Amazon Prime Announces Over 80 New Movies/TV Shows For December


Hard as it is to believe with everything going on right now, but Christmas is only about five weeks away, and the streaming market is already looking crowded. Although Netflix can probably expect to continue their dominance over subscribers through the end of 2020, Amazon Prime are releasing some notable titles for the last month of the year, including original films like I’m Your Woman and new episodes of The Expanse.

In terms of the former, it stars Rachel Brosnahan of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel in a picture about a woman who has to go on the run after her husband gets into trouble with his business partner. We’ll also be seeing the much-anticipated Sound of Metal, which features Riz Ahmed as a heavy metal drummer who develops hearing loss. This one will receive a limited theatrical release before heading to Amazon on December 4th. And elsewhere, viewers can expect Sundance hit Sylvie’s Love with Tessa Thompson, which will premiere on Christmas Day.

True Lies

On the series front, meanwhile, Amazon have teen survival drama The Wilds, wherein a group of teenage girls have to survive on a deserted island. The well regarded sci-fi program The Expanse kicks off its fifth season as well with three brand new instalments on December 16th, before going to a weekly release schedule, while other highlights include a Grand Tour entry, New Year’s comedy special Yearly Departed, and family entertainment in fresh entries of Clifford the Big Red Dog.

As usual, Amazon has bulked out its licensed movie and television library ahead of the festive period, too, including everything from multiple James Bond classics such as Dr. No and Goldeneye to The King’s Speech, and various Christmas-themed content. Furthermore, it appears that the platform is also picking up a number of properties from other networks and cable.

Here, then, is everything coming to Amazon Prime in December:

A pretty great list, then, which builds on the similarly solid amount of new material that Amazon Prime made available in November. The big challenge, however, will be to continue to improve the brand’s reputation for its own programming, as well as being a window for films such as The Craft: Legacy that might otherwise have gone to theaters.
