Looking for all of the new Prime Video movies that are due to land on the streamer in March? You've come to the right place.

At the start of each month, we update this article with a comprehensive list of all of the new movies set to be released on Amazon's primary streamer. That includes its new line-up of movie originals, plus every licensed movie that's found a new (or another) home on Prime Video.

Below, you'll see that this guide comprises two sections: the first is our Spotlights area, which is where we handpicked a certain number of films each month that should be of most interest to you. The other section is a full rundown of every new Prime Video film coming over the next four weeks, so head straight there if you want a complete guide on what's airing throughout March.

Here, then, are all of the new Prime Video movies launching (or that have already launched, depending on when you're reading this) on one of the world's best streaming services.

New Prime Video movies: the best films to stream in March

Batman (1989)

Release date: March 1

Prime Video has become the de-facto home for Warner Bros’ superhero movies (including its defunct DCEU ones), aside from Max, in recent months – so it’s high time the Michael Keaton-starring Batman films made their grand arrival on the service.

Of that duo, 1989’s Batman is the superior flick (sorry, 1992’s Batman Returns). It was the first time that, thanks to director Tim Burton, a Dark Knight movie actively leaned into the more gothic and horror-based aspects of the legendary DC vigilante’s illustrious history. Not only that, we also got a harder hitting Caped Crusader, with Keaton’s iteration unafraid to take lives (Batman v Superman haters, take note), Jack Nicholson’s iconic take on The Joker, a more adult-oriented comic book movie (a rarity at the time), plenty more besides. 

A fascinatingly hypnotic Batman film – one of the best superhero movies of all-time, too – that couldn’t get made in the same way today. See where it ranks in our best Batman movies list, or find out how to watch the Batman movies in order

How to Train Your Dragon

Release date: March 1

One of three DreamWorks film properties that have become big hits – Shrek and Kung Fu Panda being the others – How to Train Your Dragon is a great example of how to create an original film series without losing sight of what made it so fun, and impressively building upon them, with each new entry.

The story of Hiccup, a teen with ambitions on becoming a famous dragon rider, and Toothless (the eponymous fire-breathing but doe-eyed beast) is a dazzling spectacle that intelligently marries real heart and vivacious energy with rich character and world-building depth. Kids will love Toothless and marvel at the movie’s visuals, while parents/adults will be quietly impressed with the scope and scale of its thematically resonant tale. Stick it on your new Prime Video movies watchlist ASAP.

Five Nights at Freddy's

Release date: March 3

Over four months on from its simultaneous release in theaters (worldwide) and on Peacock (in the US), Universal’s live-action adaptation of iconic video game franchise Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNAF) has shuffled onto Prime Video.

For the uninitiated: FNAF follows Mike Schmidt, a young man who becomes the new (and latest) night shift guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, whose star attractions are its seemingly cuddly animatronic animals. Unbeknownst to Mike, though, said anthropomorphic robots come alive at night – and you don’t want to be caught by them, trust us.

Despite its deviations from its gaming source material, the FNAF movie is a largely faithful remake of Scott Cawthon’s horror-fuelled multimedia franchise. Critics hated it, but general audiences loved how FNAF’s film adaptation gave them endless stage fright and gory spooks galore.

Ricky Stanicky

Release date: March 7

The first of two big Amazon film originals releasing this month, outrageous comedy Ricky Stanicky teams Zac Efron with John Cena for a story about a white lie that grows wildly out of control.

Efron plays Dean, one of three childhood friends who invent an imaginary fourth friend (the titular character) to get themselves out of a tight spot, going so far as to hire a washed-up actor/celebrity impersonator known as ‘Rock Hard’ Rod (Cena) to portray Stanicky. Unfortunately, when Rod takes his so-called “role of a lifetime” way too seriously, Dean and company soon find themselves in over their heads. One of March’s new Prime Video movies that could be absolutely brilliant or terrible.

Road House

Release date: March 21

Based on the 1989 Patrick Swayze-led film of the same name, Amazon’s Road House remake stars Jake Gyllenhaal as an ex-UFC fighter named Dalton. Hired to be the new bouncer of a Florida-based roadhouse – essentially, a club outside of the city limits – Dalton soon realizes his new-look paradise isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Road House hit the headlines in late January when its director lashed out at Amazon over an alleged broken promise about giving it a theatrical release. Sure, all publicity is good publicity but, with Road House’s stars having to continually bat away questions over the growing feud between filmmaker Doug Liman and Amazon’s movie making department, art is certainly imitating life when it comes to this action-heavy flick. One to add to our best Prime Video movies list? We'll know for sure in late March.
