Picard and Carnival Row both get their final seasons this month while the creepy new thriller series The Consultant makes its debut on the streaming service. New romantic comedy Somebody I Used To Know is also streaming this February, as is The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the third instalment of the horror movie franchise.
Check out this month’s highlights below and then keep scrolling to take a look at some of the other titles landing on Amazon Prime Video UK this February.
Please note: This list is correct at the time of writing but as Amazon tends to drop titles onto their service without warning, you can expect plenty more movies and shows to land on Prime over the coming weeks.
Toppen: Season 1
We don’t know much about this Swedish political comedy but if you’re a fan of such shows as Veep and The Thick of It, you might want to give this new series a try.
On The Line (2022)
Mel Gibson stars in this recent thriller as a seasoned radio host named Elvis who takes a disturbing call from an unknown caller who is threatening to kill the showman’s family. To save his loved ones, Elvis has to keep the caller on the line and discover his identity. This movie hasn’t had many positive reviews so this might be one Gibson flick that you decide to hang up on.
Somebody I Used To Know (2023)
Premiering just in time for Valentine’s Day is this new rom-com written and directed by Dave Franco. Alison Brie stars as Ally, a workaholic TV producer who returns to her home town and reunites with Sean (Jay Ellis), her first love and ex-partner. Will they get back together? As Sean is engaged to somebody else, a woman that reminds Ally of the person she used to be, we can’t quite say for sure. All will be revealed when the movie lands on Prime on this date.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021)
This third in the series of horror movies that are based on the case files of Ed and Lorraine Warren is decent enough but after a disturbing opening sequence that might genuinely scare you, the tension begins to fade and the movie suffers as a consequence. This time around, the famed paranormal investigators take on the case of a murder suspect who is using demonic possession as his defence. Is he guilty or did the devil make him do it? Check out our Review and Ending Explained articles to learn more about the movie.
Carnival Row: Season 2
Steampunk fantasy series Carnival Row is back for its belated second (and final) season. Orlando Bloom returns as Inspector Rycroft “Philo” Philostrate, the half-human/half-fae who is investigating the murder of the Fae folk, and Cara Delevingne reprises her role as Vignette Stonemoss, the faerie plotting revenge against humanity with the aid of a group of faes called the Black Raven.
Star Trek Picard: Season 3
It’s the final set of episodes for Picard and his crew so here’s hoping they get the send-off they deserve. This time around, they answer a distress call from Beverly Crusher and find themselves being hunted down by a mysterious new enemy. New episodes will beam down weekly!
The second Mel Gibson movie to premiere on Prime this month sees the Lethal Weapon actor take on the role of a gangster who teams up with a bank-robbing career criminal (Josh Duhamel) named Robert after the crook escapes from prison. This is based on the true story of Gilbert Galvan Jr., aka The Flying Bandit, who robbed nearly 50 banks in Canada during the 1980s over a 3-year period.
Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021)
Angelina Jolie stars in this engaging survival thriller as Hannah Faber, a daredevil smoke jumper, who crosses paths with a teenage murder witness who is on the run from the assassins who killed his father. Faber uses her survival skills to protect the boy from both the killers and a fire that is raging through the forest they are travelling through.
Die Hart: the Movie (2023)
Die Hart, the comedy series starring Kevin Hart as a fictionalized version of himself, debuted in 2020, and if you enjoyed that show, you might be interested in the movie. Unfortunately, there is nothing new to see here. It’s a condensed version of the 10-episode show which centred on Hart’s attempts to be taken seriously as an action movie star. As such, this might not be top of your wish-list if you are familiar with the series but if you somehow bypassed it on its initial release (and if you’re a fan of Hart), you might want to give this one a go.
The Consultant: Season 1
Christoph Waltz headlines this new series as the consultant of the title, a rather creepy individual named Regus Patoff, who has been hired to improve the workforce of an App-based gaming company. Judging by the trailer for this new comedy-thriller, his methods are both bizarre and sinister, so it’s clear the employees are in for a hard time as they try to cope with Patoff’s weird demands.
Harlem: Season 2
Clarkson’s Farm: Season 2
