What to Watch on Amazon Prime Video in March 2021
Following the Golden Globe Awards, people might be hungry for new tv shows and movies to consume. After a night of honoring the most celebrated new content in Hollywood, fans might turn to Amazon Prime Video to find something new to watch in March 2021. So, here’s what is being added to Amazon Prime Video this month.
The ‘Back to the Future’ series hits Amazon Prime Video on March 1
First, for the 1980s science-fiction fans, Back to the Future (1985) arrives on Amazon Prime Video on March 1. Further, the sequels, Back to the Future Part II (1989) and Back to the Future Part III (1990), are also now available to stream on the platform. The franchise is about a teen who accidentally time travels to the 1950s and puts his own life at risk due to his tampering with time.
The first movie stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, and Crispin Glover. Thomas F. Wilson joins the cast for the second and third successful films.
The 2011 movie ‘No Strings Attached’ is on Amazon Prime Video
Secondly, another popular movie that is being added to Amazon Prime Video this month is No Strings Attached. The film is a 2011 romantic comedy starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. It is centered around the question: Can two friends hook up with no strings attached? The premise seems to flip the question from the beloved film When Harry Met Sally (1989), which asks if a man and a woman can be friends without any sexual tension.
In a predictable, but still playful formula, the two end up falling for each other while roadblocks stand in their way of being together. Also in the cast are Mindy Kaling, Ludacris, Greta Gerwig, and Jake Johnson.
Elizabeth Meriwether wrote the screenplay and Ivan Reitman directed it. Similar to No Strings Attached and also released in 2011, Friends with Benefits, starring Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, is often compared to the latter film.
‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial’ is also available to watch for fans
In addition to the Back to the Future films being added to the platform, science-fiction fans will also be pleased to hear that E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) is also available to watch now on Amazon Prime Video. Consequently, viewers can consume the iconic film, directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Melissa Mathison. The movie stars Dee Wallace, Henry Thomas, Peter Coyote, Robert MacNaughton, and Drew Barrymore.
During the movie film, Elliott (Thomas) meets an alien, E.T., that is stuck on earth and wants to go back home.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial launched Barrymore’s career and won big during awards season. The movie won four Academy Awards and was nominated for a total of nine Oscars. It also won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture — Drama and Best Original Score — Motion Picture. It got five total nominations at the Golden Globes.
