Upload and more coming to Amazon Prime Video in May 2020

Upload is just one of the great new originals heading to Amazon Prime Video in May 2020. Here’s the full list of new arrivals.

Don’t feel like you’re going to miss out on new content because broadcast networks have little new. Streamers are the place to turn. Amazon Prime Video has plenty of great content heading your way in May 2020.

There are a few noteworthy mentions for the month. One of those is Upload, which stars Robbie Amell as a man who ends up dying. Yep, the first episode sees him killed off! But this isn’t something like Game of Thrones where you’re pulled in with a couple of strong actors who disappear after the first season. Amell’s character goes to the digital afterlife, where he needs to figure out how to “live” and who killed him in the first place.

For those who like science fiction, you’ll want to check out the new Amazon Original movie, The Vast of Night. Set in the 1950s in a small town, a couple of friends need to figure out what is disrupting their radio waves. Are aliens among them?

There are some excellent new additions when it comes to blockbuster movies. The biggest release has to be Rocketman, which tells Elton John’s story of how he got started as the great musician that he is today. It’s not just about the highs, but about the lows of his career and personal life.
