Other movie premieres include Knock at the Cabin (September 3), Till (September 10) and Cocaine Bear (September 24) while among the other TV newcomers are The Kidnapping Day S1 (September 14), Killer Coaster S1 (September 15) and Ski Jumpers S1 (September 30).

There also will be two WBNA games: Washington Mystics at Las Vegas Aces (September 1) and Los Angeles Sparks at New York Liberty (September 7).
