The Prime Video platform has plenty of new stuff in store for its cinephile subscribers this week with the wacky superhero film Kick-Ass, the tandem Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt in Passengers, as well as the poignant feature film Our Friend.
Want to take your mind off this week on Prime Video? From this Friday, April 16, discover the history of the WikiLeaks site and its founder Julian Assange in The Fifth Power. This Bill Condon biopic features a stunningly bleached-haired Benedict Cumberbatch.
Continue the week with the adventures of Dave Lizewski, determined to become a badass vigilante in Kick-Ass. The only catch? The teenager played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson has absolutely no power unlike the superheroes he idolizes. A quirky feature film to see again on Prime Video from April 20.
If you’re more in the romantic mood, also find the duo Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt in the sci-fi movie Passengers. The two stars embody the only awakened passengers of a spaceship which should not reach its destination before… 90 years.
On April 22, discover a touching ode to friendship in Our Friend with Dakota Johnson, Casey Affleck and Jason Segel. The new Amazon Original film tells the heartbreaking story of Matthew Teague and his wife, Nicole, when the latter discovers that he has only six months to live.
