Amazon kicks off a big line-up to close out the summer, from Ron Howard’s Thai cave rescue drama to a slice of Paul Thomas Anderson, a dose of Liam Neeson and even Sly Stallone as a superhero. Plus, on the TV front, there’s the return of Making the Cut and another entry in Amazon’s All or Nothing sporting docufranchise.
