Staff Reporter | On 27, Oct 2018
Amazon is full steam ahead this November, as it continues to wheel out its big hitters, starting in style with the new thriller Homecoming, based on the hit podcast of the same name. It’s joined by the long-awaited Season 2 of Patriot, a new Coldplay documentary, and two of its most popular exclusive acquisitions: Vikings, now on the concluding half of Season 5, and Outlander, entering its fourth.
Amazon’s original movie arm also pays off here, as the coming month brings us Lynne Ramsay’s remarkable You Were Never Really Here, as well as modern gems Journeyman, The Revenant, and Before Sunrise.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video in November 2018:

Homecoming: Season 1 – 2nd November
Heidi Bergman (Julia Roberts) is a caseworker at Homecoming, a Geist Group facility helping soldiers transition to civilian life. Years later she has started a new life, living with her mother and working as a waitress, when a Department of Defence auditor questions why she left the Homecoming facility and Heidi realises the truth may be a different story than the one she has been telling herself.
You Were Never Really Here – 2nd November
When a teenage girl goes missing, a jaded, brutal enforcer attempts a rescue mission, only to uncover corruption and abuse of power along his way. With Joaquin Phoenix on gruff, disturbing form, and Lynne Ramsay presenting his ensuing rampage of violence with a darkly blunt edge, this is, in the words of our reviewer, “one of the most hellacious anti-genre genre flicks in quite some time”.
Outlander: Season 4, Episode 1 – 5th November
Season 4 of Outlander continues the story of time-traveling 20th century doctor, Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe), and her 18th century Highlander husband, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), as they try to make a home for themselves in colonial America. We find the Frasers in North Carolina at yet another turning point in history – the cusp of the American Revolution.
Patriot: Season 2 – 9th November
John must make a choice at the train platform – be free from his obligations and adversaries by letting Agathe take the money or pursue her, at great risk to himself, in an effort to protect his brother, father, and country. Meanwhile, his father presents a perilous way out of it all: find and assassinate Cantar Walley in Paris.
Beat: Season 1 – 9th November
Amazon’s German original thriller tells the story of Robert Schlag, called Beat, a 28 year old Berlin club promoter who is addicted to Berlin’s nightlife including drugs and sex (with men and women). Beat works for Berlin’s most known techno club Sonar, which is owned by his best friend Paul. Given Beat’s connections with the club scene he gets into the focus of the European Security Intelligence (ESI) as they need help while investigating the clubs. The main suspect is Philipp Vossberg, the new co-owner of the Sonar. He is a smart and handsome but ruthless guy who sells human organs and uses the club to cover his dirty deals. Emilia (working for the ESI) partners with Beat on his dangerous journey through organ trafficking and arms trades, all in front of the backdrop of Berlin’s party scene.
Startup: Season 3 – 9th November
After a year of extraordinary growth, ArakNet’s unregulated network becomes the target of NSA Agent Rebecca Stroud (Mira Sorvino) who vows to infiltrate it at any cost. The arrival of this new adversary, coupled with the mysterious return of Izzy from her ill-fated journey to Cuba, creates an extraordinary pressure cooker and ultimately turns our heroes against one another. A desperate banker, a Haitian-American gang lord, and a Cuban-American hacker are forced to work together to unwittingly create their version of the American dream – organised crime 2.0.
Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams – 16th November
Using extensive unseen archive, behind-the-scenes and live footage, the film sees the band reflect upon their two decades together. It was filmed during Coldplay’s record-breaking A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, which was certified as the third biggest tour of all time, playing to more than 5.5 million fans across the world.
The Gymkhana Files: Season 1 – 16th November

Mirzapur: Season 1 – 16th November
Set in the heartland of India, the series revolves around drugs, guns and the politics of power in a land where might is right.

The Revenant – Date TBC
Proof that Leonardo DiCaprio will go to any extreme for an award, Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s intense survival epic set on the fur-trading frontier of the 1820s sees DiCaprio’s trapper chased through the woods, battered by blizzards and mauled by a bear.
Before Sunrise – 25th November
Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy star in Richard Linklater’s swooningly believable tale of two young strangers who meet on a train in Europe and decide to spend the night in Vienna.
Vikings: Season 5, Part 2 – 29th November
Michael Hirst’s historical drama returns to continue the tale of the raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages. Season 5 saw Katheryn Winnick, Gustaf Skarsgård, Alexander Ludwig and Alex Høgh Andersen joined by Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the dangerous Bishop Heahmund, and, following the events of the mid-season finale, the show will return this November as it continues the battle between Ivar (Andersen) and Lagertha (Winnick), and paves the way for a new generation of stories – not to mention an already-commissioned sixth season. New episodes will arrive weekly, within 24 hours of their US broadcast.
