New movies on Amazon Prime in March 2023

This is a great month for new movies on Amazon Prime. While our Editor's Picks section always highlights three films we love, there's even a fourth that we almost included. And they're all pretty recent, with the oldest being 2015's Creed (Creed II is also coming to  Prime Video).

Elsewhere this month, you've got great new-to Prime Video movies, such as Pulp Fiction, Dazed and Confused, Being John Malkovich, Good Will Hunting, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Paths of Glory and The Virgin Suicides.

And while not all of the Rocky movies will likely have a shot at making it to the best movies on Prime Video list, they're all coming to Prime Video this month. Joining them are Sly Stallone's action-packed Expendables sequels. 

Oddly enough, the new movies on Prime Video this month will feature Oscar best picture nominee Women Talking (one of the top new movies to watch online this week), but for only a select window of time — March 8th through the 12th. Before we get to the big list of the new movies on Amazon Prime this month, let's dive into three of our picks:

New movies on Amazon Prime: Editor's picks

Creed (2015)

Adonis "Donnie" Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of Apollo Creed, is not a character anyone saw coming. But much like Michael B. Jordan himself, Creed caught fire upon arrival to the big screen. This first chapter of the Creed trilogy, directed by the fantastic Ryan Coogler, sees Creed struggle through detention centers and other paths in life. But it's through Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), his father's old rival, that Creed finally gets a chance to define his own name.

Thrilling, and proof that spinoffs can be fantastic films, Creed is a critically acclaimed sports movie that most should love. Its fight sequences may be too much for some, but the film is utterly fantastic overall.

On Prime Video starting March 1

Nope (2022)

Otis Jr. (Daniel Kaluuya), and Emerald (Keke Palmer) inherited the family business at Haywood Hollywood Horses in a manner that would make many think the land was cursed. But quiet Otis Jr. (aka OJ) stuck with the business of training horses for Hollywood, and Emerald (aka Em) shows up to be the more affable public face of the team when she's able. A series of events at their ranch, though, border on the supernatural, and their neighbor (Steven Yeun) is ready to profit off the mysterious events at his amusement park.

Nope, as Jordan Peele's third film, arrived with a high bar to clear for fans of Get Out and Us. While it may be a bit more literal and less open to interpretation at times, other moments are completely left up to audiences to decipher. Personally, it's my favorite of Peele's movies.

Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

Pete "Maverick" Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is back, and in the least likely role ever: teacher. The TOPGUN academy's latest class of graduates need the former wild-child (who's still irritating the higher-ups) to show them how to pull off an impossible mission. But this drama will be even more intense for Mitchell, as one of the cadets — Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller) — is the son of Pete's former wingman Goose.

In the theaters, I was white-knuckling my arm-rest as I enjoyed every minute of Top Gun: Maverick. At home (I own the film on 4K Blu-ray), I've continued to enjoy it on rewatching. Also, Maverick — no offense to fans of the original Top Gun — has a much stronger plot. Whereas the original was more loose and casual, with stakes eventually, this film puts Mitchell through a lot more drama.
