After satiating our senses with a selection of cinematic releases last month, our good friend Jeff is back at it again in March 2023. That’s right, the superyacht-sailing supervillain behind Amazon Prime Video is delivering another schedule loaded with content primed to take over your weekend and rule your living room for the next 31 days. Filled with movies, series and documentaries, the streaming schedule for March 2023 is a mixed bag of action and adventure, with a few Pride-theme additions thrown in. From the blockbuster debut of Emily Browning’s apocalyptic reunion series Class of ’07 to whatever Dave Hughes is doing in Ridiculous, the streaming service isn’t afraid to through a few darts at the map and neither should you. Here’s what is coming to Amazon Prime Video Australia in March 2023.

Best New Series on Amazon Prime
The whole reason we come to the streamer in the first place, new Amazon Prime Video series launches are pure gold. This month, we’ve got a whole host of big new releases, headlined by one major all-out action adventure. Here are the best new series coming to Amazon Prime Video in March 2023.
Donald Glover’s next series after the uber-successful Atlanta, Swarm details a different side of the music industry. Starring Dominique Fishback, Chloe Bailey, and Damson Idris, the upcoming series follows Dre, a young woman whose obsession with a pop star takes a dark turn. According to the official synopsis, Swarm is a dive into Dre’s life, her fandom, and how it takes her to dark, unexpected places. While we don’t really know much about the series, we’re already marking this one down as our top pick for March.
Release Date: March 17
Class of ’07
Remember that old adage, ‘high-school never ends’? Well, imagine that premise applied to your high-school reunion – that’s the plot of Amazon Prime Video’s new series Class of ’07. A comedy (allegedly) about a never-ending high school reunion with life-or-death stakes, the new series sees an apocalyptic tidal wave hit during the 10-year reunion of an all-girls high school. Fearing the worst, the former friends and bullies band together in a very Lord of the Flies-esque battle for survival. This one stars Suckerpunch legend Emily Browning, along with everyone’s favourite former Neighbours alum Caitlin Stacey.
Release Date: March 17
Daisy Jones & The Six
Daisy Jones & The Six feels oddly familiar. What starts out like a rehashing of the ’80s flick Eddie and the Cruisers appears to end exactly the same way, although we’ll reserve judgement until the series is released in its entirety. Based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, this new series follows the story of a fictional 1970s band, fronted by two feuding yet charismatic lead singers, Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne. At the height of their career, the two twin flames call it quits, but now decades later, they’ve returned to reveal the truth.
Release Date: March 3
Despite a confusing and somewhat juvenile premise, this one actually looks quite good. The Power is a supernatural force that appears out of the blue to grant teenage girls the ability to electrocute people at will. Why? Who knows, but we’re here for the ride! The series features a cast of unique characters from London to Seattle, Nigeria to Eastern Europe, all sharing a bizarre power that threatens to derail the world. Based on British author Naomi Alderman’s award-winning novel, The Power also stars Aussie Toni Collette, who seems to be in every new Amazon Prime series released in the last 12 months.
Release Date: March 31
Best New Movies on Amazon Prime Video
While the quality of Amazon Prime Video films is a bit up and down, this month, the streamer has decided not to do anything at all. Instead, Amazon Prime is only adding existing films in March, rather than dipping its toes in the original arena. Here’s what you need to put on your radar this month.
Wrath of Man
While it’s definitely not an Amazon Prime Video original, Wrath of Man is still your best bet for a good watch this month. The Guy Ritchie heist flick sees Jason Stathman, Scott Eastwood and Josh Hartnett team up in an effort to secure some serious cash. In a serious change of pace, Statham goes against his usual ‘British gangster infiltrating an underground London crime syndicate’ role to play a ‘British gangster infiltrating an underground American crime syndicate’. In Wrath of Man, he plays H, a mysterious truckie known for his amazing precision. Insert some robbers and a bit of cold, hard revenge and you’ve got a classic case of Ritchie/Statham on-screen action.
Release Date: March 10
When we heard Bruce Willis’ recent condition had gone from bad to worse, we deemed it necessary to binge-watch all his classics. Apparently, Amazon Prime Video had a similar thought, heading into the archives to unearth a few of his lesser-known pieces. White Elephant is a recent release that sees Willis back in the saddle, albeit in a pretty average thriller. The film follows two cops who witness an assassination attempt, prompting a ruthless crime boss to order an ex-Marine turned mob enforcer to eliminate any and all threats. Confusing, convoluted and critically panned, White Elephant won’t be your favourite movie, but it will keep you entertained.
Release Date: March 5
The Oceans Franchise
Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon. Enough said. The Ocean’s Eleven franchise is one of the world’s best-loved remakes, taking what the Rat Pack did in the ’60s and doubling it. Three movies in the series are making their way to Amazon Prime Video this month, meaning you can spend all of March 24 glued to the couch watching Don Cheadle butcher a cockney accent. Amazing.
Release Date: March 24
New Documentaries on Amazon Prime
This month, Amazon Prime Video has shied away from the documentary side of things, only releasing two, however, they’re pretty big ones. Here are the best new documentaries coming to Amazon Prime in January 2023.
Hugo Van Cuylenburg G.E.M.
Best-selling author of The Resilience Project and Let Go, Hugo Van Cuylenburg comes to streaming services this month with his documentary G.E.M. Exploring positive mental health tips and strategies, the happiness expert unpacks how to live a more fulfilling life.
Release Date: March 9
Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders is a living legend. The NFL champion turned youth sports pioneer has transformed Jackson State University’s football program into a fully-fledged athletic institution, and now you can see how he did. Coach Prime is a four-episode docu-series that takes viewers behind the scenes of the football program’s historic undefeated 2022 season. These four new episodes explore how the team and the community united together during a season unlike any other and features a wide range of celebrity guests who educate and inspire.
Release Date: March 3
New Comedy Specials on Amazon Prime
This month, Amazon Prime Video added a new comedy special from Dave Hughes, for some reason. Here’s what you need to know about it.
Dave Hughes: Ridiculous
Apparently, Dave Hughes is still getting a run and Amazon Prime Video is the team behind it. Despite pissing off pretty much everyone in Australia during lockdown, the sometimes comedian has returned to save face. Judging by the trailer, the results are…mixed.
Release Date: March 24
