Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is the biggest release on Prime Video this week. What else can you stream on the platform?

There is absolutely no doubt that The Lord of the Rings series is the one show almost everyone is excited about. Fans of the movies and books or not, this is a series that many have highly anticipated.

The first two episodes drop together on Thursday, Sept. 1 in North America. Yes, this is earlier than originally thought, as the official release date remains as Friday, Sept. 2. After this, we’ll get one episode per week on Fridays.

Cabin Fever, The Expendables, and more

What else is streaming on Prime Video? Well, it is the week where the first of the month drop hits. That means there is plenty to check out. Don’t try to get through it all this week! That’s not what the big drop is about.

Among the big drop are Cabin Fever and The Expendables. Cabin Fever is perfect for the horror fans out there. It’s not your standard serial killer in the woods story. Instead, it focuses on a horror that the campers simply wouldn’t have been able to escape.

If you’re watching Samaritan this weekend, you may want to watch other Sylvester Stallone movies. The great news is all of The Expendables movies are available to stream on Prime Video as of Thursday, Sept. 1.

What about earlier in the week? The 1977 movie 1900 is available to stream on Tuesday, Aug. 30. It focuses on the class struggle in the early 1900s in Italy and has an outstanding cast list.
