Make movie night your best yet with these top new releases…

Amazon Prime subscribers, we’re here to save you from your infinite browsing habit. With September quickly approaching comes a whole new batch of titles making their way to Prime Video. We’ve rounded up some of the best TV shows and movies of every kind — from documentaries to fantasy and horror — coming to this streaming service next month.

The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power

Big news for the “LOTR” universe. Prime Video brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-Earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil on Middle-Earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains and the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor and the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.

This powerful documentary follows everyday people who find themselves amid a global tragedy when two Boeing 737 Max planes crashed only five months apart in 2018 and 2019.

Goodnight Mommy

When twin brothers (Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti) arrive at their mother’s (Naomi Watts) country home to discover her face covered in bandages – the result, she explains, of recent cosmetic surgery – they immediately sense that something doesn’t add up. She sets strange new house rules, smokes in her bathroom, and secretly rips up a drawing they gave her –things their loving mother would never do. As her behaviour grows increasingly bizarre and erratic, a horrifying thought takes root in the boys’ minds: The sinking suspicion that the woman beneath the gauze, who’s making their food and sleeping in the next room, isn’t their mother at all.

The Grand Tour

In their first post-pandemic road trip, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May head for the icy wastes of the Scandinavian Arctic Circle. At the wheel of their three favourite rally cars, the boys embark on a catastrophe-filled adventure that takes in Cold War sub-bases, frozen lake racetracks, crashes and ski resort chaos as they drag their homemade houses from the coast of Norway to the Russian Border. This is a show about adventure, excitement and friendship – as long as you accept that the people you call friends are also the ones you find extremely annoying. So, follow these three on their global adventure.
