March is Women’s History Month, and Amazon Prime Video is celebrating with a hub highlighting the voices of women actors, producers, writers, and filmmakers. That includes series like the streaming service’s original hit The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, acquired films like Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, and more.

There are also a few major original films and series headed to the streaming service: In addition to the adult animated superhero series Invincible, from The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and featuring the voice of Steven Yeun, Prime will also welcome Spanish romantic drama La Templanaza (The Vineyard) and Australian Football League docuseries Making their Mark, plus the highly anticipated sequel film Coming 2 America.

Starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall, Coming 2 America sees the men reprise their roles from 1988 film Coming to America as now-King Akeem and his trusted confidant Semmi, who once again travel from Zamunda to New York for a new (and of course hilarious) adventure.

Films headed to Prime Video and its sister service IMDb TV this month also include Attack the Block, the 2011 debut of newly minted Golden Globe winner John Boyega, all three Back to the Future movies, a slew of Land Before Time sequels for kids, and many more. Keep reading to find out what else is new on Amazon Prime Video in March, with some highlights noted at the top.



Attack the Block (2011)

90%

Description: South London teenagers (John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Leeon Jones) defend their neighborhood from malevolent extraterrestrials.

Critics Consensus: Effortlessly mixing scares, laughs, and social commentary, Attack the Block is a thrilling, brisky-paced sci-fi yarn with a distinctly British flavor.

Premiere Date: March 1, 2021



Coming 2 America (2021)

49%

Description: Set in the lush and royal country of Zamunda, in Coming 2 America newly-crowned King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) embark on an all-new hilarious adventure that has them traversing the globe from their great African nation to the borough of Queens, New York – where it all began.

Premiere Date: March 5, 2021



Description: From The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, and based on the Skybound/Image comic of the same name by Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, Invincible is an adult animated superhero show that revolves around seventeen-year-old Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), who’s just like every other guy his age — except that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). But as Mark develops powers of his own, he discovers that his father’s legacy may not be as heroic as it seems.

Premiere Date: March 26, 2021
