September sees loads of new films – and a few telly shows – joining Amazon Prime Instant Video in the UK. Here's our low-down...
As streaming services go, Amazon Prime Instant Video is one of the youngest names around.
There’s a decent library of entertainment behind the relative-newbie moniker, though. That’s partly due to the fact that the website used to be LoveFilm, before Amazon bought them out.
In September 2015, some big films and telly shows are coming to stream on Amazon Prime Instant Video. Here’s our list, to keep you primed and ready (arf)…
Criminal Minds (seasons 1 to 9)

Awkward (season 4)
Superman – Unbound (2013)

Disney-Pixar's smash hit Inside Out is coming home on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere October 13th and on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack and On-Demand November 3rd! It will include an extensive line-up of bonus features including deleted scenes, including the theatrical short film Lava, “Paths to Pixar: The Women of Inside Out,” and the all-new animated short “Riley’s First Date?”
Inside Out takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness.

With Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust reeling in $600 million at the worldwide box office, Pixar has given fans a sneak peek of one of the shorts accompanying Inside Out's home release.
A year on from the events of the movie, a young boy calls on Riley while she's at home in San Francisco.
Her parents naturally start to panic at the idea of their daughter dating, while Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust all have their own views on the matter.
Is this the start of a budding romance, or will Riley have her heartbroken? We'll have to wait to find out.
The ending to Toy Story 3 seemed pretty final when it closed with a sense of nostalgia and love on its vision of Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the Andy toy gang. In fact, it felt like it had to be the end since Woody and the whole collection were 'set free' by Andy to be the playthings of another child altogether. So where do you go with Toy Story 4?
Apparently in the direction of a love story.
While chatting at Disney’s D23 celebrations, John Lasseter, director of Toy Story and Toy Story 2, as well as chief creative officer of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, revealed where they’re taking the fourth film. By commanding the directorial reins again, Toy Story 4 will be Lasseter’s first personally helmed film since Cars 2, »
Pixar sure does love its sequels these days. Cars 2, Monsters University, Finding Dory, Toy Story 1-4 (yes, there's a fourth in the works), and now... Inside Out 2? Kind of. Riley's First Date is a short film that takes place one year after the movie and will be making its debut as an extra on the home video release of Inside Out. The title is pretty self-explanatory, so you should have a good idea of what's in store, but Yahoo has a clip that showcases the running...

Pixar sure does love its sequels these days. Cars 2, Monsters University, Finding Dory, Toy Story 1-4 (yes, there's a fourth in the works), and now...Inside Out 2? Kind of. Riley's First Date is a short film that takes place one year after the movie and will be making its debut as an extra on the home video release of Inside Out. The title is pretty self explanatory so you should have a good idea of what's in store, but Yahoo has a clip that showcases the running thoughts of Riley and her family when a boy shows up at her door. It's cute and simple and honestly probably about as extensive of a "sequel" as we'd like to see to Inside Out right now. What makes the movie so brilliant is how it breaks down a pivotal moment in a young person's...

Pixar Animation Studio’s The Good Dinosaur asks the question: “What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?” Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa) makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.
This year will give us two new Pixar films. Whether The Good Dinosaur will best Inside Out remains to be seen, but the trailer is certainly full of all the elements that make for an entertaining animated family film. There’s the characters that kids can root for in Arlo and his human friend, as well as identify with if they tend to feel a little alone sometimes »

Pixar's latest animated feature Inside Out is continuing to go from success to success.
After topping the UK box office last weekend and battling with Jurassic World for the top spot in the Us earlier in July, Disney's Pixar now has more to celebrate as Inside Out passes the $600 million worldwide box office mark.
Inside Out review: Pixar's charming take on childhood
The global total for the film currently stands at $602.29 million, with the domestic market generating $329.59 million while $272.7 million came from the international market, Deadline reports.
There is joy and wonder in this marvelous mounting of a human mind, and a thrilling audacity in how it dares at such a strange and impossible thing. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love Pixar’s films
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
I have some misgivings about this Inside Out movie. Only five emotions in a little girl’s head? Only Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness? Maybe things will get more complicated when she’s an older girl… but even the grownups here have only those five emotions. I dunno about that. Cuz in my not-little-girl head right now, Doubt is telling me “There’s no way you can do justice to this movie, so don’t even bother trying,” and Procrastination is agreeing, saying, “See? It was right to put off writing this review. Let’s put it off some more, »

Pixar returns to form with a dazzlingly imaginative adventure set inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl
The new Pixar animation Inside Out could easily have been called Out There. It’s as bizarre, imaginative and authentically psychedelic as anything produced in mainstream animation. At this point in the fortunes of the once-infallible creative powerhouse, you wouldn’t have bet on Pixar coming up with anything very outré. Bought by Disney in 2006, the studio hadn’t produced anything truly inspired that wasn’t a sequel since Up in 2009. Given the humdrum quality of Cars 2 and Monsters University and 2012’s well-intentioned but forgettable Brave, it seemed as if the studio had lost its penchant for exotic risk.
But Inside Out is in the top rank of Pixar productions with its combination of audacity, intelligence, wit and emotional reward. Directed and co-written by Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc and Up) and co-directed by Ronnie del Carmen, »

Could all the Pixar movies from Toy Story to The Good Dinosaur take place in the same universe?
Writer Jon Negroni came up with one of the most detailed (and convincing) fan theories of all time a few years ago, which explains how each film takes place at a certain point in the same timeline, and that there is an overall story involving humans, machines, animals and emotions.
It would take far too long to explain every single connection, but the timeline begins with Brave in the 14th century, and ends with Monsters Inc around the year 5000. In a (relatively complicated) nutshell:
14th-15th Century: The magic used in Brave is what makes animals and inanimate objects behave like humans, and leads to the creation of superheroes.
1950s-1960s: The Incredibles' Buddy creates AI bots and the Zero Point Energy, leading to the eradication of heroes and to sentient objects. »
I really, really cannot wait for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Is anyone with me? Oh, all of you. We’re edging closer and closer to that December 18th release, and we’re hoping that Disney and Lucasfilm are going to show us more online in the coming weeks. It looks like the company have something up their sleeves for the middle of August though, as a press release reveals that Disney plan to show off footage from Star Wars as well as their other upcoming properties including Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming Pixar slate at their huge fan event, D23 Expo 2015.
Marvel didn’t pack for San Diego this year, and we not present at Comic-Con to present anything from their upcoming slate, or make any kind of announcements – so are they holding out for their parent company’s Expo? We certainly hope so.

The Good Dinosaur has been in production since what seems like the Ice Age, but the movie will finally be released in time for the holidays this Thanksgiving, giving the world it's second Disney Pixar movie of 2015! Inside Out, released this past June, was an instant box office hit, and has been called a true masterpiece of animation. Will The Good Dinosaur be able to live up to that same hype? The first full trailer arrives, following the teaser that debuted earlier this year, and it promises to be something special and quite unique.
Directed by Peter Sohn, The Good Dinosaur asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa) makes an unlikely human friend. »
If you haven’t seen “Inside Out,” the newest delight from the great minds at Pixar, please do yourself a favor and go see it immediately. While it may not be an insta-classic in the vein of “Toy Story” or “Finding Nemo” – although, let’s be honest, that’s a high bar to clear – their new picture really does deliver on all fronts. On one hand, it’s a nearly-pitch perfect family film, replete with eye-popping, sometimes even psychedelic visuals and rolling along at a rollicking, quick clip. And it would be great, if that were all there was to it. But it is the film's bold willingness to confront and address the viewer’s most latent fears and anxieties that takes it from being just another well-crafted Pixar flick to being one of 2015’s best (so far). Anyone who’s been keeping track throughout the years can hardly be surprised. »

Yesterday, we reported that Universal's Jurassic World took the top spot at the box office for the fourth week in a row, earning an estimated $30.9 million, just barely beating out Pixar's Inside Out, which took in $30.1 million. Today, Deadline reports that the actual box office figures have Inside Out pulling away with a narrow victory, earning $29.7 million, barely beating Jurassic World's actual tally of $29.4 million. The actual figures have yet to be confirmed, but this means that Inside Out will not be able to break the obscure record of highest-grossing film never to hit #1 at the box office, held by the 2002 indie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which earned $241.3 million without ever claiming the top spot.
Inside Out has taken in $245.8 million since opening on June 19, which currently ranks as the 7th highest Pixar movie of all time. It will most likely pass Monsters Inc., The Incredibles and Monsters University sometime this week, »
As we told you yesterday, the box office projections for first and second place this weekend were very close. They just weren’t close enough to knock Jurassic World out of the top spot. Universal is reporting a third-weekend estimate of $54.2 million for its blockbuster, or a drop of 49%. For those keeping track, that makes this the third weekend in a row that the dinosaurs have ruled the box office – another impressive feat to add to Jurassic World’s giant list of accomplishments. Assuming chart positions do not change when final numbers are released on Monday, why is a third weekend in first place so impressive? It’s an achievement that few films reach during the summer months. That’s because the summer schedule is designed to give big titles a maximum of two weekends to shine before the next potential blockbuster comes up to bat. In the past decade »

Just as Inside Out goes deep into the brain of an 11-year-old girl, we’re about to go deep into the background of Pixar’s latest and, some say, greatest adventure.
Inside Out is the result of five years of careful labor under sometimes difficult circumstances. Various story ideas were tried and discarded or reworked and, due to troubles with its neighbour film, The Good Dinosaur, there hasn’t been a Pixar film since 2013’s Monsters University (and not a non-sequel since 2012’s Brave).
It was worth the wait; the movie shows all of the incredible, painstaking craftsmanship Pixar is known for. Despite the simple-seeming idea of figures that represent emotions, the five come across as fully realised people. Each of them is capable of the feelings represented by the others and more. Sadness isn’t always sad just because she’s “sadness,” she’s also sad because no »
