What’s leaving Amazon Prime Video UK in September / October 2020?
James R | On 20, Sep 2020
With people working from home during the coronavirus outbreak or gradually finding the way to return to life outdoors, Amazon Prime Video’s sizeable library of movies and TV shows is a useful resource for keeping entertained in doors. But before you start bingeing through the line-up, don’t miss out on catching up with some modern gems before their rights expire.
This is your last chance to stream the following with Amazon Prime UK:
El Mariachi – 23rd September
Robert Rodriguez made his Western-tinged debut with no more than a fistful of dollars and the result has become a legendary example for film students everywhere. A small scale taster for the outrageous action to come later in his career, this is proof that all you need to entertain an audience is a guitar case, $7,000 and a whole heap of ambition.
The Town – 23rd September
Accomplished and riveting, Ben Affleck’s crime drama isn’t as hot as Heat, but it’s a scorcher.
Untouchable – 24th September
Omar Sy stars in this French comedy about a man from the projects who finds himself caring for a quadriplegic Parisian millionaire (Francois Cluzet). From sex and drugs to their opposing tastes in music, this odd-couple bromance may follow a familiar formula, but it’s superbly done, tackling serious subjects with sincere humour. The result manages to be hilarious, thought-provoking and heart-warming in equal measure.
The Interview – 25th September
This likeable comedy stars James Franco and Seth Rogen as two journalists who are given an audience with Kim Jong-un, only to be approached by the CIA to assassinate him – a subject that North Korea took against so strongly, it effectively led to a cyber attack on Sony.
Identity – 25th September
John Cusack and Ray Liotta star in this underrated psychological thriller that sees strangers gather together at a motel – only for people to start getting bumped off.
The Hunger Games – 30th September
Don’t miss your chance to binge on the full box set of the young adult franchise, which sees Jennifer Lawrence on excellent form as Katnis Everdeen, the unwitting leader of a rebellion in a dystopia that forces young people to combat each other once a year.
The Falling – 30th September
This funny, shocking paranormal coming-of-age musical is entrancing cinema.
The Truman Show – 30th September
Jim Carrey is on career-best form in this witty, poignant satire on reality TV, as one man discovers he’s the star of a series all about his life.
Meek’s Cutoff – 30th September
Kelly Reichardt reunites with Michelle Williams for this Western set in 1845, with a wagon team of three families hiring mountain man Stephen Meek (Bruce Greenwood) to guide them over the Cascade Mountains. Claiming to know a short cut, Meek leads the group on an unmarked path across the high plain desert…
Star Trek (2009) – 1st October
This fast, fun reboot for the USS Enterprise is a treat for fans and newcomers alike.
Revolutionary Road – 2nd October
A young couple living in a Connecticut suburb during the mid-1950s struggle to come to terms with their personal problems while trying to raise their two children.
Happy as Lazzaro – 1st October
Alice Rohrwacher’s fantastical realist drama resonates with centuries of Italian working class history.
Skate Kitchen – 1st October
This sincere, stunningly shot coming-of-age movie has timeless written all over it.
The Prince of Egypt – 2nd October
This bold biblical adaptation of the story of Moses is DreamWorks’ first animated movie, but deserves to be remembered for more than just that.

Gerard Butler returns for the best in the “Has Fallen” franchise, as authorities take Secret Service agent Mike Banning into custody for the failed assassination attempt of US President Allan Trumbull, leaving him trying to prove his innocence and find the real threat.
The Wolf of Wall Street – 3rd October
Leonard DiCaprio is on charismatic form in Martin Scorsese’s jet-black comedy about scheming stockbroker Jordan Belfort.
The Snowtown Murders – 5th October
A disturbed serial killer enlists his girlfriend’s son to help murder his victims in this disturbing film based on a series of killings discovered in Australia in 1999. Justin Kurzel’s unsettling, unflinching drama stars Lucas Pittaway, Bob Adriaens and Louise Harris.
black-ish: Season 1 to 5 – 6th October
A man tries to get his family to mingle with the neighbours and find their place in society in Kenya Barris’ excellent sitcom.
American Animals – 7th October
True crime meets Hollywoodised fiction in this gripping, playful anti-documentary about a cleverly stupid heist.
