Amazon Prime Video Top 10 Shows and Movies: New and Trending Today, August 11 – TV Guide

Two new movies popped up on Amazon Prime Video yesterday, but only one of them made Prime Video’s top 10 movies and shows list: the 2022 action-comedy-romance film The Lost City. It stars Sandra Bullock as a romance novelist and Channing Tatum as her books’ cover model, and follows them as they get caught up in an adventure on an island. It’s Hollywood, through and through. The other new film to Prime Video is Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which is a surprising no-show on the list given that kids movies, especially ones as popular as Sonic, are usually a shoo-in for these lists. I guess it’s easier to let kids flip around Netflix than risk them buying 20 boxes of Legos and $300 in Roblox gift cards on Amazon on your Prime account. 

Below, we’re listing the Top 10 shows and movies on Amazon Prime Video and also letting you know which ones are good. We’ll also list what’s coming next to Amazon Prime Video in the near future so you know what will be on the Top 10 list soon.

New Amazon Prime Video releases coming soon:

  • A League of Their Own Season 1 – A TV adaptation of Penny Marshall’s 1992 film about an all-female baseball team, starring Abbi Jacobson, D’Arcy Carden, and Chanté Adams (Aug. 12, TV Guide review)
  • Cosmic Love Season 1 – Reality dating series that matches horny singles by their astrological signs… what could go right? (Aug. 12)
