It’s 2021 in just a couple of weeks, so now’s the time for out with the old and in with the new. And in streaming terms, that means get ready for a load of fresh titles to celebrate the New Year in style.

We’ve already covered what’s coming to Netflix, Disney Plus and Hulu in January, so let’s take a look at everything that’s on the way on Amazon Prime Video next month, too. As you’d expect, New Year’s Day is the biggest drop of the month when it comes to fresh releases, but a few notable movies and TV shows are scattered throughout the remaining days as well.

In total, there are over 70 titles coming to Prime on the 1st, including countless classics of all shapes and sizes for subscribers to enjoy. In the mood for some genuine cinematic masterpieces? Then check out Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove, Clint Eastwood vehicle Escape from Alcatraz and the supreme magnificence that is John Travolta and Nicolas Cage trying to out-ham each other in Face/Off. 

Fancy some sci-fi? Then stick on Star Trek Beyond, found footage alien invasion movie Cloverfield or M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs. There are also some great horror-comedies – like Arachnophobia and Vampire in Brooklyn – to choose from, too. And for dramas, don’t miss Johnny Depp in Donnie Brasco, Robert Downey Jr. in Chaplin and Jim Carrey in The Truman Show. 

As for TV content going up on New Year’s Day, the highlight has to be all eight seasons of Dexter. Why not binge the show once again ahead of Showtime reviving the serial killer series later in 2021? And when it comes to what’s due over the rest of the month, there are a bunch of Amazon Originals including Regina King’s directorial debut One Night in Miami (January 15th) and Anna Paquin comedy-drama series Flack (January 22nd).
