Amazon today is adding 55 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including several James Bond films, and an indie thriller starring a then relatively unknown superstar to be.
Amazon, and other streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu, traditionally bolster their streaming offerings on the first day of each month when consumers are more likely to make decisions about subscriptions.
The new title list for Amazon Prime today includes such Bond classics as Dr. No, From Russia With Love and Tbunderball.
But arguably the one movie you shouldn’t miss is Winter’s Bone, the 2010 drama (pictured above) starring a 20-year-old Jennifer Lawrence as a young girl in the Ozarks who searches for her missing father in dangerous terrain.
Before Hollywood came courting, Lawrence exhibited her full range of gifts, and the film won a surprise nomination for the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Note: Amazon Prime streaming titles are free to Amazon Prime members. The service, which also includes free 2-day shipping on thousands of Amazon products, costs $99 a year. You can also now order Amazon Prime streaming for $8.99 a month, but the monthly service does not include the other Prime benefits. You can sign up here.
