Amazon has a host of great new originals that will be a perfect way to warm your winter, and some great classics to make your Valentine's Day complete. Here are some of the big premieres, along with the full list of debuts below. Happy streaming!
Bliss - Feb. 5th
Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek star in this sci-fi drama from director Mike Cahill ("Another Earth," "I Origins"). Taking the concept of "The Matrix" down to earth, recently divorced Greg (Wilson) finds himself down and out until he meets a mysterious lady (Hayek) who convinces him that the world we know is just a computer simulation.
The Map of Tiny Perfect Things - Feb. 12th
Arriving just in time for Valentine's Day is another riff on the "Groundhog Day" concept. This time, two love-struck teens (Kyle Allen and Kathryn Newton) find themselves trapped in a time-loop and have to work their way out. This might feel like a retread of last year's wonderful "Palm Springs." Or maybe this has been the plan all along, and we're just trapped in an endless loop of watching movies about people stuck in a loop.
Pre-pandemic hit "Sonic the Hedgehog'' will race onto Amazon on the 18th, followed by the Joel Kinnaman thriller "The Informer'' on the 26th. Nostalgic classics to look for throughout the month include the Eddie Murphy hit "Coming to America," which comes to Amazon just in time for you to prep for the sequel next month. Also look for Baz Lurhmann's period-set jukebox musical "Moulin Rouge," Richard Linklater's high school stoner comedy "Dazed and Confused," Christopher Nolan's magic thriller "The Prestige," and the George Clooney/Ryan Gosling political drama "The Ides of March'' -- all now streaming. Below is the full list of debuts.
