What’s leaving Amazon Prime Video UK in March / April 2022?
James R | On 26, Mar 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:
The LEGO Batman Movie – 27th March
Will Arnett is your new favourite Batman in this inspired superhero comedy.
Wonder Woman – 27th March
Optimistic, determined and rooted in hopeful strength, Wonder Woman is the superhero movie we need.
Kong: Skull Island – 29th March
This vibrant, violent King Kong reboot mixes the thrill of monsters and the fun of world-building in one hairy package.
Dunkirk – 31st March
This raw, stripped-down war film is a harrowing elegy to British lives lost – and a powerful portrayal of despair in the face of hope.
Love Actually – 1st April
For all its cliches, it’s hard to resist Richard Curtis going full Richard Curtis in this rambling, uneven seasonal anthology. Shrewdly commercial yet annoyingly charming, the cast alone make it worth watching, from Emma Thompson’s bittersweet romance to Bill Nighy’s snorting pop star, while Rowan Atkinson’s cameo as a shop assistant walks away with the whole thing.
Reservoir Dogs – 1st April
“Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right…”
Dune (1984) – 1st April
Don’t miss your chance to catch David Lynch’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal sci-fi novel.
Ammonite – 1st April
Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan are excellent in Francis Lee’s restrained romantic drama about palaeontologist Mary Anning.
Shaun the Sheep: The Movie – 2nd April
Shaun the Sheep’s feature-length outing is a perfectly contained piece of entertainment that mines each frame for every possible laugh.
End of Watch – 3rd April
Not a good cop or bad cop movie. Just a really, really good cop movie.
Requiem for a Dream – 3rd April
Darren Aronofsky’s searing 2000 drama is a graphic depiction of the consequences of drug addiction.
Argo – 3rd April
An espionage blockbuster that works as historical drama, political thriller and a love letter to cinema.
In the Loop – 4th April
A quick-fire assault on your funny bone, In the Loop is a stroke of British genius. Profane, profound and permanently relevant.
Black Swan – 4th April
Natalie Portman is flawless in Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller about a ballet dancer who finds herself slipping into madness when she gets the chance to play the lead role in a production of Swan Lake.
Con Air – 6th April
“Put the bunny back in the box.”
Source Code – 6th April
Duncan Jones’ Hitchcockian caper matches confident mainstream entertainment with indie sci-fi smarts.
Showgirls – 6th April
Elizabeth Berkley plays a Las Vegas dancer clawing her way to the top in Paul Verhoeven’s gloriously trashy cult favourite.
Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit – 7th April
Can your favourite stop-motion duo work as a feature-length film? By heck, they can: Aardman’s 85-minute adventure is full of visual slapstick, verbal wit and endless puns, not to mention Ralph Fiennes in his first truly comedic role – and, of course, a giant monster rabbit. It’s when you stop noticing the action set pieces are made out of clay that you realise just how superb it is.
The Wrestler – 7th April
A return to form for Rourke and Aronofsky, The Wrestler is a beautifully crafted film.
Dead Poets Society – 8th April
O Captain, my Captain!
Wild Mountain Thyme – 8th April
A talented cast can’t overcome twee stereotypes in this bizarrely artificial romantic drama.
Face/Off – 9th April
Nic Cage and John Travolta swap faces in John Woo’s hugely entertaining sci-fi actioner.
Room – 10th April
As harrowing as it is heartwarming, Room is a remarkable tale of parental love and childlike wonder.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy – 10th April
This impeccable adaptation of John le Carre’s spy thriller is an atmospheric puzzle of betrayal, distrust and decline.
Joker – 11th April
Joaquin Phoenix delivers a chillingly intense turn in this dark portrait of the comic book villain.
The Grand Budapest Hotel – 11th April
Ralph Fiennes is hilarious in Wes Anderson’s clockwork dainty that ticks along with a polite smile.
The Heat – 12th April
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy have entertaining chemistry in this fun odd couple comedy.
71 – 16th April
A thrilling, shocking sprint through history that distills war into the simple urge to survive.
Columbus – 18th April
Kogonada’s must-see debut feature will linger in your memory long after watching.
