Coming to Amazon Prime Video in January 2019

In January, Amazon offers some of the most acclaimed films of 2018 for Prime subscribers, from the powerful drama Leave No Trace with Ben Foster as a disillusioned war veteran and single father raising his daughter off the grid to Eighth Grade, a sympathetic comic drama about an introverted, awkward girl in her disastrous final week before high school. Also coming in January is Beautiful Boy with Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet, Michael Moore’s documentary Fahrenheit 11/9, and animated comedy Sherlock Gnomes for kids.

Amazon debuts the new original series Informer, a thriller coproduced with the BBC, and Four More Shots Please! from India, plus new seasons of the Prime Original series The Grand Tour and The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle and the BBC mystery series Endeavour. Older films arriving in January include The Debt with Helen Mirren and Jessica Chastain, Terry Gilliam’s cult classic Brazil, and the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder.
