Coming to Amazon Prime in May 2018

Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying, an Amazon Studios drama starring Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne, and Beatriz at Dinner, a savage satire from director Miguel Arteta and screenwriter Mike White with Salma Hayek and John Lithgow, highlight the new arrivals available to Amazon Prime members on Prime Video.

Amazon also presents the Australian mini-series Picnic at Hanging Rock, a new take on the real-life Australian mystery starring Natalie Dormer, and launches the original immigrant drama Diablo Guardian with Mexican star Paulina Gaitain and a revival of the animated kids show Rocky & Bullwinkle in May.

Streaming TV includes the new Starz miniseries Howards End with Hayley Atwell and Matthew Macfadyen and the final season Orphan Black, the BBC American original featuring an Emmy-winning performance by Tatiana Maslany, and a big collection of BBC limited series and miniseries, including the original The Office with creator Ricky Gervais, the 1981 miniseries version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and adaptations of Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and Henry Fielding.

Older films cycling through the library include the epic fantasy The Golden Compass, Wonder Boys with Michael Douglas and Robert Downey Jr., self-aware big screen comedy The Brady Bunch Movie, sports romance Bull Durham, David Lynch’s The Elephant Man, Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, Canadian curling comedy Men with Brooms, and the star-studded 1974 Murder on the Orient Express. If Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky and four sequels aren’t enough to satisfy your boxing movie needs, there’s Warrior with Tom Hardy.
