How long will The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power be on top now that it’s done?
Morfydd Clark, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power
Sure, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is the big story here given its Season 1 finale and anticipation for Season 2, and it’s going to be No. 1 on Amazon Prime Video’s top 10 shows and movies list for a long time. But the most interesting story is the film Double Threat, a low-budget action flick that has come out of nowhere to join the top 10 since last week. It was a surprise to the screenwriter, too, who went on Reddit to convey his shock that a screenplay he wrote in less than a week somehow found success on Prime Video, and to explain how he writes "cheeseburger movies." It’s an interesting read about the process and the different levels of commercial success.  
The most popular new movies and shows on Prime Video are below, but we’ll also chime in on whether or not they’re worth watching. Just because something is popular, that doesn’t mean it’s good, right? And to help you plan what you’ll watch next, we’ve added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.
