Amazon Prime Video Premieres: The Top Picks for Your Next Stream Including ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’ and the Latest Season of ‘Invincible’


As the digital landscape bustles with fresh content, Amazon Prime Video unveils a slate of electrifying new titles for viewers this week, headlining with the much-anticipated series ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry,’ the Oscar-winning film ‘American Fiction,’ a vivid cinematic portrayal in ‘Frida,’ and the return of the superhero drama ‘Invincible Season 2 Part 2’.

Embark on a journey to Vandana Valley’s elite boarding school with ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry,’ set to stream starting March 14. In this teen drama, seven girls are on the brink of their final year, determined to dominate their prestigious campus. An outsider with high hopes, Kavya Yadav steps into this world, aiming to excel and forge friendships. Each girl holds her ambition; Noor sets her sights on the school captaincy, while Ludo pursues the sports captainship. Amidst this, Roohi and JC hustle to make their beauty business flourish as Pluggy chases after grandiose schemes, and Dia, the rebel poet, readies herself to leap beyond the school’s walls before the bell tolls. Showcasing a dynamic and predominantly female ensemble cast featuring industry luminaries such as Pooja Bhatt, Raima Sen, and Zoya Hussain, alongside Mukul Chadda, the series springs from the creative minds of Nitya Mehra and is co-directed by Sudhanshu Saria, Karan Kapadia, and Kopal Naithani.

Available for streaming now on the platform is ‘American Fiction,’ a witty, endearing comedy-drama film that stars Jeffrey Wright as Thelonious ‘Monk’ Ellison, a beleaguered novelist. Disenchanted with the literary world’s bias and the careless elevation of content mislabeled as ‘Black,’ Monk crafts a pseudonymous ‘Black’ book, ironically pushing him to the edge of insanity and the same hypocrisy he loathes. On the path of his undercover triumph, he reconnects with his exuberant family, confronting him on his perceptions of wealth and contentment. Helmed by Cord Jefferson, the movie’s compelling script clinched the Best Adapted Screenplay award at the 96th Academy Awards.

‘Frida’ also debuts on March 14, weaving an intricate, magical narrative through the life and soul of the iconic artist Frida Kahlo. Enthralling audiences with her expressive illustrated diary, revealing letters, essays, and candid interviews, the film lends a voice to Kahlo, never heard before. Featuring mesmerizing lyrical animation that mirrors Kahlo’s brilliant artwork, the movie marks the feature directorial debut of Carla Gutiérrez, known for her editing prowess in ‘RBG’ and ‘La Corona’. The artistic documentary underlines why Kahlo’s persona and legacy continue to resonate powerfully today.

March 14 also marks the premiere of ‘Invincible Season 2 Part 2’, the gripping continuation of the adult-animated superhero series based on the revolutionary comic book by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley. Central to the storyline is the character of Mark Grayson, an apparently average 18-year-old who grapples with the reality that his father is (or was) Earth’s mightiest hero. Coming to terms with his father’s betrayal and the paralyzing fear of becoming like him, Mark must navigate rebuilding his life amidst emerging menaces. Co-produced by Skybound Animation and Amazon MGM Studios, the series showcases the talents of Steven Yeun, J.K. Simmons, and Sandra Oh in prominent roles.

These diverse and engaging offerings cement Amazon Prime Video’s position as a prime destination for audiences seeking an array of entertainment options. From an introspective dive into the psyche of a cultural icon to the complex web of teenage ambition, from an acclaimed satirical take on literary politics to the dark nuances of being born powerful, Prime Video’s latest lineup promises to captivate, challenge, and entertain.
