What’s New on Amazon Prime: February 2018

By

At the beginning of (and during) every month, Amazon Prime adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Below, you’ll find our recommendations for February 2018. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on Amazon and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

This Month’s Highlights

Available February 11

If you’re catching up on the best movies of 2017: Good Time

Otherwise known as the “Damn, Robert Pattinson has been holding out on us!” movie, Good Time not only showed Pattinson at his very best, it put directing duo the Safdie Brothers on the map in a big way. Good Time is a grimy, strung-out movie about a bank robbery gone wrong, which follows Pattinson’s Connie Nikas amid a desperate, almost certainly doomed attempt to break his brother out of prison. Available February 11.

If you’re looking for comic superhero satire: The Tick

Amazon’s revival of The Tick didn’t air all of its first season when it premiered last summer. Leaving us on a cliff-hanger that saw hapless, put-upon sidekick Arthur (Griffin Newman) kidnapped by criminal mastermind the Terror (Jackie Earle Haley), the final six episodes of the season will soon arrive to save us all. Which is great news, because The Tick has been an unexpected pleasure, a series that immediately showed off a surprising amount of depth by centering its story on Arthur, a young man coping with mental illness as the Tick sweeps him into his weird superheroic crusade. It’s kind of sad, but also terribly funny. Available February 23.

Available February 7

If you’re in the mood for a sci-fi binge: The Expanse

It’s a minor miracle that a sci-fi show as sprawling as The Expanse is still going strong, but it just keeps gets better. Season two of the Syfy series arrives on Amazon Prime this month, and with much of the first season’s mystery dispensed with, The Expanse gets down to business about mankind’s solar-system-spanning civilization at the brink of war. If you haven’t seen it before, now’s a good time to start: While it’s a dense show, delighting in political machinations as much as it does the minutiae of outer-space survival, the story opens simply: with a missing girl, and a crew stranded in space. Available February 7.
