The question every streaming service asks itself: Drop all at once or roll out weekly? Following a week at No. 1 looking like the next big thing, The English has fallen to No. 2 on Amazon Prime Video's Top 10 Shows and Movies list after dropping all six of its episodes on its Nov. 11 release date, while The Peripheral, which releases new episodes weekly, has regained the top spot that it claimed for the first time all the way back in late October. Streaming numbers are a tricky business, but here we see the strength of a weekly rollout. The new film The People We Hate at the Wedding is having a strong showing in its first weekend of release, rising to No. 3. All this movement has pushed The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power to its lowest ranking yet: No. 5.
The most popular new movies and shows on Prime Video are below, but we'll also chime in on whether or not they're worth watching. Just because something is popular, that doesn't mean it's good, right? And to help you plan what you'll watch next, we've added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.
