While it was released in Great Britain in October 2018, the historical drama Peterloo, directed by Cannes Film Festival favorite Mike Leigh, becomes available for Amazon Prime subscribers on July 3rd. Peterloo chronicles a bloody massacre Britain's military unleashed on its own people.
More than a decade after the bloody Napoleonic Wars finally ended, England was in rough shape. Responding to widespread poverty, unemployment, and famine, among other ills, somewhere between 60,000 and 100,000 peaceful protesters gathered in Manchester, England on August 10, 1819 to demand parliamentary reform, including granting universal suffrage.
The meeting was interrupted by cavalrymen attempting to arrest the resistance leaders and eventually charging into the crowds on horseback to deadly consequences.
In 2016's Captain America: Civil War, we saw one potential aftermath of superheroes unintentionally hurting innocent civilians while fighting supervillains. When writer Garth Ennis and artist Darick Robertson premiered their brutally amusing superhero comic The Boys in 2006, they weren't quite so forgiving. The superheroes of The Boys, for the most part, are examples of what happens when you give godlike physical power to the least responsible, most twisted individuals you can find. Keep watching the video to see everything good coming to Amazon Prime Video in July 2019!
