Listen to this article

Welcome to TechRadar’s new Prime Video movies article. In this guide, you’ll find, well, all of the new movies that’ll debut on Prime Video this month. That includes the latest Amazon film originals, as well as enough third-party movies to shake a stick at.

You’ll find a full rundown of every new Prime Video film further down this page. Before you reach that, though, you’ll see our spotlights section, which contains six flicks that we’ve picked out from this month’s list (all of who boast Rotten Tomatoes (RT) scores over 60%) and consider to be must-see on one of the world’s best streaming services. But enough chatter – here are all of the new Prime Videos that’ll launch on the platform in the weeks ahead.

New Prime Video movies: the best films to stream in April

The Notebook

Release date: April 1
RT score: 54% (critics); 85% (audience)

This weepy romantic drama that turned Ryan Gosling into a hunk in the eyes of many. The Barbie A-lister stars alongside Rachel McAdams (Doctor Strange) as Noah and Allie, a young couple who fall madly in love in the 1940s. Rather than tell this tale in the era it’s set, though, The Notebook sees an elderly Noah recount their story to a fellow nursing home resident in the present.

A melodrama that’s ripe for repeat viewings at this time of year, The Notebook will have you rolling your eyes at its schlocky romanticized moments, or crying tears of sadness (and occasionally joy) with its sentimental value.

Titanic

Release date: April 1
RT score: 88% (critics); 69% (audience) 

If one romantic drama isn’t enough for you this month, James Camerson’s multi-award-winning 1997 film Titanic is also among this month’s new Prime Video movies. At-the-time breakout stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet play Jack and Rose, star-crossed lovers who meet on board the famous 1912 passenger ship during its maiden voyage that ended in tragedy.

An overly long watch at times, Titanic continues to be popular to this day, with old and new fans alike enjoying (if that’s the right word to use) what’s on offer. With 11 Oscars under its belt, it’s well worth the adulation. See where it ranks in our best James Cameron movies list while you’re here.

Música

Release date: April 4
RT score: TBC 

Billed a coming-of-age rom-com, Música stars Rudy Manusco as a fictionalized version of himself who’s constantly plagued by music playing in his head. Think of it as his own personal never-ending lift soundtrack, and you’ll get the gist. Anyway, Música follows Rudy as his eventful life takes many twists and turns, including issues with his love life and his attempts to balance family time with work commitments.

The first trailer for Música shows what it’s like to live with unstoppable music (and occasional puppets), which sounds as silly but heart-warming as you’d expect. One that could be a sleeper hit among April’s other new Prime Video movies.

How To Date Billy Walsh

Release date: April 5
RT score: TBC 

The romantic-positioned films continue to flow on Amazon’s primary streamer this month with this Prime Video Original. How To Date Billy Walsh follows teenagers Amelia (Charithra Chandran) and Archie (Sebastien Croft), lifelong friends who should really be more by this point. However, when Archie finally plucks up the courage to ask Amelia out, he finds out she’s fallen for US transfer student Billy (Tanner Buchanan). Cue Archie’s attempts to keep them apart by any means necessary.

We don’t expect this one to be a major hit for Prime Video, but it’s sure to appeal to certain sections of the platform’s userbase.

Spectre

Release date: April 22
RT score: 63% (critics); 61% (audience) 

Arguably the least popular of Daniel Craig’s James Bond outings – find out where we ranked it on our best Daniel Craig James Bond movies list – 2015’s Spectre has *ahem* ghosted onto Prime Video this month.

Craig’s fourth flick as the iconic British spy sees Bond pursue a number of leads that, well, lead him to the doors of the shadowy titular criminal organization, which is led by the villainous Blofeld (Christoph Waltz). It has some memorable moments, but it’s certainly not as strong a 007 film as Casino Royale or Skyfall.

The Holdovers

Release date: April 29
RT score: 97% (critics); 92% (audience) 

Fresh off the 2024 awards circuit where it won numerous gongs, The Holdovers will make its Prime Video debut before April ends. Set in the early 1970s, it follows a strict classics teacher called Paul Hunham (Paul Giamatti), who is forced to chaperone a number of New England boarding school pupils who have nowhere to go over the 1970 Christmas holidays. Dominic Sessa and multi-award winner Da’Vine Joy Randolph also star.

As its RT scores suggest, The Holdovers has wowed fans and critics alike with more amusing sequences and heartfelt narrative. Stick it on your new Prime Video movies watchlist ASAP.
