6 incredible sci-fi shows and movies coming to Amazon Prime in November 2021
“For a few to be immortal, many must die.”
6. In Time
In Time’s premise — that people can buy or steal time to make themselves functionally immortal — is the most intriguing part of an otherwise standard sci-fi caper. Still, it’s a satisfying enough ride if the concept piques your interest.
5. Alien vs. Predator
Alien vs. Predator is less than the sum of its parts, as both the movies it’s based on have a lot more going for them. But if you’re in the mood for a silly sci-fi action flick, it’s more than up to the task.
4. Predator 2
Predator is a classic sci-fi action movie, which is more than we can say for its sequel. Predator2’s reputation has improved somewhat since release, thanks in no small part to a great lead performance by Danny Glover.
3. Children of Men
As bleak as it is beautiful, Children of Men follows the fight to save the last pregnant woman on Earth after 18 years without a single child being born. Along with its heady themes, it includes some of the most incredible chase sequences ever filmed.
Alien, maybe the best sci-fi horror movie of all time, returns to Amazon Prime this month. The disappointing Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection join it, but unfortunately, Aliens is still missing.

1. The Wheel of Time
Ok, it’s not sci-fi, but it’s too exciting not to mention. The Wheel of Time is based on a beloved series of fantasy novels by Robert Jordan. It looks every bit as epic as Game of Thrones, but without the grimdark tone.
