Five English movies/shows to watch on Amazon Prime this February
As is common knowledge, Amazon Prime Video faces tough competition from existing and new streaming services. Even with highly competitive pricing, the platform is hard pressed to add new content to retain and attract a larger viewer base. To this extent, February will see the arrival of new shows and films. Read all about it here.
February 1 will see the arrival of the Matrix trilogy to Amazon Prime Video. As the hit sci-fi action trilogy by the Wachowskis turns 20, there is no better time to dive into the adventures of Neo as he begins to question the nature of reality around him. The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions will be hosted on the platform.
Terminator 2: Judgement Day is also coming to Prime on February 1. The sequel to the cult hit by James Cameron will see the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as T-800, introduced in the first movie as a villainous robot. Linda Hamilton appears as Sarah Connor and the film introduces Edward Furlong's John Connor. Watch how T-800 is redeemed through his relationship with the Connors.
Agatha Christie Presents: ABC Murders is a Prime original series arriving on February 1. It stars John Malkovich as legendary detective Hercule Poirot who must track a murderer going by the name 'A.B.C.', using his little grey cells to decode the clues that the murderer sends him. One of Poirot's few cases, which are not locked room mysteries, this show holds promise.
Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot is arriving on February 8 to Amazon Prime. It is based on the autobiography of the award-winning cartoonist John Callahan. Callahan, affected by paralysis in all four limbs, went on to gain international acclaim for his edgy cartoons.
