What’s leaving Amazon Prime Video UK in June / July 2022?
James R | On 06, Jul 2022
As the UK continues to navigate its way through the Covid-19 pandemic, Amazon Prime Video’s sizeable library of movies and TV shows is a useful resource for keeping entertained indoors. But before you start bingeing through the line-up, don’t miss out on catching up with some old and new gems before their rights expire.
This is your last chance to stream the following with Amazon Prime UK:
Gladiator – 21st June
Ridley Scott’s historical epic, starring Russell Crowe, is as good now as it was over 15 years ago.
Sing – 21st June
This musical comedy is a charming animation packed with overwhelming positivity.
The Wolf of Wall Street – 21st June
Leonardo DiCaprio is outrageously good in this terrifying, obscene joy of a movie.
About Time – 23rd June
Richard Curtis’ deceptively serious comedy is an honest, moving piece about family.
Scott Pilgrim vs the World – 23rd June
Mature, childish and thrillingly inventive, Scott Pilgrim is awesome, surprising no one.
Shaun of the Dead – 24th June
“You’ve got red on you…”
Hot Fuzz – 25th June
Pegg, Frost and Wright’s endlessly quotable cop flick is one of the best British comedies of the last decade.
Schindler’s List – 26th June
Spielberg’s masterpiece is beautifully made, disturbing and vital cinema.
Back to the Future – 27th June
Nimbly scripted and endlessly entertaining, Back to the Future is, simply, a perfect film. Parts 2 and 3 also depart on the same day.
Bend It Like Beckham – 27th June
Gurinder Chadha’s coming-of-age comedy about a girl who rebels against her traditional family to join a football team is a modern classic, with Parminder Nagra leading an excellent young cast that includes Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Keira Knightley.
A United Kingdom – 27th June
A powerful story of romance and race, A United Kingdom is a crowd-pleaser that deserves the biggest crowd possible.
Ex Machina – 28th June
Alex Garland’s smart sci-fi thriller raises pertinent issues of gender and control.
The Place Beyond the Pines – 28th June
Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper are excellent in this quiet, thoughtful and stunning epic of fathers and sons.

This star-studded adaptation of the classic musical will make you cry.
Contagion – 29th June
Steven Soderbergh’s medical thriller is a gripping but harrowing watch.

Layer Cake – 1st July
If you were ever in doubt about Daniel Craig playing James Bond, this Brit gangster flick was proof that he would be a perfect fit.
Bridesmaids – 1st July
Intelligent, amusing and incredibly performed, Bridesmaids is simply unbeatable.
Matilda – 1st July
Danny DeVito’s Dahl adaptation of Roald Dahl’s kids’ classic crackles with the same electricity as the book.

Lose your in Curtis Hanson’s thoughtful exploration of a city and a subculture.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – 16th July
Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet are brilliant in this sci-fi romance about a guy who decides to get his ex-girlfriend erased from his memory – only to change his mind and fight against it. The only couple better suited for one another? Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman, whose mind-bending visuals and heartbreaking script belong together.
Charlie Wilson’s War – 17th July
Written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and directed by Mike Nichols (The Graduate), Charlie Wilson’s War is a political comedy teeming with refreshing humour to confront a nigh forgotten political gamble taken amidst the cold war. Tom Hanks and Philip Seymour Hoffman star.
