There’s something for everyone on Prime Video. If you’re into fantasy, action, and adventure, then The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is absolutely for you. With the first season wrapped and a second installment on the way, now’s the perfect time to binge through this series.

Then there’s Regina King’s lauded, Oscar-nominated feature film directorial debut One Night in Miami… which relays a fictional account of the night Sam Cooke, Jim Brown, Malcolm X, and Muhammad Ali came together, opening up about their roles in the Civil Rights movement, their hopes, fears, and more. Then again, you also can’t go wrong with the romantic comedy The Big Sick, starring Kumail Nanjiani (as himself, basically), Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, and Ray Romano.

Whatever you’re interested in, Amazon Prime Video has you covered. Before the release of Somebody That I Used to Know, enjoy a 30-day free trial and check out some of the original TV shows and movies available to stream on Prime Video.


To understand what Swarm, out March 17, is all about, think Beyoncé’s beehive turned horror. “Murder. Sex. Music. This is not a work of fiction,” the official Prime Video description reads. In essence, Swarm follows Dre (Dominique Fishback), a young woman from Houston whose love for her favorite pop icon Ni’Jah (Nirine S. Brown) is taken from normal to pure obsession. The show was created by Donald Glover and even has former First Daughter Malia Obama as one of the writers.
