Sylvester Stallone: Big enough to take out a Chris Pratt-sized Navy SEAL but not big enough to take out a women's baseball team. The action star's new movie Samaritan debuts at No. 2 on Amazon Prime Video's top 10 shows and movies list on the same day it was released, so there's a good chance that it will be No. 1 over the weekend. A League of Their Own remains in the top spot, and The Terminal List falls to No. 3, the lowest it's been since it premiered on July 1. Stephen Merchant's The Outlaws is the odd show out, dropping off the list.

The top 10 movies and shows on Prime Video are listed below, but we're not just listing them; we're also putting our opinions on there to help you figure out which are worth watching. And to help you plan what you'll watch next, we've added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.

New releases on Prime Video:

  • Samaritan - Sylvester Stallone stars as a superhero who comes out of hiding after a young fan finds him in this dark superhero film.
  • Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby - A look at the life and career of rapper Lil Baby.
