It’s a new month, and that means new content coming to Amazon Prime Video. Here, we break down everything coming to the streaming service.
The month of February is traditionally all about two things, Black History Month and Valentine’s Day. With that in mind, Amazon Prime Video will be adding two collections to celebrate both occasions. Additionally, they’ve got some intriguing films and series being added, headlined by Bliss starring Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek.
For the full breakdown of what is being added to Amazon Prime Video, see below:
Black History Month
Starting February 1st, our Amplify Black Voices page will feature a curated collection of titles to honor Black History Month. We will share more in the coming days, but the collection will rotate themes each week, and will feature titles that celebrate the voices of Black actors, producers, writers, and filmmakers.
Whether celebrating Galentine’s or Valentine’s, Prime Video has put together a list of titles for the perfect night in. Highlights from the collection includes Sylvie’s Love (2020), a love story set in 1950’s Harlem starring Tessa Thompson; Chemical Hearts (2020), a YA romance starring Lili Reinhart and Austin Abrams; What Men Want (2019), the gender-swapped remake of 2000’s “What Women Want” starring Taraji P. Henson; Life in a Year (2020), starring Jaden Smith and Cara Delevinge as a young couple facing insurmountable odds; and more.
