What’s coming to Amazon Prime Video on April 1

The majority of the content this week arrives on Thursday, April 1, and no this isn’t an April Fools joke. There is some excellent content, whether you want comedy, horror, or drama.

One of the notable additions is Platoon, which arrives on Amazon Prime Video now and again. The movie follows a platoon that heads to the front during the Vietnam War, and we get to see the horrors of that both during and after.

For those who like thrillers, Minority Report is worth checking out. The Tom Cruise movie follows a man who needs to prove he’s not about to commit a crime. However, technology can tell when criminals are going to commit a crime and the tech says he will.

When it comes to TV shows, Keeping Faith is one you’ll want to watch this week. The first season is available as part of the Amazon Channels offerings. You’ll be able to watch the second season on Acorn TV when you’ve binged the first, Amazonadviser reported.
