The Green Knight

A24

Dev Patel leads the cast of this acclaimed indie film, which is based on a 14th century poem about Sir Gawain, nephew of the legendary King Arthur. While steeped in folklore, viewers should be warned that this isn’t an action flick in the vein of Guy Ritchie’s Legend of the Sword, but rather a more slow-paced and thoughtful drama which occasionally veers into completely surreal territory.

When the monstrous Green Knight appears before Arthur’s court one day with an intriguing challenge. He offers any knight the chance to strike him with his axe, but only on the condition that he may return their blow one year later. Gawain jumps at an opportunity to prove himself, chopping off the mysterious creature’s head, but not anticipating that it would survive the attack and go laughing into the night. The following year, he goes on a journey to find the Green Knight and settle their debt.

The Green Knight comes courtesy of director David Lowery, whose measured approach to the source material creates some truly atmospheric scenes, while the addition of Daniel Hart’s haunting score often drives the tension to new heights. Patel gives an excellent performance in the lead role, portraying an unlikely hero who is flawed yet utterly compelling, with memorable supporting roles going to Barry Keoghan (Eternals), Joel Edgerton (The Underground Railroad), and Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider). – David Craig

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

Amazon

Amazon Prime Video bagged the exclusive rights to this film adaptation of the popular stage musical of the same name, which follows a 16-year-old boy who overcomes his bullies at school by forging a new identity as a drag queen. With the performative art being more popular than ever right now thanks to the likes of RuPaul, this is a story that’s sure to resonate with many viewers – and remarkably, it’s based on true events (see BBC Three documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16).

This incarnation features a different cast to the stage production, with newcomer Max Harwood taking the highly sought after title role and earning critical acclaim for his performance. The supporting cast includes familiar faces Sarah Lancashire, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar and Richard E Grant, while West End star Layton Williams and the real Jamie himself pop up in cameo appearances (so keep your eyes peeled).

Some critics took issue with the film’s somewhat sugar-coated plot, as there’s little in the way of tension over whether Jamie will achieve his dreams. However, for many viewers, I suspect that level of unbridled positivity and celebration is exactly what they’re looking for. Indeed, if it’s feel-good viewing your after, Jamie’s uplifting story should have no trouble putting a smile on your face. – David Craig

Palm Springs

Hulu

Remarkable romcoms have become a rare commodity in the streaming era, with few modern movies managing to stand out in the endless sea of generic, paint-by-numbers “chick-flicks” regularly churned out by the countless platforms we subscribe to. Thankfully, Palm Springs – the sci-fi romcom starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti – swooped in last year to save the day, giving the genre a much-needed shot of adrenaline.

Best described as Groundhog Day meets Four Weddings and a Funeral, Palm Springs follows Sarah (Milioti), an apathetic maid-of-honour just trying to get through her sister’s California wedding when she finds herself trapped in a time loop with charming, care-free wedding guest Nyles (Samberg) and the pair are forced to relive the same day over-and-over again.

A fast-paced, hugely funny and refreshing take on the time loop concept, Palm Springs features stunning performances from Milioti and Samberg, an outstanding supporting cast made up of J.K. Simmons, Meredith Hagner, Camila Mendes and Peter Gallagher, and surprisingly twists that will have you returning for multiple viewings. – Lauren Morris

Sound of Metal

Riz Ahmed spent eight months of his life preparing for the lead role in this film, learning to play the drums and communicate in sign language. And it shows. Ahmed plays a punk metal drummer, Ruben living the dream – he’s out on the road with his girlfriend, Lou (Olivia Cooke) playing gigs and feeding off the adrenaline. They have music and each other, nothing else is required.

But he’s catapulted into a nightmare when he wakes up and discovers his hearing is rapidly declining as a result of a ruptured ear drum. Concerned the crisis will throw him back into his old patterns of drug abuse, Lou sends him to a deaf-friendly commune, where he must learn to accept his new life. The question is, can he ever lean into his new existence, or will he always pine for the way things were?

This unusually spiritual, soul-searching film was 13 years in the making, earned six Oscar nominations and was clearly a labour of love for everyone involved. If the test of a good movie is whether you’re still thinking about it a week later, The Sound of Metal passes with flying colours. And the central performance by Ahmed is just spell-binding. – Emma Bullimore

The Mauritanian

Amazon Prime Video

It may have been a year without big blockbuster screenings and red carpet premieres, but that hasn’t stopped Golden Globe-winning films, like Kevin Macdonald’s The Mauritanian, from reaching would-be cinema-goers at home. Based on the true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, this legal drama stars The Serpent’s Tahar Rahim as Slahi, a Mauritanian engineer who was detained without charge or trial by the US government at Guantanamo Bay for 14 years, during which time he was subjected to horrific torture techniques.

Featuring a heart-breaking and captivating performance from Rahim, The Mauritanian follows Slahi as he’s finally helped by pro-bono lawyers Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) and Teri Duncan (Shailene Woodley) who fight for years to get him the trial he deserves whilst dealing with redacted government documents, uncooperative officials and a passionate military prosecutor played by Benedict Cumberbatch. An enlightening watch, The Mauritanian tells Slahi’s remarkable and tragic story, shining a light on the cruelty of the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation techniques” after 9/11 with a terrific turn from the award-winning Foster. – Lauren Morris

Parasite

Curzon

The first non-English language film to win Best Picture at the Oscars, South Korean black comedy Parasite re-wrote the record books when it was released in 2019. But beyond the awards glory (the movie ended up winning four Academy Awards, two BAFTAs and a Golden Globe), this is just a thoroughly entertaining watch. You’ll quickly settle into the subtitles as you learn about a struggling family of four – two parents and two twenty-something children – living in cramped conditions in the city.

One by one, they hustle their way into well-paid jobs with the unsuspecting Parks family, pretending to be qualified as an English tutor, an art therapist, a chauffeur and a housekeeper. It’s all harmless enough to start with, and they settle into their new way of life, pulling the wool over their employers’ eyes. But the caper soon turns into a dark, unsettling tale, as unexpected twists force the masquerading family to take drastic action – your heart will be in your mouth before the final credits roll. – Emma Bullimore

I Care a Lot

Amazon

If you enjoyed Rosamund Pike’s blood-curdling turn in Gone Girl, you’ll love her performance in this fast-paced thriller, which earned the British actress a Golden Globe earlier this year. Pike plays ruthless Marla Grayson, a woman appointed by the courts to act as the legal guardian of elderly people who need assistance to take care of themselves. The problem is, the people she chooses are absolutely fine – the only thing they have to be scared of is Grayson, who steals their money, puts them in a home and exploits them for her own purposes. But one day she picks the wrong elderly woman.

Her son is a gangster (played by Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage) and he’ll do whatever it takes to make sure his mum is OK. Cue a cat and mouse game, where both players will stop at nothing to get what they want. Impossible to predict and dealing with unsettling subject matter, I Care A Lot is a film that will get your heart pumping and keep you guessing until the very end. Refreshingly original and brought to life by brilliant performances, it’s real gem that you should add to your ‘to watch’ list immediately. – Emma Bullimore

SEAC

Jordan Peele had already announced himself as a vital new directorial voice with his sublime debut Get Out, and he delivered another brilliant slice of social satire inflected horror with this hugely entertaining 2019 film.The film centres on a family who, while trying to enjoy a relaxing holiday, are suddenly faced with a terrifying and unusual threat: a gang of red jumpsuit wearing, scissor wielding doppelgangers who seem intent on murdering them at any cost. It soon transpires that they are not alone – everyone in the nearby vicinity is being similarly haunted by these figures, who announce themselves as The Tethered.

In the ensuing drama, there are some brilliant action sequences, perfect needle drops and some moments of wonderfully dark humour, not to mention a few twists and turns along the way. The performances are great all around, but it’s Lupita Nyong’o who steals the show with a breathtaking dual role – how she wasn’t at least Oscar nominated for this we’ll never know. – Patrick Cremona

Suicide Squad

SEAC

It may not have the highest reviews, but there’s something ultimately very fun and weirdly charming about David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. A group of criminal misfits are tasked with saving the world following the death of Superman. If they succeed, their prison sentences will be shortened, but if not, they will die. Their mission is to defeat Enchantress (played by Cara Delevingne), but it won’t be easy, as she’s a powerful witch with powers beyond belief. Culturally, Suicide Squad proved to be enormous as it introduced us to Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn whose beloved character launched a thousand Halloween costumes.

The film might not have the strongest plot and some criticism was levelled at the bafflingly short amount of time Jared Leto’s much-hyped Joker appeared in the film, but the cast are electric and the soundtrack is certainly very catchy. It is also the first film in the DCEU to ever win an Academy Award (Best Makeup and Hairstyling). Plus, it’s worth catching up on Suicide Squad before watching the beloved Harley spin-off Birds of Prey and upcoming sequel The Suicide Squad, due later this year. – Helen Daly

Molly’s Game

Based on an incredible true story, Molly’s Game is a 2017 film that sees Jessica Chastain in the role of Los Angeles poker queen Molly Bloom. A former skier who becomes the leader of a regular high-rolling poker game, Molly is an engaging and charismatic character who comes up against the dark underbelly of Hollywood. One of the most memorable characters is Michael Cera’s Player X, a badly behaved composite character that is based on several real-life movie stars who played in Molly’s game. Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Chris O’Dowd also appear, making this a highly star-studded affair.

With a typically tight script from Aaron Sorkin (who also makes his directorial debut behind the camera), Molly’s Game is a film that ticks along at pace and packs in a lot of tension. As well as offering a unique perspective on the lives of mega-star millionaires, Molly’s Game also veers into crime drama territory as the FBI become increasingly interested in Molly. Chastain earned a Golden Globe for her performance in the title role, which mixes charisma and chaos wonderfully well. Sorkin’s script was also much-touted on the awards circuit, picking up nominations at the Oscars, the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs. – Rob Leane

The Notebook

Arguably one of the most romantic love stories of all time, The Notebook is a film everyone truly must see. Based on a novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams play lovers Noah and Allie who are simply meant to be together, but the course of true love never did run smoothly. Although at the time of release the film garnered mixed reviews, The Notebook has gone on to achieve cult status, propelling Gosling and McAdams into the stars we know today.

The lead actors really do make the film. At times the story does hit highs and lows, but McAdams and Gosling always carry the script with delicacy. The ending will no doubt break your heart, making the whole film worth sticking with – just make sure you’re loaded up with tissues because we guarantee you’ll need them. – Helen Daly

Watch The Notebook on Amazon Prime Video

Joker

Warner Bros.

If you thought that Zack Snyder’s Justice League was dark, wait until you get a load of Joker. The film that won Joaquin Phoenix an Oscar in 2020 and received 11 other nominations from the Academy, Joker is pretty much as well-respected as a comic-book movie can get. Heavily inspired by Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy, Joker puts a serious spin on DC Comics’ Clown Prince of Crime, imagining Batman’s nemesis as a down-and-out comedian with mental health struggles who is trapped in an uncaring society.

Although it stands up remarkably well as a serious film in its own right, Joker is also an interesting proposition for superhero-loving moviegoers. With a young Bruce Wayne, his doom parents and Alfred the butler all making appearances, it almost feels like the prelude to a Batman film we’ll never get to see. Robert DeNiro, Zazie Beetz and Marc Maron round out the cast, with director Todd Phillips working from a screenplay by Scott Silver to deliver a comic-book movie like no other. And to be honest, we may never see its like again. It’s well worth checking out this film, if you haven’t already, just to see an altogether different take on the DC universe. – Rob Leane

Watch Joker on Amazon Prime Video

Kong: Skull Island

SEAC

Of all the instalments in Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse franchise, this is by far the most fun – an Apocalypse Now inspired adventure with a brilliant Vietnam War soundtrack and some wildly entertaining death scenes.

At the centre of the plot is Samuel L. Jackson as Packard, a US Army colonel just about to leave Vietnam, who is encouraged to go on one final mission: a top secret journey to the mysterious island which houses the famed giant primate. Naturally the local creatures aren’t the most welcoming to Packard and his crew, and they face a tough time before they even find Kong himself – resulting in an enjoyable thrilling, if not exactly envelope pushing, experience for viewers.

The film’s best moments come after the introduction of John C. Reilly as a seemingly crazed army veteran who has come to love Kong and his life on the island – lending the film a little more heart than your average monster flick. – Patrick Cremona

Watch Kong: Skull Island on Amazon Prime Video

Godzilla vs Kong

SEAC

After three earlier films in Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse franchise, two of cinema’s most iconic characters finally went up against each other in epic blockbuster, Godzilla vs Kong, released earlier in 2021, a film which very much lives up to its name.

The two titans share the screen with a range of human characters – played by some big names including Alexander Skarsgaard, Rebecca Hall and Millie Bobby Brown – but despite a number of storylines involving that star-studded cast, it’s ultimately the battle between the pair of gargantuan creatures that is easily the main event.

Even the most diehard Godzilla fan would be prepared to admit that the film is flawed, with some two-dimensional characters and questionable pacing, and yet it’s hard not to admire the spectacle on some level, as you’re sucked into the well-choreographed fights in all their bombastic glory. – Patrick Cremona

Watch Godzilla vs Kong on Amazon Prime Video

Back to the Future

SEAC

Join Marty and Doc on the adventure of a lifetime in Back to the Future on Amazon Prime. The Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale film brings time travel slap-bang into the 80s and is the epitome of that era. Teenager Marty (played by the charismatic Michael J. Fox) is too cool for school and plans to be a musician until his scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) shows him a whole new world, made possible by his trusted time-travelling DeLorean.

There truly isn’t a more charming movie to cheer you up on a dreary weekend. Marty and Doc are (quite literally) electric together and the humour is sweet. You’ll be singing Huey Lewis and the News tunes all day while dreaming of one day owning your own DeLorean. There’s a reason it’s a classic – it’s simply never aged. Yes it’s set in the 80s, but Back to the Future could be released today and it would still be as loved and would more importantly still be considered one of the greatest films ever made. – Helen Daly

Watch Back to the Future on Amazon Prime Video

The Truman Show

SEAC

Comedy superstar Jim Carrey proved himself as a gifted dramatic actor with this prophetic offering, which first hit cinemas in 1998, in which he stars as Truman Burbank – a man blissfully unaware his entire life is a fabrication created for a television show watched by the world. When strange things start happening in his quaint neighbourhood, it sparks a thirst for adventure that could be the key to shattering the illusion in which he has been trapped.

While The Truman Show certainly has some funny moments, particularly shared between Carrey and his cold on-screen wife played by Ozark’s Laura Linney, it’s the emotional moments that will likely stick with you longer. Truman becomes an increasingly tragic figure as his life starts to unravel and by the end of the film, you’ll be on the edge of your seat hoping he can free himself once and for all.

Raking in more than $250 million at the global box office, The Truman Show was a mammoth success and went on to score major nominations at the Academy Awards and the BAFTAs. The film was a favourite at the Golden Globes, where both Carrey and co-star Ed Harris won trophies for their performance, while the film also snagged the prize for Best Original Score with its atmospheric soundtrack. – David Craig Watch The Truman Show on Amazon Prime Video

Mean Girls

Paramount Pictures

A film that has generated no shortage of hilarious GIFs and quotes, Mean Girls is an all-time classic of the teen comedy genre. Written by American comedy star Tina Fey (30 Rock), it introduces us to Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan), a teenage girl experiencing high school for the first time after a childhood spent being tutored at home.

She quickly discovers a brutal hierarchy dominated by a group called The Plastics, led by the meanest girl of them all: Regina George (Rachel McAdams). An initial attempt to infiltrate and destroy these titans goes awry when Cady finds herself adopting their two-faced tactics as her popularity soars. In the process, she risks losing the people who truly cared about her.

The entire cast are at the top of their game with strong breakout performances from Lohan, McAdams, Lizzy Caplan and Academy Award nominee Amanda Seyfried. Meanwhile, Fey’s script is nothing short of hilarious, occasionally veering into the surrealism that was such a big part of 30 Rock. She returned to pen a stage musical based on the film, which went on to earn 12 nominations at 2018’s Tony Awards. – David Craig Watch Mean Girls on Amazon Prime Video

Raya and the Last Dragon

Disney/YouTube

The latest animation from Disney, Raya and the Last Dragon takes inspiration from the various countries and cultures of Southeast Asia, including Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Based in the fantasy world of Kumandra, it tells the tale of a young girl, the titular Raya, who is tasked with finding the kingdom’s last surviving dragon in a bid to stave off the sinister Druun – monsters who have returned to wreak havoc after an absence of 500 years.

When she finds the dragon, though, she is surprised to learn that rather than being the brave and fearless warrior she imagined, she is actually the wacky younger sister of the more heroic dragons of legend. What follows is an excellent adventure with all manner of entertaining side characters, voiced by an all star cast that includes Kelly Marie Tran, Awkwafina, Sandra Oh, Benedict Wong and Gemma Chan.

It’s worth watching for the beautiful animation alone, and the frequent action sequences are some of the best you’ll find in an animated movie, having been brought to life with the help of a number of martial arts experts. – Patrick Cremona

Watch Raya and the Last Dragon on Amazon Prime Video

Birds of Prey

With Margot Robbie’s charmingly unhinged performance as Harley Quinn being one of the only positives to come out of 2016’s Suicide Squad, it came as no surprise when Warner Bros gave the murderous Fleabag of DC superheroes her own film with Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).

Set four years after Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress was defeated, the Cathy Yan-directed blockbuster follows Harley Quinn as she processes her break-up from the unseen Joker and without his protection, finds herself in the crosshairs of sadistic Gotham mobster Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor).

After teaming up with alcoholic detective Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), super-powered vigilante Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), orphaned assassin The Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and pick-pocketing child Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), Harley Quinn fights back against the criminals she’s made enemies of and learns to put her trust in other people.

Featuring a stellar cast, high-stakes chases, huge explosions and captivating fight sequences, Birds of Prey is everything you want from a superhero film and more, with writer Christina Hodson putting a fun, tongue-in-cheek spin on the genre that perfectly epitomises the unpredictable antihero that is Harley Quinn. – Lauren Morris

Watch Birds of Prey on Amazon Prime Video

The Gentlemen

Miramax/YouTube

Superstar director Guy Ritchie went back to his roots for this gangster flick, which serves as a spiritual successor to the likes of Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The story revolves around Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey), a drug lord looking to get out of the business while keeping his opulent lifestyle intact.

That will be no easy task with enemies lurking around every corner, from rival gangs to sleazy private detectives, all looking to carve up a slice of Mickey’s empire for themselves. While the stakes are high throughout, the film sustains a relatively light tone overall with a witty and chaotic script featuring an abundance of larger-than-life characters.

Subscribers to Amazon Prime have access to thousands of movies for free with their subscriptions. If you’re looking for something to watch, here are the best movies to watch for free with Amazon Prime Video.

Update, 11/19/21: We’ve reviewed our recommendations and are confident these are still the best movies you can watch on Amazon Prime Video.

Knives Out

Filmmaker Rian Johnson puts together an all-star cast for the old-fashioned murder mystery Knives Out. A wealthy mystery novelist (played by Christopher Plummer) is killed under mysterious circumstances, and everyone in his family (plus his longtime caretaker) is a suspect.

Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, and Toni Collette are among the actors playing the family members, with Ana de Armas as the caretaker and Daniel Craig as renowned detective Benoit Blanc. In the tradition of Agatha Christie, Knives Out is full of surprises and reveals, plus an added layer of sharp social commentary and a wry sense of humor.

Heathers

Cult classic Heathers is one of the best comedies on Amazon Prime. This dark satire takes on the teen movies of its era (the 1980s), bringing a violent edge to the story of an upstanding young woman falling in love with a rebellious bad boy. Veronica (Winona Ryder) and J.D. (Christian Slater) take their crusade against the vapid popular students at their high school to deadly extremes, while the movie retains a sense of the absurd. The filmmakers mix whip-smart dialogue with cutting commentary on conformity.

Inception

Christopher Nolan’s obsession with intricate plotting meets the perfect high concept in Inception. This thriller involves a “heist” of ideas literally within the world of dreams as trained operatives infiltrate the subconscious mind of a corporate executive.

The twisty plot is matched by Nolan’s elaborate, mind-bending visuals, which he deploys in some truly astonishing action set pieces. Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, and Tom Hardy lead a strong cast who bring some emotional depth to Nolan’s heady concepts.

Watch on Amazon

His Girl Friday

Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell star as bickering newspaper reporters (and ex-spouses) in Howard Hawks’ classic comedy His Girl Friday. Hawks swaps the gender of one of the main characters of the popular play The Front Page, turning the story into a comedy about remarriage as well as a farce. The rapid-fire dialogue is filled with clever put-downs and wordplay, and Grant and Russell continually one-up each other as their characters pursue the biggest story of their careers (and also fall in love again).

Watch on Amazon

Inside Llewyn Davis

One of the Coen brothers’ best films, Inside Llewyn Davis, stars Oscar Isaac as the title character, a struggling folk singer in 1960s New York City. Perpetually living in the shadow of his more successful peers, Llewyn drifts from one friend’s couch to another’s, trying to scrounge together money from occasional gigs. The movie has a bittersweet, melancholy tone, with Llewyn serving as a stand-in for anyone who’s faced the prospect of giving up on their dreams.

Watch on Amazon

Love & Friendship

One of Amazon’s best original movies, Love & Friendship is a delightful Jane Austen adaptation from filmmaker Whit Stillman. Based on Austen’s early novel Lady Susan, the movie stars Kate Beckinsale as a ruthless, sharp-tongued social climber with witty rejoinders for everyone she meets. Love & Friendship adds a nasty edge to Austen’s typical romantic narrative while still satisfyingly pairing off all the main characters in suitable marriages.

Midsommar

Ari Aster’s Midsommar delivers unspeakable horrors in broad daylight as its main characters visit a remote Swedish village during a traditional summer festival. There’s far more going on than dancing and creating flower crowns, though, as these American grad students learn the hard way. Florence Pugh plays a young woman in the midst of grieving who discovers a well of internal strength as she participates in the village’s arcane rituals. In horror, she finds her identity and her power.

To Catch a Thief

Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief is more lighthearted than many of the master of suspense’s thrillers, but it’s no less engrossing. Cary Grant plays an expert jewel thief whose retirement is threatened by an impostor robbing wealthy tourists on the French Riviera.

Determined to clear his name, the burglar, known as “the Cat,” decides to catch the real thief. Along the way, he falls in love with a wealthy heiress played by Grace Kelly. It’s a stylish caper that benefits from the stars’ playful chemistry and Hitchcock’s mastery of the camera.

Night of the Living Dead

The zombie genre wouldn’t even exist without George A. Romero’s landmark 1968 horror movie Night of the Living Dead. Romero pioneered most of the key elements of zombie movies with his creepy, low-budget film about the dead rising from the grave, hungry for human flesh.

Taking place mostly within an abandoned house where characters hide from the growing undead hordes, Night of the Living Dead creates indelible scares on minimal resources. It’s one of the most influential movies of all time (in any genre).

Must-Watch Amazon Prime Movies Coming In 2021 And Beyond

By Ryan Ariano/April 12, 2021 8:45 pm EST/Updated: April 12, 2021 8:45 pm EST

Founded in 2010, Amazon Studios has long been at the forefront of the streaming revolution. Originally an added benefit for subscribers to Amazon Prime, the studio's projects have become synonymous with the subscription service.

By combining the development of original series and films as well as acquiring other projects, Amazon has built up a huge in-house roster of programming available to Prime subscribers. Amazon Studios even made history by being the first streaming service to win Academy Awards, for Manchester by the Sea and The Salesman.

Now Amazon is a studio powerhouse, producing and distributing some of the most anticipated upcoming series and movies to grace screens small and big. Already in 2021, Amazon's Coming 2 America made a huge splash as the much-needed sequel to a classic comedy, while the next few films set to arrive in 2021 from Amazon Studios may well capture the same lightning with audiences. The films being developed and produced by the studio for late 2021 and beyond prove that the streamer will be knocking out hits for months and years to come.

Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

Michael B. Jordan got his start as the unforgettable Wallace in The Wire but it was his turn in Fruitvale Station that made him into a bankable lead. His Killmonger arguably steals the show in Black Panther, and Creed was one of the best reboots of a 40-year-old franchise. So no doubt the world is excited for his new movie releasing April 30, Tom Clancy's Without Remorse. But the action-packed special forces thriller about a Navy S.E.A.L. taking vengeance for the murder of his wife has even more reasons to watch.

The screenplay was written by Will Staples (The Right Stuff TV series) and Taylor Sheridan (writer of films like Hell or High Water, Wind River and Sicario, as well as showrunner for Yellowstone). It's directed by Stefano Sollima, whose series Gomorrah is a continuation of the eponymous gritty modern-day Italian gangster film. The cast is rounded out by Jamie Bell, Guy Pearce, Colman Domingo (remember Victor from The Walking Dead?), Brett Gelman and many others.

Plus it's based on a Tom Clancy novel. While the film was originally produced by Paramount Pictures, Amazon acquired the rights as a result of theaters being shut down by COVID-19. Get ready for some deep conspiracy, lots of bullets, and Michael B. at his finest.

Run Sweetheart Run

Run Sweetheart Run first debuted at the 2020 Sundance Festival. The producers planned to next take it to South by Southwest and then into a full theatrical release. When the latter was curbed by the global COVID-19 pandemic, producers Blumhouse and Automatik sold distribution rights to Amazon.

A horror movie written and directed by Shana Feste, the story is relatable in an age of people increasingly going on dates without meeting the other person first. A hard-working single mom gets her dating life back on track with a blind date set up by her boss. But when she realizes her date is far more sinister than she could have imagined, she has to escape through the streets of L.A., which the creep she's dated seems to be in charge of. It's a premise almost guaranteed to keep you white-knuckled to the end.

The lead is played by 2019 Charlie's Angels star Ella Balinska. Pilou Asbeck, who you might recognize as Euron Greyjoy from Game of Thrones, plays the date. Then there's Clark Gregg, best known as Agent Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Aml Ameen from Maze Runner and Oladayo Okeniyi (Thresh from Hunger Games). Plus it's the only stand-alone Blumhouse movie on the 2021 Amazon slate, featuring a beautiful woman literally running from the date from hell.

The Boy from Medellin

It's one thing to be woke; it's another thing to have it forced on you. International reggaeton star J. Balvin is Colombian, and in 2019, Colombia was engulfed with protests against right-wing leader Ivan Duque. This was a nation still reeling from Pablo Escobar, the Cali cartel, and the FARCs. In Colombia, politics, fighting and rebellion are about more than disagreements; they're ingrained in the national consciousness and have often had seriously fatal consequences.

The Boy from Medellin documents J. Balvin heading home for what should have been his coming home party, a big stadium show. He had a documentary crew for the week leading up to it more as a way to chronicle a boy-done-good story. But then the story takes an unforeseen pivot.

As the protests get real and eventually lead to the cancellation of other shows, the apolitical J. Balvin is faced with the reality that he's going to have to choose sides, even if he didn't really want to. It's kismet when a documentary inadvertently chronicles the struggles of an artist as his people force him to embrace an agenda he may or may not totally agree with.

Amazon picked up the doc in August 2020, just ahead of its premiere at the digital Toronto Film Festival.

Le Bal des Folles

In late 19th century Paris, women deemed too far outside social norms and mores were institutionalized. A leading team of neurologists sought to cure these women of hysteria at the Salpetriere hospital. In the award-winning novel upon which this movie is based, Le Bal de Folles – translated as The Mad Women's Ball – we follow these women in the asylum. Apparently the Salpetriere had an annual ball organized with the patients that attracted the who's-who of Parisian society. The movie follows the patients through this whole experience, including the protagonist, who's seeking to prove she was unfairly deemed insane.

Melanie Laurent, memorable as the femme fatale who killed all the Nazis in Inglourious Basterds, wrote, directed, and stars in this adaptation of the novel. In a time where women are calling more and more attention to how their freedoms have been infringed upon and are still being attacked, this film couldn't be more important — especially as it follows the Laurent character's journey through darkness and her drive to find her own freedom.

The movie is currently listed as being in post-production, with Amazon Prime as the distributor.

Welcome to The Blumhouse anthology

Blumhouse and Amazon Studios created a series last year called Welcome to the Blumhouse that brought four amazing thriller/horror flicks to the Amazon fold, with the next round dropping in 2021.

There's The Manor, in which a woman (Barbara Hershey) who recently suffered a stroke moves into a nursing home that she thinks is haunted by an evil force. She has to get out, but first she has to recover to the point that she can survive on her own.

In Black as Night, a teenage girl (Abbie Gayle) builds her self-esteem by hunting vampires in New Orleans and is joined by her friends in the effort.

In Madres, a Mexican-American couple move to a California farm town expecting the birth of their first child. But soon horrific complications and visions begin to frighten them. As these escalate, the couple begins to question whether they're due to a curse or something more evil. 

Bingo centers on a tight-knit group of seniors, led by Adriana Barraza, who refuse to change. They're strong enough to fight anybody threatening their retired bliss. But then their bingo hall is sold to a force that may be fueled by more than money.

Annette

Adam Driver is on fire these days. Marion Cotillard has been blowing doors off since she won an Oscar for her turn as Edith Piaf in 2007's La Vie en Rose. And to see the English language debut of Leos Carax, a French director with a deep love of La Nouvelle Vague, is always fun. These factors alone make Annette, starring Cotillard and Driver and directed by Carax, a film not to miss.

The movie was acquired by Amazon Prime in 2017 and has been in the pipeline for a while, but it is officially completed. 

Annette is a musical where almost every line is sung, with the songs written by the band Sparks. The plot is centered on a stand-up comedian (Driver) and his famous opera soprano wife (Cotillard) who are living a high-flying life of luxury and beauty.

Then their daughter's born, which puts a big damper on their life in the rarefied air enjoyed by acclaimed artists. When their daughter turns out to have a unique gift, things take a big turn guaranteed to make everything different. Annette promises to be a great film, especially if you're at least somewhat a fan of musicals.

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain

Biopics about artists are always great — especially one about a 19th century artist known for surreal cat paintings, as is the protagonist of The Electrical Life of Louis Wain. Will Sharpe directs from his own script (co-credited with Simon Stephenson), which in 2014 made the Brit List of hottest unproduced UK screenplays. But on top of the script and the director, this film delivers a dynamite British cast. While StudioCanal has European rights, Amazon Studios oversees the US release.

Benedict Cumberbatch plays Wain, the eccentric man whose cat paintings presaged our obsession with crazy cat videos, anthropomorphized animals, and psychedelic colors. Wain became schizophrenic, possibly due to toxoplasmosis from cat feces. Claire Foy (The Crown) plays his wife Emily, who meets a tragic fate. The extremely accomplished Toby Jones (who played another iconic British artist, JMW Turner, in the play The Painter) also appears, as does Jamie Demetriou (the guy with the big teeth in Fleabag) and many more British dynamos.

The movie potentially promises to be a tour de force about brilliance, madness, love, and loss, as well as everything in between — and, of course, cats. Definitely can't forget the cats.

Voyeurs

Jerod Harris/Getty Images

Voyeurs speaks to a world where people are constantly looking out their windows to feel a connection with somebody else, if only by watching them live their lives. Justice Smith, the star of Detective Pikachu (as well as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and the colorful hip hop series The Get Down) plays Thomas, who moves with Pippa (Euphoria's Sydney Sweeney) into their dream apartment. Everything is perfect for these beautiful young lovers — at first, anyway.

Then they notice their windows look directly into the apartment across the way, where an attractive couple is living what seems to be a dramatic life they can't look away from — a relationship full of passion, both good and bad.

But as the relationship of the couple across the street grows increasingly volatile, Pippa and Thomas decide they have to do something. They try to intervene, anonymously of course. But unfortunately, no good deed goes unpunished and things quickly start to go very wrong. Written and directed by Michael Mohan, this may be the kind of thriller you can't take your eyes off.

The Burial

Amy Sussman/Getty Images

In November 2020, Jamie Foxx joined The Burial as producer and star. The project is still in development but given the talent involved, it has a great likelihood of going forward and being out within the next year. Maggie Betts is directing; her last film, Novitiate, won the Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Director at Sundance in 2017. The script is written by Pulitzer winner Doug Wright, based on a New Yorker article by Jonathan Harr. Put the parts together and The Burial has the potential of being an entertaining story about funeral homes and legal battles.

The story alone is amazing and weird: a bankrupt funeral home owner hires a flamboyant attorney to sue a rival over an agreement gone wrong. This could be fun, in a wacky and morbid way. One can only hope for a Six Feet Under meets Better Call Saul vibe, but given how secretive the process has been and how few details have been confirmed — plus the fact that it's listed as "In development" on IMDB – it could go a lot of different directions, any of which will undoubtedly be worth a watch.

Invasion

Getty Images/Getty Images

In post-production now, Invasion is about a father who goes on the run with his sons in an attempt to protect them from a threatening alien invasion. Along the way, they all have to fight for their lives, growing and discovering their own strengths in the process. Riz Ahmed (Rogue One) leads a cast including Rory Cochrane (who's come a long way since playing Slater in Dazed and Confused), and Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer, who is worth watching on a cereal commercial much less a high-profile Amazon family pursuit film involving aliens. The movie is directed by Michael Pearce, the up-and-coming British director of Beast.

The story promises to be frightening, or at least tense and thrilling. It was written by Pearce and Joe Barton, who wrote the amazing chase horror film The Ritual. If it's anything like that one, Invasion will have audiences locked in until the credits roll. Since it's in post-production, there's even a chance it will drop in late 2021.

All the Old Knives

Albert L. Ortega/Getty Images

At first glance, All the Old Knives seems like it could have a romantic air to it. Chris Pine and Thandie Newton play CIA operatives and former lovers who reunite at Carmel-by-the-Sea. Their conversation moves into the hijacking of Royal Jordanian 127, which led to the death of all onboard and is still a disgrace for the CIA even years later. As the flirtatious dinner goes on and the talk gets more real, it's soon revealed that this failed mission may have compromised a CIA agent. Eventually it becomes clear that one of them may not survive to the end of the meal.

Based on Olen Steinhauer's eponymous New York Times best selling novel, All the Old Knives features a cast that is fireworks. Let's not forget that another Steinhauer spy novel, 2009's The Tourist, was adapted into the 2010 film starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, although there may be some out there who want to forget it.

Still, the cast includes Pine and Newton, along with Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Two Popes) and Laurence Fishburne, who joined in November. Top it off with director Janus Metz, who directed the well-received Borg vs. McEnroe and Amazon's ZeroZeroZero, and we've got a can't-miss spy thriller.

Fred and Ginger

As the saying about Fred Astaire goes, "Sure he was great, but don't forget that Ginger Rogers did everything he did, backwards... and in high heels." The biopic Fred and Ginger dives into the lives of arguably the most famous dancing duo in American cinema, from their magnetic careers to exploring their little-known off-screen romance.

For a long time, Astaire got the bulk of credit as America's great screen dance impresario. But his greatest footwork was with Ginger Rogers, to the point that their names are rarely mentioned separately. Their on-screen chemistry was indelible and Fred and Ginger aims to explore why.

Jamie Bell, who began his career as the dancing protagonist of Billy Elliot, will play Fred. Margaret Qualley, perhaps best known as Pussycat, the hitchhiker who brings Cliff to the ranch in Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, will play Ginger. Qualley also practiced ballet for most of her young life, making it at 16 to the American Ballet Theatre's summer program. Though she quit ballet, she received an Emmy nod for her turn as Broadway star Ann Reinking in FX's Fosse/Verdon.

This project was only announced in December 2020 and is currently listed as "in development." 

Being the Ricardos

Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball. Javier Bardem as Desi Arnaz. Directed by Aaron Sorkin. This is Being the Ricardos. Seriously, what else do you need to know? 

The script is a compelling slice-of-life story that takes place over a one-week period during the filming of I Love Lucy. It starts with a table read of a script and ends in the production of the episode. During that week, Lucy and Desi hit some serious snags that may jeopardize their marriage, which would have a huge impact both on and off-screen. This might easily become one of the most anticipated films of 2022.

Sorkin, who's nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay with The Trial of the Chicago 7, wrote Being the Ricardos in addition to directing it. Joining Kidman and Bardem in the cast are J.K. Simmons as William Frawley, the actor who played Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy, Nina Arianda as Vivian Vance, who played Frawley's on-screen wife Ethel, Tony Hale as I Love Lucy showrunner Jess Oppenheimer and Alia Shawkat as writer Madelyn Pugh.

I Want You Back

When you get dumped from your happily-ever-after, the only solution is to find somebody else in the same boat and go from commiserating to hatching an insane plan to get your respective exes to leave their new partners and get back with you. That's a totally logical approach to the situation.

That's also the plot of I Want You Back, and this premise had all the makings of comedy gold. Especially with funny queen Jenny Slate and the inimitable Charlie Day playing the jilted, scheming lovers looking for redemption. There's also Scott Eastwood, Jami Gertz, Manny Jacinto, and Gina Rodriguez rounding out the cast, according to IMDB.

Director Jason Orley helmed two Pete Davidson works recently, both his film Big Time Adolescence and his stand-up special Alive from New York, so he obviously knows something about comedy. But most importantly, while the cast was announced in February 2021, the film has already been listed as filming on IMDB. Which means that there's a good chance we'll be seeing if Slate and Day reunite with their unrequited loves before 2021 is over (or early 2022 at the latest).

The sooner the better — given the challenges of the last year, everybody could use a good laugh.

Master

Arturo Holmes/Getty Images

Ghosts. College drama. A strong black female team from writer/director Mariama Diallo to producer and actress Regina Hall to leads Zoe Renee and Amber Gray...Master has so many things to look forward to.

First the plot: Two black women make their way onto the hallowed grounds of elite New England university Ancaster, guided by the black queer head of Belleville house. But there's a twist: this particular university was built on a former Salem witch hunt gallows hill and all sorts of supernatural stuff starts happening. So we have women of color navigating a world of privilege against the background of occult frights rising through the prestigious school grounds.

"From the moment we read Master and met Mariama we knew we needed to be part of bringing this spine-chilling story to life," said Amazon Studios Co-Head of Movies Julie Rapaport in the 2020 announcement of the addition of Renee and Gray.

Hall joined as producer back in 2019. She plays the queer black head of house who has to help Renee and Gray navigate racial tensions, stuffy prestigious halls, and occult threats. It may seem that as the first big talent attached, and playing a mentor or hero figure, Hall is in fact the real master of the project.

Amazon films you might have missed in 2021

There's a lot to look forward to for the rest of 2021 and just beyond. But Amazon Prime has already dropped several great films in 2021 that you should check out in the meantime.

Let's start with a movie that probably nobody missed but just in case: why haven't you watched Coming 2 America yet? The sequel to one of the most iconic movies of the 1980s brings back Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley and Louie Anderson while adding Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, and Tracy Morgan.

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things is a teen redux of the time loop Groundhog Day concept, written by Lev Grossman and starring up-and-comers Kathryn Newton, Kyle Allen and Jermaine Harris. Allen and Harris play two teens who relive the same day, eventually leading them to create the map from which comes the title. It's that charming teen date movie even grown-ups will (maybe secretly) enjoy.

Then there's Bliss, starring Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek. Greg, played by Wilson, is a double loser, having recently gotten fired and divorced. Then he meets Isabel, played by Hayek, a street woman who believes that their messed-up world is a computer simulation. And Greg may be starting to buy in as well.

While you're waiting for the upcoming films on this list, check these three out. And if you've already seen them, might as well watch again.

The 10 best movies on Amazon Prime in December 2021

The Royal Tenenbaums; Jennifer’s Body; Little Women

December naturally brings with it a flurry of holiday content, but there comes a point where a person can’t take a single additional iota of seasonal spirit. Here’s where Prime Video’s deep movie catalog comes in handy, offering up counter-programming directed by some of the biggest names in Hollywood and featuring iconic “it” girls like Gwyneth Paltrow, Winona Ryder, and Megan Fox. Throw in a new Benedict Cumberbatch vehicle, a sci-fi spoof, a Sundance award winner, an under-appreciated ’80s horror sequel, and a classic Robert De Niro performance, and you’ve got our list of the 10 best movies on Prime Video in December.

2 / 12

Edward Scissorhands

Edward Scissorhands (available 12/1)

[Director Tim] Burton succeeded in creating a humanoid hero who was definitely different looking—one that you couldn’t help staring at, but if he were a real person, staring definitely would have been rude. But that’s not what made Edward Scissorhands so unique—this movie’s biggest contribution to monster movies is what doesn’t happen when this weird character goes to live among regular people. [Bryan Lufkin]

Galaxy Quest

Galaxy Quest (available 12/1)

An inspired spoof of and tribute to Star Trek, Galaxy Quest stars Tim Allen as the one-time star of the long-canceled, cultishly adored science-fiction show of the title, the captain of a fictional starship whose crew now finds its steadiest employment signing autographs at conventions and opening discount electronics stores ... Director Dean Parisot (Home Fries) makes the most of Robert Gordon and David Howard’s Three Amigos-in-space screenplay, never letting the impressive special effects get in the way of a solid comedy that would have worked at half the budget. But the cast is what makes Galaxy Quest work. Allen suggests the two-dimensional actor who starred on Home Improvement more than the two-dimensional actor who played Captain Kirk, but the rest turn in deft comic performances. These include Sigourney Weaver as the series’ token woman, Daryl Mitchell as its aging wunderkind navigator, Sam Rockwell as a minor player (who died in episode 82) swept along for the ride, and the especially good Alan Rickman and Tony Shalhoub, respectively playing a sardonic British actor tired of being typecast in his Spock-like role and the ship’s sleepy-eyed tech sergeant. It’s a funny, fitting homage to Star Trek and its followers that’s more entertaining than its inspiration has been in some time. [Keith Phipps]

Halloween III: Season Of The Witch

Halloween III: Season Of The Witch

Halloween III: Season Of The Witch (available 12/1)

Imagine the confusion and anger fans must have felt when they sat down for another Myers/Strode title fight and were instead treated to the unrelated, somewhat muddled tale of a mask manufacturer attempting to sacrifice the nation’s children to ancient druid gods. (Or something.) Essentially a riff on Invasion Of The Body Snatchers—much of the action takes place in Santa Mira, the fictional town the pod people invaded in that 1956 classic—Halloween III was Carpenter’s attempt to reclaim his franchise, attaching the Halloween brand to what he hoped would be a series of stand-alone stories. Had the strategy worked, part four would have supposedly been a ghost story, but both critics and audiences reacted venomously to this strange blend of horror and science fiction.

Cursed with bad acting and some rather momentous plot holes, Season Of The Witch is nevertheless a fascinating oddity—and for this writer, the most interesting of the Halloween sequels. [A.A. Dowd]

Read the rest of our 2013 rundown of the Halloween series here

Jennifer’s Body

Jennifer’s Body (available 12/1)

Cody’s actual horror comedy, stylishly directed by Karyn Kusama, stars Megan Fox as a teenage girl who becomes a literal boy-eater after she’s possessed by a demon. Fox drew additional attention to the project, through both the movie’s misguided, sex-heavy marketing campaign and a truly Herculean feat of misogyny that somehow allowed the female lead of two Transformersmovies to bear the brunt of disdain for Michael Bay’s dumb toy/military commercials ... Although Jennifer’s Body has the bones of a slasher movie, its horror is more psychologically acute than jump-scare tense. Needy and Jennifer feel like real people even when they’re heightened.

Some of the heightening comes from Kusama’s direction, with its split-diopter shots and gothic-tinged finale. But Cody’s writing is front and center—and a feature, not a bug ... Back in 2009, the movie’s mordant wit was received as Cody stubbornly refusing all of that generous advice that she modulate her voice to some imagined standard of tastefulness. Now it feels more like a justified show of confidence. [Jesse Hassenger]

Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine (available 12/1)

Movie titles are inherently designed as come-ons, but some function more as warning signs. The title of Little Miss Sunshine, like that of 1998's Happiness, serves as a giant flashing sign reading “Danger: Leaden Irony Ahead.” The film’s premise similarly primes audiences for a shrill, misanthropic parade of All-American grotesques. Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris’ Sundance sensation stars Greg Kinnear as a deluded third-rate motivational speaker; Alan Arkin as a heroin-sniffing, porn-obsessed, endlessly profane grandpa; Paul Dano as a Nietzsche-fixated teenager pursuing muteness as an eccentric lifestyle choice; and Steve Carell as a suicidal gay academic. Yet the film accomplishes a remarkable feat of creative alchemy by breathing life and depth into characters that, in lesser hands, could easily have come across as grating caricatures. It helps to have a cast stocked with ringers with the chops to play comedy as drama and drama as comedy. [Nathan Rabin]

Little Women (1994)

Little Women (1994) (available 12/1)

Greta Gerwig’s glorious new adaptation both is and isn’t your grandmother’s Little Women. In many ways it’s an even more faithful take on Louisa May Alcott’s original novel than the beloved 1994 Gillian Armstrong version, which downplayed the other March sisters to focus first and foremost on Winona Ryder’s Jo. [Caroline Seide]

Ronin

Ronin (available 12/1)

Whether it’s laying out its ambush-and-heist schemes or racing through French city streets at breakneck speeds, Ronin expects viewers to keep up. John Frankenheimer’s film makes the groan-worthy mistake of explaining the significance of its title twice—first in a textual introduction, and later via an expository conversation between two characters. Yet in all other respects, the movie is a work of no-nonsense proficiency, moving at a fleet pace that allows the audience to revel in the sights and sounds of freelance ex-military professionals and criminals adeptly concocting and executing elaborate smash-and-grab plans. [Nick Schager]

The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain

The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain

The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain (available 12/5)

Audiences unfamiliar with Louis Wain could be forgiven for assuming that a biopic about his “electrical life,” unfolding in the late 19th and early 20th century, might look something like The Current War, especially since both films star Benedict Cumberbatch. Although Wain did have some scientific interests, and even briefly fancied himself an amateur inventor, he’s remembered mainly for his many whimsical paintings and drawings of cats, which grew increasingly ornate (sometimes verging on psychedelic) over the years. He was also a notable eccentric who may or may not have had schizophrenia (people still argue over ostensible evidence in his work, à la Van Gogh) and Electrical Life, for a while, seems admirably determined to focus on peculiarities rather than serve up the usual Wiki-style checklist. [Mike D’Angelo]

The Thin Red Line

The Thin Red Line (available 12/1)

It’s easy, almost inevitable, to see the brutality of war as proof of the absence of God. It takes a peculiar, and peculiarly strong, sort of faith to see things the opposite way. “This great evil, where does it come from? How did it steal into the world?” one character wonders in Terrence Malick’s 1998 film The Thin Red Line, to the accompaniment of some brutal imagery. He may not be thinking big enough. Malick mixes the grim war story of James Jones’ experienced-based World War II novel about the invasion of Guadalcanal with the voiceovers and nature images that have become his directorial signature. As the film progresses, his characters’ thoughts draw toward the conclusion that all living things participate in a cosmic consciousness defined by struggle. It’s a radical, pantheistic vision of the world that might seem pretentious and New Age-y, but the story around it makes the observations seem hard-won, and the sweep and beauty of the film makes them ring true.

The Royal Tenenbaums

The Royal Tenenbaums (available 12/1)

Cases for other movies as Anderson’s best can certainly be made (just as they can be made for other Tarantino pictures), but with 20 years of hindsight, [The Royal Tenenbaums] feels like the Anderson urtext. It takes place in a wistful alternate reality with some resemblance to our own; features loads of memorably costumed characters with the immediate iconography of a great comic strip; is soundtracked by an eclectic mix tape that includes the Ramones, Elliott Smith, and a song from A Charlie Brown Christmas; and chases big laughs (really big laughs—it nearly topped our list of the best comedies since the year 2000) with genuine heartbreak.

Anchored by a performance that feels like Gene Hackman’s swan song even though he made a couple more movies afterward, The Royal Tenenbaums recognizes an essential truth amidst its stylizations: that who we are as adolescents can come to define us as adults, for better or worse. For all his supposed nostalgia, Anderson doesn’t indulge it shamelessly. He gives us characters who struggle with how to stay true to themselves while moving forward, iconic outfits or or childhood crushes in tow. Richie Tenenbaum may have failed to develop as a painter, but Anderson has a gift for revisiting his favorite flourishes and finding new notes within them. [Jesse Hassenger]

Filmmaker Rian Johnson puts together an all-star cast for the old-fashioned murder mystery Knives Out. A wealthy mystery novelist (played by Christopher Plummer) is killed under mysterious circumstances, and everyone in his family (plus his longtime caretaker) is a suspect.

In the tradition of Agatha Christie, Knives Out is full of surprises and reveals, plus an added layer of sharp social commentary and a wry sense of humor.

Heathers

Cult classic Heathers is one of the best comedies on Amazon Prime.

Veronica (Winona Ryder) and J.D. (Christian Slater) take their crusade against the vapid popular students at their high school to deadly extremes, while the movie retains a sense of the absurd. The filmmakers mix whip-smart dialogue with cutting commentary on conformity.

Inception

Christopher Nolan’s obsession with intricate plotting meets the perfect high concept in Inception. This thriller involves a “heist” of ideas literally within the world of dreams as trained operatives infiltrate the subconscious mind of a corporate executive.

The twisty plot is matched by Nolan’s elaborate, mind-bending visuals, which he deploys in some truly astonishing action set pieces. Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, and Tom Hardy lead a strong cast who bring some emotional depth to Nolan’s heady concepts.

His Girl Friday

Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell star as bickering newspaper reporters (and ex-spouses) in Howard Hawks’ classic comedy His Girl Friday. Hawks swaps the gender of one of the main characters of the popular play The Front Page, turning the story into a comedy about remarriage as well as a farce. The rapid-fire dialogue is filled with clever put-downs and wordplay, and Grant and Russell continually one-up each other as their characters pursue the biggest story of their careers (and also fall in love again).

Watch on Amazon

Love & Friendship

Love & Friendship adds a nasty edge to Austen’s typical romantic narrative while still satisfyingly pairing off all the main characters in suitable marriages.

Midsommar

Ari Aster’s Midsommar delivers unspeakable horrors in broad daylight as its main characters visit a remote Swedish village during a traditional summer festival.

To Catch a Thief

Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief is more lighthearted than many of the master of suspense’s thrillers, but it’s no less engrossing. Cary Grant plays an expert jewel thief whose retirement is threatened by an impostor robbing wealthy tourists on the French Riviera.

Determined to clear his name, the burglar, known as “the Cat,” decides to catch the real thief. Along the way, he falls in love with a wealthy heiress played by Grace Kelly. It’s a stylish caper that benefits from the stars’ playful chemistry and Hitchcock’s mastery of the camera.

Night of the Living Dead

The zombie genre wouldn’t even exist without George A. Romero’s landmark 1968 horror movie Night of the Living Dead. Romero pioneered most of the key elements of zombie movies with his creepy, low-budget film about the dead rising from the grave, hungry for human flesh.

Taking place mostly within an abandoned house where characters hide from the growing undead hordes, Night of the Living Dead creates indelible scares on minimal resources. It’s one of the most influential movies of all time (in any genre).

While Netflix draws so much awards attention each year because of its robust slate of movies from top-tier directors, it was Amazon Prime Video that actually became the first streaming platform to ever win an Oscar for a narrative feature. Back at the 2017 ceremony, Amazon won three Academy Awards — two for “Manchester by the Sea” (Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay) and one for the international feature “The Salesman.” (Netflix won its first Oscar that year for the documentary short “White Helmets.”)

Netflix has dominated the conversation in the years since — last year, the service received 24 Oscar nominations, the most for any studio — but Amazon is back again this season with a major Best Picture contender in “One Night in Miami” and several other potential nominees.

Ahead, the new movies on Amazon Prime Video in January that are serious awards contenders.

January 2021

“One Night In Miami” (January 15)

The feature directorial debut from Oscar-winning actress Regina King, “One Night in Miami” is the fictional account of a real-life evening in February 1964 when Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.), Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge), and Cassius Clay (Eli Goree) celebrated Clay’s heavyweight championship victory. Over the course of the evening, the four icons of the civil rights movement discuss the Black experience in America and their role in affecting progressive change. “One Night In Miami” is expected to compete in a number of major Oscars categories, including Best Picture, Best Director for King, and Best Supporting Actor for Odom. 

2020

“I’m Your Woman” (December 11)

Emmy-winning actress Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) continues her successful run at Amazon Prime Video with “I’m Your Woman,” a throwback drama from co-writer and director Julia Hart. The film, a period piece set in the 1970s, stars Brosnahan as a woman on the run and has generated awards buzz for its costumes and production design.

“Sound of Metal” (December 4)

Riz Ahmed plays a heavy metal drummer who begins to lose his hearing in this Darius Marder drama that has Ahmed and co-star Paul Raci in the thick of the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor races, respectively.

“Small Axe” (November 20)

Oscar-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen’s five-film guaranty bank and trust 24 hour number is not eligible at the 2021 Oscars, but the collection of features — from the critically acclaimed “Lovers Rock” to the courtroom drama “Mangrove” — is expected to compete at the Golden Globes and Emmy Awards in major categories thanks to its top-flight production pedigree.

“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” (October 23)

Fourteen years after satirizing America during the George W. Bush presidency, Sacha Baron Cohen returned to his most recognizable character for “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.” The sequel, which was shot in secret and only officially announced shortly before its Amazon debut, once again captured the zeitgeist and launched the career of actress Maria Bakalova. The newcomer, who plays Cohen’s on-screen daughter in the “Borat” sequel, is a heavy favorite to land a Best Supporting Actress nomination.

“Time” (October 16)

Directed by Garrett Bradley, the critically acclaimed documentary “Time” has generated significant awards heat since its debut at the Sundance Film Festival last year and could potentially make history for Bradley were it to win at the 2021 Oscars.

“All In: The Fight for Democracy” (September 9)

Co-directed by two-time Oscar nominee Liz Garbus (“What Happened, Miss Simone?,” “The Farm: Angola USA”) and Lisa Cortes, “All In” explores the deep history of voter suppression in America and prominently features an interview with Georgia political activist and progressive leader Stacey Abrams.

Must-Watch Amazon Prime Movies Coming In 2021 And Beyond

By Ryan Ariano/April 12, 2021 8:45 pm EST/Updated: April 12, 2021 8:45 pm EST

Founded in 2010, Amazon Studios has long been at the forefront of the streaming revolution. Originally an added benefit for subscribers to Amazon Prime, the studio's projects have become synonymous with the subscription service.

By combining the development of original series and films as well as acquiring other projects, Amazon has built up a huge in-house roster of programming available to Prime subscribers. Amazon Studios even made history by being the first streaming service to win Academy Awards, for Manchester by the Sea and The Salesman.

Now Amazon is a studio powerhouse, producing and distributing some of the most anticipated upcoming series and movies to grace screens small and big. Already in 2021, Amazon's Coming 2 America made a huge splash as the much-needed sequel to a classic comedy, while the next few films set to arrive in 2021 from Amazon Studios may well capture the same lightning with audiences. The films being developed and produced by the studio for late 2021 and beyond prove that the streamer will be knocking out hits for months and years to come.

Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

Michael B. Jordan got his start as the unforgettable Wallace in The Wire but it was his turn in Fruitvale Station that made him into a bankable lead. His Killmonger arguably steals the show in Black Panther, and Creed was one of the best reboots of a 40-year-old franchise. So no doubt the world is excited for his new movie releasing April 30, Tom Clancy's Without Remorse. But the action-packed special forces thriller about a Navy S.E.A.L. taking vengeance for the murder of his wife has even more reasons to watch.

The screenplay was written by Will Staples (The Right Stuff TV series) and Taylor Sheridan (writer of films like Hell or High Water, Wind River and Sicario, as well as showrunner for Yellowstone). It's directed by Stefano Sollima, whose series Gomorrah is new movies on amazon continuation of the eponymous gritty modern-day Italian gangster film. The cast is rounded out by Jamie Bell, Guy Pearce, Colman Domingo (remember Victor from The Walking Dead?), Brett Gelman and many others.

Plus it's based on a Tom Clancy novel. While the film was originally produced by Paramount Pictures, Amazon acquired the rights as a result of theaters being shut down by COVID-19. Get ready for some deep conspiracy, lots of bullets, and Michael B. at his finest.

Run Sweetheart Run

Run Sweetheart Run first debuted at the 2020 Sundance Festival. The producers planned to next take it to South by Southwest and then into a full theatrical release. When the latter was curbed by the global COVID-19 pandemic, producers Blumhouse and Automatik sold distribution rights to Amazon.

A horror movie written and directed by Shana Feste, the story is relatable in an age of people increasingly going on dates without meeting the other person first. A hard-working single mom gets her dating life back on track with a blind date set up by her boss. But when she realizes her date is far more sinister than she could have imagined, she has to escape through the streets of L.A., which the creep she's dated seems to be in charge of. It's a premise almost guaranteed to keep you white-knuckled to the end.

The lead is played by 2019 Charlie's Angels star Ella Balinska. Pilou Asbeck, who you might recognize as Euron Greyjoy from Game of Thrones, plays the date. Then there's Clark Gregg, best known as Agent Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Aml Ameen from Maze Runner and Oladayo Okeniyi (Thresh from Hunger Games). Plus it's the only stand-alone Blumhouse movie on the 2021 Amazon slate, featuring a beautiful woman literally running from the date from hell.

The Boy from Medellin

It's one thing to be woke; it's another thing to have it forced on you. International reggaeton star J. Balvin is Colombian, and in 2019, Colombia was engulfed with protests against right-wing leader Ivan Duque. This was a nation still reeling from Pablo Escobar, the Cali cartel, and the FARCs. In Colombia, politics, fighting and rebellion are about more than disagreements; they're ingrained in the national consciousness and have often had seriously fatal consequences.

The Boy from Medellin documents J. Balvin heading home for what should have been his coming home party, a big stadium show. He had a documentary crew for the week leading up to it more as a way to chronicle a boy-done-good story. But then the story takes an unforeseen pivot.

As the protests get real and eventually lead to the cancellation of other shows, the apolitical J. Balvin is faced with the reality that he's going to have to choose sides, even if he didn't really want to. It's kismet when a documentary inadvertently chronicles the struggles of an artist as his people force him to embrace an agenda he may or may not totally agree with.

Amazon picked up the doc in August 2020, just ahead of its premiere at the digital Toronto Film Festival.

Le Bal des Folles

In late 19th century Paris, women deemed too far outside social norms and mores were institutionalized. A leading team of neurologists sought to cure these women of hysteria at the Salpetriere hospital. In the award-winning novel upon which this movie is based, Le Bal de Folles – translated as The Mad Women's Ball – we follow these women in the asylum. Apparently the Salpetriere had an annual ball organized with the patients that attracted the who's-who of Parisian society. The movie follows the patients through this whole experience, including the protagonist, who's seeking to prove she can u use cash app card at atm unfairly deemed insane.

Melanie Laurent, memorable as the femme fatale who killed all the Nazis in Inglourious Basterds, wrote, directed, and stars in this adaptation of the novel. In a time where women are calling more and more attention to how their freedoms have been infringed upon and are still being attacked, this film couldn't be more important — especially as it follows the Laurent character's journey through darkness and her drive to find her own freedom.

The movie is currently listed as being in post-production, with Amazon Prime as the distributor.

Welcome to The Blumhouse anthology

Blumhouse and Amazon Studios created a series last year called Welcome to the Blumhouse that brought four amazing thriller/horror flicks to the Amazon fold, with the next round dropping in 2021.

There's The Manor, in which a woman (Barbara Hershey) who recently suffered a stroke moves into a nursing home that she thinks is haunted by an evil force. She has to get out, but first she has to recover to the point that she can survive on her own.

In Black as Night, a teenage girl (Abbie Gayle) builds her self-esteem by hunting vampires in New Orleans and is joined by her friends in the effort.

In Madres, a Mexican-American couple move to a California farm town expecting the birth of their first child. But soon horrific complications and visions begin to frighten them. As these escalate, the couple begins to question whether they're due to a curse or something more evil. 

Bingo centers on a tight-knit group of seniors, led by Adriana Barraza, who refuse to change. They're strong enough to fight anybody threatening their retired bliss. But then their bingo hall is sold to a force that may be fueled by more than money.

Annette

Adam Driver is on fire these days. Marion Cotillard has been blowing doors off since she won an Oscar for her turn as Edith Piaf in 2007's La Vie en Rose. And to see the English language debut of Leos Carax, a French director with a deep love of La Nouvelle Vague, is always fun. These factors alone make Annette, starring Cotillard and Driver and directed by Carax, a film not to miss.

The movie was acquired by Amazon Prime in 2017 and has been in the pipeline for a while, but it is officially completed. 

Annette is a musical where almost every line is sung, with the songs written by the band Sparks. The plot is centered on a stand-up comedian (Driver) and his famous opera soprano wife (Cotillard) who are living a high-flying life of luxury and beauty.

Then their daughter's born, which puts a big damper on their life in the rarefied air enjoyed by acclaimed artists. When their daughter turns out to have a unique gift, things take a big turn guaranteed to make everything different. Annette promises to be a great film, especially if you're at least somewhat a fan of musicals.

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain

Biopics about artists are always great — especially one about a 19th century artist known for surreal cat paintings, as is the protagonist of The Electrical Life of Louis Wain. Will Sharpe directs from his own script (co-credited with Simon Stephenson), which in 2014 made the Brit List of hottest unproduced UK screenplays. But on top of the script and the director, this film delivers a dynamite British cast. While StudioCanal has European rights, Amazon Studios oversees the US release.

Benedict Cumberbatch plays Wain, the eccentric man whose cat paintings presaged our obsession with crazy cat videos, anthropomorphized animals, and psychedelic colors. Wain became schizophrenic, possibly due to toxoplasmosis from cat feces. Claire Foy (The Crown) plays his wife Emily, who meets a tragic fate. The extremely accomplished Toby Jones (who played another iconic British artist, JMW Turner, in the play The Painter) also appears, as does Jamie Demetriou (the guy with the big teeth in Fleabag) and many more British dynamos.

The movie potentially promises to be a tour de force about brilliance, madness, love, and loss, as well as everything in between — and, of course, cats. Definitely can't forget the cats.

Voyeurs

Voyeurs speaks to a world where people are constantly looking out their windows to feel a connection with somebody else, if only by watching them live their lives. Justice Smith, the star of Detective Pikachu (as well as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and the colorful hip hop series The Get Down) plays Thomas, who moves with Pippa (Euphoria's Sydney Sweeney) into their dream apartment. Everything is perfect for these beautiful young lovers — at first, anyway.

Then they notice their windows look directly into the apartment across the way, where an attractive couple is living what seems to be a dramatic life they can't look away from — a relationship full of passion, both good and bad.

But as the relationship of the couple across the street grows increasingly volatile, Pippa and Thomas decide they have to do something. They try to intervene, anonymously of course. But unfortunately, no good deed goes unpunished and things quickly start to go very wrong. Written and directed by Michael Mohan, this may be the kind of thriller you can't take your eyes off.

The Burial

In November 2020, Jamie Foxx joined The Burial as producer and star. The project is still in development but given the talent involved, it has a great likelihood of going forward and being out within the next year. Maggie Betts is directing; her last film, Novitiate, won the Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Director at Sundance in 2017. The script is written by Pulitzer winner Doug Wright, based on a New Yorker article by Jonathan Harr. Put the parts together and The Burial has the potential of being an entertaining story about funeral homes and legal battles.

The story alone is amazing and weird: a bankrupt funeral home owner hires a flamboyant attorney to sue a rival over an agreement gone wrong. This could be fun, in a wacky and morbid way. One can only hope for a Six Feet Under meets Better Call Saul vibe, but given how secretive the process has been and how few details have been confirmed — plus the fact that it's listed as "In development" on IMDB – it could go a lot of different directions, any of which will undoubtedly be worth a watch.

Invasion

In post-production now, Invasion is about a father who goes on the run with his sons in an attempt to protect them from a threatening alien invasion. Along the way, they all have to fight for their lives, growing and discovering their own strengths in the process. Riz Ahmed (Rogue One) leads new movies on amazon cast including Rory Cochrane (who's come a long way since playing Slater in Dazed and Confused), and Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer, who is worth watching on a cereal commercial much less a high-profile Amazon family pursuit film involving aliens. The movie is directed by Michael Pearce, the up-and-coming British director of Beast.

The story promises to be frightening, or at least tense and thrilling. It was written by Pearce and Joe Barton, who wrote the amazing chase horror film The Ritual. If it's anything like that one, Invasion will have audiences locked in until the credits roll. Since it's in post-production, there's even a chance it will drop in late 2021.

All the Old Knives

Albert L. Ortega/Getty Images

At first glance, All the Old Knives seems like it could have a romantic air to it. Chris Pine and Thandie Newton play CIA operatives and former lovers who reunite at Carmel-by-the-Sea. Their conversation moves into the hijacking of Royal Jordanian 127, which led to the death of all onboard and is still a disgrace for the CIA even years later. As the flirtatious dinner goes on and the talk gets more real, it's soon revealed that this failed mission may have compromised a CIA agent. Eventually it becomes clear that one of them may not survive to the end of the meal.

Based on Olen Steinhauer's eponymous New York Times best selling novel, All the Old Knives features a cast that is fireworks. Let's not forget that another Steinhauer spy novel, 2009's The Tourist, was adapted into the 2010 film starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, although there may be some out there who want to forget it.

Still, the cast includes Pine and Newton, along with Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Two Popes) and Laurence Fishburne, who joined in November. Top it off with director Janus Metz, who directed the well-received Borg vs. McEnroe and Amazon's ZeroZeroZero, and we've got a can't-miss spy thriller.

Fred and Ginger

As the saying about Fred Astaire goes, "Sure he was great, but don't forget that Ginger Rogers did everything he did, backwards. and in high heels." The biopic Fred and Ginger dives into the lives of arguably the most famous dancing duo in American cinema, from their magnetic careers to exploring their little-known off-screen romance.

For a long time, Astaire got the bulk of credit as America's great screen dance impresario. But his greatest footwork was with Ginger Rogers, to the point that their names are rarely mentioned separately. Their on-screen chemistry was indelible and Fred and Ginger aims to explore why.

Jamie Bell, who began his career as the dancing protagonist of Billy Elliot, will play Fred. Margaret Qualley, perhaps best known as Pussycat, the hitchhiker who brings Cliff to the ranch in Once Upon a Time. in Hollywood, will play Ginger. Qualley also practiced ballet for most of her young life, making it at 16 to the American Ballet Theatre's summer program. Though she quit ballet, she received an Emmy nod for her turn as Broadway star Ann Reinking in FX's Fosse/Verdon.

This project was only announced in December 2020 and is currently listed as "in development." 

Being the Ricardos

Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball. Javier Bardem as Desi New movies on amazon. Directed by Aaron Sorkin. This is Being the Ricardos. Seriously, what else do you need to know? 

The script is a compelling slice-of-life story that takes place over a one-week period during the filming of I Love Lucy. It starts with a table read of a script and ends in the production of the episode. During that week, Lucy and Desi hit some serious snags that may jeopardize their marriage, which would have a huge impact both on and off-screen. This 1st grade addition and subtraction worksheets easily become one of the most anticipated films of 2022.

Sorkin, who's nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay with The Trial of the Chicago 7, wrote Being the Ricardos in addition to directing it. Joining Kidman and Bardem in the cast are J.K. Simmons as William Frawley, the actor who played Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy, Nina Arianda as Vivian Vance, who played Frawley's on-screen wife Ethel, Tony Hale as I Love Lucy showrunner Jess Oppenheimer and Alia Shawkat as writer Madelyn Pugh.

I Want You Back

When you get dumped from your happily-ever-after, the only solution is to find somebody else in the same boat and go from commiserating to hatching an insane plan to get your respective exes to leave their new partners and get back with you. That's a totally logical approach to the situation.

That's also the plot of I Want You Back, and this premise had all the makings of comedy gold. Especially with funny queen Jenny Slate and the inimitable Charlie Day playing the jilted, scheming lovers looking for redemption. There's also Scott Eastwood, Jami Gertz, Manny Jacinto, and Gina Rodriguez rounding out the cast, according to IMDB.

Director Jason Orley helmed two Pete Davidson works recently, both his film Big Time Adolescence and his stand-up special Alive from New York, so he obviously knows something about comedy. But most importantly, while the cast was announced in February 2021, the film has already been listed as filming on IMDB. Which means that there's a good chance we'll be seeing if Slate and Day reunite with their unrequited loves before 2021 is over (or early 2022 at the latest).

The sooner the better — given the challenges of the last year, everybody could use a good laugh.

Master

Ghosts. College drama. A strong black female team from writer/director Mariama Diallo to producer and actress Regina Hall to leads Zoe Renee and Amber Gray.Master has so many things to look forward to.

First the plot: Two black women make their way onto the hallowed grounds of elite New England university Ancaster, guided by the black queer head of Belleville house. But there's a twist: this particular university was built on a former Salem witch hunt gallows hill and all sorts of supernatural stuff starts happening. So we have women of color navigating a world of privilege against the background of occult frights rising through the prestigious school grounds.

"From the moment we read Master and met Mariama we knew we needed to be part of bringing this spine-chilling story to life," said Amazon Studios Co-Head of Movies Julie Rapaport in the 2020 announcement of the addition of Renee and Gray.

Hall joined as producer back in 2019. She plays the queer black head of house who has to help Renee and Gray navigate racial tensions, stuffy prestigious halls, and occult threats. It may seem that as the first big talent attached, and playing a mentor or hero figure, Hall is in fact the real master of the project.

Amazon films you might how to find td bank routing number on app missed in 2021

There's a lot to look forward to for the rest of 2021 and just beyond. But Amazon Prime has already dropped several great films in 2021 that you should check out in the meantime.

Let's start with a movie that probably nobody missed but just in case: why haven't you watched Coming 2 America yet? The sequel to one of the most iconic movies of the 1980s brings back Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley and Louie Anderson while adding Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, and Tracy Morgan.

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things is a teen redux of the time loop Groundhog Day concept, written by Lev Grossman and starring up-and-comers Kathryn Newton, Kyle Allen and Jermaine Harris. Allen and Harris play two teens who relive the same day, eventually leading them to create the map from which comes the title. It's that charming teen date movie even grown-ups will (maybe secretly) enjoy.

Then there's Bliss, starring Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek. Greg, played by Wilson, is a double loser, having recently gotten fired and divorced. Then he meets Isabel, played by Hayek, a street woman who believes that their messed-up world is a computer simulation. And Greg may be starting to buy in as well.

While you're waiting for the upcoming films on this list, check these three out. And new movies on amazon you've already seen them, might as well watch again.

The Green Knight

A24

Dev Patel leads the cast of this acclaimed indie film, which is based on a 14th century poem about Sir Gawain, nephew of the legendary King Arthur. While steeped in folklore, viewers should be warned that this isn’t an action flick in the vein of Guy Ritchie’s Legend of the Sword, but fidelity 2 cash back credit card review a more slow-paced and thoughtful drama which occasionally veers into completely surreal territory.

When the monstrous Green Knight appears before Arthur’s court one day with an intriguing challenge. He offers any knight the chance to strike him with his axe, but only on the condition that he may return their blow one year later. Gawain jumps at an opportunity to prove himself, chopping off the mysterious creature’s head, but not anticipating that it would survive the attack and go laughing into the night. The following year, he goes on a journey to find the Green Knight and settle their debt.

The Green Knight comes courtesy of director David Lowery, whose measured approach to the source material creates some truly atmospheric scenes, while the addition of Daniel Hart’s haunting score often drives the tension to new heights. Patel gives an excellent performance in the lead role, portraying an unlikely hero who is flawed yet utterly compelling, with memorable supporting roles going to Barry Keoghan (Eternals), Joel Edgerton (The Underground Railroad), and Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider). – David Craig

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

Amazon

Amazon Prime Video bagged the exclusive rights to this film adaptation of the popular stage musical of the same name, which follows a 16-year-old boy who overcomes his bullies at school by forging a new identity as a drag queen. With the performative art being more popular than ever right now thanks to the likes of RuPaul, this is a story that’s sure to resonate with many viewers – and remarkably, it’s based on true events (see BBC Three documentary Jamie: Drag Queen at 16).

This incarnation features a different cast to the stage production, with newcomer Max Harwood taking the highly keybank atm withdrawal limit after title role and earning critical acclaim for his performance. The supporting cast includes familiar faces Sarah Lancashire, Ralph Ineson, Adeel Akhtar and Richard E Grant, while West End star Layton Williams and the real Jamie himself pop up in cameo appearances (so keep your eyes peeled).

Some critics took issue with the film’s somewhat sugar-coated plot, as there’s little in the way of tension over whether Jamie will achieve his dreams. However, for many viewers, I suspect that level of unbridled positivity and celebration is exactly what they’re looking for. Indeed, if it’s feel-good viewing your after, Jamie’s uplifting story should have no trouble putting a smile on your face. – David Craig

Palm Springs

Hulu

Remarkable romcoms have become a rare commodity in the streaming era, with few modern movies managing to stand out in the endless sea of generic, paint-by-numbers “chick-flicks” regularly churned out by the countless platforms we subscribe to. Thankfully, Palm Springs – the sci-fi romcom starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti – swooped in last year to save the day, giving the genre a much-needed shot of adrenaline.

Best described as Groundhog Day meets Four Weddings and a Funeral, Palm Springs follows Sarah (Milioti), an apathetic maid-of-honour just trying to get through her sister’s California wedding when she finds herself trapped in a time loop with charming, care-free wedding guest Nyles (Samberg) and the pair are forced to relive the same day over-and-over again.

A fast-paced, hugely funny and refreshing take on the time loop concept, Palm Springs features stunning performances from Milioti and Samberg, an outstanding supporting cast made up of J.K. Simmons, Meredith Hagner, Camila Mendes and Peter Gallagher, and surprisingly twists that will have you returning for multiple viewings. – Lauren Morris

Sound of Metal

Riz Ahmed spent eight months of his life preparing for the lead role in this film, learning to play the drums and communicate in sign language. And it shows. Ahmed plays a punk metal drummer, Ruben living the dream – he’s out on the road with his girlfriend, Lou (Olivia Cooke) playing gigs and feeding off the adrenaline. They have music and each other, nothing else is required.

But he’s catapulted into a nightmare when he wakes up and discovers his hearing is rapidly declining as a result of a ruptured ear drum. Concerned the crisis will throw him back into his old patterns of drug abuse, Lou sends him to a deaf-friendly commune, where he must learn to accept his new life. The question is, can he ever lean into his new existence, or will he always pine for the way things were?

This unusually spiritual, soul-searching film was 13 years in the making, earned six Oscar nominations and was clearly a labour of love for everyone involved. If the test of a good movie is whether you’re still thinking about it a week later, The Sound of Metal passes with flying colours. And the central performance by Ahmed is just spell-binding. – Emma Bullimore

The Mauritanian

Amazon Prime Video

It may have been a year without big blockbuster screenings and red carpet premieres, but that hasn’t stopped Golden Globe-winning films, like Kevin Macdonald’s The Mauritanian, from reaching would-be cinema-goers at home. Based on the true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, this legal drama stars The Serpent’s Tahar Rahim as Slahi, a Mauritanian engineer who was detained without charge or trial by the US government at Guantanamo Bay for 14 years, during which time he was subjected to horrific torture techniques.

Featuring a heart-breaking and captivating performance from Rahim, The Mauritanian follows Slahi as he’s finally helped by pro-bono lawyers Nancy Hollander (Jodie Foster) and Teri Duncan (Shailene Woodley) who fight for years to get him the trial he deserves whilst dealing with redacted government documents, uncooperative officials and a passionate military prosecutor played by Benedict Cumberbatch. An enlightening watch, The Mauritanian tells Slahi’s remarkable and tragic story, shining a light on the cruelty of the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation techniques” after 9/11 with a terrific turn from the award-winning Foster. – Lauren Morris

Parasite

Curzon

The first non-English language film to win Best Picture at the Oscars, South Korean black comedy Parasite re-wrote the record books when it was released in 2019. But beyond the awards glory (the movie ended up winning four Academy Awards, two BAFTAs and a Golden Globe), this is just a thoroughly entertaining watch. You’ll quickly settle into the subtitles as you learn about a struggling family of four – two parents and two twenty-something children – living in cramped conditions in the city.

One by one, they hustle their way into well-paid jobs with the unsuspecting Parks family, pretending to be qualified as an English tutor, an art therapist, a chauffeur and a housekeeper. It’s all harmless enough to start with, and they settle into their new way of life, pulling the wool over their employers’ eyes. But the caper soon turns into a dark, unsettling tale, as unexpected twists force the masquerading family to take drastic action – your heart will be in your mouth before the final credits roll. – Emma Bullimore

I Care a Lot

Amazon

If you enjoyed Rosamund Pike’s blood-curdling turn in Gone Girl, you’ll love her performance in this fast-paced thriller, which earned the British actress a Golden Globe earlier this year. Pike plays ruthless Marla Grayson, a woman appointed by the courts to act as the legal guardian of elderly people who need assistance to take care of themselves. The problem is, the people she chooses are absolutely fine – the only thing they have to be scared of is Grayson, who steals their money, puts them in a home and exploits them for her own purposes. But one day she picks the wrong elderly woman.

Her son is a gangster (played by Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage) and he’ll do whatever it takes to make sure his mum is OK. Cue a cat and mouse game, where both players will stop at nothing to get what they want. Impossible to predict and dealing with unsettling subject matter, I Care A Lot is a film that will get your heart pumping and keep you guessing until the very end. Refreshingly original and brought to life by brilliant performances, it’s real gem that you should add to your ‘to watch’ list immediately. – Emma Bullimore

SEAC

Jordan Peele had already announced himself as a vital new directorial voice with his sublime debut Get Out, and he delivered another brilliant slice of social satire inflected horror with this hugely entertaining 2019 film.The film centres on a family who, while trying to enjoy a relaxing holiday, are suddenly faced with a terrifying and unusual threat: a gang of red jumpsuit wearing, scissor wielding doppelgangers who seem intent on murdering them at any cost. It soon transpires that they are not alone – everyone in the nearby vicinity is being similarly haunted by these figures, who announce themselves as The Tethered.

In the ensuing drama, there are some brilliant action sequences, perfect needle drops and some moments of wonderfully dark humour, not to mention a few twists and turns along the way. The performances are great all around, but it’s Lupita Nyong’o who steals the show with a breathtaking dual role – how she wasn’t at least Oscar nominated for this we’ll never know. – Patrick Cremona

Suicide Squad

SEAC

It may not have the highest reviews, but there’s something ultimately very fun and weirdly charming about David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. A group of criminal misfits are tasked with saving the world following the death of Superman. If they succeed, their prison sentences will be shortened, but if not, they will die. Their mission is to defeat Enchantress (played by Cara Delevingne), but it won’t be easy, as she’s a powerful witch with powers beyond belief. Culturally, Suicide Squad proved to be enormous as it introduced us to Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn whose beloved character launched a thousand Halloween costumes.

The film might not have the strongest plot and some criticism was levelled at the bafflingly short amount of time Jared Leto’s much-hyped Joker appeared in the film, but the cast are electric and the soundtrack is certainly very catchy. It is also the first film in the DCEU to ever win an Academy Award (Best Makeup and Hairstyling). Plus, it’s worth catching up on Suicide Squad before watching the beloved Harley spin-off Birds of Prey and upcoming sequel The Suicide Squad, due later this year. – Helen Daly

Molly’s Game

Based on an incredible true story, Molly’s Game is a 2017 film that sees Jessica Chastain in the role of Los Angeles poker queen Molly Bloom. A former skier who becomes the leader of a regular high-rolling poker game, Molly is an engaging and charismatic character who comes up against the dark underbelly of Hollywood. One of the most memorable characters is Michael Cera’s Player X, a badly behaved composite character that is based on several real-life movie stars who played in Molly’s game. Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Chris O’Dowd also appear, making this a highly star-studded affair.

With a typically tight script from Aaron Sorkin (who also makes his directorial debut behind the camera), Molly’s Game is a film that ticks along at pace and packs in a lot of tension. As well as offering a unique perspective on the lives of mega-star millionaires, Molly’s Game also veers into crime drama territory as the FBI become increasingly interested in Molly. Chastain earned a Golden Globe for her performance in the title role, which mixes charisma and chaos wonderfully well. Sorkin’s script was also much-touted on the awards circuit, picking up nominations at the Oscars, the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs. – Rob Leane

The Notebook

Arguably one of the most romantic love stories of all time, The Notebook is a film everyone truly must see. Based on a novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams play lovers Noah and Allie who are simply meant to be together, but the course of true love never did run smoothly. Although at the time of new movies on amazon the film garnered mixed reviews, The Notebook has gone on to achieve cult status, propelling Gosling and McAdams into the stars we know today.

The lead actors really do make the film. At times the story does hit highs and lows, but McAdams and Gosling always carry the script with delicacy. The ending will no doubt break your heart, making the whole film worth sticking with – just make sure you’re loaded up with tissues because we guarantee you’ll need them. – Helen Daly

Joker

Warner Bros.

If you thought that Zack Snyder’s Justice League was dark, wait until you get a load of Joker. The film that won Joaquin Phoenix an Oscar in 2020 and received 11 other nominations from the Academy, Joker is pretty much as well-respected as a comic-book movie can get. Heavily inspired by Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy, Joker puts a serious spin on DC Comics’ Clown Prince of Crime, imagining Batman’s nemesis as a down-and-out comedian with mental health struggles who is trapped in an uncaring society.

Although it stands up remarkably well as a serious film in its own right, Joker is also an interesting proposition for superhero-loving moviegoers. With a young Bruce Wayne, his doom parents and Alfred the butler all making appearances, it almost feels like the prelude to a Batman film we’ll never get to see. Robert DeNiro, Zazie Beetz and Marc Maron round out the cast, with director Todd Phillips working from a screenplay by Scott Silver to deliver a comic-book movie like no other. And to be honest, we may never see its like again. It’s well worth checking out this film, if you haven’t already, just to see an altogether different take on the DC universe. – Rob Leane

Kong: Skull Island

SEAC

Of all the instalments in Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse franchise, this is by far the most fun – an Apocalypse Now inspired adventure with a brilliant Vietnam War soundtrack and some wildly entertaining death scenes.

At the centre of the plot is Samuel L. Jackson as Packard, a US Army colonel just about to leave Vietnam, who is encouraged to go on one final mission: a top secret journey amazon prime food delivery nyc the mysterious island which houses the famed giant primate. Naturally the local creatures aren’t the most welcoming to Packard and his crew, and they face a tough time before they even find Kong himself – resulting in an enjoyable thrilling, if not exactly envelope pushing, experience for viewers.

The film’s best moments come after the introduction of John C. Reilly as a seemingly crazed army veteran who has come to love Kong and his life on the island – lending the film a little more heart than your average monster flick. – Patrick Cremona

Godzilla vs Kong

SEAC

After three earlier films in Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse franchise, two of cinema’s most iconic characters finally went up against each other in epic blockbuster, Godzilla vs Kong, released earlier in 2021, a film which very much lives up to its name.

The two titans share the screen with a range of human characters – played by some big names including Alexander Skarsgaard, Rebecca Hall and Millie Bobby Brown – but despite a number of storylines involving that star-studded cast, it’s ultimately the battle between the pair of gargantuan creatures that is easily the main event.

Even the most diehard Godzilla fan would be prepared to admit that the film is flawed, with some two-dimensional characters and questionable pacing, and yet it’s hard not to admire the spectacle on some level, as you’re sucked into the well-choreographed fights in all their bombastic glory. – Patrick Cremona

Back to the Future

SEAC

Join Marty and Doc on the adventure of a lifetime in Back to the Future on Amazon Prime. The Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale film brings time travel slap-bang into the 80s and is the epitome of that era. Teenager Marty (played by the charismatic Michael J. Fox) is too cool for school and plans to be a musician until his scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) shows him a whole new world, made possible by his trusted time-travelling DeLorean.

There truly isn’t a more charming movie to cheer you up on a dreary weekend. Marty and Doc are (quite literally) electric together and the humour is sweet. You’ll be singing Huey Lewis and the News tunes all day while dreaming of one day owning your own DeLorean. There’s a reason it’s a classic – it’s simply never aged. Yes it’s set in the 80s, but Back to the Future could be released today and it would still be as loved and would more importantly still be considered one of the greatest films ever made. – Helen Daly

The Truman Show

SEAC

Comedy superstar Jim Carrey proved himself as a gifted dramatic actor with this prophetic offering, which first hit cinemas in 1998, in which he stars as Truman Burbank – a man blissfully unaware his entire life is a fabrication created for a television show watched by the world. When strange things start happening in his quaint neighbourhood, it sparks a thirst for adventure that could be the key to shattering the illusion in which he has been trapped.

While The Truman Show certainly has some funny moments, particularly shared between Carrey and his cold on-screen wife played by Ozark’s Laura Linney, it’s the emotional moments that will likely stick with you longer. Truman becomes an increasingly tragic figure as his life starts to unravel and by the end of the film, you’ll be on the edge of your seat hoping he can free himself once and for all.

Raking in more than $250 million at the global box office, The Truman Show was a mammoth success and went on to score major nominations at the Academy Awards and the BAFTAs. The film was a favourite at the Golden Bank of america phone number please, where both Carrey and co-star Ed Harris won trophies for their performance, while the film also snagged the prize for Best Original Score with its atmospheric soundtrack. – David Craig Watch The Truman Show on Amazon Prime Video

Mean Girls

Paramount Pictures

A film that has generated no shortage of hilarious GIFs and quotes, Mean Girls is an all-time classic of the teen comedy genre. Written by American comedy star Tina Fey (30 Rock), it introduces us to Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan), a teenage girl experiencing high school for the first time after a childhood spent being tutored at home.

She quickly new movies on amazon a brutal hierarchy dominated by a group called The Plastics, led by the meanest girl of them all: Regina George (Rachel McAdams). An initial attempt to infiltrate and destroy these titans goes awry when Cady finds herself adopting their two-faced tactics as her popularity soars. In the process, she risks losing the people who truly cared about her.

The entire cast are at the top of their game with strong breakout performances from Lohan, McAdams, Lizzy Caplan and Academy Award nominee Amanda Seyfried. Meanwhile, Fey’s script is nothing short of hilarious, occasionally veering into the surrealism that was such a big part of 30 Rock. She returned to pen a stage musical based on the film, which went on to earn 12 nominations at 2018’s Tony Awards. – David Craig Watch Mean Girls on Amazon Prime Video

Raya and the Last Dragon

Disney/YouTube

The latest animation from Disney, Raya and the Last Dragon takes inspiration from the various countries and cultures of Southeast Asia, including Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Based in the fantasy world of Kumandra, it tells the tale of a young girl, the titular Raya, who is tasked with finding the kingdom’s last surviving dragon in a bid to stave off the sinister Druun – monsters who have returned to wreak havoc after an absence of 500 years.

When she finds the dragon, though, she is surprised to learn that rather than being the brave and fearless warrior she imagined, she is actually the wacky younger sister of the more heroic dragons of legend. What follows is an excellent adventure with all manner of entertaining side characters, voiced by an all star cast that includes Kelly Marie Tran, Awkwafina, Sandra Oh, Benedict Wong and Gemma Chan.

It’s worth watching for the beautiful animation alone, and the frequent action sequences are some of the best you’ll find in an animated movie, having been brought to life with the help of a number of martial arts experts. – Patrick Cremona

Birds of Prey

With Margot Robbie’s charmingly unhinged performance as Harley Quinn being one of the only positives to come out of 2016’s Suicide Squad, it came as no surprise when Warner Bros gave the murderous Fleabag of DC superheroes her own film with Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).

Set four years after Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress was defeated, the Cathy Yan-directed blockbuster follows Harley Quinn as she processes her break-up from the unseen Joker and without his protection, finds herself in the crosshairs of sadistic Gotham mobster Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor).

After teaming up with alcoholic detective Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), super-powered vigilante Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), orphaned assassin The Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and pick-pocketing child Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), Harley Quinn fights back against the criminals she’s made enemies of and learns to put her trust in other people.

Featuring a stellar cast, high-stakes chases, huge explosions and captivating fight sequences, Birds of Prey is everything you want from a superhero film and more, with writer Christina Hodson putting a fun, tongue-in-cheek spin on the genre that perfectly epitomises the unpredictable antihero that is Harley Quinn. – Lauren Morris

The Gentlemen

Miramax/YouTube

Superstar director Guy Ritchie went back to his 1st battalion 26th marines 3rd marine division for this gangster flick, which serves as a spiritual successor to the likes of Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The story revolves around Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey), a drug lord looking to get out of the business while keeping his opulent lifestyle intact.

That will be no easy task with enemies lurking around every corner, from rival gangs to sleazy private detectives, all looking to carve up a slice of Mickey’s empire for themselves. While the stakes are high throughout, the film sustains a relatively light tone overall with a witty and chaotic script featuring an abundance of larger-than-life characters.

Must-Watch Amazon Prime Movies Coming In 2021 And Beyond

By Ryan Ariano/April 12, 2021 8:45 pm EST/Updated: April 12, 2021 8:45 pm EST

Founded in 2010, Amazon Studios has long been at the forefront of the streaming revolution. Originally an added benefit for subscribers to Amazon Prime, the studio's projects have become synonymous with the subscription service.

By combining the development of original series and films as well as acquiring other projects, Amazon has built up a huge in-house roster of programming available to Prime subscribers. Amazon Studios even made history by being the first streaming service to win Academy Awards, for Manchester by the Sea and The Salesman.

Now Amazon is a studio powerhouse, producing and distributing some of the most anticipated upcoming series and movies to grace screens small and big. Already in 2021, Amazon's Coming 2 America made a huge splash as the much-needed sequel to a classic comedy, while the next few films set to arrive in 2021 from Amazon Studios may well capture the same lightning with audiences. The films being developed and produced by the studio for late 2021 and beyond prove that the streamer will be knocking out hits for months and years to come.

Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

Michael B. Jordan got his start as the unforgettable Wallace in The Wire but it was his turn in Fruitvale Station that made him into a bankable lead. His Killmonger arguably steals the show in Black Panther, and Creed was one of the best reboots of a 40-year-old franchise. So no doubt the world is excited for his new movie releasing April 30, Tom Clancy's Without Remorse. But the action-packed special forces thriller about a Navy S.E.A.L. taking vengeance for the murder of his wife has even more reasons to watch.

The screenplay was written by Will Staples (The Right Stuff TV series) and Taylor Sheridan (writer of films like Hell or High Water, Wind River and Sicario, as well as showrunner for Yellowstone). It's directed by Stefano Sollima, whose series Gomorrah is a continuation of the eponymous gritty modern-day Italian gangster film. The cast is rounded out by Jamie Bell, Guy Pearce, Colman Domingo (remember Victor from The Walking Dead?), Brett Gelman and many others.

Plus it's based on a Tom Clancy novel. While the film was originally produced by Paramount Pictures, Amazon acquired the rights as a result of theaters being shut down by COVID-19. Get ready for some deep conspiracy, lots of bullets, and Michael B. at his finest.

Run Sweetheart Run

Run Sweetheart Run first debuted at the 2020 Sundance Festival. The producers planned to next take it to South by Southwest and then into a full theatrical release. When the latter was curbed by the global COVID-19 pandemic, producers Blumhouse and Automatik sold distribution rights to Amazon.

A horror movie written and directed by Shana Feste, the story is relatable in an age of people increasingly going on dates without meeting the other person first. A hard-working single mom gets her dating life back on track with a blind date set up by her boss. But when she realizes her date is far more sinister than she could have imagined, she has to escape through the streets of L.A., which the creep she's dated seems to be in charge of. It's a premise almost guaranteed to keep you white-knuckled to the end.

The lead is played by 2019 Charlie's Angels star Ella Balinska. Pilou Asbeck, who you might recognize as Euron Greyjoy from Game of Thrones, plays the date. Then there's Clark Gregg, best known as Agent Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Aml Ameen from Maze Runner and Oladayo Okeniyi (Thresh from Hunger Games). Plus it's the only stand-alone Blumhouse movie on the 2021 Amazon slate, featuring a beautiful woman literally running from the date from hell.

The Boy from Medellin

It's one thing to be woke; it's another thing to have it forced on you. International reggaeton star J. Balvin is Colombian, and in 2019, Colombia was engulfed with protests against right-wing leader Ivan Duque. This was a nation still reeling from Pablo Escobar, the Cali cartel, and the FARCs. In Colombia, politics, fighting and rebellion are about more than disagreements; they're ingrained in the national consciousness and have often had seriously fatal consequences.

The Boy from Medellin documents J. Balvin heading home for what should have been his coming home party, a big stadium show. He had a documentary crew for the week leading up to it more as a way to chronicle a boy-done-good story. But then the story takes an unforeseen pivot.

As the protests get real and eventually lead to the cancellation of other shows, the apolitical J. Balvin is faced with the reality that he's going to have to choose sides, even if he didn't really want to. It's kismet when a documentary inadvertently chronicles the struggles of an artist as his people force him to embrace an agenda he may or may not totally agree with.

Amazon picked up the doc in August 2020, just ahead of its premiere at the digital Toronto Film Festival.

Le Bal des Folles

In late 19th century Paris, women deemed too far outside social norms and mores were institutionalized. A leading team of neurologists sought to cure these women of hysteria at the Salpetriere hospital. In the award-winning novel upon which this movie is based, Le Bal de Folles – translated as The Mad Women's Ball – we follow these women in the asylum. Apparently the Salpetriere had an annual ball organized with the patients that attracted the who's-who of Parisian society. The movie follows the patients through this whole experience, including the protagonist, who's seeking to prove she was unfairly deemed insane.

Melanie Laurent, memorable as the femme fatale who killed all the Nazis in Inglourious Basterds, wrote, directed, and stars in this adaptation of the novel. In a time where women are calling more and more attention to how their freedoms have been infringed upon and are still being attacked, this film couldn't be more important — especially as it follows the Laurent character's journey through darkness and her drive to find her own freedom.

The movie is currently listed as being in post-production, with Amazon Prime as the distributor.

Welcome to The Blumhouse anthology

Blumhouse and Amazon Studios created a series last year called Welcome to the Blumhouse that brought four amazing thriller/horror flicks to the Amazon fold, with the next round dropping in 2021.

There's The Manor, in which a woman (Barbara Hershey) who recently suffered a stroke moves into a nursing home that she thinks is haunted by an evil force. She has to get out, but first she has to recover to the point that she can survive on her own.

In Black as Night, a teenage girl (Abbie Gayle) builds her self-esteem by hunting vampires in New Orleans and is joined by her friends in the effort.

In Madres, a Mexican-American couple move to a California farm town expecting the birth of their first child. But soon horrific complications and visions begin to frighten them. As these escalate, the couple begins to question whether they're due to a curse or something more evil. 

Bingo centers on a tight-knit group of seniors, led by Adriana Barraza, who refuse to change. They're strong enough to fight anybody threatening their retired bliss. But then their bingo hall is sold to a force that may be fueled by more than money.

Annette

Adam Driver is on fire these days. Marion Cotillard has been blowing doors off since she won an Oscar for her turn as Edith Piaf in 2007's La Vie en Rose. And to see the English language debut of Leos Carax, a French director with a deep love of La Nouvelle Vague, is always fun. These factors alone make Annette, starring Cotillard and Driver and directed by Carax, a film not to miss.

The movie was acquired by Amazon Prime in 2017 and has been in the pipeline for a while, but it is officially completed. 

Annette is a musical where almost every line is sung, with the songs written by the band Sparks. The plot is centered on a stand-up comedian (Driver) and his famous opera soprano wife (Cotillard) who are living a high-flying life of luxury and beauty.

Then their daughter's born, which puts a big damper on their life in the rarefied air enjoyed by acclaimed artists. When their daughter turns out to have a unique gift, things take a big turn guaranteed to make everything different. Annette promises to be a great film, especially if you're at least somewhat a fan of musicals.

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain

Biopics about artists are always great — especially one about a 19th century artist known for surreal cat paintings, as is the protagonist of The Electrical Life of Louis Wain. Will Sharpe directs from his own script (co-credited with Simon Stephenson), which in 2014 made the Brit List of hottest unproduced UK screenplays. But on top of the script and the director, this film delivers a dynamite British cast. While StudioCanal has European rights, Amazon Studios oversees the US release.

Benedict Cumberbatch plays Wain, the eccentric man whose cat paintings presaged our obsession with crazy cat videos, anthropomorphized animals, and psychedelic colors. Wain became schizophrenic, possibly due to toxoplasmosis from cat feces. Claire Foy (The Crown) plays his wife Emily, who meets a tragic fate. The extremely accomplished Toby Jones (who played another iconic British artist, JMW Turner, in the play The Painter) also appears, as does Jamie Demetriou (the guy with the big teeth in Fleabag) and many more British dynamos.

The movie potentially promises to be a tour de force about brilliance, madness, love, and loss, as well as everything in between — and, of course, cats. Definitely can't forget the cats.

Voyeurs

Jerod Harris/Getty Images

Voyeurs speaks to a world where people are constantly looking out their windows to feel a connection with somebody else, if only by watching them live their lives. Justice Smith, the star of Detective Pikachu (as well as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and the colorful hip hop series The Get Down) plays Thomas, who moves with Pippa (Euphoria's Sydney Sweeney) into their dream apartment. Everything is perfect for these beautiful young lovers — at first, anyway.

Then they notice their windows look directly into the apartment across the way, where an attractive couple is living what seems to be a dramatic life they can't look away from — a relationship full of passion, both good and bad.

But as the relationship of the couple across the street grows increasingly volatile, Pippa and Thomas decide they have to do something. They try to intervene, anonymously of course. But unfortunately, no good deed goes unpunished and things quickly start to go very wrong. Written and directed by Michael Mohan, this may be the kind of thriller you can't take your eyes off.

The Burial

Amy Sussman/Getty Images

In November 2020, Jamie Foxx joined The Burial as producer and star. The project is still in development but given the talent involved, it has a great likelihood of going forward and being out within the next year. Maggie Betts is directing; her last film, Novitiate, won the Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Director at Sundance in 2017. The script is written by Pulitzer winner Doug Wright, based on a New Yorker article by Jonathan Harr. Put the parts together and The Burial has the potential of being an entertaining story about funeral homes and legal battles.

The story alone is amazing and weird: a bankrupt funeral home owner hires a flamboyant attorney to sue a rival over an agreement gone wrong. This could be fun, in a wacky and morbid way. One can only hope for a Six Feet Under meets Better Call Saul vibe, but given how secretive the process has been and how few details have been confirmed — plus the fact that it's listed as "In development" on IMDB – it could go a lot of different directions, any of which will undoubtedly be worth a watch.

Invasion

In post-production now, Invasion is about a father who goes on the run with his sons in an attempt to protect them from a threatening alien invasion. Along the way, they all have to fight for their lives, growing and discovering their own strengths in the process. Riz Ahmed (Rogue One) leads a cast including Rory Cochrane (who's come a long way since playing Slater in Dazed and Confused), and Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer, who is worth watching on a cereal commercial much less a high-profile Amazon family pursuit film involving aliens. The movie is directed by Michael Pearce, the up-and-coming British director of Beast.

The story promises to be frightening, or at least tense and thrilling. It was written by Pearce and Joe Barton, who wrote the amazing chase horror film The Ritual. If it's anything like that one, Invasion will have audiences locked in until the credits roll. Since it's in post-production, there's even a chance it will drop in late 2021.

All the Old Knives

Albert L. Ortega/Getty Images

At first glance, All the Old Knives seems like it could have a romantic air to it. Chris Pine and Thandie Newton play CIA operatives and former lovers who reunite at Carmel-by-the-Sea. Their conversation moves into the hijacking of Royal Jordanian 127, which led to the death of all onboard and is still a disgrace for the CIA even years later. As the flirtatious dinner goes on and the talk gets more real, it's soon revealed that this failed mission may have compromised a CIA agent. Eventually it becomes clear that one of them may not survive to the end of the meal.

Based on Olen Steinhauer's eponymous New York Times best selling novel, All the Old Knives features a cast that is fireworks. Let's not forget that another Steinhauer spy novel, 2009's The Tourist, was adapted into the 2010 film starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, although there may be some out there who want to forget it.

Still, the cast includes Pine and Newton, along with Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Two Popes) and Laurence Fishburne, who joined in November. Top it off with director Janus Metz, who directed the well-received Borg vs. McEnroe and Amazon's ZeroZeroZero, and we've got a can't-miss spy thriller.

Fred and Ginger

As the saying about Fred Astaire goes, "Sure he was great, but don't forget that Ginger Rogers did everything he did, backwards... and in high heels." The biopic Fred and Ginger dives into the lives of arguably the most famous dancing duo in American cinema, from their magnetic careers to exploring their little-known off-screen romance.

For a long time, Astaire got the bulk of credit as America's great screen dance impresario. But his greatest footwork was with Ginger Rogers, to the point that their names are rarely mentioned separately. Their on-screen chemistry was indelible and Fred and Ginger aims to explore why.

Jamie Bell, who began his career as the dancing protagonist of Billy Elliot, will play Fred. Margaret Qualley, perhaps best known as Pussycat, the hitchhiker who brings Cliff to the ranch in Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, will play Ginger. Qualley also practiced ballet for most of her young life, making it at 16 to the American Ballet Theatre's summer program. Though she quit ballet, she received an Emmy nod for her turn as Broadway star Ann Reinking in FX's Fosse/Verdon.

This project was only announced in December 2020 and is currently listed as "in development." 

Being the Ricardos

Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball. Javier Bardem as Desi Arnaz. Directed by Aaron Sorkin. This is Being the Ricardos. Seriously, what else do you need to know? 

The script is a compelling slice-of-life story that takes place over a one-week period during the filming of I Love Lucy. It starts with a table read of a script and ends in the production of the episode. During that week, Lucy and Desi hit some serious snags that may jeopardize their marriage, which would have a huge impact both on and off-screen. This might easily become one of the most anticipated films of 2022.

Sorkin, who's nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay with The Trial of the Chicago 7, wrote Being the Ricardos in addition to directing it. Joining Kidman and Bardem in the cast are J.K. Simmons as William Frawley, the actor who played Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy, Nina Arianda as Vivian Vance, who played Frawley's on-screen wife Ethel, Tony Hale as I Love Lucy showrunner Jess Oppenheimer and Alia Shawkat as writer Madelyn Pugh.

I Want You Back

When you get dumped from your happily-ever-after, the only solution is to find somebody else in the same boat and go from commiserating to hatching an insane plan to get your respective exes to leave their new partners and get back with you. That's a totally logical approach to the situation.

That's also the plot of I Want You Back, and this premise had all the makings of comedy gold. Especially with funny queen Jenny Slate and the inimitable Charlie Day playing the jilted, scheming lovers looking for redemption. There's also Scott Eastwood, Jami Gertz, Manny Jacinto, and Gina Rodriguez rounding out the cast, according to IMDB.

Director Jason Orley helmed two Pete Davidson works recently, both his film Big Time Adolescence and his stand-up special Alive from New York, so he obviously knows something about comedy. But most importantly, while the cast was announced in February 2021, the film has already been listed as filming on IMDB. Which means that there's a good chance we'll be seeing if Slate and Day reunite with their unrequited loves before 2021 is over (or early 2022 at the latest).

The sooner the better — given the challenges of the last year, everybody could use a good laugh.

Master

Arturo Holmes/Getty Images

Ghosts. College drama. A strong black female team from writer/director Mariama Diallo to producer and actress Regina Hall to leads Zoe Renee and Amber Gray...Master has so many things to look forward to.

First the plot: Two black women make their way onto the hallowed grounds of elite New England university Ancaster, guided by the black queer head of Belleville house. But there's a twist: this particular university was built on a former Salem witch hunt gallows hill and all sorts of supernatural stuff starts happening. So we have women of color navigating a world of privilege against the background of occult frights rising through the prestigious school grounds.

"From the moment we read Master and met Mariama we knew we needed to be part of bringing this spine-chilling story to life," said Amazon Studios Co-Head of Movies Julie Rapaport in the 2020 announcement of the addition of Renee and Gray.

Hall joined as producer back in 2019. She plays the queer black head of house who has to help Renee and Gray navigate racial tensions, stuffy prestigious halls, and occult threats. It may seem that as the first big talent attached, and playing a mentor or hero figure, Hall is in fact the real master of the project.

Amazon films you might have missed in 2021

There's a lot to look forward to for the rest of 2021 and just beyond. But Amazon Prime has already dropped several great films in 2021 that you should check out in the meantime.

Let's start with a movie that probably nobody missed but just in case: why haven't you watched Coming 2 America yet? The sequel to one of the most iconic movies of the 1980s brings back Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley and Louie Anderson while adding Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones, and Tracy Morgan.

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things is a teen redux of the time loop Groundhog Day concept, written by Lev Grossman and starring up-and-comers Kathryn Newton, Kyle Allen and Jermaine Harris. Allen and Harris play two teens who relive the same day, eventually leading them to create the map from which comes the title. It's that charming teen date movie even grown-ups will (maybe secretly) enjoy.

Then there's Bliss, starring Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek. Greg, played by Wilson, is a double loser, having recently gotten fired and divorced. Then he meets Isabel, played by Hayek, a street woman who believes that their messed-up world is a computer simulation. And Greg may be starting to buy in as well.

While you're waiting for the upcoming films on this list, check these three out. And if you've already seen them, might as well watch again.

Subscribers to Amazon Prime have access to thousands of movies for free with their subscriptions. If you’re looking for something to watch, here are the best movies to watch for free with Amazon Prime Video.

Update, 11/19/21: We’ve reviewed our recommendations and are confident these are still the best movies you can watch on Amazon Prime Video.

Knives Out

Filmmaker Rian Johnson puts together an all-star cast for the old-fashioned murder mystery Knives Out. A wealthy mystery novelist (played by Christopher Plummer) is killed under mysterious circumstances, and everyone in his family (plus his longtime caretaker) is a suspect.

Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, and Toni Collette are among the actors playing the family members, with Ana de Armas as the caretaker and Daniel Craig as renowned detective Benoit Blanc. In the tradition of Agatha Christie, Knives Out is full of surprises and reveals, plus an added layer of sharp social commentary and a wry sense of humor.

Heathers

Cult classic Heathers is one of the best comedies on Amazon Prime. This dark satire takes on the teen movies of its era (the 1980s), bringing a violent edge to the story of an upstanding young woman falling in love with a rebellious bad boy. Veronica (Winona Ryder) and J.D. (Christian Slater) take their crusade against the vapid popular students at their high school to deadly extremes, while the movie retains a sense of the absurd. The filmmakers mix whip-smart dialogue with cutting commentary on conformity.

Inception

Christopher Nolan’s obsession with intricate plotting meets the perfect high concept in Inception. This thriller involves a “heist” of ideas literally within the world of dreams as trained operatives infiltrate the subconscious mind of a corporate executive.

The twisty plot is matched by Nolan’s elaborate, mind-bending visuals, which he deploys in some truly astonishing action set pieces. Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, and Tom Hardy lead a strong cast who bring some emotional depth to Nolan’s heady concepts.

His Girl Friday

Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell star as bickering newspaper reporters (and ex-spouses) in Howard Hawks’ classic comedy His Girl Friday. Hawks swaps the gender of one of the main characters of the popular play The Front Page, turning the story into a comedy about remarriage as well as a farce. The rapid-fire dialogue is filled with clever put-downs and wordplay, and Grant and Russell continually one-up each other as their characters pursue the biggest story of their careers (and also fall in love again).

Watch on Amazon

Inside Llewyn Davis

One of the Coen brothers’ best films, Inside Llewyn Davis, stars Oscar Isaac as the title character, a struggling folk singer in 1960s New York City. Perpetually living in the shadow of his more successful peers, Llewyn drifts from one friend’s couch to another’s, trying to scrounge together money from occasional gigs. The movie has a bittersweet, melancholy tone, with Llewyn serving as a stand-in for anyone who’s faced the prospect of giving up on their dreams.

Watch on Amazon

Love & Friendship

One of Amazon’s best original movies, Love & Friendship is a delightful Jane Austen adaptation from filmmaker Whit Stillman. Based on Austen’s early novel Lady Susan, the movie stars Kate Beckinsale as a ruthless, sharp-tongued social climber with witty rejoinders for everyone she meets. Love & Friendship adds a nasty edge to Austen’s typical romantic narrative while still satisfyingly pairing off all the main characters in suitable marriages.

Midsommar

Ari Aster’s Midsommar delivers unspeakable horrors in broad daylight as its main characters visit a remote Swedish village during a traditional summer festival. There’s far more going on than dancing and creating flower crowns, though, as these American grad students learn the hard way. Florence Pugh plays a young woman in the midst of grieving who discovers a well of internal strength as she participates in the village’s arcane rituals. In horror, she finds her identity and her power.

To Catch a Thief

Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief is more lighthearted than many of the master of suspense’s thrillers, but it’s no less engrossing. Cary Grant plays an expert jewel thief whose retirement is threatened by an impostor robbing wealthy tourists on the French Riviera.

Determined to clear his name, the burglar, known as “the Cat,” decides to catch the real thief. Along the way, he falls in love with a wealthy heiress played by Grace Kelly. It’s a stylish caper that benefits from the stars’ playful chemistry and Hitchcock’s mastery of the camera.

Night of the Living Dead

The zombie genre wouldn’t even exist without George A. Romero’s landmark 1968 horror movie Night of the Living Dead. Romero pioneered most of the key elements of zombie movies with his creepy, low-budget film about the dead rising from the grave, hungry for human flesh.

Taking place mostly within an abandoned house where characters hide from the growing undead hordes, Night of the Living Dead creates indelible scares on minimal resources. It’s one of the most influential movies of all time (in any genre).

While Netflix draws so much awards attention each year because of its robust slate of movies from top-tier directors, it was Amazon Prime Video that actually became the first streaming platform to ever win an Oscar for a narrative feature. Back at the 2017 ceremony, Amazon won three Academy Awards — two for “Manchester by the Sea” (Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay) and one for the international feature “The Salesman.” (Netflix won its first Oscar that year for the documentary short “White Helmets.”)

Netflix has dominated the conversation in the years since — last year, the service received 24 Oscar nominations, the most for any studio — but Amazon is back again this season with a major Best Picture contender in “One Night in Miami” and several other potential nominees.

Ahead, the new movies on Amazon Prime Video in January that are serious awards contenders.

January 2021

“One Night In Miami” (January 15)

The feature directorial debut from Oscar-winning actress Regina King, “One Night in Miami” is the fictional account of a real-life evening in February 1964 when Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.), Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge), and Cassius Clay (Eli Goree) celebrated Clay’s heavyweight championship victory. Over the course of the evening, the four icons of the civil rights movement discuss the Black experience in America and their role in affecting progressive change. “One Night In Miami” is expected to compete in a number of major Oscars categories, including Best Picture, Best Director for King, and Best Supporting Actor for Odom. 

2020

“I’m Your Woman” (December 11)

Emmy-winning actress Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) continues her successful run at Amazon Prime Video with “I’m Your Woman,” a throwback drama from co-writer and director Julia Hart. The film, a period piece set in the 1970s, stars Brosnahan as a woman on the run and has generated awards buzz for its costumes and production design.

“Sound of Metal” (December 4)

Riz Ahmed plays a heavy metal drummer who begins to lose his hearing in this Darius Marder drama that has Ahmed and co-star Paul Raci in the thick of the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor races, respectively.

“Small Axe” (November 20)

Oscar-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen’s five-film anthology is not eligible at the 2021 Oscars, but the collection of features — from the critically acclaimed “Lovers Rock” to the courtroom drama “Mangrove” — is expected to compete at the Golden Globes and Emmy Awards in major categories thanks to its top-flight production pedigree.

“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” (October 23)

Fourteen years after satirizing America during the George W. Bush presidency, Sacha Baron Cohen returned to his most recognizable character for “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.” The sequel, which was shot in secret and only officially announced shortly before its Amazon debut, once again captured the zeitgeist and launched the career of actress Maria Bakalova. The newcomer, who plays Cohen’s on-screen daughter in the “Borat” sequel, is a heavy favorite to land a Best Supporting Actress nomination.

“Time” (October 16)

Directed by Garrett Bradley, the critically acclaimed documentary “Time” has generated significant awards heat since its debut at the Sundance Film Festival last year and could potentially make history for Bradley were it to win at the 2021 Oscars.

“All In: The Fight for Democracy” (September 9)

Co-directed by two-time Oscar nominee Liz Garbus (“What Happened, Miss Simone?,” “The Farm: Angola USA”) and Lisa Cortes, “All In” explores the deep history of voter suppression in America and prominently features an interview with Georgia political activist and progressive leader Stacey Abrams.
