Prime Video

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Amazon’s Prime Video is offering a wide range of love stories — from a rom-com about an assistant mistaken for her high-powered boss (Upgraded) to a film in which a woman receives a prophecy that one of her next five dates will be The One (Five Blind Dates). In addition, Donald Glover reboots the 2005 thriller Mr. & Mrs. Smith about secret agents posing as a married couple, while the legendary Jennifer Lopez, 54, revisits her notorious romantic history in an epic music extravaganza timed to her new album. It’s a good thing the rest of us can just settle down on the couch to watch all the high-flying drama.

Coming Feb. 2

Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Season 1

Remember that 2005 Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie thriller about a bored married couple who learn they’re both employed as assassins for competing syndicates? Well, Emmy winner Donald Glover (Atlanta) has reconceived the story as a series about two strangers (Glover and former Pen15 star Maya Erskine) who are thrust into an arranged marriage by the secretive spy agency they joined. In each episode, they face new high-stakes challenges — both in the field and in their increasingly complicated personal relationship.

Coming Feb. 9

Upgraded

This movie, a Devil Wears Prada–style rom-com, lives by the adage “fake it till you make it.” When auction house assistant Ana (Riverdale alum Camila Mendes) gets upgraded to first class on a work trip, a well-connected guy (Archie Renaux) mistakes her for her demanding boss (Marisa Tomei, 59), which leads to a spiraling chain of misunderstandings and opportunities for professional and romantic advancement.

Coming Feb. 9

The Silent Service: The Battle of Tokyo Bay

This new Japanese-language series, based on a beloved manga from the 1980s and ’90s, stars Takao Osawa as the captain of a Cold War–era nuclear submarine who declares his vessel an independent nation — and then battles the navies of both the U.S. and the USSR while heading to a United Nations summit.

Coming Feb. 13

Five Blind Dates

Shuang Hu (The Family Law) cowrote and stars in a film about a 20-something who runs her Chinese-Australian family’s failing tea shop and bristles at attending her younger sister’s wedding dateless and alone. In true rom-com fashion, a fortune teller then predicts that one of her next five dates will unlock both her romantic and professional life. But will she be able to look up from her cups and read the tea leaves in real life?

Coming Feb. 16

This Is Me … Now: A Love Story

Jennifer Lopez’s genre-bending special, timed to drop with her first studio album in a decade, appears to be a full-on cinematic experience ­— with an autobiographical look at the pop diva’s life, including her tabloid-fodder romances. Yes, new hubby Ben Affleck, 51, appears, along with such stars as Fat Joe, 53, Post Malone, Keke Palmer, Sofia Vergara, 51, Derek Hough and Neil DeGrasse Tyson, 65. The musical production numbers, with over-the-top sets, costumes and choreography, look epic.

Coming Feb. 19

Giannis: The Marvelous Journey

This doc follows the remarkable journey of Giannis Antetokounmpo, one of four sons of poor Nigerian immigrants in Greece, who picked up basketball as a boy after seeing images of NBA stars in an internet café in Athens. He eventually became an NBA star himself, dubbed the “Greek Freak” in his adopted home of Milwaukee.

Jenny Slate: Seasoned Professional

Jenny Slate may be best known as an actress in quirky indie comedies like Obvious Child or for cocreating (and voicing) the charming Marcel the Shell With Shoes On. In this special, she returns to her stand-up roots in a routine about the perils of dating and the temptation to stalk your therapist.

Coming Feb. 23

The Second Best Hospital in the Galaxy, Season 1

Keke Palmer (Nope) and Oscar nominee Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All at Once) lead the voice cast of an eight-episode animated series for grownups, playing intergalactically renowned surgeons who must tackle all manner of space-age ailments: anxiety-eating parasites, illicit time loops, and a case that could threaten existence itself. Maya Rudolph, 51, Natasha Lyonne and Kieran Culkin also lend their voices.

Coming Feb. 29

Reina Roja, Season 1

This seven-episode Spanish-language series, adapted from the first book in Juan Gómez-Jurado’s popular trilogy of thriller novels, centers on a hyperintelligent woman who teams up with a quick-tempered cop to investigate the murder of a Madrid tycoon and the kidnapping of the daughter of Spain’s richest family. Expect more twists than a classic churro.
