What’s new on Amazon Prime Video in May 2024

Nicholas Galitzine and Anne Hathaway in The Idea of You.
Amazon MGM Studios

Unlike some other streaming services in May, Amazon Prime Video is giving subscribers all of the movies that they can handle. Everything from classic Westerns like 3:10 To Yuma and comedies like Airplane! to dramas like Cold Mountain and more are arriving on May 1. Even the German thriller Run Lola Run is back on Prime Video. And if you haven’t seen it yet, you should — it’s terrific.

Prime Video is also premiering new originals in May, including Anne Hathaway’s new romantic drama The Idea of You, as well as Outer Range season 2, The GOAT, and Clarkson’s Farm. George Clooney’s period drama The Boys in The Boat is also arriving on Prime Video this month, but not until May 28.

Below, you’ll find the complete list of what’s coming to Amazon Prime Video in May, with our recommendations in bold. And if you need a little more help deciding what to watch, we also have a list of the best movies streaming on Amazon, as well as a list of the best TV shows streaming on Amazon. If Amazon isn’t your only go-to streaming service, we also have helpful articles on the best movies on Netflix and the best shows on Netflix, as well as plenty of guides for Hulu, Disney+, and HBO Max.
