Amazon Prime Video’s July slate is slightly leaner than previous months, but it still welcomes five original series and one original movie to its platform. Oscar-nominated director Mike Leigh gives the big-screen treatment to the British Peterloo Massacre of 1819 with historical drama Peterloo. Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny finds the panda kids summoned to the Forbidden City, where they must put all their training to the test in an epic showdown. Other films hitting Prime Video include The Haunting of Sharon Tate starring Hilary Duff and Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum, which the Daily Dot ranked as one of the best new movies of SXSW 2019.

Check out the full listings below to find out what’s new on Amazon Prime this month.

New on Amazon Prime: Editor’s picks

The Beach Bum

The Beach Bum sees Matthew McConaughey transforming into the ultimate bohemian layabout, Moondog. The performance here is stellar. McConaughey’s inherent charisma is a perfect framing for the outlandish Moondog.“I’m a bottom-feeder, I gotta go low to get high,” says the washed-up poet who spends his days meandering around the seaside bars. Director Harmony Korine has moved onto the hedonistic portion of his career, examining human ugliness through the lens of excess and luxury. The Beach Bum has no cohesive theming or satisfying comeuppance for its despicable anti-hero and that’s deliciously true to life. Moondog is the same person he was at the beginning of the film when the credits roll. It can be equally appreciated as just a psychedelic, drug-fueled wild ride or as a thesis refuting the very concept of the hero’s journey. —Ignacio Martinez

Fleabag season 2

Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag has returned for a second and likely final season that is equal parts heartbreaking and hilarious. Set one year after season 1, Waller-Bridge’s titular protagonist is still grappling with the death of her best friend, Boo, and breaking the fourth wall to address the audience. But this season also presents a new love interest for Fleabag: a priest (Andrew Scott) who is marrying her dad and stepmom, which is especially humorous considering Fleabag is an atheist. Fleabag season 2 is a bittersweet goodbye to the audience, and a poignant portrait of women and the choices they face.  Tiffany Kelly

Hanna

Esme Creed-Miles gives a compelling performance as Hanna, a teenage girl on the run from the CIA, in this thriller miniseries that blends Jason Bourne action with teen drama. Hanna may not be too exciting for diehard fans of the original movie, which benefitted from its aesthetic flair and offbeat humor. But if you’re looking for a mainstream action thriller with a compelling emotional core, you’ve come to the right place. —Gavia Baker-Whitelaw
