Amazon is always licensing movies and TV series for distribution on Prime Video. The titles are available with a Prime Video subscription. But those movies come and go as licensing runs out. However, productions from Amazon Studios will likely never leave the platform. The films often get released in theaters, such as 2x Oscar-winning drama Manchester by The Sea (2016). So, let’s get right to it! Here are the best Amazon Studios movies on Prime.

The Tomorrow War (Prime)

Amazon Original The Tomorrow War is a high-concept sci-fi film in which humans from the future return to the past to recruit help in fighting an invading alien species on Earth. The best part of this movie may be the sound, with immersive and low-frequency effects that will spin your head, literally. The video is also impressive with 4k resolution and deeper color depth with HDR. The aliens and visual effects are really well done (as they should be) in this $200M film produced by Skydance and Paramount. Watch on Prime
