Child’s Play and more are on Amazon Prime Video this week

On Amazon Prime Video this week, June 8-12, two new movies will be added to the sizable Amazon Prime Video catalog. You can watch Child’s Play and Knives Out.

Unfortunately, neither new movie comes out until Friday, June 12. At least that means you’ll be able to kick off the weekend with a mini-movie marathon if they both entice you.

Knives Out is a must-watch on Amazon Prime Video

Out of the two new additions coming to Amazon Prime Video this week, Knives Out is definitely the superior choice. Starring an incredible ensemble of actors, like Toni Colette, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, and more, Knives Out is a fun and smart murder mystery sort of similar to an Agatha Christie novel.
