Prime Video December 2022 Highlights…

The much-anticipated third season of the action thriller Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan will be available on Prime Video in December. In it, Jack (John Krasinski) races against time to prevent a chain of destabilizing conflicts from resulting in a catastrophe for the entire world.

In Three Pines, Alfred Molina plays Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. Gamache, a character from the best-selling book series by Louise Penny, investigates crimes that take place beneath the idyllic surface of the Quebec village of Three Pines, uncovering long-buried secrets and battling some of his own ghosts.

As Prime Video celebrates the holiday season, “tis the season” for some Christmas romance. The romantic comedy “About Fate” stars Emma Roberts and Thomas Mann as the ideal couple who have never met. “Something From Tiffany’s” is about a woman whose life is turned upside down when she discovers an engagement ring that is intended for someone else; it also stars Kendrick Smith Sampson and Zoey Deutch. And in Your Christmas or Mine?  – at a London train station, young couple James (Asa Butterfield) and Hayley (Cora Kirk) bid each other farewell for the holidays before both of them, in a mad-hurried split-second, decide to switch trains and surprise the other. They are unaware that they have just switched Christmases.

Other titles this month are psychological horror Nanny; British drama RichesDr. Seuss Baking Challenge and Oscar-contending Amazon Original documentary Wildcat.

THREE PINES

AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY FROM FRIDAY 2 DECEMBER

Adapted from Louise Penny’s New York Times best-selling Chief Inspector Gamache series, Three Pines follows Chief Inspector Armand Gamache as he investigates cases that happen beneath the idyllic surface of the Quebec village of Three Pines, finding long-buried secrets, and facing a few of his own ghosts. The empathetic and astute Chief Inspector Gamache is tasked with solving a number of mysterious and perplexing murders in the strange-but-beguiling village of Three Pines. Assisted by his trusted team – the combative and troubled Sergeant Jean-Guy Beauvoir, the intelligent Indigenous working mother Sergeant Isabelle Lacoste, and the accident-prone rookie Agent Yvette Nichol – Gamache and his group are initially treated suspiciously by the village’s residents. Yet despite the cool welcome, Gamache can’t help but find himself oddly drawn to this unusual place and its eccentric residents, including the owners of the bistro, Gabri and Olivier, artists Peter and Clara, bookshop-owner-come-psychologist Myrna, gallery owner Bea, and the irascible poet Ruth. The deeper Gamache delves into the secret lives of these people who have found sanctuary from the outside world in Three Pines, the more it affects him.

Three Pines stars Alfred Molina, Rossif Sutherland, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, Sarah Booth, Pierre Simpson, Frédéric-Antoine Guimond, Julian Bailey, Anna Tierney, Tamara Brown, Tantoo Cardinal, Clare Coulter

She’s ready to say “YES, YES, YES” but as fate would have it, at the same restaurant, Griffin Reed is planning to propose to the woman of his dreams, the drop-dead-gorgeous nightmare, Clementine, online influencer and local model, that very same night. Of course, things go anything but according to plan that evening. And with their respective dubious relationships going awry, it’s ultimately down to Margot and Griffin, two perfect strangers – and two perfect soulmates thrown together by fate – to see what’s staring them in the face…namely, each other.

Hayley arrives at a vast mansion in a small village in the Gloucester countryside to find a place where Christmas does not exist, whilst James heads north to a small semi-detached in Macclesfield and steps into the warm and chaotic pandemonium that only a large family Christmas can bring.
