The April 2023 Prime Video programs you can’t miss

In the unmissable Prime Video of April 2023, we have the war film Minesweepers, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to relax, House of Gucci if you like the latest Ridley Scott movies, the ultimate episodes of The Fabulous Mrs. Maisel but also two other series.
Greek salad by Cédric Klapisch who looks back to return to a trilogy dear to the director, and Dead Ringers, a series adapted from the film by David Cronenberg False pretenses.
Succession – season 4 (ongoing)
In three seasons, Succcession became one of the most acclaimed HBO series in the channel’s history. A show notably produced by Adam McKay (The Big Short) which tells the story of the rich and dysfunctional Roy family.
A tribe led by patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox) who has built a huge empire in media and entertainment. While the latter is about to slip away, his four children will do everything to take up the torch. A series with one of Macaulay Culkin’s brothers (Mom I missed the plane), Kieran Culkin. Succession has imposed itself precisely thanks to the talent of its actors. Season 4, currently airing, will be the very last.
Minesweepers (April 1)
Minesweepers (The Hurt Locker) is a war movie starring Jeremy Renner (Avengers, Hawkeye…) directed by Kathryn Bigelow, with the support of her ex-husband James Cameron. During an interview, she indeed confided that her former partner had pushed her to embark body and soul on this project. Big Jim still seems to have had a fine nose!
In this film, Jeremy Renner plays Sergeant Williams James, a demining ace in the combat zone who must intervene in Baghdad. A mission from which he will not emerge unscathed, just like his colleagues who accompanied him in this cutthroat to save civilians.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (April 1)
Very far from the classic of 1996, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has nevertheless pulled out of the game. If the reviews were lukewarm, the film broke the house at the global box office. This reboot with The Rock (Fast and Furious 10, Baywatch: Baywatch…), Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Kevin Hart, made more than $962 million. A very high score which gave Sony Pictures one of its biggest successes with Spider-Man : No Way Home et Heavy rain.
By discovering an old console, high school students are absorbed in a video game and appear there as adults… via their virtual avatars.
House of Gucci (24 avril)
Well that Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner) divides from after Gladiatorsome adhered to his latest films like House of Gucci. Yes, like the luxury brand that competes with Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermès and other Balenciaga. A feature film whose central plot is the assassination of Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver) ordered by his wife Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga). A dive into this family which greatly displeased the heirs.

The Russo Brothers (Avengers Infinity War, The Gray Man…) are back on an SVOD platform. After Netflix, the shock duo therefore signs with Amazon Prime Video for Citadelle. A spy series with Richard Madden (Game of Thrones, The Eternals…) and Priyanka Chopra Jonas (Quantico, Matrix Ressurections…).
The two were agents of the Citadel Agency, an organization aimed at protecting people, before it was taken down by a malicious syndicate. The characters’ pasts come to the surface when an old colleague pops up asking for help.
The Fabulous Mrs. Maisel (April 14)
Recognized as Best Comedy Series at the 2018 Golden Globes and Emmy Awards, The Fabulous Mrs. Maisel is about to end. While leading a tidy life with a husband and two children, Miriam Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), a Jewish mother, will discover a new vocation: stand-up. A reconversion and an approach that will not be to everyone’s taste. This is season 5 which will also be the last. It’s almost the end, so enjoy!
Greek Salad (April 14)
Millions of French people have followed the adventures of Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou, Cécile de France and Kelly Reilly in Cédric Klapish’s triptych – The Spanish inn, Russian dolls et Chinese puzzle. And 21 years after the first part, the director will tell the rest of the story with Greek salad. Consisting of eight episodes, the Amazon Prime Video series convinced Kelly Reilly, Cécile de France, Romain Duris, Kevin Bishop and Barnaby Metschurat to return.
Pretending, the series (April 21)
