What’s leaving Amazon Prime Video UK in September / October 2021?
James R | On 27, Sep 2021
As the UK continues to navigate its way through the coronavirus 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 modern gems before their rights expire.
This is your last chance to stream the following with Amazon Prime UK:
Queen & Slim – 27th September
Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith are brilliant in this gripping couple-on-the-run thriller.
Scrooged – 30th September
Bill Murray does some of his finest work in this modern twist on A Christmas Carol.
Contagion – 1st October
Steven Soderbergh’s film about a plague spreading across the planet is not only scarily believable but grippingly tense.
The Wedding Guest – 1st October
Dev Patel delivers an excellent turn against type in this slight but compelling thriller.
The Last Five Years – 1st October
This indie musical romance is a sharply scripted, handsomely performed show-stopper.
Justified: Season 1 to 6 – 2nd October
Timothy Olyphant and Elmore Leonard fans shouldn’t miss this FX series that sees Olyphant play US Marshal Raylan, a quiet law-man haunted by his past who returns to his native town and is hell-bent on enforcing his own brand of justice.
The Perfect Candidate – 2nd October
Haifaa al-Mansour returns to Saudi Arabia for this stirring portrait of resistance and resilience.
The Shield: Season 1 to 7 – 4th October
The best anti-hero on the small screen since Walter White – but this came first.
Alex Rider: Season 1 – 7th October
This slick, stylish and smart thriller is a James Bond box set the whole family can binge.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy – 9th October
This impeccable adaptation of John le Carre’s spy thriller is an atmospheric puzzle of betrayal, distrust and decline.
Attack the Block – 9th October
Jodie Whittaker and John Boyega are fantastic in Joe Cornish’s small-scale sci-fi gem.
The Hurt Locker – 9th October
The Hurt Locker packs more edge-of-your-seat action than your average blockbuster. And every frame is utterly unflinching.
Shazam! – 11th October
Big meets LEGO Batman in this enjoyably warm and funny superhero comedy.
Empire: Season 1 to 6 – 1st October
This hip hop musical drama from Lee Daniels stars Terence Howard as Lucious Lyon, the CEO of Empire Entertainment. Diagnosed with a terminal illness, which of his sons will be his heir? Faster than you can say “King Lear”, in walks his ex-wife Cookie (a scene-stealing Taraji P. Henson), fresh out of prison, who wants a piece of what’s hers. It’s a dysfunctional family that EastEnders would be proud of, but Empire manages to feel much bigger than Albert Square, thanks to the cast, the talent behind the camera and, most of all, its use of music.
The Matrix trilogy – 15th October
Don’t miss the chance to catch up with the Wachowskis’ groundbreaking action franchise before its fourth entry arrives.
Bob’s Burgers: Season 1 to 10 – 17th October

Bid farewell to the world of tomorrow!
Amelie – 19th October
When impish Amélie finds a long-hidden trove of toys behind a baseboard in her apartment, she’s inspired to return the items to their original owner. This is the one French film that everyone’s seen, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth seeing a second time.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 1 to 7 – 19th October
If you haven’t ever seen Joss Whedon’s vampire-slaying series, starring a literally kick-ass Sarah Michelle Gellar, stop reading and get watching now.
Shaun the Sheep: Season 2 to 5 – 22nd October
Don’t miss your chance to hang with Aardman’s most charming stop-motion sheep.
Constantine – 23rd October
Keanu Reeves delivers a distinctive, dark turn in this bold, underrated comic book adaptation.
New Girl: Season 1 to 7 – 24th October
After a bad break-up, Jess moves into an apartment loft with three single men. Although they find her behavior very unusual, the men support her – most of the time. Zooey Deschanel is on winning form in one of the most entertaining sitcoms of modern TV.
