Amazon Prime pioneered making content for the streaming audience, beating Netflix to the punch by two years. Despite this, Netflix swept the 2021 Oscars with seven wins, showing it as a strong competitor in film production. Nevertheless, Amazon Prime has come back fighting with its May 2021 slate, which includes both original content and well-loved films.

P!NK: All I Know So Far – arriving May 21

Pink has been on the music scene since 1995, though her debut album came in 2000, and has sold more than 90 million records worldwide.

The official synopsis for the documentary reads: “Join award-winning performer and musician P!NK as she embarks on her record-breaking 2019 Beautiful Trauma world tour and welcomes audiences to join her chosen family while trying to balance being a mum, a wife, a boss and a performer.

Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In – arriving May 29

This film will get its debut in the cinema on May 27, after which it is available for fans to stream online.

The official synopsis reads: “Recovering from a life-threatening brain haemorrhage and acutely aware that his memory might desert him, the greatest football manager of all time begins to recount the most important stories of his life, both in and out of football, to his son Jason in Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In.

“Stories of growing-up and family, alongside sporting triumph and failure, the film includes deeply moving insights from his wife and sons, as well as former players, along the way.”

Pokémon Detective Pikachu – arriving May 19

Pokémon Detective Pikachu is the film nobody knew they needed, but it is full of fun and innovation.

The film follows a young man (played by Justice Smith) who has lost his father, only to be left with his Dad’s irritating Pokémon companion, Pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds.)

But soon Pikachu helps him realise his father’s death was no accident, and together they must find the culprit.

All the Money in the World – arriving May 30

This film has a difficult journey to the screen after its star Kevin Spacey was replaced with the indomitable Christopher Plummer.

All the Money in the World follows the mogul J. Paul Getty, once the richest man in the world, and the events of his grandson John Paul Getty III’s kidnapping.

It received critical acclaim, despite its problems in production, with Christopher receiving an Oscar nomination for his work; his last before his death earlier this year.
