Amazon next month (June 2020) plans to add 53 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including three new originals.

The new titles will include Knives Out (pictured above), the acclaimed 2019 murder mystery film starring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson and Michael Shannon in a cast of thousands, or it seems., which tracks critical reviews, gives the devilish romp a score of 97 out of a possible 100, based on 431 reviews. (That’s as solid a recommendation you will ever see, folks.)

“Knives Out sharpens old murder-mystery tropes with a keenly assembled suspense outing that makes brilliant use of writer-director Rian Johnson’s stellar ensemble,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.

Also notable in June: 7500, an Amazon original suspense film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a young American co-pilot who must fend off terrorists on a flight from Berlin to Paris; Gina Brillon: The Floor Is Lava, an Amazon original comedy stand-up special starring the aforementioned; and a new season of Pete the Cat, the Amazon original animated series about a music-loving feline.
