With its list of new releases for January 2022, Amazon Prime Video is keeping things pretty simple. The streaming giant is rolling out a couple of original films, one big TV effort, and a whole host of library content, then calling it a day. And really, that’s all you need!
The two Amazon original films this month are of the family friendly variety. The Tender Bar, based on a memoir of the same name and directed by George Clooney, premieres on Jan. 7. This is followed on Jan. 14 by Hotel Transylvania: Transformania. This is the fourth installment in the animated Hotel Transylvania series, hammering home the fact that if you bring Adam Sandler and Genndy Tartakovsky aboard you project, things are gonna go pretty smoothly.
The one Amazon original TV series this month is As We See It. This project comes from Friday Night Lights head writer Jason Katims and is based on the Israeli series On the Spectrum. The show follows three twentysomething roommates on the autism spectrum.
The first of the month sees the usual arrival of a bevy of library film titles. This time around The Prestige, The Village, and four Mission: Impossible movies all come to Amazon. The real jewel, however, is Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master on Jan. 13.
